Just plain delicious

My family enjoys eating here. We like the ambience, it's relaxing. The food is delicious and fair priced. Our favorite is the Samurai Salmon with the refreshing Ginger Lemonade. A must visit if you ask me.

Budget friendly with a touch of finesse. The menu is quite limited though. There is not enough parking space for four-wheeled vehicles.

I came here only once before back in 2012 and we came here just as they opened for the day. I remembered being absolutely blown away. So when the opportunity came to come back to dumaguete, i made sure our first stop was to Kri, the place was exactly how i remembered it albeit a bit warm. I ordered the... More

The food was adequate but the service fell down at every step, from being seated all the way to paying the bill. There was literally one other table being served and we were clear that we only had one hour total. But the waitperson took ten minutes to stop by our table to take the order, and ANOTHER TEN to...

Have been here a few times as solo, couple with groups. Have always enjoyed the food here as you get affordable western or asian dishes and nice chill ambience in an aircon restaurant. Staff was helpful and friendly and able to accomodate bigger groups (I had a group of 14 one day) and everyone was able to get their food... More

The infamous KRI is quite making a buzz in the local food scene. Not only for its sumptuous selection or artsy interiors, but also for its notorious and distinct serving style (they usually serve in big plates-quite oversized). Overall, gourmet food at its mid-range best.

I've frequented KRI many times since it opened a few years ago. The staff are always friendly and offer second to none service, The menu is an impressive blend of rustic, Asian and Western with a unique flair of originality. The prices are reasonable and the atmosphere remains relaxed and charming.

KRI has a wide variety of options on the menu, all of the ones have tried have been delicious and fairly priced. My last visit I had the burger pictured, I believe it is called the truffle bacon burger and it was very tasty and filling although I was told it was coming with fries but served with banana chips...

We waited two hours for our food to be served not to mention we had to do several follow ups just to make the waiters not forget the orders. The food was very satisfactory but the service is terrible.
