Unfamiliar with the wedding venue choices in the cat city (Kuching), Sarawak, I had to perform a more thorough search for the available and popular options there. I came across the Banquet Chinese restaurant located at the Third Exchange Commercial Centre. This contemporary structured restaurant is a pleasant venue for your wedding reception or engagement party. A stand-alone building with its own waterfront esplanade and lush landscaping, the Banquet is one of the most preferred locations for wedding events. The biggest hall could accommodate up to 55 tables.
Its team of creative chefs is there to impress you with their vast menu of Chinese dishes. They change their menu selections from time to time to ensure that the re-visiting customers get a taste of their new flavor and scrumptious delight. The wedding food is yummy, their dessert especially. Couples were happy with the portion being served on the wedding reception. Generally the feedback has been positive, and the encounter with this restaurant was usually a pleasant one (other than the dummy cake)… I love the arrangement of the ceiling down lights that look like a bunch of pretty stars.
I have been curious how different is the wedding food in the east. I have been to Kuching and savored the kolo mee which you can find practically everywhere. How about food at wedding banquet? Similar cooking method and taste?
Good location and Suitable for Big function. Was there for a wedding reception. The premises is reasonably suitable for big function for private and commercial. Though parking maybe a problem if there is a concurrent function held. Foods served are mostly Chinese, you can also request for other menu to suit your function needs.
This is a Chinese restaurant serving mainly local-style Chinese food. Nothing special about the selection of food on offer. Had a wedding dinner there that served a 8 course meal with dessert. The quality and style of cooking are just average noting spectacular. But pricing of dishes depending on portioning required are down to earth. Service staff are average with a fair bit of part timers (young adults). Restaurant ambience are conducive for dinner.

It is a sweet and simple venue for a minimalistic wedding celebration. The design is not too fancy nevertheless this place is special and modern in its own way. You are entitled to a list of banquet benefits such as complimentary invite cards, dummy cake, champagne glasses stack, the usual stuffs. Not sure what are the terms though, have to check with them. The invitation cards are nothing to shout about – rather ordinary looking.
