Kuching is notorious for choosing a business name that's irrelevant to its kind of business. So be warned that Taiwan Siau Chu (Taiwan Porridge) has nothing to do withTaiwanese cuisine.

Was just there awhile ago. Came in and saw a bunch of the workers huddled on a table, each one busy with their mobiles. Not even bothered to look up, what more to say take our orders! When we asked, they grudgingly took the orders...More

Not many of the local eateries near our hotel were opened for dinner at the time of our visit. We tried Taiwan Siau Jou and enjoyed the home-cooked Teochew style dinner. Very reasonable prices too.

Quite an experience for having small plate of meat and vegetables cooked in the very best Chinese style. Prices are pretty affordable when you ask for single portion for one person but with many choices.

For about 22 ringits we've tried 4 different dishes with rice and 3 non-alcoholic drinks. That's great value. All 4 dishes tasted nice: pork with mushrooms, pork with lemongrass, buttered chicken and ladyfingers. Staff was attentive and nice. I'd recommend this place.

My favourite place to settle my lunch and dinner! There's over 20 types of foods, rice or sweet potato porridge to choose and "soup of the day" as well. Nice food, Low price, best with aircon enviroment.

This shop is called Taiwan Siau Jou by the billboard. Home cooked porridge with variety of dishes. Not anything extraordinary, but the atmosphere of the restaurant is comfortable. The price is reasonable too.
