Luz Kinilaw is an establishment in Davao. It is located in one of Davao's poorest neighborhood - slams, if not the poorest. It should be taken with that connotation in mind. The area may not be the safest after sunset. It serves grilled tuna belly,...More

Simple place, but the food is tasty, especially the grilled tuna tail and panga. Chicken and squid were nothing special. The highlight was being able to order durian from the street still outside, and having it freshly sliced, and served at our table. Yummm!

Menu is all grilled tuna and chicken plus their staple Kinilaw. Place is not very tidy but food is great. We spent 500 for grilled tuna, tuna kinilaw, rice and drinks.

Upon entering, order first your viand. Try the tuna panga and buntot. Also add a squid for a delightful meal. Ask for a free soup. It warms your belly.

Luz Kinilaw is one known local resto in the City. The taste is good compared to other restaurants serving the same dishes. They have renovated the restaurant after the fire incident. They also serve fresh Durian and beer.
