This place is for hungry people where you can eat all you want. The food choices are varied and every day they change the menu.

At first we thought that their dishes were good. The cashier told us to look "if their dishes were ok with us" then we inspected the food display and so we agreed. But as we eat, they barely replenished the food whenever the display got empty. It's contrary to other buffet set-up where the food which is almost depleted are... More

No other fruits except water melon. Price is also cheap but "THE SERVICE IS SO POOR". The restaurant manager is so unprofessional, she is busy texting while on... More

We went here as a group of six to have lunch. We were early and the buffet has just been set up. Management, seeing that there were some people ready to eat started by having two of their servers pray in front of the buffet. Soon after we started getting our food which were mostly native dishes. There wasn't anything... More

The foods are more interesting every time you visit here, you may choose not to mind your diet after seeing it. Try to visit Davao City and don`t forget to drop by at Kuya Ed`s Bahay Kainan.

They have the cheapest buffet in Davao. For your price you get decent food recipes and they have wild selections of viands. They offer good reception for your event right for your budget
