We visited with friends and family recently. Food was delicious, service was great and the host was very welcoming. The only downside was it’s a bit out of the centre of town and an uphill walk. Didn’t affect rating though, we worked off our dinner!

Wide selection of western food with some unique blends of local and international such as the laksa pizza, topped off with attentive and friendly service. Terrace dining available and quite private as well since the restaurant is set in a cup de sac.

If you are going to eat in Kuching, save one meal for here. While from the outside the setting is nondescript, inside reflects a young, contemporary aesthetic. The evening we were there (a Thursday night) there was a jazz vocalist and her accompanist, the owner...More

The food there is from a variety of different cuisines, mostly Mediterranean, and even then the variation is impressive. Pleasant outdoor eating experience, although it is very expensive. Some of the items on the menu are a bit underwhelming though.

zinc has a special and unusual happy hour, for cocktails and gin-tonics only, from 9:45-11:45pm... actually the best time for a chill-out drink or three!
