The Environment of The Tree Top Kuching
The cafe is a raised wooden house build beside a slope of a hill. Hence there is a indoor component, which is the wooden cafe house and outdoor component which comprise of the open balcony and the lower level platform. The construction is almost all made from wood and leaves.Purely Natural.
After you walk up the stairs, you will first encounter the outdoor open wooden platform with iron barrels and wooden box. This is actually part of the outdoor dinning area where visitors can get very close to the outdoor natural environment. It is shaded by tall trees and surround by bushes.
Visitors love to have some wine and beer while gathering with friends and chatter throughout the night. You can feel the cool jungle breeze and hear the sound of water from the artificial waterfall nearby. However mosquitoes sometimes can be an issue for some.
You need to take another wooden stairs to reach to the indoor part of the cafe. The cafe house is entirely made out of wood. You will still be amaze to find such amazing wooden house in the concrete urban Kuching City.
Before you enter the cafe, you need to take off your shoes. This is to make sure the cleanliness of the interior, but according to them, this is how the previous generation did it – back to the classics. You can choose to sit on the floor mat or on the classic wooden furniture when enjoying your meals.
You can feel the chills on every step you made as the wooden floor is cool in the night. It is quite a refreshing experience after we had our city life for so long.
Around the cafe there is many classical ornaments and decorations that are from the past generations. It creates a “fly back in time” feel when you are in it. The surrounding is so quiet. The surrounding trees had shield out the sound from the busy street nearby and the light pollution from the surrounding city scape. It is clearly a hidden paradise in a busy city.
The wooden walls is also been decorated to its fine details. Do look around when you dine in. There is allot of nostalgic elements in their decorations.
Overall the dining environment is exceptionally well. We do recommend visitors to come here and try their meals in the rainforest here. Nature lover will sure love this place.

What we had tried
We had tried out some of their simple dishes. We heard their 3 layered pork was nice and hence we ordered one for our self. They may take some time to prepare the grilled dishes, however when the dishes served hot and crunchy, all the wait is worth while.
The Tree Top Greens is their version of Garden Salad. Greens, tomato and Raisin is a great match. It is mouth watering too.
The chicken wings is also crunchy and tasty. It is Golden Grilled and stand out from the greens.
We save the best for the last. The main reasons for the visit is for their crunchy and tasty 3 layered pork. It is grilled till golden yellow and match well with the chili sauce too. You may need to wait some time for them to make a perfect grill, but at the mean time, enjoy the beautiful environment.
This place is well recommended for friends and family outings, as well as for couples who wish to enjoy their date in a nature themed environment. It is also the best hideout cafe if you want to recommend a cafe to tourist and visitors from abroad. This place emphasis on the natural environment around us, and it is one of its kind in Sarawak, which Sarawak itself is famous for its natural beauty.
Do make a reservation with them if you wish to have a party, gathering or wedding photography at The Tree Top Cafe.
