Went straight here from the airport since they open early at 6:30am. Ordered the Classic Rice Bowl with Shrimp, Pinsec Prito and Gulami (not in photo). The servings were all good for at least two and were very cheap. Really was impressed with their Shrimp Classic Rice Bowl - aside from the generous serving of shrimp, it also had broccoli... More

It's food. Filipino and Chinese style. Quality good, taste good, looks nice. The place is a bit untidy. Didn't want to use the Toilets. Staff is bored, serving takes long.

On my last day in Davao City I searched for an authentic Chinese restaurant to dine in before my noontime flight back to Manila. I boarded Uyanguren Route 10 jeepney and asked the driver to board me off Chinatown. Upon arriving at the Friendship arch I started looking for a place to eat (mind you, it was quite hard to...

Another mainstay restaurant of mine when I visit Davao. I was amazed after my 2 year haitus to see a very different place, I was expecting to see a typical Chinese eatery consisting of circular table and metal chairs, not anymore. The new intrior has been modernized, keeping up with the times. Ummm, I can't say I'm jumping for joy,... More

Typical philippino restaurant where the food comes out a bit at a time. This is one influence the Chinese owner has had to concede which is a pity. The sizzling steak came with mild chili pepper instead of bell pepper as the menu suggested. No big deal. Overall the food was tasty but not enough for for me to return... More

When I want pansit lomi and siopao, I head for the New Davao Famous Restaurant. I am sure they have other items in their menu but since time immemorial they are famous for their Lomi! Come and visit!
