Filipino food with a fusion twist. Even the desserts were more flavourful and sophisticated than you would typically get at other Filipino dining establishments. The novelty of eating off banana leaves with our hands was fun. The range of flavours was divine and in some...More

It was my first time coming here and the restaurant is quite nice. I love the artwork on the walls. We ordered the lamesa salad, the zucchini and mushroom appetizer, the daily special, which happened to be milk fish that day. Then we ordered a...More
