“Great cheap food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

The best vegetable curry I've had. Their squid calamares is great, too. Too much cheese on the chicken cordon bleau though.
The only negative thing a bout this place is that it'll take about an hour for them to prepare your order. So, be sure to come with friends, or bring a book. You may also order in advance then come back after an hour.

“Good prices but average food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

We were the only ones in the restaurant and had to wait over an hour for the food, which wasnt much to talk about. The vegetables stif fried were very sweet, and the chicken adobo was so-so. Most of what we wanted wasnt available that day, which may explain why we didn't enjoy the experience too much.

“Great food but order early”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2013 via mobile

Great food but it can take some time to arrive. Best thing to do is order in advance. Really worth a visit. The portion sizes are huge and some of the best food I have had in the phillipines at a fraction of beachfront prices. Recommend the chicken curry.

“Must-try restaurant on Malapascua”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2013

the place is not easy to find it by yourself, better ask local people to bring you there. the ladyboss cooks very good Pilipino dishes. and she was kind enough to ask her son sending me back to hotel with motorbike in the dark night.

“Worth the Wait”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2013

She cooks each dish from scratch when you order, so be prepared to read a book or talk (and drink) with friends for a while before dinner is served. But when it's served, it's great! A half-dozen vegetarian items, reasonable prices. My favorites: up,pain soup and the veg curry.
