The restaurant is located at Simpang Tiga Road and named according to Dayak ethnic.It's easy to find the place as just at shoplot corner.
One special food,ie red rice served here; and genuine wild plants or eatable vegetables.
Recently changed hands from a former Iban it's now operated by Cassidy and family. The authentic Kenyah food is delicious and the ambiance of the place is nice and cosy.
Try it out soon, there are many different vegetables mostly local and meat and seafood...are served as well.
Parking is a breeze and its location is sited just ideally between Basaga Lodging and the Spring shopping complex.More
Best experience of local Dayak foods. Excellent food quality, taste and services with friendly shop owner and waitress. We ordered daun ubi and it was hard to find such a tasty cooking method with this kind of vege. Nice soup with heart of coconut and...pork. Others dishes are delicious too. We also ordered the tuak ice cream (photo taken half way eating..ops) which worth for trying.More
The Dayak only recently changed ownership so we were a bit hesitant at first. The restaurant itself is not as charming as it used to be because it seems that the previous owners took most of the wonderful artefacts and paintings that were displayed there...before. The place needs an uplift if they want to maintain their status and price range.
The owner came to our table to greet us. He was very nice and knowledgeable and gave us good recommendations. The waitress was also very friendly and spoke perfect English.
The food was fantastic! The highlight was the fish steamed in a banana leaf. The pork soup was great too and the vegetable dishes were prepared perfectly. The only comments I have is that they ran out of 2 of the 3 kinds of rice on the menu (how can a restaurant run out of rice???) and that they only put the tuak wine to be chilled after we ordered it, so basically we had to drink the whole bottle at room temperature.
All in all, the place looked much nicer under the previous ownership but the food is more delicious now, under the new ownership. I very much recommend the Dayak to anyone who is interested in trying authentic and delicious tribal food.More
The traditional dayk dishes this restaurant serves are quite interesting.They dishes are mostly green leaves and herbs. The taste is quite unique
. The menue comes with history of the restaurant owners and the dyak cousine. We ordered 2 main dishes,lulun and manuok dan libi,...brown rice and paku salad. All dishes were very delicious. The service was great. The restaurant closes at 9:00 PM, but it was 8:15 when we arrived and there was only 2 tables filled and we were the last clients. Prices are higher compared to other local restaurants. Good for vegans and an introduction to local cousine.More
A fantastic place to dine. The owners were charming and courteous. The restaurant has displays on the walls giving a sense of history and represent a high degree of care from the proprietors.
You can get similar food more cheaply and if that’s an issue...then check the menu before ordering.
Come here to enjoy a slightly different experience.More
Not really the full fault of the restaurant but the first time I tried to eat there I arrived at 8pm on a weekday and restaurant was closing. A few weeks later I arrived before 7pm but was closed for private party. The third time...I phoned to check and was told need to order before 7pmso managed to arrive in time and order. The lady owner was quite helpful when ordering dishes but it did seem the emphasis was more on not working the chef beyond 8pm than the comfort of the customer. For mains, mainly pork with some fish and chicken dishes. Plenty of ulam local veggie and fern dishes. Some soups with unusual ingredients. One or two pictured dishes that looked very interesting were not available. A small range of tuak , local rice wine which can be taken as aperitif or wine in two types one for ladies, one men . Price range rm15 to rm40 for dishes, rm80 for bottle of tuakMore
Very disappointing. I’d been really looking forward to this well-reviewed, unique Kuching dining experience. I made a booking for 7.00 pm and when I arrived I was told that the kitchen closes at 7.30, even though the website says 8.30. So, with the cranky matriarch...watching over me to hurry me along, I made my choices. The food came out pretty quickly and was great. As was the tuak. I really wanted to try the ice cream, but was told “no” because the kitchen was closed. It was 7.35! All you have to do is to scoop it into a bowl! It’s not worth the considerable hassle of getting there, as it’s quite a way out of town.More
