Kare kare was super yummy! it tasted like how my grandma cooks karekare the hard way (grinding rice grains, peanuts) It tasted like it was made from scratch or is it? hehe. However, the Laing (another favorite) was not too tasty. Price of food is reasonable and place has a nice ambiance. Parking is risky.

The owner of this cafe is absolutely artistic. Serving authentic Filipino food, the ambience of this cafe is superb and the staffs are very friendly and efficient too. If you arrived in the evening for dinner, you can find a talented pianist dishing up a few beautiful songs on the piano. Simply brilliant!

I have been going to this resto since almost from the time it opened. Well maybe just a few years into its opening. It started as a little hole in the wall restaurant serving good food at reasonable prices. Over time, the restaurant grew and transferred to a nearby (across the street) location. The food remained consistently good that's why... More

I was surprised when I first entered the resto...it didn't look like one. But was surprised with the good food and the nice ambiance. With live piano music. Ideal for dates and family gatherings. Most importantly...The best Kare Kare! Oh and I enjoyed the palitaw in lihia also for dessert

We went here for dinner and aside from having my first dine-out with my family and girfriend together wherein some came from the US so that makes it memorable but to my disappointment, I cannot identify a single dish which is so unique or excellent for me to come over and over again at this place. Considering that I, too... More

The service is really good. We had an early dinner and one dish we ordered isn't available until later but the one who served us made an effort to make it available. The place is nice, there are many thing to see - it's fully decorated. I didn't find something special with the food though.

We had dinner with our balikbayan high school friend as the place was recommended by one of our friends who already visited the place. She ordered for us too, having all Filipino dishes with up to date presentation yet remained true to taste. They have our all time favorites like Kare kare, Sinigang na baboy, Pusit... Coffee and pudding for... More

We came here for the second time for lunch on a Sunday. The Filipino buffet is excellent and offers a variety of local dishes, from soup and salad over breakfast items and main courses to desserts. Service is attentive and friendly. The decoration is very unique and makes you travel all across the world. I will definitely come back and... More

You will not likely find any other restaurants in Manila, and perhaps in the Philippines, that resembles this one. There is a chaotic, eclectic profusion of decorations from all around the world; from chandeliers to plates and cabinets, to art. In the middle of this are about 30-40 tables, each also unique in their chairs, tablecloths, and decorations. The menu... More
