Nice foods in cozy atmosphere

Philippino and some Thai foods are served in large portions and always fresh. This is a place which you will not leave hungry. And your valet will not cry. Only St.Miguel is missing

So subtlety authentic. Cannot imagine how they organize their fresh seasonings. Got time? Ashraf's and Noonoo ' s are world class business.

The Swan Lake Restaurant is a must visit especially if you happen to visit the Manama City Center. The Bab Bahrain which means Barhain Gate is a tourist destination in this place and the restaurant are just stone throw away. After bargaining in the tiangge for souvenirs and other items, this restaurant is a good place to take your break.... More

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
