good place to hangout with friends, beers, and good foods... they have budget hotel too on the 1st floor while this restaurant only on the ground floor. Watch out from the lorry came down from the nearby construction area, might want to consider sitting inside.. Smoking area, and must try Tomato Crispy Noodle with ice green tea lemon or maybe...

The place is well maintained and the kitchen and premises are hygenic. The cheese baked chicken rice is delicious but heavy. Try the kueh teow (fried flat noodles) or the crispy tomato mee, you wont regret it.

Have eaten here, at this popular local eatery. Superb portions and great for sea food. Even the western style chicken chop and chips is delicious. Special deals on beers, too. Friendly staff that you can have a laugh with, very efficient service too.

I've not had the chance to sample a wide variety of the food on offer but that is only because I very quickly discovered my favourite dish there which was the seafood fried rice. Warning to some that it is quite spicy but thats what I love about it.

A nice place to chill & hangout with friends. I just love the environment of this place. A bit of oldschool design & its unique. Price of foods & drinks are reasonable. Location is in the middle of Kuching town. Must try foods when you visit John's Place is the fried kutiew with its sambal. Superb!
