    Carvery Restaurant

    In September 2000, Carvery Restaurant was the first place in Sarawak that opened its door to its customers with the Brazilian 'churrascaria' concept. The idea is where servers serve from table to table with skewers of specially seasoned and slow-roasted meats prepared according to the Brazilian barbecue 'churrasco' method. Using savoir-faire showmanship, the staffs slice these gastronomies tableside, making a sophisticated and munificent feast. What’s even more interesting? At only RM88, you can eat all the meat that you can till full. For a fine dining place, that price is definitely a value for money.

    Tips

    You can host private parties here.

    Things to expect

    A meat feast at a fine dining restaurant, all with a great pricing.

    Being the first classy restaurant that offers Dayak delicacies as true cuisine, the.Dyak is run by a chef that was trained with the classic Western gastronomy but uses traditional recipes from Iban (a few are Kelabit, Kayan or Bidayuh), and fresh, organic jungle ingredients to produce delectable dishes contrasting everything you’ve ever tried. The interior is filled with rare native artefacts and the menu urges patrons to have a walk around to view them. If you are interested, the restaurant can happily make you vegetarian dishes, made without lard. The staffs are also always ready to describe the origin of each dish. A meal at the.Dyak (the colonial-era spelling of the word) is not to be missed.

    Tips

    Bored of doing nothing while waiting for your food? The staff will give you some educational reading materials to read about Dyak!

    Zinc Restaurant and BarNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    Zinc Restaurant and Bar is an "urbane" restaurant indeed. The interior dining space is precisely and exceptionally modified from an old shop house, while alfresco dining area is a constructed infill space layered with local wood and covered over with purple wreath creeper vines. The Mediterranean themed menu is brilliant as is though the owners are to be applauded for persistently improving or expanding choices. Drinking a chilled Guinness draft or sipping a glass of beautiful red wine with live music background (on certain days), and soaking in the vibrancy of this place is mesmerising.

    Tips

    On Thursdays, there's a live jazz band and all drinks are half price after 10pm!

    Things to expect

    A marriage of French and Chinese cuisine style where the restaurant serves unique Mediterranean dishes and the bar provides unique Sarawak cocktails.

    The JunkNon halal 01f78899591256b47a2708a65f6538333b86089a30fbd22545a41deece4ea490

    The Junk is not your typical fine dining restaurant. It is chilled and laid back but nothing beats their delightful cuisine that can cost you quite a lot. The setting is all about Old World meets Art Deco meets Alice in Wonderland. It claims a exceptional charisma with its East-West menu and collection of antiques, treasures and well, junk. You might be a bit disappointed about the lack of starched linen, polished silverware and such like, however with the delish offerings on the menu you just will let that little flaw go. From their signature asparagus prawns, to the fusion pizza, everything served here will simply satisfy you. 

    Tips

    Portions are meant for sharing.

    Things to expect

    The lighting, the temperature, the decor, the air temperature, will really make you feel relaxed.
