I had dinner with my kids in this restaurant. The food prices are affordable and the viands are just what we wanted.

The food is affordable with wide variety to choose from. We've been into this restaurant in the 2nd week Jan 2015 (SM City location) before Sinulog together with our previous office mates (a balibayan from Singapore) for a dinner. The food is nice...grilled squid, mongoes, grilled tuna belly, sizzling bangus, crispy pata and a lot more. What we need is... More

1. Entered the restaurant, nobody greeted us, nobody accommodate us, no crew help us find our seats 2. No one gave us the menu, until such that we asked for it after 10mins (self service menu, I took one at the entrance where menus were the menus are piled) 3. Crew members seem to lack customer service training (some are... More

This is the first time my husband and I tried their Parkmall branch. The first thing I noticed was that it was not crowded considering it was a Friday night. We ordered their Sinigang na Hipon, Rellenong Talong, and turon. I love their turon. For those who don't know, turon is banana and jackfruit wrapped in lumpia wrapper then topped... More

Ate here for lunch on a rainy day. All the food we ordered was good and authentic. The bangus was good, the pork was good and the soup was good. Dining room was comfortable. I enjoyed it.

After four years of visiting Cebu for a total of many weeks, this is my favorite authentic Philippine restaurant. While it is quite similar to the Golden Cowrie restaurant chain, I find that Cinka-an has the edge. This restaurant has a great assortment of Philippine dishes and they generally seem to be tasty and done right. For instance, this restaurant... More

A very popular restaurant with locals, coz they can get local (Cebuano/Phil) food. The menu offers a good range of dishes, though to a non local, some need explaining, so suggest do as I do, let a local order all the food, and you wont be disappointed. The food was hot and very tasty. The service was a little slow,... More

This FIlipino restaurant is very affordable. The delicious food was served quickly. The machine didn't accept my AMEX card but everything else was fine.
