Peridot is a congruent addition to Kuching’s food scene. Established by chef Sham Ahim in September 2016, the restaurant is generating a lot of noise for tasty food and pleasant ambience. Sham honed his craft in the culinary arts in the five star, The Playford Boutique Hotel in Adelaide, Australia. A selfproclaimed passionate person, his love of cooking and people comes through in the excellent food paired with congenial service.
The well-appointed interior is dimmed down, creating a warm and hospitable environment. The chosen decor colours are tasteful without being self-indulgent. Peridot wants you to feel welcome and at home from the moment you step foot inside.
The cuisine covers most preferences with its meaty mains and authentic Italian dishes. Not just a pretty plate, time is spent ensuring depth of flavour and harmony between ingredients. Chef’s recommendations include the delicate Pan-seared Norwegian Salmon, a perfect summer accompaniment. The smoky Grilled Rosemary & Garlic Lamb Shoulder melts in your mouth to go beyond the call of duty as comfort food and seamlessly crosses into the realm of great food. If you’re in the mood for a healthier option, the Roasted Vegetables & Quinoa Salad packs the nutrients and leaves you satiated until your next meal.
Available for private functions, the restaurant is well-equipped to cater for all types of events. Small birthday parties can gather over a meal and drinks, or cakes and desserts to kickstart a bridal shower can be held in the Instagram-worthy “Selfie Spot”. Staff will pour out the same level of care into your event as you would in order to make it as memorable as possible. If you’re looking for a cosy corner to enjoy some soothing coffee, Peridot is an ideal spot for some recluse.
Peridot isn’t like other restaurants. It’s the place to be for good food and a modern vibrant environment. Sham plies his trade delivering modern food and friendly service that leave you with a smile; drop by and say hello!
