Where to eat Asian food in Manado: The Best Restaurants and Bars

November 11, 2019 Timmy Ribble

Reviews on Asian food in Manado, North Sulawesi, Indonesia. An epicenter of eco-tourism, Manado is a popular spot for scuba diving and snorkeling, especially at Bunaken National Park. Heat your vacation up with a trip to one (or all) of the nearby volcanoes, including Lokon Volcano and Klabat Volcano, then kick it up even further with a Manadonese meal. The people of Manado like their flavors action-packed with tons of spice.

Pondok Hijau Restaurant

Reviewed By ManadoJeremy

This food is typically not what I enjoy, therefore it is hard for me to review. However living here in Manado for 19 years does give me some ability to review. Go with a group , sit in one of the huts next to the gold fish ponds and relax enjoy- fish dishes are great.

RM Dabu-Dabu Lemong

Reviewed By Chrisneoh69

Based on reviews we took a gojek there. was raining so the place was half empty..but it has 3 HUGE dining rooms. Everything is just fish. we ordered a 650gm grouper and a 600gm skipjack. Garouper cooked local style with lime and lemongrass, skipjack grilled. Both were amazingly fresh. they serve rice, vegetables and rica ( local sambal) as a set and for some reason have us only 3 sets even though there was 4 of us. I had to hunt down a waiter, ask for another set , wait 10 more minutes after already waiting 40 minutes for food prep. Food was great, really really fresh fish done very well. but the service, as in other places we have eaten at Manado was very slow. I would go back again just for the fish. and cheap too. 2 fish, 4 sets office and vegetables, 4 drinks. S$30.

Tuna House

Reviewed By 847vaniad

Order Tuna Package + Ubi Kayu + Dragonfruit and Soursop Juice, and everything will be amazing. The grilled tuna is just plainly tasty and juicy. Enjoyed with the sambal and sauteed veggies, it's heaven. My 6 yo boy can finish 2 whole portions straight. Wow!!!The juice is also nice.One downside will be the excessive smoke that sticks to your clothes and hair.

Wisata Bahari Seafood Restaurant

Reviewed By Patric01

Wisata Bahari serves fresh seafood from the tanks, we tried ordering their fresh crab and lobsters besides a few other dishes. The crab saus padang and cheese lobsters were fresh and taste quite good. The lobsters are really expensive though. The veggies were nice but chicken was just average. The ambience was not good, conditions of the restaurant are not in their best shape. The layout is quite cramp outside and also not smell good. It’s also very noisy with chinese tourists and cheap karaoke system and singers. We were sitting outside but not much you can see during dinner time like this. Cleanliness is not too good, and you can also see some rats running around on the side of the restaurant.Services are slow and poor. Foods were served one after another so quite difficult to enjoy the complete dishes, even rice took quite some time to arrive. And it took very long for the waiters to attend to your request even the simple one. I believe this restaurant should have provided much better cleanliness, ambience and services considering the prices they charge.

Rumah Makan Nasi Kuning Saroja Manado

Reviewed By Laurentius C

Looking for breakfast in Manado and many suggestion to eat yellow rice Saroja. The place is small, little bit dark, no parking area. Fast serve, good portion and the yellow rice have unique taste. They combine chicken and fish meat, this make the taste become unique. The price more expensive than yellow rice at other similar place, maybe because they already so famous in town.

City Extra

Reviewed By batuhitam

City Extra is big seafood restaurant, just outside Manado, on the water. Sunset is amazing, I advise to get yourself a beer, looking at the ocean and Manado Tua and Bunaken Island and chill out. The seafood is super fresh, simply grilled or with some manadonese sauces. Strongly recommended the crab, very tasty, or a grilled grouper. Dip a bite in some fresh sambal or dabu-dabu iris if you like to get the right spicy kick!Cold beers (not always granted in Manado) and reasonable price. Friendly staff, even if sometimes not very well trained and slightly lazy.

This restaurant is a must visited place in Manado. It's not far from the hotel I've stay, so I decided to take my brother here. Fishes were cook well and so fresh. Price was reasonable and we ate and talked each other until the restaurant closed. It was a worth visit. Definitely would come back when I'm in Manado

Sate is average, could have been better if the mini grill where it is served with really keeps it warm. Gado gado here is excellent, but note that it's a huge serving. Mee goreng is also good. Nasi goreng is average. Grilled tuna on teriyaki sauce is also average.

Deep Sea Tuna House cafe & Resto

Reviewed By j0kiz

Fresh and delicious tuna at a reasonable price! This is the best food we tried in Manado and we visited twice! Try their 45k tuna set meal which comes with deliciously garlic kangkong and rice. You can try their local tuna bumbu, with its distinct taste, but we actually didnt like it. tuna 45k + kangkong + bintang is the best late night dinner at this place! warning - their sambal/chili is REALLY HOT! very friendly staff as well.
