If you have no place to go or are just in town for a few nights, Kinabuch is a place to go. Don't get me wrong, they have good food but not great food that you cannot get in Manila. For the foreigners then this is one place to go.

What they have going for them is their location. They're very accessible. Good place to hang out for drinks. Their food is pretty average.

we were here a couple of times last April 2014 the restaurant only opens late afternoon til late night and when you pass by, it would really invite you in. it has a very tropical ambience to it but looks sophisticated at night too. Every time we pass by at night, it's always filled with customers which is why it's... More

We ended up in Kinabuch on our first night in PP (it was one of the few places open after 10pm) and were not disappointed. The food was great and the service was lovely. The atmosphere was also nice. It is a touristy place but there was always a good mix of Philippino and foreign guests so we felt reassured... More
