Though we took long hours in waiting for a vacant tables, the staff was apologetic and did what they can do. May be also at that time it was a peak of having a large number of guests.

We enjoyed the food as it was the first time we experience eating food cooked in kawayan. I specially like the rice as I never expected it will be that good given that it was cooked that way.

Very affordable as we spent less than Php1800 for 8 people.

My partner and i went to Subic two weeks ago for a summer vacay and we thought of eating here Before going back to manila and we were glad we did. The staff were nice and friendly and the food were served in a timely manner. we particularly loved sinigang na hipon which was actually cooked inside the kawayan, pancit and liempo. We were in awe as to how theyre able to cook rice and sinigang using bamboo. Simply amazing! The taste was also good and the serving was generous enough. Price was reasonable. We would certainly go back! You should try it out with your friends and loved ones!

if you are looking for "not so exotic" but a "native" feel then this is a good place to go.
for starters kawayan kitchen is just a stone's throw away from treetop adventure and jest camp. service is about 3 out of 5 but the food is above average

This place is a good place for family bonding and retreats. The food they serve is good, I'm for the first timers that they will come back after they've tried eating at this food place

There were a lot of people in this simple
Canteen style place the Saturday we went there, arrive around 1:30pm and were told they stopped orders and will resume accepting orders after an hour, so we waited until 2:30pm to have them get our orders and waited until 3pm to eat. By the time we ate, they were sold out on the rice cooked inside bamboo. We stayed because we were waiting for our kid who was inside with his class on a field trip playing their hunger games package, otherwise of course we would have eaten someplace else. The staff there were very polite but yeah too many people on a weekend full of field trip groups. My suggestion is come on a weekday, weekends will test your patience or eat early on a weekend. Food was sufficiently good, the pork sinigang was better than the sinampalukang manok, we also ordered grilled liempo, which was so-so and portion was too small for the price really. Stick to the food cooked inside kawayan.
