On a quiet afternoon I decided to try the soup that everyone is craving about and I must say that although it was hot (temperature wise) the way I like it, it had absolutely too much sugar. I am not sure why the cook would saturate the Tom Yum soup with so much sugar when the natural sweetness of the... More

The food was tasty amd theres a lot to choose from. The server aas kinda suplada. I didnt say anything because Im afraid she'll spit on my... More

No words can describe this place, except for just an excellent place to get some really good Filipino food! Every time I visit Bahrain, this is my #1 spot on my list to get dinner at. All the dishes are made from scratch once you order it, and the taste is remarkable! Pork, chicken, beef and seafood, anything you can... More

I was introduced to this place by a friend. He stated that the food this time was not as good as he had last time, but I enjoyed it. The waitress said there was usually more patrons; I assume that because it was Ramadan, many people were on vacation. The largest clientele of this restaurant is the Filipino from Saudi... More

The last time we were here in Bahrain, we made it sure that we do not missed to dine here in Swanlake. We take Sinigang na Baboy, Lechon Kawali and grilled pork (it is unfortunate that pork is not available across the bridge). Drinking Sago reminds me of my childhood days in school in 'Pinas. Taste of food is good... More

If you want some Filipino food that is restaurant quality try this place. The price is quite high compare to other Filipino resto in the area but you will be satisfied with the taste. If you like lechon kawali, they serve one of the best in town with big portion its good for sharing for up to four people. Even... More

after having read the reviews I was keen to find this place at the corner of the gold souk just behind the entrance to the souk. tricky to find but we managed. place didn't look very clean but frequented by Philippinos which I always take as a good sign. Food was mixed quality: very good papaya salad, good beef and... More

We had a lunch with my wife in Swan Lake. It was totally empty at 1 PM. Tasty thai - and philipino - food, good service and reasonably priced. Also the location is good; near Bab Al Bahrain in Manama Souq. Recommended !

This may be the most famous Fil-Thai restaurant in Bahrain, but for some reason this definitely can't be the best.. The food was nice especially the barbecue and the crispy pata. I also like the thai cuisine. Serving is good for 2-3 so be sure not to order too much. The portion or the cut of the meat is quite... More
