Large menu and generous portions. Tasty Filipino flavors. Good noodle dishes. The chicken and pork adobo did have some large pieces of fat and gristle to eat around. Be interesting to try some of the other dishes.

Everytime I dine in Emaimelei they never disappoint us. Big portion of food and real value for money. What else can you ask for? Awesome service! I really recommend this restaurant even I worked in a hotel and restaurant industry. For me this is the...best even I get a staff discount on our restaurant that I worked for. Job well done! Great!More

While centrally located in Koror, it is off the main road. Parking can be a challenge but the food is worth the try. Warning, portions are large, so come hungry.

Ordered a sizzling spicy fish and received just so so dish. Nothing much to write home about. Inside of this place is just very ordinary casual. Price is ok . A local person highly recommend to us.

Emaimelie came highly recommended by locals. We found the food ok - the grilled fish was overcooked for our taste. Service was good.

Really cheap and big portions! The price Quality and quantity it's really good. If you want to stay in the palaun ambience this is a really good place in the center. They have to restaurants next each other, just the one close at 14 and...opens at 17, but where the Bakery is, still open. You can eat every time.More

Tried Asada Fried Rice, Chicken Katsu, Sizzling Mongolian Beef and Emameilei Fried Chicken. Very big portion and taste really good. Iced tea is refillable. Staff were friendly to me. Waiting time can be long but worth the money. Best for budget travellers.

Cheap food but terrible service. I have eaten here a lot and wait time is really bad but, worth it for the food. However, recently it took almost an hour for my omlet to come my last time there and it was very gross. I...let the manager know and she got mad at me and said it was my fault for not telling them right away and eating it (I had 2 small bites) When I addressed the wait time, she said that was normal for that dish.... It's an omlet.... it does not take almost an hour to make! CAN'T TAKE CRITICISM!More

The meal is big and cheap. The taste is ok. Always full of people and the staffs not friendly sometimes. If you come around 7 pm, you might need to wait more than half hour for food. They also sell breakfast, bread and cake.

Cheap eats tough to come by in Koror - this place was great. We got some lumpia, sashimi, crispy pork belly, a few beers and a large portion of chicken fried rice for $40. Everything tasted great. Enough leftovers for a second meal. Wish we...would have found it sooner.More

We discovered this very small eatery at the recommendation of our Taxi driver, Benedict, who was a great help and loved to tell us about his beloved Palau. You will likely find that this place is the best choice for dining because it is the...only restaurant in town that doesn't design its atmosphere and menu for tourists. This place unabashedly serves the locals tastes. The food was PLENTIFUL and very well prepared. We had the Beef Tapa which was really delicious. We also had the delicious fried rice (one order serves five people!) There is an extensive menu and prices are very inexpensive. After eating at other dive related restaurants we wished we had stuck with Emaimelei. They also have an adjoining bakery. Trust us, you can try to justify eating at higher end places but the food will still be better here.More

I think so, you just have to call in advance depending on the cooking time of your food order.
