I'm biased because Dencia's has such good memories for me. I grew up in Davao and when the family would eat out after Sunday mass, we almost invariably ended up eating here. This is old-style Chinese panciteria (noodle house) at its best. The food is served family-style so order a lot. I recommend any of the fried rice, the lumpiang... More

We come here for the congee and tokwa't baboy. They're classics! The recipe has stayed the same throughout the years. Hope it stays that way.

The old Dencia's appear to be completely gone. Service is awful, and food will make you sick. At least 6 of us in just one evening from two different groups suffered from gastrointestinal sickness. I personally threw up a few hours upon getting back to my hotel. That meal at dencia's completely ruined my trip to Davao. I think the... More

We ordered only a few things but I could say the food was good. The place was a bit packed when we came since it was lunchtime but the waiter was able to attend to us immediately. Waiting time for the food was also good around 10-15 mins. The people from the resto were also kind and attentive.

Come here for breakfast, nothing feels like being local. all food served freshly cooked, coffee freshly brewed. It's not a fancy restaurant so it's a must!

They're famous for their very delicious Tokwa't Baboy & Goto but their Fried Lumpia should also get as much credit! Enjoyed our dinner even if we were already full before going in to get their staple dishes.
