If i have to say something good about this place, it would be the location within Laguna area. There wasn't anything bad about Tawai. The staff was fairly friendly. The food was fairly good. And price was slightly on the high side. And like most restaurant in the area, they provide transportation to hotels in the Laguna area.

with super food and service. We enjoyed a relaxed lunch. Best review for the noodle soup, really delicate and full of flavour, not the easiest of combinations.

Noi was a lovely host and very accommodating to my 3 kids choice of what they wanted to cook. A fun and interesting morning for us and delicious food. Noi even helped us to take away the food we'd made but were too full to finish at the class. Highly recommend Tawai for those staying in the Laguna.

Delicious fresh affordable food, clean with a lively bar next door. If you do not want to go out take advantage the home delivery service or pick up a take away.
