Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Went to their branch at Tulip Street, but they are serving cakes only. They only offer food at their Marfori branch but strictly for takeout. We went to their branch at SM City Davao and tried their Creme Brulee Cake and Sans Rival. The cakes...were good, but we tasted better somewhere else.More

If you are craving for lechon kawali, Lachis would surely satisfy your palate. And their cakes are very delicious, not to mention that the price is very affordable. Only downside is the limited number of tables to accommodate their patrons. But you may call in...advance to book a reservation which they wll hold for 10 miutes only from your reserved time.More

I thought that Dumaguete’s sans rival was tops until I tried Lachi’s flaky and delicious sans rival! Now it’s the best one in my book. 😊

We were brought here on the recommendation of our driver during the last day of our vacation in Davao. There were so many interesting food choices, especially the cakes. It was so hard to choose. We each had a different cake and just tasted each...other's. Everything tasted great! Even had carrot cake for takeaway and ate it in the airport while waiting for our flight. Regretted buying only one. The entrees were also good. I found the serving to be generous and the wait, reasonable. BUT that was because we went before it was lunch. We were already seated by around 11:00. By the time lunch came, the restaurant was full as it were a week day. The ambiance was also nice inside the restaurant. The tables are close together because the space is not so large.More

We had their unforgettable ribs and it was good. It reminded me of how we cook our pork ribs in the states. It was tender, melt in your mouth and the sweetness and tanginess blended in just right. My wife introduced me to eating LAING,...and I just loved it! Pecan Pie, green tea cheesecake and classic chocolate cake are a must try.More

Ultimately a family haven for warm home cooked meals and the best array of desserts in the city. Quaintly sized yet perfect for close knit gatherings, the restaurant offers just ample space for loved ones to have a festive dine in together as I’ve witnessed...last night being my first to visit their shop. They have mouthwatering desserts to best take home as pasalubong. Highly recommended.More

I would give a 5 star if not weren't for the smaller portion. The owner is quality focused so the food coming out of kitchen remains high consistency in taste and quality. I am a chef, with this high level of consistency in food quality...so I know the owner is personally working back there. I ate here about 10 time during my stay in Davao. Apparantly the owner encourages his staff eating here too as the recommendations from the servers were consistently great choices. High recommended. Slightly pricy because of the portion but well worthwhile for an owner who cares about his food for his customres. I actually like the sponge cake more than the San Rival if I spell it correctly.More

Although known for its desserts, Lachi’s serves up a lengthy list of comfort food rice meals at affordable prices. My mom opted for the Mild Laing (a spicier option is also available); which made for a hearty rice pair. It simply consisted of flavorful gabi...leaves stewed in a light coconut milk broth which was well-balanced in flavor, and was delightfully lighter than what I'm accustomed to. I opted for the Unforgettable Grilled Pork Ribs, which came clothed in a finger-licking good barbecue sauce. The meat was tender, but not fall-off-the-bone tender. The ribs were tasty and well-marinated that you won't find the need for more sauce; but what made them unforgettable for me was its value-for-money rather than the taste. The highlight of the meal was definitely its Sans Rival, which effortlessly beats out all the other sans rivals I’ve tasted. To be honest, its Sans Rival didn’t come with any frills or surprises. It simply consisted of layers of cashews, meringue, and butter filling; but the end result was simply perfection. This was amazing, and I would definitely fly to Davao City just for this. A Durian variant of their Sans Rival is also available.More

A cozy coffee shop in the city proper of Davao. The staffs are very welcoming, attentive, kind, and helpful. The cakes (Classic Sansrival and Five Chocolate Torte) I've tried with my son does not only looked inviting but succulent as well! The cake pairs perfectly...with a cup of Cappucino I ordered! I will definitely come back to this place to try other cake variants when I visit Davao again.More

Love the "laing". It's the closest version of the one my father cooks in Quezon province. The Caldereta, Melt-in-your-Mouth Roast Pork and Country Chicken Mozarella are kids' favorites. A slice of sans rival or cheesecake with coffee will be enough to lift up your day....Always love to be at Lachi's but reservations might be challenging if you don't book ahead. Good thing they have a new branch nearer SM Ecoland (Tulip Drive) so we have choices :-)More

A must visit restaurant in Davao City. Lachi’s has the best grilled pork ribs aptly named Unforgettable Pork Ribs. It is juicy, tender, and perfectly cooked. For the price, I would say that this particular dish exceeded my expectations. The serving of pork ribs coupled...with rice is generous. Their deserts particularly the cakes are very affordable! Of course, when dining at Lachi’s, you have to order the star of their restaurant which is their Classic Sansrival.More
