We came back here for a lunch and was satisfied with the service and attentive staff. Food was delicious and served on time. The price was just worth the food ordered for our lunch and the extra ordered food for our take out for the onward travel. Recommendable.

A nice local restaurant. The food is good. The menus are in Tagalog so it can be a bit hard to order unless you are with a local. I went twice - once with locals and a second time on my own. Also check the bill against the menu. Mine was correct but I was advised to do it by... More

Best Goto and Tokwa't Baboy in town. (ask for the extra tokwat baboy sauce ;) ) They open early in the morning so you can have breakfast there. Best for rainy days and merienda too :)

I went here on a Sunday morning aroung 930 am and you could tell that it's a busy time. I ordered arroz caldo, tokwa't baboy and siomai. Order took about 15-20 mins which I found too long. Unfortunately, my siomai did not arrive. Nonetheless, the food was great! It isn't the best arroz caldo I've tasted but I would get... More

I'm biased because Dencia's has such good memories for me. I grew up in Davao and when the family would eat out after Sunday mass, we almost invariably ended up eating here. This is old-style Chinese panciteria (noodle house) at its best. The food is served family-style so order a lot. I recommend any of the fried rice, the lumpiang... More

We come here for the congee and tokwa't baboy. They're classics! The recipe has stayed the same throughout the years. Hope it stays that way.

Dencia's may already be considered a venerable institution in Davao City. Have been a loyal customer of Dencia's lugaw and tokwa't baboy from the time I was first introduced by my relatives in Davao City in 1975 till today,I never miss eating in Dencia's every time I am in Davao City..Their dishes have not changed over time, even if they...

The old Dencia's appear to be completely gone. Service is awful, and food will make you sick. At least 6 of us in just one evening from two different groups suffered from gastrointestinal sickness. I personally threw up a few hours upon getting back to my hotel. That meal at dencia's completely ruined my trip to Davao. I think the... More
