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

Native dishes particularly from the Philippines is their specialty. If you miss home-cooked pork dishes (specially if you're a Filipno) this is the place to be. Better take home some pork asado. The TV is distracting much more if you don't understand Tagalog. Price is not too high.

Lovely little hidden gem in Manama souk. Wide range of thai, filipino and chinese dishes at reasonable prices. Take the tom yum soup, thai green chicken curry and some shrimp rolls!! Every dish is enough for two so keep that in mind when ordering although you can ask for a doggy bag if you order too much. Enjoy.

If your looking for a Filipino or Thai dish that best suits your families big appetite, then this is EXACTLY the place to be... The restaurant is located in the OLD SOUK area that is very accessible and if ever you find yourself lost? Just ask the people in the vicinity, they'll tell you the way. The restaurant is not...

It serves decent Phillipino & Asian food, a bit too oily for my taste, but for sure it is the best place to eat at 4am in the morning when you feel hungry after partying all night

Tom yom soup is the best in here, papaya salad a distant second. Overall its average but if you are into thai food you must try it out. Its open 24 hours and its located behind noonoo exchange the one opposite ashraf next to bab al bahrain.

The portions were quite large and tasty. Service was a bit lacking but it looked like there was maybe 3-4 staff members (including kitchen) for a place that could seat approximately 30-40 people.

I said crispy pata number two because for me they have the 2nd best crispy pata in the island. The restaurant itself is neat and spacious enough. But it's the parking that stopped me from going there :(
