Great food!

This is the place where I first ate Tamilok! or Wood worms. At first its kinda eeky and gross but as you taste it.., its not that bad! Food here is really great. And they open late at night. I also love the nipa huts where guests dine. Don't leave Puerto Prinsesa without visiting Kinabuch or else... read more

When I visited with family we were excited to taste the local cuisine only we couldn't because they had run out of most of the seafood on their menu.

Came here for dinner and this place was busy. Had a bit of a slow start with getting a menu, but once I got my orders in, the service picked up. I wanted to try the Tamilok which was a local delicacy, as well as the crocodile sigsig. The Croc sigsig was delicious, somewhat of a good surprise. The tamilok... More

Went to eat because of the look and the menu. After ordering drinks we attempted to order our meal and they were "out" of Tuna and Shrimp, and did not have WiFi. Looks can be deceiving.

Excellent dining experince in Puerto Princesa. It was hands-down our favorite place to eat. One member of the family hates seafood, but another can't live without it, so it was a challenge to find a restaurant that truly satisfied all of our tastes. But Kinabuch is it. With its wide variety of food on the menu, everyone could find something... More

The price i should say is cheap for the big amount of serving we got. Pork sisig is more on the sweet side. Their number of food servers do not equate the number of guests frequenting their place, hence expect to wait a little longer before food is served.

Crocodile sisig, tamilok and sizzling blue marlin are perfect combination for first timers in this wonderful restaurant! Wide screen TV for sporting events adds great value to the place!
