Kinabuch is one of Puerto Princesa's best restaurants. They serve a wide variety of food at affordable prices and they have very well trained staff. The restaurant is huge and can accommodate hundreds of people but you never have to wait long for your food. I went there last night with 6 coworkers and we were so hungry when we... More

We do have fond memories of our night at Kinabuch. We didnt make reservations so we were afraid we will not find a table since the place was packed, but we did, pretty fast. The place is huge and the staff is really overworked but try and most of the time manage to do a stellar job with attending to... More

This place was recommended by the hotel and it was quite good! Since it's outside, nice weather is helpful. It wasn't too breezy, cooled as the evening wore on and a jacket was needed. (Yes, there is roof-cover for rainy times.) Deciding on which entree was the challenge since the menu was so extensive. It was timely and was good.... More

Definitely a must go. Good fresh food and prices. Good staff and service. We tried several dishes, all good and served fairly quickly even if the place was crowded. Grilled blue marlin is good id you like a boneless fish dish.

This place was super busy, but staff managed to take seat us take our order, and we were eating within 20 minutes. Prices were extremely reasonable. For croc sisig, lumpia, chicken curry, two cokes and a halo halo, it came out to like $24. I'd definitely go back if I was in the area.

We went about 5:00 on Feb 14. Not very busy but lots of staff. Ordered tamilok, onion rings and value meal BBQ chicken and rice. Tamilok and onion rings came fairly quickly and we're good. However, took almost another hour for the simple chicken, which after that time was not fully cooked. We are residents here - won't likely go... More

Over the years I have been here several times,but this time will be my last.we ordered chopsuey for two. What arrived was a mess of day old vegetables and two or three pieces of pork that tasted like it had been reheated several time. Nothing on the plate was fresh, even the garlic rice that came with it did not... More

The place is generally a meeting place of your usual mix crowds!- yuppies, tourists, locals, men in motorcycles, women- name it! ambience is very friendly--- for a... More

They have wide selection of menu items. But never fails to fill your stomach with savourful meals; thought it might have the opposite effect on your pockets. Service is good too though place is always crowded. Kare kare is really good. Also the tanguige fish.
