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... More

The concept of the restaurant coincides with the concept of Jest Camp.We loved that the food was cooked in the Bamboo from the rice,sinigang,&sinampalokan.It tasted good and delicious👌🏻👌🏻👌🏻 The service is also good even if they had only one service crew she was very attentive. Must try the Sinampalokang manok&pakbet👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

We tried their sinigang na baboy and sinampalukang manok which were cooked in a bamboo stem or known as "kawayan". Of course their rice were also cooked inside a kawayan. Food: it was excellent! Real sampaloc was used in cooking the sinigang. Rice is also great! Place: not that much... Dont expect too much since this place's motif is more... More

Spent the weekend at Subic to celebrate and went to search for a place to have lunch. We came across Kawayan Kitchen's flyer at the hotel's reception and thought that it would be quite interesting to experience how this restaurant uses bamboo to cook food. Searched online for reviews and chanced upon this voucher valued at Php 500 for half... More

I'm a real foodie and trying their bamboo rice and sinampalukang manok, the bestsellers, for the first time is such a wonderful experience to my hungry tummy. The smell, the taste and the value is really worth the distant drive. Gonna come back sooooner. And kudos to their servers, polite and really attentive! Two thumbs up, Guys!!

Food tasted fresh. The presentation was nice, too. Orders arrived faster than expected even though there were a lot of customers that day. Try their inihaw na liempo, it's very good.

I've eaten a lot on our visit here. The rice is served fresh from the bamboo and the meals i love the sinampalukang manok also cooked in the bamboo. You can also ask them to see where they cook the food.
