We stumbled upon this place to eat as I asked the hotel owner for a good place to eat. He recommended this as a good for value place to eat. We ordered Lechon Kawali, Sisig, a platter of rice and Green Mango shake. We enjoyed the food and I enjoyed the prices! Beware of tricycle drivers going back to your... More

The food is great especially the bilao special. Their food is not overpriced. Place just needs a little bit of cleaning since the wooden furniture are kind of dusty and smelly but tolerable. Will definitely go back there.

If you have 4 or more people this is the restaurant to go. The boodle feast is tons of food with crabs, fish, chicken and a mountain of rice for like 20 USD. It was really good and really fun.

Maybe some of the negative previous reviews was few of the unusual events. Our dinner here although we're in a hurry , the food we ate was delicious. Price are reasonable and the servings are enough to 2 to 3 per viand. They cooked our food on the spot so you really need to wait for it. While waiting for... More

Was surprised at all the recent bad reviews of this resto. We happened upon it while walking along Rizal Avenue and we needed a place to eat dinner. We all ordered the combo meal: veg. kare-kare with pork BBQ and unlimited rice and a creamy pork lengua dish. The combo meal sounds like it wouldn't work but it did, we... More

Food was not that good. Poor service. You have to ask twice, even thrice for them to serve and refill your water, or ask ice as their fruit shakes were not cold enough. Background music was too loud you have to raise your voice to be heard by the person in front of you. I find the place not conducive... More

We arrived at the place expecting great service and food. We went at around 5:20 and were taking pictures of the place when one of the staff members approached us just to tell us that the resto is still closed and is not open until 5:30. We said "okay" and took more pics instead. It WOULD have been better if... More
