Spacious, tasty, with friendly service

Kinabuch was recommended to our family of 4 by a friend of mine, and sure enough, it's at the top of the list of places hotels will recommend to their guests. Fast service of affordable and tasty fare, with a good blend of local fare with Western and Chinese options on the menu. Very large... read more

The food here is very delicious and good to your budget. Serving is big so its very good. The crepe and halo halo is a must here! Love the ice cream. Service also good and they also accept credit cards. Place is big so don't worry if you are in a big group they can accommodate you.

We went on a Monday night, full house but the service was still fast. The food was good, everything was for sharing. It's good value for money. The staff were attentive, quick, and friendly but it was noticeable that they were understaffed. Their restrooms are clean. The whole place has a nice ambiance. There was plenty of parking space.

As with most places in the Philippines the staff were very friendly, however unlike the rest of the country the service was fast. The manager offered to stream a premier league match for me and even put it on the big screen. Whilst the stream suffered due to poor internet he kept fixing it. Had probably the best burgers (chase... More

Ok meal, lots of it I guess they're catering for the Americans! It wasn't bad but nothing special, outside seating with giant screen showing basketball, again with the Americans!

Ate here a number of times during my stay in Puerto and was very happy with the quality of the food. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area.

For a first night dinner (and traveling as I was with a lot of first time visitors to Palawan), the food served on the buffet was a let down. Even if it was a choice made for us by the local tour operator, it is still a menu offered by the restaurant. Poorly prepared, and inferior in taste, it is... More

I tasted their Crocodile sisig hesitantly. It was good. If you're not aware that it's a crocodile you would hardly taste anything odd. Their food are exotic. Try it!

I went here because I saw it was packed with people the night before. I arrived about 630PM and I'm glad I did; 7PM the place was packed from front to back and this place has a lot of tables. Good food and great price. Dinner for 2 was around 1100 pesos and we ordered too much to be honest.... More

upon reaching Puerto Princesa we were told to visit this place for some dinner. We ordered porks and kinilaw. My brother ordered crocodile sisig didn't have the guts to eat or taste it haha. I love the mango shake. Cottages were okay too. Good for family but due to many guests food were served a bit late. Adios!
