I am very impressed with the design, almost everything is made from junk. The atmosphere is somehow superb. Foods ans drinks were a bit expensive but that is what you expect in the popular place like this

We were looking for western cuisine as my husband had not been feeling too great - ordinarily we would have been looking to dine with the locals! The pizza & pasta were very disappointing - pretty tasteless & one of us had finished eating before...More

Comprising 3 shophouses along the heritage row, this is a Western fusion restaurant. It is normally packed on weekends and is a popular night spot. Interesting interior with a lot of antiques and interconecting rooms. Food is pricey for Kuching standards but portions are generous.

We did not order any wine. We actually find their concoction of mocktails quite interesting.

Both. You can get a glass of the house for RM30 and a bottle can cost less than RM200. Depends on the selection, price range for bottle can be between RM200-400.

Description
The Junk is an eclectic collection of five establishments carefully cultivated within the confines of the heritage buildings of Wayang Street, Kuching. With the proprietors' personal curation of actual antiquities and memorabilia over the years, The Junk houses remnants from days gone by, each with their own eccentric story to tell. Since 2002, the award-winning Junk Restaurant specialises in the fusion of Italian, Western and Asian cuisines. They also offer an impressive list of handmade pizzas, even adding their own twist to conventional toppings. Whether it is an intimate table for two or a party of 12, Junk Restaurant has several dining areas to cater to your needs. Red Room started as an after dinner lounge area. It now serves as a karaoke lounge. In 2006, Junk Bar started as something more akin to a speakeasy. It would be easy to miss this unassuming bar accessible through a hole in the wall from Red Room. Don't let the narrow walkway and rambunctious regulars intimidate you as it is perfect for quieter nights out. Since 2008, Backstage has been one of the most popular night spots in Kuching. On weekends, resident DJs spin through the night. When crowded, it looks like a party in an antique shop. Be prepared to stand as the crowd pours in throughout the night. Choose your poison and dance the night away. If you want something milder, head next door to the newly renovated Living Room. The perfect blend of a lounge and an al-fresco garden, choose to sit by the water fountain or in the actual living room on the first floor overlooking it.
