We actually found this restaurant by accident. We had taken a small local ferry boat across the river with the intention of eating at the food court there. However, the food court was not at all appealing, so we continued our search and stumbled across My Village Barok. The restaurant is in a ramshackle wooden building, full of character. Much... More

For an authentic Malaysian experience of delicious cuisine then look no further than My Village Barok. Located across the river, accessed either by car or sampan boat, enjoy the real taste of Malaysia. I highly recommend the scallops, which is one of their signature dishes. Beautiful dishes, great authentic ambiance and beautiful river views.

Cross the river to the other side of Kuching and you find this restaurant behind the food court. If you like hot and spicy, try the Nasi Ayam Ketok. A definite must to try. There are also lots of seafood dishes.

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
