The lechon kawali is the best i've ever tasted! Sizzling squid is also good. Sinuglaw was just okay not as good as the other sinuglaw i tasted. We also ordered halo-halo but there's nothing special. Service could be improved.

We spent 2 weeks in Puerto in January and ate twice at Balinsasayaw. Both times was good. The coco noodles were fantastic. We also had the BBQ pork skewers and a couple of other dishes, all good. My only wish is that they served beer.

The food offered here is superb with a very practical price. The ambiance is very rural with so many garden plants that soothes a very tiring body. The staffs are friendly. The only challenge here is that the food ordered seems to take quite a longer time delivered but because it is very delicious, you dont mind waiting extra minutes.

I like the chicken wings or legs here because it's delicious and it is good to pair with rice and I like this place because it is an open-air restaurant..

We had lunch so it wasn’t crowded, just two to three tables were occupied. The fish dishes we ordered were fresh and grilled well. The buko juice in shell is worth it. However, the service is wanting. The waiter is not well-oriented of the menu that he had to return to the kitchen twice to answer our query. We also... More

This restaurant is the most underrated amongst the many restaurants in Puerto Princesa. The place itself is excellent as you will be seated in the privacy of your own nipa hut. The food is tasty and cheap too that will really meet your budget while the service is very good. With unlimited rice to go with your grilled chicken or... More

Their price is very very reasonable considering how much food is being served for you, we spent around 1,200 php for 6 persons and that's having 2 servings of maki, 1 kaldero of sinigang, 1 kaldero of kare kare, 2 servings of steaks and of course, unlimited rice!

Horrible service, the staff are not responsive nor do they believe in smiling, such long faces. One do not feel welcomed. (1) We ordered Ice Blended Water Melon, which took 30 minutes to reach our table and by the time we got it the ice has all melted. (2) Approx 45 minutes for a plate of grilled chicken with rice,...
