Carp Restaurant serves great Palauan and Japanese foods with great hospitality. Foods are served in big portions, so is the iced tea. Iced tea is free flow as well. The Japanese owner is always around, and greets to all guests. Carp Restaurant is hidden at...More

Like Palau, Carp is very unassuming, and like a treasured chest it needs to be opened and experiences fully before passing judgment. Mama San the owner is a child of the world war from Japanese parents, she is Palauan and has mastered mixing of Japanese...More

Everytime we visit this place we feel like we're home. We love their beef and tofu. Except of the oiliness. When you order you can ask them to put little oil.

At first glance Carp doesn't seem to be much of a restaurant but the it is clean, the service is attentive and the food is good. The portions are huge so best to order less than you might think and make sure to share.

Went here after a week off shore on a live-aboard boat for a group dinner. We had high expectations of the place based on reputation and recommendations. And a fellow diver wanted to check out the bat soup (not my taste). My choice, a Japanese...More
