Great food with reasonable price. Must visit for tourists to taste local foods.However the service need some improvement especially the waiters not organized (food delivered not to the right table)

Great place recommended to us by another traveller in Borneo. The barbecue lamb was amazing (spicy) as were scallops, and Tomyan soup. Nice setting across the river behind the kampung.

My colleague and I had a feast here for dinner yesterday! We tried the ayam pansoh (chicken cooked in bamboo), umai (raw fish salad), midin belacan (wild fern in shrimp paste) and grilled scallop. Each dish was a culinary explosion, with different flavours. Never had such diversity of flavours in a single restaurant. Must, must try!!

The location can be a bit tricky. Need to use waze to get there at least once. Back to the restaurant, it was beautiful decorated in local native designs and architecture. It felt like it is in a long house, hence, the name barok. The food is nice, very nice actually and the prices are reasonable

Love the relaxing ambient. And love the gravy of "ayam ketuk". Hot, spicy and sweet... Just a walking distance to Mira cakehouse

We went here during Ramadhan, so everyone is lining up to break the fast after the evening prayer. The place was very busy. You order your meal on entry {can be tricky, if you don't know the local dishes}, then find a place and wait, hoping that you get what you ordered. The staff seem to have a good memory... More

Found this gem by accident, while taking the the ferry from the Kuching waterfront near the Hilton. Be brave as the ferry is very basic and is an experience in itself. 1MYR for five of us (2 adults & 3 children) pay more if you want, but worth the ride to get to the the restaurant. The restaurant is a... More
