This is really a resto favored by the locals, with room to accommodate some 400 guests at a time! Reception is well organized, guests are ushered to a 'waiting area.' Senior citizens and handicapped are led to seats while waiting, but waiting is not long, as the mayor domo tackles large groups first (usually reserved) and then couples and small... More

This place is very popular. The environment is good, but the staff is overstreched and cannot handle the amount of people coming to eat here, so the service was not great. We had to keep reminding them about our order. That didn't botter us much, since we were not in a rush, nor starving. However, the main problem was the... More

Highlight recommend this restaurant for dinner and drinks. Very large possibly 300 seats, inside and outside dinning. If you get there after 7.30pm you might have to wait for a table. Quick excellent service.

My friends and I went to this place new year's day and there were lotsa people. The music is nice down tempo EDM and not harsh to the years. We always ordered kilawin (ceviche) and its always fresh and tasty. Eggplant with tomatoes, onions sesame oil are tasty for appetizers. Stuffed chilies are good, fish and pork chop were tasty...

Went to kinabuch. I liked the atmosphere with the tv playing sports but that was it. My chicken curry was less than average, and would not get it again. But I would only recommend this place if you have about 4 hours to spare. Sat down and took about 20 minutes to get a menu. Took about 35 more minutes... More
