The only vegetarian restaurant we found in Puerto Princesa, and from the outside you might easily pass it by, but fortunately we didn't.

This place was at the most, and being very generous, mediocre. We went with a party of 5 and the service was subpar. Out of the 7 or so dishes we ordered, 1 was pretty good. The rest were plane, really small, and just kind of boring. The tempeh fries were pretty good. The chimichanga was the size of an... More

I'm not a vegetarian but had heard great things about this place and wasn't disappointed. The salsa which accompanied their tortilla chips was one of the best I've had - really tasty. The pasta dish was nice too and prices were budget friendly. Take note of their somewhat sporadic opening hours.

The food was good, friendly service, and it is nice to have a good vegetarian option in Puerto, but I was disappointed because many things on the menu were not available. Try the Ima's shake and bean burrito - these seem to be the staples and were both affordable and delicious.

It so happens that even after being self-confessed non-vegetarians, my wife and I do not indulge in beef and pork. Give us chicken and thats it. But while visiting Puerto Princessa, which like entire Philippines has beef or pork in almost all its local cuisines or ones adapted from western ones, we had a hard time finding ‘only-chicken’ dishes…leave along...

How did this restaurant got many good reviews? The food was just ok. Nothing special. We had the enchilada and chimichangas. The smoothies were good and the service was friendly but that's about it. I wouldn't recommend it to my friends sorry

My girlfriend is vegetarian and finding good vegetarian restaurants is always a bit of a challenge. Ima's is admirable in their mission but we both agreed that the food is not very impressive. It's reasonably priced, but having tried their veggie steak, stuffed cucumber, tempeh fries, and an eggplant dish, none of it struck as better than average. Perhaps other... More

thank goodness there's a vegan food in town.. the place is homey, staff are friendly and the food is great for a cheap price. the co owner even took time to chitchat and ask us about the food and about our stay.. he even tells us a story about the humble beginning of the restaurant.. keep it up
