For vegetarians, there's no other choice but to visit Ima's. There are not too many vegetarian restaurants in Puerto Princesa. Still, not bad considering the lack of competition in this particular niche.

Another regular one here.. For one to truly appreciate the vegetarian food that they serve, you have to come here with an open mind. Don't get me wrong. They serve delicious food even without the meat and all. You will appreciate that vegetarian dishes can be tasty after all. Well recommended are the Mexican dishes in the menu like the... More

The good reviews on this place misled us. I think people get excited by the fact that a vegan place in philippines is a true finding. Small portions, the food tastes of nothing and the final bill was ridicolous for what we had.

There is a lot of choice on the menu so at first we didn't even know what to choose. But there was so many different cuisines which I think was the problem. As nothing was that special. It was all pretty tasteless, we tried the burrito and the bean burger, the bean burger had no flavour whatsoever. The starter of... More

Always a plus to find a restaurant in the Philippines that serves a good healthy meal. Nice variety on the menu. Went for lunch a few times and it was always good. Tasty and nice to know they aren't cutting up chickens or pigs on the cutting board.

In the philippines it is always a challenge to be sure food is vegetarian. No problem here! This was our second visit, the first time was three years ago. We enjoyed it then but this time felt better. It looked like the seating area had been upgraded. The menu was also more extensive. We tried the burrito, quesadilla and tofu... More

I was with my parents when I visited PP. They just wanted to check on Tita Ima who's my grandfather's classmate and later discovered that she has a resto that serves pure vegetarian recipes.The food is great and I'm not even a vegetarian. My parents loved the dishes, too! My father, a food lover, tried different recipes. It was my... More

On our way back from El Nido, we had a couple of hours to spare in Puerto Princesa (before catching a flight to Manila), and stopped by at this friendly, family run veg place in downtown puerto princesa. The food is all fresh and healthy: The tofu burger was particularly yummy (we ended up ordering a 2nd one!), and their... More
