The wait for the food is very very very long and the food tasted regular food. Sure it was tasty, but it wasn't exactly special to warrant it extra notice.
The place looks very carenderia. Monobloc chairs with plastic table covers.
The services was extremely horrible. A waitress spilled water on an uncle's camera and she just said to wipe it with tissue. Another waitress spilled soy sauce and she just attempted to wipe it away but ineffectively just spread the soy sauce around, making the spill much worse. On both accounts, no one said sorry.
If you're not up for a very special lunch or are just not really picky about the food, then this place might be nice for you.

I discovered this "paluto" place in D'Talipapa last September. You can buy your fresh seafood from the market place nearby, and then head to one of the surrounding restaurants to have them cook according to how you like to eat them. We chose Sababi because they always had so many people...we thought it was bound to be good. And we never went to any of the other restaurants after that. We'd buy our crabs and mussells, and head straight to Sababi. Their cooking price is a bit cheaper than the other places. Their recipes are also tasty. Just don't ask them to cook your crab Chili-crab style, they use banana ketchup in the recipe, unfortunately, which does not stay true to the chili-crab taste. But go for any of their butter-garlic combinations, whether with lemon or oyster sauce, they make those good. For scallops, opt for simple butter or baked with a bit of cheese. They also make a good clam soup :)
