We stopped in with some friends. This was our second time to this restaurant. We wanted to bring our friends to try some very authentic Filipino food. We started with the Shanghai Rolls (which we consider to be Lumpia). They were very tasty and very authentic. For our main course we ate family style and had Dinuguan, Pork Adobo, Pancit... More

I was really looking forward to eating here, but the beef in my dish was so salty that it was inedible, the fried egg that accompanied it was like rubber, and the 'shaved ice' in my halo halo dessert had the bulky consistency of road gravel. The people working in the restaurant were very nice, but nice people can't make... More

Not bad, not grand just ok. Only open till 8:00 at night on weekends. Fillapino fare which is different than most SE Asian food. More of a Indian influence. Many options to choose from. Worth a stop by if your in the area.

Last time I was here, I ordered the Daing (that's the fried marinated fish with side of fried egg and rice). I found a "dead fly" under the tail of the fish and just threw the whole thing out. I will never go back to this place. Their food is really just so-so, nothing to write home about. However, I... More

To manage a filipino restaurant and to serve the filipino community will take a lot of courage and patience in this part of the northwest...The ownership and its staff are really doing their best and trying to serve a good filipino food down to the minimal expenses without cutting corners so they can pass the savings and satisfaction to the...

The Filipino food here is authentic. There is no ambiance but fried pork is excellent and freshly cooked. Lumpia and pancit are above par. Kare-kare is very good, it is not the richest creamiest you will find but it hits the spot.
