Disappointing. Had a foreign guest and was embarrassed by how dirty (cockroaches on the wall) and the disgusting washing area which gives you a glimpse into the kitchen. Okay, so they've just opened after the lockdown but that's no excuse for a restaurant.

Finally good fish in Davao Place is rustic at best, but they know their craft. Good fish, huge portions and quick service. Recommend

For more than twenty years Ah Fat has been a popular Chines resto for Davaoenos and their guests from outside Davao. Parking is easy and there's no charge at all for parking. The resto has three outlets within the same complex but the most comfortable...one is the third outlet. The original outlet and the second one are smaller than the third one. The food is good and reasonably priced. We were five persons when we dined here and our bill amounted to PHP2009.00. We ordered pata tim, beef with broccoli, soup, noodles, chicken, vegetable and rice. We just ordered the small size for each dish but it was already good for us five, three females and two males.

Check your bill closely for billing errors that favor the restaurant. This is the second visit after got burned the first time. Food Not good and don’t know why people raced about this place. I think most do not know what’s good Chinese food. This...place is just slightly better than fast food Chow King but much more expensive.More

Sad we went to the original of the three in the same plaza and got cheated by this unethical operator. I am a Cantonese chef so to judge how well the steam fish is by order a live fish here. I ordered a live laupu-laupu...displayed in the fish tank. The marked up between a live fish and one that is frozen is 1,800 pesos. The steamed fish arrived from the kitchen was drenched in heavy soy sauce. This is a bad sign as a way to mask the taste of a unfresh fish common practice in unethical Chinese seafood restaurants. I knew it as I took the first bit; the flesh was rubbery boardering hard like biting into a balut. This fish has been previously preserved with baking soda. Closer exam confirmed this was a dead fish from frozen due to sunken eyes and no traces of blood on spine after gills being removed previously before it went to freezer. I had to call the tourist police from nearby Victoria Mall on AhFat because no one here was nonresponsive to my request for a price adjustment from cashiers to waiter saying this place has no manager/owners. The 30 something YO owner/manager arrived. This young man obviously never set foot working in the kitchen challenged me, and told the police that they have video from CCTV cam in the kitchen showing the live fish I picked went right into the steamer. But the proof never arrived. Until the tourist police threatening to arrest them, the young man authorized price adjustment to frozen fish price. It should not have to come to this point after making scene with a tourist police in your restaurant as manager. This place still trying to cheat you with frozen fish pricing until I showed them the correct price stipulated on the menu. The tourist police asked them why they did not update menu if price on frozen fish has increased. Ahfat had no anwers so the refunded the differences again. This type of behavior says it is okay to lie even infront of a local authority.More

We ordered 3 dishes and could not finish them all, so we brought home the left overs. The portions are quite big. We had a nice time. The waiter (seasoned) gave us good suggestions. Place does not have ambience though. This is a good place...to eat for seafood. Big groups will get the best for the money.More

This restaurant used to serve good food. On our last visit, since we have our food to go, food was average and have a queer taste. I am not sure if food taste bad because of their packaging or something else. Our place is just...10 minutes drive away. Anyway, check your food before leaving the place if it's a take out order.More

This restaurant offers Chinese food for dine in or take away. Mid-range prices either good for 2-3 or a bigger group depending on the price. Use to taste better a few years back. has since been commercialized and some of the food quality has been...sacrificed.More
