We looked for a place that would have a healthy menu so we went to fat choy’s. The food was great and the staff was very kind. The grilled vegetables with noodles was so good we ordered it again.

We came to this restaurant at Lio beach. We ordered sliders and main dish for each person. Everything we ordered was delicious!! No dish disappointed us at all. The bill came for 3000 php, which was very fair (for 4 people). Loved the place! Recommended.

We love coming to Phillipines islands because of beautiful scenery, friendly locals. Most disappointing about Phillipines: food sucks. This place is a rare find of good food. Highly recommend.
