Named after their grandmother, the owners decided to bring Thai cuisine to the families in Pampanga.
Although Cisan’s was initially a Thai restaurant, they eventually served other Asian dishes made with a Kapampangan flair. The combination of flavors and styles, along with their affordable prices, makes the restaurant a go-to place for families.

One of Cisan’s dishes, Tom Yang Goong (Php 215 w/o noodles or Php 245 w/ noodles) is a hot prawn, soup-based dish that speaks volumes about how they crafted Thai dishes with the Filipino taste. The spicy and sour prawn dish is very similar to another Filipino dish.

Their Bagoong Rice with Grilled Pork (Php 275) is just salty enough to work well with the Chicken Satay (Php 245) dipped with peanut sauce, which has both sweet and sour notes.
