Highlights: a. I love their liempo, bangus bistek tagalog, chicken teriyaki and adobo shred rice meals. Generous servings (can be for 2 pax) and comes with iced tea. b. Their waiters are impressive. They know how to make small talks not just to Filipinos but also to foreigners.

Whenever I dine out, I avoid Filipino food because we cook them at home anyway, but my friend recommended this place. I should've listened to her a long time ago. I ordered Vegetable Kare-Kare and Grilled Chicken in Tamarind Sauce and I was ever so happy with the food. The serving size is good for 2-3 people and the taste... More

They don't know how to prioritize and assign tables,so customers ended up leaving. Staff were not service oriented,felt like we're not customers there. Next,the food. Price is very affordable but the... More

Went to the restaurant in Robinson Place maybe 6 times this year (2016). Why so many times when there must be dozens of other restaurants in Robinsons? Because of the Laing, a taro leaf dish, with coconut cream, shrimp paste and some spices (not too heavy tho). So delicious in fact that I have bought 3 Taro plants and am... More

we went there for a quick, no-nonsense lunch. menu choices were good, but the quality of the food reminded me a school cafeteria. service was a bit slow, but we were there for a weekday lunch and the place was almost full. clean, brightly lit. if you're not expecting 5-star service and gourmet quality cuisine, this restaurant should satisfy.

Try these three and I think you'll understand why I keep coming back. i usually dine at their greenbelt branch and there are a lot of people during dinner time. There were several... More

lunchtime with the family + delish native dishes = priceless bonding the gising-gising is really good, and we even requested for a meatless mix. the sotanghon soup was equally tasty plus the bangus teriyaki and biangoongan. we left with happy tummies, hopeful to burn the calories after several rounds walking around the mall. will definitely be back.
