The resto is within the new food and entertainment hub of the city which offers local cuisine with a twist. Menus were affordable and ideal for family and groups who wanted to explore Illongo culinary.

Loved the food. Everything we ordered was good. The triple mango salad was good and very unique- using green mango, yellow mango and dried mango and with bagoong dressing. We also had the sizzling eel. Which was very tender.
