Authentic filipino food near Bab Al Bahrain near the entrance to the souk. Having been there on a number of occasions, pretty much ever filipino dish they serve is great. The only one I took issue with was the pirk barbecue stick due to the large amount of fat (a common problem in Bahrain due to how expensive pork is... More

This place is better for Thai food than Philipino, just don't expect authentic Thai food. The portion sizes are enormous. A starter, main and rice dish are good for 3. The service is a bit slow, and obviously much more so if the restaurant is busy.

The food was great especially the Sinigang and Adobo but the service is turtle walk that will make you drool maybe because of understaff. The place is nice with native decorations that makes you feel the Filipino concept.

As we walked the souk in Manama, we came across this nice restaurant. The venue was a mix of Asian and Filipino delicacies. We has the sizzling crab and ki lao in. And of course bulalu. The crab and ki lao in were good but I've had better bulalu. Never had ki lao in, nice contrast between sour and sweet.

I visited swan lake on so many occasions in 2015 mostly during lunch breaks, the tom yum soup is the best I had in Bahrain. Service is very good, other dishes are alright but as good as the tom yum soup. The place also offer philipeni food but I didn't try

Swan lake offers genuine Filipino flavor at reasonable prices. The caveat though is that at times the service is agonizingly slow. Good place to go if you're looking for a leisurely meal.

A fabulous menu of Filipino and Thai foods that have your motuh watering. It is a very quaint place just off the main drag but easy to find. The interior is quite cozy for a group outing or a quiet dinner for two. The food is amazing, especially the pork section of the menu.

The best place for a walk in Sumter bathe spring Azaleas are breathtakingly beautiful. A must see. To see the Seans close up in their feeding trays is fun. The kids loved that. They like the talking trees.
