I like properly prepared onion rings and crispy pata. Kinabuch does it right. Reasonably priced. Be patient, because they do get busy at times. Why are they busy? Simple. They have good food.

This restaurant seem to be a local as well as tourist's favorite. It's huge and even for a party of 8 we didn't need reservations. If you are looking for good Filipino fare, this is the place to go.

Cambodia's famous beef loklak finds home in this place. While Inhd my fare share of other favorites like gising-gising and well-done salpicao, I tried a new flavour this time, so I took Beef in green curry, and I was surprised that it taste a lot like lok lak. Its spices, mint, and curry as perfect. Southeast Asian flavours have really... More

This is really a resto favored by the locals, with room to accommodate some 400 guests at a time! Reception is well organized, guests are ushered to a 'waiting area.' Senior citizens and handicapped are led to seats while waiting, but waiting is not long, as the mayor domo tackles large groups first (usually reserved) and then couples and small... More

This place is very popular. The environment is good, but the staff is overstreched and cannot handle the amount of people coming to eat here, so the service was not great.

Highlight recommend this restaurant for dinner and drinks. Very large possibly 300 seats, inside and outside dinning. If you get there after 7.30pm you might have to wait for a table. Quick excellent service.

My friends and I went to this place new year's day and there were lotsa people. The music is nice down tempo EDM and not harsh to the years. We always ordered kilawin (ceviche) and its always fresh and tasty. Eggplant with tomatoes, onions sesame oil are tasty for appetizers. Stuffed chilies are good, fish and pork chop were tasty...
