4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed yesterday NEW

although they have a new interior the food tastes the same , it reminded me of my youth. GULAMI is still highly recommended so is this sate chami and avocado shake. looking forward to my next Davao visit. if there is any downside the servers are quite slow but that wont stop me from going back

Another mainstay restaurant of mine when I visit Davao. I was amazed after my 2 year haitus to see a very different place, I was expecting to see a typical Chinese eatery consisting of circular table and metal chairs, not anymore. The new intrior has been modernized, keeping up with the times. Ummm, I can't say I'm jumping for joy,... More

Typical philippino restaurant where the food comes out a bit at a time. This is one influence the Chinese owner has had to concede which is a pity. The sizzling steak came with mild chili pepper instead of bell pepper as the menu suggested. No big deal. Overall the food was tasty but not enough for for me to return... More

When I want pansit lomi and siopao, I head for the New Davao Famous Restaurant. I am sure they have other items in their menu but since time immemorial they are famous for their Lomi! Come and visit!

Chinese food. Pork bolabola siopao is the best here. The only restaurant in davao city that has an excellent gulami. And the lomi is one of a kind, nobody can beat their lomi here in davao. I always or we always order takeout here. Very authentic, very original and very good. Just very hard to park here... Especially on weekdays...

This is a very old restaurant in Uyanguren/ R. Magsaysay St. but the owner had done some renovations. Though there were negative feedback on this place before, we still love coming because food is good anyway and brings a lot of memories. We love their satemi paired with their bola bola siopao and we're full. Staff not that great though... More
