“Tasty sweet chilli chicken”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2013

I ate here twice, mostly for the sweet chilli chicken dish, which is the tastiest chicken I've had in quite awhile. Overall, the food was very good.

I was taken aback the first time, however, when the main dish arrived before the soup (which I believe should have been served first). My friends commented that their rice was a bit hard.

I would recommend anyone visiting this restaurant to ask up front for water for all patrons, as the waiter does not take the initiative to ask if water is required.

“Must Try Yummy Filipino food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2013

The food here were delicious especially the baked scallops, lechon kawali, crispy pata, imbao soup, pinakbet and calamasi juice. Great one-stop place to savour the local Filipino food.
