“Healthy Glow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Vegetarian meals in a quaint environ. Eco friendly, garden seating, good vibes through and though. Be aware though- no a/c, parking is a bit hard, although they have their own space; you can here the street traffic zooming by. Good food and laid back vibe makes it worth it though.

“In the quaint part of town... a veggie resto”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

If you're visiting the Diliman Area, near the Univerisity of the Philippinies, it would be good to go around in a bike or experience the Ikot jeep for a short tour of this part of Quezon City. Just off the road is this quaint little restaurant LIKHA DIWA serving a wide variety of vegetarian and seafood dishes.

Try their Vegetable Kare-kare, made with peanut sauce and coconut milk, Pusit-sisig and Pechay balls for your appetizer.

They have tables wihere you can seat on cushions.
Parking might be an issue specially on a Saturday where they have a BrazilianLunch Buffet where all bikers go after rounds at the U.P. Oval.

Try it on your next visit.

“The Best Vegetarian/Pescatarian Restaurant in Diliman/Katipunan Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2014

This is the best place to have delicious vegetarian/pescatariian food in the Diliman/Katipunan area. Although the restaurant is small and quirky, the food packs a hefty, tasty, and satisfying punch.

The best way to enjoy their food is to go on a Saturday, when they have their once a week buffet served from 11:00am-2:00pm for lunch and 5:00-8:00pm for dinner. For the very low price of PhP200 [less than US$5], you get a scrumptious spread of 5 dishes and a dessert. The best thing about this is that every Saturday you get a different buffet theme [May 31's was Bhutanese food; my favorite so far has been the French buffet]. Whatever the week's theme, the food is always delightful and you can tell by the flavors that selection and the creation of the dishes to be served is a labor of love.

The place is easy to miss if one isn't familiar with the location. Here is a link to their Facebook page with directions for getting there via jeepney and a map for those with cars: https://www.facebook.com/likhadiwacafe?sk=page_map

Even if you are a meatatarian, I guarantee you'll enjoy the food and be happily vegetarian for that one meal. Make sure you also try their quirky fruit juices [PhP65-75] such as the banana-malunggay-calamansi or the cucumber lemonade [love this one!].

“Awesome buffet for Php 200!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

I went to one of their Saturday buffets, and I enjoyed all the Malaysian food I can eat for only Php 200! I love how they change their Saturday buffets weekly, and how they sometimes pick cuisines that you rarely find in this country (Mongolian, Burmese, Bhutanese, Russian, Indonesian, Tausug and more!) It's perfect for an adventurous eater such as myself. :)

“Not easy to find, but it's worth it.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

I like food to be not only good, but interesting. This place has a very casual decor, partically outside. The bases of the vegetarian and seafood cuisine is Filipino but with influences from other cuisines. Ingredients are organic and local. I've been there several times after discovering it one day when I was walking along C.P, Garcia.

Likha-Diwa is open from Mondays-Saturdays, 11am to 10pm. Tel. No. 925-5522. It's located at 1 Lt. J. Francisco St. (along C.P Garcia Ave.,Diliman) Bgy. Krus na Ligas QC.
