Delicious food and a great vibe! - Edit

This is my go to stop when I’m in Kuching. The food is delicious and the crowd is always great fun. And profits go to a great sanctuary. Guilt free fun!

Pros: Chilli Cheese Fries!!

Sensational vegan food! - Edit

Really great atmosphere complete with fairy lights and chilled music to bob your head to.
The vegan mac 'n' cheese is INSANE and I would recommend you order lots of it! This is not a restaurant but you can order enough sides to fill yourself up for dinner complete with some lovely vegan beer!
Friendly and helpful staff who really take an interest in who you are and will generally go above and beyond to ensure you are having a nice time.

Pros: Delicious vegan food, Chilled atmosphere, Educated staff (they know their food menu very wel

Cons: A little on the expensive side but worth it, No burgers when we visited which is a shame as we

All vegan! - Edit

Staff are friendly, volunteers are friendly, beer selection is nice (lots of beer brands that aren't common in Kuching) but food is mediocre. Ok for the price though, for western style food in Kuching. Food selection isn't much, they are after all bar snacks but a burger and fries was enough to fill me up. Love the fact that proceeds go towards the Matang Wildlife Centre, same as Monkee Bar, but not sure how exactly it helps. Hopefully the owners can share what the proceeds contributes to exactly because there is nothing much the public can see at the centre. If visitors aren't aware of the programme, they would actually think it's a zoo! So love the idea behind this, wish we can learn more about the project though.

Same row as the Barber Cafe & Bar, The Junk restaurant, Cha Bo and Bla Bla Bla. Find the signboard that says "TIGER GARDEN" in neon lights (it used to be called Tiger Garden and they still maintain the signage)

Pros: Proceeds go to wildlife rehab project, Friendly staff, Decent price

Amazing vegan food and beers supporting a great cause! - Edit

Bear Garden is by far my favourite bar and place to eat in Kuching!
EVERYTHING on the food menu is vegan and I can safely say I have tried everything and it's all incredible! On top of this they have a wide selection of beer, ciders, wines and cocktails (a few of these are not vegan though like Baileys) All drinks and food are served byreally friendly staff at unbeatable prices. If this isn't already a vegans dream come true, at least 50% of the profits go to support a sun bear sanctuary hence the name Bear Garden.
This place seems too good to be true but it's not and I highly recommend you check it out. Make sure you visit when you're super hungry and try as many things on the menu as possible!

Pros: Delicious vegan food, Friendly staff, Very affordable prices

Cons: Not always packed with people (which is nice)

Nice Snack Bar - Edit

I didn't expect much, because its a bar that offers some snacks. And thats all you get.

I had the spring rolls, the chili cheese fries and the tortilla. I wasn't hungry so it was ok.
The food itself was nicely decorated tasted good and the staff was very friendly.

So definitely go there but dont go there hungry. :)

!!!its not located where the pin is shown on the map. It is at the top of the triangle where the streets join together!!!

Pros: part of the money goes to "projectorangutan", friendly staff & nice place, veganised classics like chili cheese fries

Amazing bar supporting local wildlife - Edit

All the food on the menu is vegan and really tasty. Most of the beers are vegan too. 50% of the profits go directly to local conservation and 100% of all merchandise sales too. Great atmosphere with local people and tourists mingling in the bar and the intimate garden outside. I've tried most items on the menu and will definitely be going back for more

everything is vegan! - Edit

The entire food menu is vegan, although they don't advertise that fact. At all. I had the chilli cheeze fries and black bean burger, so good to have some totally vegan western food. Burger patty is very good but isn't served with any sauce or relish which would have improved it for me.

Google maps thinks it is somewhere else which meant it took me a long time to find it. Apparently uber drivers also struggle to find it so it's not just me!

Cash only!

Western food, hits the spot - Edit

All food served is vegan and if you order two dishes, it should be enough to fill you up.
Food is a little pricy compared to other local places (average rm10-12 per dish) but 50% of the profits go to The Orangutan Project.
Staff are friendly and all speak English very well (half the staff are Westerners and half are locals).
The only place i've found in Kuching to have vegan-specific things like cheesy sauce!

Pros: Everything is vegan, Kitchen is open late, Good if you need a western vegan food fix

Cons: More expensive than other local places
