Great location, great food, attentive friendly staff. Our late morning brunch was absolutely delicious. If you're in Kuching and want a recharge, call in here and enjoy the cool vibe.

Whilst the waiter was very helpful and accommodating, the Fish & Chips and the pasta was cold by the time they were served, the new pasta dish was also poor quality. This was mentioned when we paid the bill, to both the waiter and the...person behind the till. There was no real concern for the customer, no offer of recompense, only an excuse that the chef was very busy. Will not go back and would not recommend the place.More

Fantastic Western food at good prices, the fish and chips are the best I've had in Kuching... the closest I've had to the real deal back in the UK, and almost everything is home made from the burgers to the sausages and even the flatbreads....Really friendly owner and staff, great service and a really chilled environment. If you just want to go for a drink they have a good variety of beers and wines (and even a happy hour), and it's a great place to go to mix with the locals, expats and tourists as they are so friendly and more than happy for you to join them. I highly recommend giving this place a visit, I've been here many times and I'm sure you'll love it!More

Southside is a very welcoming place with great service staff. Very friendly people that genuinely make you feel at home. Great food and plenty of it. Ben, his wife and team are a true representation of hospitality in Kuching and you’ll not be disappointed. I’ve...not experienced their theme nights myself but listening to the crowd that was there the night before they had their Arabian Night it’s always a blast (each time different theme) and they go all out to make everyone have the time of their life. It’s just a short walk across the road to stroll along the waterfront .. or stay on to chat the night away with some new friends made during your time there. Definitely worth a visit. 👍More

This was an experience of a lifetime. The staff was very friendly and courteous. You get personalized service. The owners each get to know their customers by name. This is not just a cafe it’s a home away from home. It’s like “Cheers” where everybody...knows your name and they’re always glad you came. They’re always trying to do something creative like having themed nights. I was fortunate to be a part of the Arabian night where the owners were dressed in costume .In summary it’s a place to get great food, great company and great conversationMore
