Here at The Granary Kitchen + Bar, we believe in:

* Being creative and adventurous with our menu items

* Creating everything from ‘scratch’; No added nothing!

* Providing excellent customer service

Our Space

The Granary Kitchen + Bar has an iconic look and feel, and  is one-of-a-kind in Kuching. A beautiful building, that once served as a grain warehouse in the early 1900’s, The Granary was tastefully renovated, maintaining much of the original brickwork and finished with recycled doors and windows. A large and unique space, The Granary is the perfect venue for weddings, photo shoots and special occasions.

Who We Are

We are a melting pot of cultures and experiences; from Sarawak, South Africa, New Zealand, America, Nepal, Korea, China and Hong Kong. With differing backgrounds, our team is passionate about the experience & flavours of food and drink, and we are focused on making our mark on the Kuching food scene!

The Founders

It would be difficult to find business partners with backgrounds more different than Joanne & Emily. Their partnership hinges on the passion for good food + drink and the desire to do something different in Kuching.

After years of planning and dreaming; an opportunity came knocking and the rest, as they say, is history. When we started this journey in 2015; we never believed that it would be as good as it is today, serving up some of our best meals ever and thriving off very special and passionate talent.

Charles V. Rakesh | Sous Chef

Charles is originally from Miri, Sarawak and he loves chocolate (especially green tea KitKat!). Having experienced life as a chef on the seas (he worked the cruise ship lifestyle before The Granary); he's pretty sure all you need for survival on a desert island is a lighter, Swiss Army knife and fishing hook! 

Monica Nani | Pastry Chef

She may be tiny, but she is the force behind all our baked items; from cakes to pizza bases and all the in-betweens like burger buns, empanadas, tarts and etc! Also known as Mon in the kitchen; her go-to snack is Fish Crackers (from Mukah!) and she cannot live without her pillow if she were ever stuck on an island!

Nabin Sen | FOH Shift Supervisor

Nabin is from Nepal, but he now calls Kuching home. Nabs (we gave him an alternate moniker!) is a huge favourite with customers; his genuine work ethic and impeccable service just shines right through. Always ready with a smile and cheeky quip; his favourite dish is Nepalese noodles and if he gets stuck on a mountain somewhere; he'll make sure to have food, shelter and his wife (in that order!)

Ewan Apandi | FOH Shift Supervisor

Ewan is also a Kuching boy, a proud Sarawakian. Together with Billy + Nabin; they have changed facets of The Granary to an incredible restaurant led by some brilliant and passionate people. One of his many talents include being able to sleep for days (must be a hospo thing!) and another chocolate addict; we know Ewan can survive on beef burgers and sleep!
