Good food and lot of serving

Been here several times and the prices are very reasonable, and the food is much better than most Filipino restaurants. The quality is acceptable, the atmosphere is just okay, but if you're looking for a place that is a good price performer, this is the place.

Grilled seafood dinner. Bird's Nest soup. Nice. But i wish they had air-conditioning. Value for money for sure!

If you don't order anything else, just order this. Pure pork goodness! It's a nice comfy place to have good Filipino food.

Aside from specialty, they also have a set meal with unlimited rice for a very low price which i like it so much. You must try the Bulalo Noodle Soup, sooo yummmyyyy, and The Buko HaloHalo... I didn't rate this 5-star because it seems too long to arrive the foods we ordered. The staff were so polite and helpful. I... More

There are two branches, we went to the one on Manalo street (not the one on Rizal in the City Centre) The little huts are really cosy and its set in a lush tropical garden. The food is simple but mostly very tasty. I especially liked the Calamares. Portions are generous and it is pretty inexpensive. The service was a... More
