My friend and I loved this little vegetarian restaurant. Food is great, but it will take a bit of time to prepare and my friend and I did not get served the food at the same time. The staff is very friendly. It was a bit hot inside in the afternoon.

After eating all of the different meats that philippeans had to offer it was really refreshing to eat something green. The place is rather small with nice looking interiors. We ate bean burrito and teriyaki tofu for the mains and halo-halo for the dissert. Mains were really tasty and filled you up. The halo-halo was REALLY good!! However, it was... More

If you've got time to burn and are keen for some vego grub, come here! They've got a considerable menu - all of it vegetarian. I typically order the burrito. Expect to exercise lots of patience because this place is slow-paced. If you're in town on vacation, remember to chill out and relax. You're meal will arrive... eventually and it... More

Before today I atempted to eat there already twice but the place was closed, despite the fact that I came in the regular working hours. Unfortunately I regret going there. With one drink I spent there 500 pesso and left the restaurant hungry which for me... More

Their food taste ok but the service sucks. We arrived at around 8:20 pm but the waitress seemed agitated in entertaining us. I asked if they have wifi but she replied "meron pero baka papatayin narin yan kasi magkoclose na" i insisted because i know they are open until 9. I didn't mind her. She took our orders impolitely .... More

Really delicious food-my friend is a vegetarian so it was great for her to have so much choice! I am not but the food was divine. Particularly the aubergine cheese rolls and the vegetable curry. Great place! The only thing missing was a beer or a cocktail-they don't serve any alcoholic drinks.

Ima's is a simple, but clean and true vegetarian anchor in meat-happy Philippines! The menu is varied and dishes are simple, but hearty and delicious. The setting matches perfectly, on a side-street away from the main chaos of Puerto Princessa, this place is worth seeking out, particularly if you're fed up with not finding a trustworthy, true veg. restaurant in...
