Late lunch with the family on our way back to Manila from Quezon province. Saw a post of this of my friend on her IG and thought she was out of the country hahaha

Anyway, here is what I thought of the place.

Parking - spacious naman kaya lang dami di sya sementado. So be careful na lang sa mga naka heels 128513

Entrance - you may want to take a selfie right away as there are a lot of statues. Also, since it was Sunday yesterday, que was quite long. Have to wait for 15-20 mins before you can have your seat.

Price - a bit expensive. Good for group of people para mas masaya mas madaming ka share.

Ambiance - feeling mo sa Thailand ka. Daming pwedeng magpa pic. Too bad, umuulan kahapon so sa entrance lang kami nakapagpa pic

Food that we ordered - inihaw na tilapia half, sisig boat, lumpiang ubod, 2 small caldero of rice. Not bad for P1,300 pesos kase may discount si Mother sa Senior. 128522

It was a great experience but would probably recommend if you will come here with a balikbayan relatives who is craving for Pinoy food. Or group of friends. There are also some activities which you can enjoy while waiting for your orders. 128522

Went here for dinner last Saturday after our hikes to Hulugan and Aliw falls. My friend is from Laguna, so she knows this place. But for us who don't, we really got attracted to it, since there are a lot of HUUUGE statues outside.

The place itself, like its numerous statues, is huge! I felt like I was gonna get lost in the place! Seats are and will never be a problem.

There were also a lot of activities in this restaurant, but some of it were closed when we visited. There was also a band, and mascots. It's like a fiesta in here.

We got to try one activity: plate throwing. There's this area where you can pay to throw stuff at the wall. Perfect way to get your frustrations out of your system. Prices range from P18 (medium plate) to P2,000 (Old TV).

We asked to be seated in a floating kubo. Well, not really "floating" per se since the kubo is stable, but there's water underneath. The floors of walkways were made of bamboo (kawayan).

We ordered the boodle fight good for 4 people, but it seemed like it was good for 6 people. The meal had rice, bangus, liempo, chicken, eggplant, soup and fresh lumpia. The food was just okay, nothing special, but satisfying. My favorite was the tender liempo.

Service was good. The food came fast! It was served around 10 minutes after ordering. We didn't even get to finish our photo sessions. Hahaha!

Overall, the experience was unforgettable. I think I'd go there again for the experience itself, the food is just a bonus (good thing it isn't bad!)

I was so disappointed. Very disappointed!

Pinilit ko pa kumain dito yung family ko kahit malayo at mahal ang pagkain dahil natuwa ako nung unang punta ko dito.

That was 3rd day of april 2016.

8am from manila to laguna to attend burial of my uncle.

3pm we went to this restaurant. Tired. Very hungry. Since d pa kami ng breakfast lunch so eto ung pinakakain namin sa nung araw na un.

Place was not full. Plenty of staff.

* place is not advisable for senior citizen na mahirap na maglakad. Kawayan kasi ung lalakaran sobrang nahirapan lola ko e. Nalula sya.

Maganda ung place. Great for selfies. Many attraction kaya hindi namin napansin ung bagal ng service.

But it was tooo much!

We ask for water, 30 minutes to 1hr.

Table is not yet clean when we arrived.

We ordered 1 party bilao. ( sorry i forgot the menu ), 4 rice 1 bulalo.

4:45 food arrived. (3:30pm kami dumating dun)


Staff? Lakad kwento lakad kwento.....

Manager? Mr JEREMY GABITO, kaupo lang kwento din.

So ayun i made a scene. Sorry sa sarili ko pero galit tlga ko dahil almost 2hrs n kami nagaantay. Realtalk? Nanginginig ako nun sa gutom bukod sa galit. Nasigawan ko tlga sila.

2mins set up n daw lahat. Wala padin so umalis na lang kami.

Manager offered to eat for free ( complimentary )

Sir? Hindi po lahat ng nagccomplain naghhangad ng libre. I also write reviews pero wala naman din kapalit un. Magandang service lang po sana since nagbabayad din naman kami at ngbyahe pa kami. Thanks for the offer by the way.

Nakakagalit lang dahil ung apologies and explanation nya ay sablay.

* on our side : 9 tables. 3 staff
2 tables are occupied that time.
2 staff on break
1 staff left right? So ano mahirap dun kung dalawang table lang ang occupied at madami iba staff wala ginagawa?

* kasabay lang namin dumating un mas marami silang order. Nauna pa cla taposna sila kumain nghhugas na sila ng kamay kami wala parin food? 128563

Sorry pero nakakapanginit lang talaga. 128557

We went here yesterday, I was with my family and some of our relatives from the States. My Tita recommend this place because according to her, their food is good and it had a park, so they thought that my younger siblings would enjoy it; well for me, I didn't enjoy the place.

We travelled for about 2 hours from Batangas and the road going there was medyo sketchy. However, it was really easy to find the place kasi there was a big signboard and you'd notice that they have a really big space for parking. So we entered and noticed that there were a lot of people. We were third in line and I swear, the music annoyed me. Huhuhu. For me kasi I expected it to be a chill place na tahimik kasi nga it's like in the middle of nowhere pero no. The music really bothered me. Anyway, going back. The place was fine. You'd be amused by the big statues pero di masyado namaintain yung cleanliness ng place. It would be better if they repainted some parts of the place and cleaned the parang river thing they have. Hahahaha

Food. So sa food naman medyo annoying kasi ang layo ng tinravel namin and we were all hungry tapos biglang when we were about to order na they gave us the menu and a small paper which listed their available food. Sobrang onti lang niya, and lahat sila pusit, bangus & tilapia lang kasi according to them, naubos daw yung food kahapon (Christmas) and di daw nakapagdeliver yung supplier nila. Imagine, they didn't even have garlic. Medyo cute yung serving nila tho. Rice was served in small calderos and the food tasted fine, nothing special. Medyo overpriced din. Pero I really recommend their Sinigang na Bangus, it was my favorite among all the other food that we ordered. 128522

Staff were accommodating & kind din. Btw, there's a free boatride, just give the bangkeros a tip! 128513

One good place to eat after visiting Pagsanjan Falls in Laguna.
We had our dinner here and celebrated my mother's birthday.

the place is nice, except from those areas that's not well maintained were some statues are placed on the side.
it is actually pretty big, and as a habit i went around took photos of everything that's interesting for me. there are so many parts that's picture perfect, maybe it is because of the so many statues around. there's Tacsiyapo also, where you could throw plates, mugs, even televisions to release your anger(it's a better way to release stress than to punch someone in their face).

the place is full of lively staffs which is a very very good plus factor for me. there are singers that roam around the restaurant to serenade their customers.
also we are lucky enough that there's a show on a Saturday night where their best singers(staff) and some circus acts performed on their stage.

now, let's go to their food.
we ordered the Boodle Fight: Round 2 which has sinigang, liempo, lumpiang bukid, tacsiyapong gulay, tilapia and their famous lechon tinupig. lechon tinupig is a chicken cooked on coconut milk and then grilled. I'm actually expecting something special from the taste of the chicken since it was their best seller, but my tastebuds couldn't remember any distinct taste from it, though the chicken's texture is good.
for the price it is very affordable, fair enough for the quality of food that they serve.

will i go back again?
yes, because of their good service. 128077🏼

The experience was FUN but OVERPRICED!

I, along with my officemates, had our boodle lunch here one time and we were all giddy having to try this experience. I mean who wouldn't? Eating on banana leaves with your bare hands while inside a hut situated on a floating restaurant - must be good. Plus, the place is just photogenic capturing that asian vibe by incorporating bamboos and the humongous pieces of buddhas and other asian art pieces.

Then comes the bill and the whole floating resto thing almost sank with the instaneous dropping of jaws. Kidding! haha. But really, considering both quantity and quality, it was just over the top pricey. We payed for it anyway:)

We just skirted the whole place and enjoyed the activities. They have circus performers, some traditional pinoy games, challenges and ofcourse my favorite - tacsiyapo!!! Now try guessing which specific writing I hit with that breakable mug on hand;)

My family always gather here. It has a nice place, good for picture takings because it has a scenery of Imma say, Thailand? And maaaliw mga bata sa mga giant cartoon character statues. But the food is so expensive and not delicious. If its not bland, its too salty. Basta, I'm not satisfied with their food.

Kapag fullpacked yung place, napansin ko, bumabagal service nila. One time, it took almost an hour before samin nai-serve yung food. So, aakalain mo bagong luto siguro kaya matagal. Pero hindi, parang ininit lang nila ng konti.

Kaya lang siguro kame nabalik dito kasi gawa nung mga bata, naaaliw sila sa place and it has a huge dining area kasi kaya swak sa big family namin. Minsan gusto ko nga sabihin sa management na dapat siguro sila magpalit ng cook. But I think its rude. Hahaha so I haven't do it pa.

We went to this place during the lunch hour rush so I guess we got what we deserve... Which was horrible service. The staff were all nice and courteous. If what you wanted was within reach, they'd easily give it to you. The awful part was that there were just so many customers so they weren't able to pay attention to all of us. They were busy running orders. During the heavy lunch and dinner hours, I can say that the place becomes understaffed.

We ordered the liempo and chicken tinupig where the former was what I loved. Pancit de lechon, hilabos na hipon, and two orders of rice (the one good for 2-3 people) were the rest of our orders. The food was good but nothing to die for. I found the food to be pretty expensive though!! Each serving is good for about 3-4 people but man, the price is really something!! The cheapest appetizing meaty viand that I saw was around 350+ and the usuals being 500+. Not worth it, imho.

We waited for more than an hour for our food which was honestly quite bad service. Can management do something about this? I don't think this is a major staff problem. Good thing I had a book with me to pass the time. We arrived at 12 and left at 3. I honestly don't get why there so many people here.

I loved the tacsiyapo wall though. I let off some steam. I honestly wouldn't come back here if I came with people but if I had just one patient person then I would. Service, please improve!

I visited twice and during both times, I was not impressed. The food was so-so and very expensive for the amount and quality. I think we pay for the over-the-top extravaganza of the place, which is not my cup of tea to be honest.

If you want good Filipino food, don't go here.

Expensive food, it's more like you're paying for the performers than the food.

Service is bad, probably because of the large place.

No credit card.

Food is okay but really it's not worth it. There are far more delicious food with cheaper price.

Good Food. Good Place. Good Vibes

We went to Isdaan last July 25th, it's an easy ride coming from Manila this place will caught your attention because of it's huge statue in front, it's cool.

We are group of 18 persons, good thing we spoke to one of the staff day before going there, even ask him if dog is allowed good thing it is. We've got this table inch away from stage where the acrobats,magician etc. performs.

I even tried to catch fish and gladly we caught three "hito" that they cooked for us! They fried it, i'm not sure if they can cook it other way but i preferred fry.

Can't remember all of what we ordered, i like the kare-kare and the sisig served in this tiny boat and the pork dish served in a bamboo it's a bit pricey specially the rice, but considering the ambiance and the fun it will give i think it's worth it!

I love going to this place especially when i have vistors from Manila or balikbayan friends. I know i can never go wrong when i bring them here. Food is good. I always order bulalo and crispy pata for my friends. I so love their pusit na sugbo cooked in a bamboo and wrapped in banana leaf. Place is a bit far as it is located in Calauan Lagina, but trip is definitely worth it as you can go visit other places as well and buy your favorite pasalubong.

Fresh food, entertaining and very Filipino-ish. This place is for barkadas who love to eat tons of Filipino dish. Has a tropical type of design and there is a circus people inside, magicians, and a booth where in you can release your stress or anger by throwing things like plates, mugs, and even televisions.
We went there with my eldest brother, his wife and his wife's father. We ordered inihaw na tilapia, kare-kare, sinigang na hipon, and sabaw ng nilagang baka.
The food were so fresh because they cook it in front of you outside the mini kubo.
It was a wonderful experience having a road trip with the people you love.

Place is like your in a different country, Large buddha's, King Kong, A floating Restaurant. We call it little Indonesia, right after we get off the car big structures were in front of our eyes, waiting for our seat took awhile because we arrived at dinner time. Food also was about 30min. To arrive it's a good thing because of the ambiance we get to take pictures. In a nutshell I enjoyed the place over Food.

Food & roadtrip again!128525

I saw this place from my college friend, when i saw it i was like i need to go here. They have gigantic cartoon characters and buddhas ang cool 128586128514
And ung tacsiyapo!!128162128162
I don't know what the word means 1285849996
but what you'll do is you'll throw things at the wall and yell tacsiyapo to release your anger.
There are words written on the wall that you can target as well.

when we came here we got seated immediately. Pero the waiting game for the food is hmmm 128557
we ordered mango shakes, ginataang tilapia, grilled squid and of course bawal mawala ang ensaladang mangga 128514

the food tastes okay, huge servings 128076 but it's a bit pricey. I guess may charge ung ambiance kasama sa food ung nagastos sa design ng place 128514128584
Well it's worth it naman, the place is really nice. para kang nasa ibang bansa lalo na sa buddha part 128522

They also have this mini boat ride you just need to give a tip to manong then he'll give you a quick tour don't expect too much but i enjoyed it 128522 baka mababaw lang talaga kaligayahan ko128553128514

And btw for the tacsiyapo wall price starts at 30 pesos for the plates and mugs 128522
