Been here whenever I want some chicken bbq and fresh fruit shake. But you won't find in any other place the Buko Pancit which is a must try ü

Their food is way better than Ka Lui. We didn't even expect that their serving size is so huge we have to take out some. The place is an open area, so if you're dining at night better put an insect repellant before visiting. Their beef kare-kare is a must try! The garlic shrimp and their balinsasayaw fried rice is...

We went to this restaurant for lunch after reading a magazine article which  recommended it for birds nest soup. The food including the birds nest soup was okay, not expensive, and nothing special. What drags the rating down was the lukewarm service, which made us feel that our custom was perhaps inconvenient to the staff who showed very little or... More

I went here with my boyfriend and I definitely enjoyed it! I love the ambiance. Very Filipino and the food is very good as well. I believe we ordered good for 3 persons since most of the dishes are for sharing, and I was surprised we were able to finish it all (and even added extra rice!) I can't breath... More

At edge of town center, but short trike ride there. For large numbers, make booking as it is very popular. Prices for tourists are good, food is good and nice and beers are coldish and good priced. Service can be a bit slow when it is busy. We ate there 2x times and wait time for table varied. Going early... More

We tried Balinsasayaw Restaurant last year (Company outing :)) since it's near Susan's Place and that it was recommended to us. The place is an open-air native style restaurant (as I recall), in my opinion, I think the place needs renovation (like renovate the restrooms, the tables, chairs, etc.) and maybe add a bit of modern touch to it. So... More
