    Ka Lui: A superb dining experience indeed!

    by Gunggoneer Written Apr 26, 2009

    Great local ambience coupled with good tasting food is what Ka Lui is famed for. A by-word by local tourist guides, this place really lives by the reputation it has.

    Note: Prior reservation is required, notify your accomodation of your dining plans for them to arrange the reservations for you. Also, you will be requested to take off all sorts of footware, this entails a barefoot dining experience, so avoid wearing intricate shoes or sandals with many straps or strings.

    Favorite Dish: Seafood Sisig

    Haim Chicken Inato: The most delicious chicken in the Philippines

    by rmcuesta Written Feb 12, 2009

    Wow, i cant describe how delicious chicken here is, spicy & sweet taste with a unique sauce that when combined together makes it even more delicious. A must in Palawan. Dining here is done on a barehand or kamayan. You may request for spoon and fork though.

    There are many chicken restaurants in Puerto Princesa, but i tell u they are just trying to imitate the original chicken inato of this restaurant.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken Inato.

    Royal Oberoi: Death by Pistahan sa Oberoi and Pork Sisig...

    by lesleenatividad Updated Nov 11, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Their food is to die for... I swear.

    Our family tried Ka Lui and Badjao Seafront. I think they are overrated. I agree that they have very nice ambiance but their food tastes the usual.

    Try Oberoi... it's a little bit far from the center (bayan) but it is definitely worth the trip. Come at night. I think the ambiance will be a little better. But what the heck... the food will speak for itself...

    Favorite Dish: Pistahan sa Oberoi

    Lou Chaolong Hauz: Vietnamese Noodles

    by rmcuesta Written Sep 9, 2008

    In Manila to eat a Vietnamese food will cost you much, but here in Puerto Princesa, will only cost you less and more genuine cooking, due to vietnamese refugees here who shared their food delicacies in Palawan.

    Favorite Dish: noodles and long bread with pork.

    Badjao Seafront Restaurant: Dining amidst the Mangrove trees

    by anliz99 Updated Jan 23, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best thing about the place is its location. It's in the middle of a mangrove forest and you can see one that's really old. The view is great and will be spectacular if you go there during sunset.

    But the food is pricey and not as good as KaLui's.

    [Update: Had dinner here again in my last trip because it's a Sunday and Ka Lui is closed. Their menu seemed to have improved. They actually have a set menu for 4 that is quite good and value is ok. Its P850 and good for 4 persons. You have soup, fish, meat, veggies and dessert. ]

    Ka Lui Reastaurant: Sea Foods!!! Sea Foods!!! Sea Foods!!!

    by crimson722 Written Dec 19, 2007

    All of their meals are good but the best for me is the complete platter meal (good for 2). With vegetable, fish lumpia, prawns, and grilled tuna. With free dessert (assorted fruits)
    Very affordable. It just cost us around P600 for two persons

    Favorite Dish: I like the buttered garlic prawns.

    BALINSASAYAW: Most Affordable with Delicious Dishes

    by Prettyfuljan Written Nov 15, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You may get here what you can get from Kalui's for half the price. There are two branches in Puerto Princesa. Just tell the tricycle driver to take you where it is nearest to your place. Ambiance here is nice, too.. Very relaxing..

    Favorite Dish: I love the Tuna Kinilaw. Unlike other restaurants, the sourness of the dish is just right. Also, the dish is very affordable.

    It's a family owned biz, so to say that they do the cooking and serving. All that's in the menu list... are mouthwatering!

    Favorite Dish: Must try the Lengua (Ox Tongue), it's so creamy and yummy and also the squid or shrimp (can barely remember) in szechwan sauce! Smoothies to refresh!

    Kalui: Great Place!

    by flipinsf1 Written Sep 28, 2007

    They serve a variety of food but they're widely-known for their seafood. The place is very nice, clean (you have to take your shoes off before going in) and inexpensive. Spent $15 for their set menu of seafood for two and we couldn't even finish it all! Reservations for dinner are a must as this place is very popular with the locals, too. Ask the desk person at your hotel/inn to call and make the reservation for you. The wait can be long if you don't have reservations, specially for a big group. They have a small garden where you can smoke but the restaurant itself is non-smoking. They encourage you to eat with your hands, too!

    They have an extensive wine list but when I asked for two of the wines from the list, they were out of them. Otherwise, it was a great meal!

    Favorite Dish: Any of the seafood!

  • Kahlui: Seafoods Galore

    by allanroy Written Sep 28, 2007

    Food tastes great! Nice native ambiance. Price is relatively cheap. We only spent like P300 each for a full meal.

    Just be sure that you get your reservations ahead of time coz it's always full packed! You can ask your hotel to do that for you.

    Favorite Dish: Seafood platter - a little taste of everything

    BADJAO SEAFRONT: Surrounded by Mangroves

    by shngal12 Updated May 16, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The ambience is perfect and the best time to dine here is lunchtime. Worry free of mosquito bites during this time. Price is very reasonable and affordable! You get to enjoy the scenery and it's not hot because it is surrounded by mangroves.

    Favorite Dish: Try their SEAFOOD PLATTER and they also have set meals.
