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 style Sukiyaki platter based on prawns, was heavy and greasy. Way too much oil. The... More

Traveling to Palau, Carp Restaurant is one of the local joint you must visit. The beef short ribs with pickled garlic just hits the spot. Local clam onomiyaki is my favorite dish, my kids never fail to order the fried shrimp with kangkum leaves. I grew up eating in this restaurant with my grandparents and parents now i bring my...

We were so lucky we found this place at the first day of our sray, so we kept going here every single day. Yes, we tried different places, but it was nothing comparing to Carp. Delicious local and japanese food. Especially yellow fins sashimi, shrimp tempura, choped beef and so on. Portions are huge, so we shared and taste. Very... More

This place is great! It's down the road from Sam's Tours, Palau Royal Resort, The Cove, and Comfort Suites. There is a sign just to the right of the Palau Royal Resort entrance. Follow the sign down the street, keep left, and it's the building tucked away next to the dive shop. The menu includes both Japanese and Palau local... More

Place is hard to find, lucky our driver knew exactly where it is. Generous serving, so order less than what you normally would. Average quality.

Ate here twice. I had the Goyza Japanese dumplings, Papaya salad and the Mangrove Crab. The servings are all very large and you can definitely share, even the Papaya salad. If you want local food this is place to go. I think the prices are reasonable for the size of the portions. I was hoping to try the Coconut crab... More

This restaurant is a like a hole in the wall, just a stone's throw away from Palau Royal Resort. Had dinner there with my fiance, food was average with Japanese and Palauan influences. But had to wait for 15 minutes for our food order to be taken. 50 seats and always full. Overall, it's a mediocre restaurant...

The restaurant is located between the ferry terminal and the Palau royal resort, and at night the road there is a bit dark. It's not on the way to anywhere - you have to get there on purpose. Ask around or take a taxi to get there. The place has a Japanese-esque feel to it, but it certainly is more... More

This place is a hidden gem, not something you wills tumble across while walking around in Palau. Ask a local about it!
