Great menu and located near the waterfront! They had locally inspired vegetarian and meat options. Both were delicious! There's also fresh juice and refreshing coffee and tea options. Fair prices and generous serving sizes. Highly recommend.

Has been our go to restaurant for the local specialities of Kuching. The food has not disappointed, very tasty, good portion sizes, great value and a friendly lady who runs the place! Still working our way through the 'must try' options on the menu, with...two nights left should about do it! The Sarawak Laksa, Pop Rice and another just can't remember have been great. Also discovered a new favourite juice, calamansi - like a small lime but with orange flesh, very refreshing with zing!More

After reading such good reviews on here, we tried this place ourselves opting for Special Laksa (the most expensive of all the dishes offered). There was a lot of it, but the prawns were overcooked, rubbery and flavourless. The service was poor with only 2...staff who were constantly staring at their phones.More

We were recommended this eatery by our guide. He said that this is the best place for Sarawak Laksa so we tried. Indeed it was delicious, portion is good, price is 6.50 ringgit only, enjoyed it very much. Not too spicy. Also tried the wheat...glass drink which was refreshing. Come if you want to taste the local delights. Just a simple eatery for good local laksa.More

Absolutely dreadful, curried chicken was only curry powder, slopping around in a fluid the same consistency as water. As was the Pepper chicken. Why the reviews for this place are quite good amaze us. NEVER AGAIN!

Worst food I have had travelling SE Asia in two months. Not sure why this place is rated so highly. Yes it is cheap but so are other great restaurants in the area. I had the curried vegetables, an easy dish. Absolutely zero taste like...the veggies were boiled in water. Had a side of fried chicken... same thing fried bland tasteless chicken. Not sure how two extremely simple dishes to cook were so horrible.More

I would strongly recommend a Sarawak Laksa from Borneo Delight. The food and drinks are really good and the choice is quite big. For 20 MYR you can have a big meal with a local drink. The staff is really friendly and the overall dining...experience was very enjoyable.More

Great little place that serves tasty authentic Sarawak food at a very reasonable price! Singapore noodles were great but was very jealous of the laksas around the table, would recommend!
