I can just go back there because of their Thai Crispy Papaya which is close to an authentic Thai Papaya salad, I really love how their sauce was made and I wouldn't mind paying 280 pesos for that, just for that! As for their braised pork belly, boneless chicken, beef murtabak, Roti special as they term it (with coffee sauce and bananas), sago gula melaka, I think that the pricing is a little bit expensive for their normal taste.

Most of the dish we had was delicious. The price was just a little bit higher than the other well known restos.

Heard some good reviews so i went there for dinner with my family,we ordered papaya salad coffee pork,nasi goreng and peppered squid,first where can you find papaya that is fried and cost 280 pesos?pork that becomes bitter because of coffee,Peppered squid with lots of peppered and little squid and nasi goreng that for them is good for 2 to 3 person but actually is only one large cup of fried rice,our bill total 1,200 pesos for 3 person,if its good thats acceptable but not,definitely we will not come back and surely go back to Happy tummy just across the Road beside Wright park that serves also Thai dishes more delicious at half the price like tomyam soup at 150 pesos and 450 pesos at Chefs home,Papaya salad with catfish at 120.

It took us a couple of loops to find them as they had since moved from Outlook Drive to almost directly across the Mansion. The place is quite small but endearing in a cozy country-cottage way. For me, the menu was just large enough and balanced such that you will find something for everyone to like. When the food came, we weren't disappointed. Everything was tasty. We tried their house specialties including the papaya salad, tom yum shrimp, black pepper squid and the fish in red curry. Our one disappointment was that they had a no-alcohol policy. This was a pity since the very savory Asian fare would have washed down quite well with wine or even beer, not to mention that the chilly Baguio air and alcohol would have made a perfectly heady combination. Because of this, we chose to skip dessert and transfer somewhere else where we could enjoy some wine. We would definitely come back for a quick meal, perhaps for lunch, but it just doesn't feel like a leisurely dinner when alcohol is not given as an option.

i cant even remember the name of the dish.. All i did was ask chef alvin to prepare for me their specialty.. And it all ended up just perfect. It was the first time too that i appreciated curry. I told the chef that i dont like that particular herb, however, he told me that he can prepare it the way that i would forget i actually said that i hate curry. And i just love what he prepared. The presentation of the food is actually very apetizing. Ive been to a number of 5 star dining, but this particular place is something to look forward toand worth advertising. Ill definitely come back.
