Filipino food is simple honest food. It’s a natural fusion of many different cultures all served over rice. Come discover the diverse flavours and explore different food combinations.
We confused Lamesa Kitchen with another Lamesa Filipino restaurant we visited in 2017 (at another location that I thought had moved). Lamesa Kitchen was more casual than that other restaurant, however the food was very good and a great variety of flavours that my guests enjoyed. We were all happy with the dining experience.
My wife had been to Lamesa before with family and had raved about it. I had never been so this was my first time. We had 4 sharing plates and each one was exceptional. We also had the Ube desserts. I would highly recommend this place and I can't wait to come back again. Good Value
Great value. Delish food. Fantastic service.
The food was good. It can get quite busy on a weekend. Reservation is a must. Price was a little bit on the higher side. There is Green P parking next to the restaurant.
Amazing Filipino food and super friendly service!
The staff were extremely friendly. We went for the Sunday Kamayan dinner and it was excellent. The portions are huge and the service was top rate.
Sorry, the food came in small quantities. And the quality were not what we expected, the kare kare was too dry, the fried chicken were salty and stale. etc.
