Great seafood!

The service here is a bit slow, but the seafood was great. Love the decor and outdoor atmosphere. Worth a visit!

Kalui had amazing food with a unique style and flair that separated it from the other restaurants in Puerto Princesa. Our first visit, we both got the sampler, and everything was fantastic. The price of the meal was reasonable, and as we found out on our second visit, Kalui typically has the items on the menu, which is something that... More

Even though our reservations were screwed up they kindly sat us outside at a romantic table under some plants. We like to try different dishes so we went for their economical sampler plate which was mostly fish... Our favorite was a piece of sugar cane that was wrapped with fish and a delightfully flavored curry coconut sauce. Even the simple... More

What a great ambiance, great food, and great price. Yes you will pay slightly more for the same food in other places but I guarantee the taste and setting will sell you. All bamboo floors and water features throughly make this a real chill/relaxing place. You may need a reservation if you are going with 3 or more people but... More

On a busy night, Kalui will be packed and can run out of food so call ahead to check if they have everything still in stock and make a reservation

The first thing that marked in me about this place is that before you can come in, you have to leave your shoes outside. They have cabinets for your shoes, and numbers for your cabinets. The whole place is made of bamboo and woods, I think. They also use fruits and vegetables as a design around the place. They have... More
