Dr. Lorenzo Ku and his wife, Madam Anita Ku Loves eating, their passion for Food is always in high level and in going to different countries, they usually tried so many food menus. From there, the family thought of putting up their own restaurant not only to gain profit but to extend help to Lipeños to have a job. It started with a small restaurant named Hangchow Garden Restaurant in 2004 with 80 to 100 seating Capacity. As time goes by, the restaurant became popular because of the Asian Fusion menus being served. There began reservations of 50 persons that gone up to 80 up to 100 persons and more.

Where we Started

Last December 14, fresh off our adventure at Sto. Tomas, Batangas for the Ala Eh! Festival 2015, we were invited to to attend the Opening of Lorenzo’s Place inside the compound of Fiesta Mall, Lipa City. We were told that the old Hang Chow restaurant was upgraded to this new one, on a new and bigger location.

From the outside, the restaurant looks part of a big warehouse to the right of the main mall (which it is) and although this is the grand opening, improvements are still ongoing. However, come inside and you’ll be transported to a great restaurant with a cool and modern ambiance. It’s a pretty big restaurant with segregated meeting rooms, a brand new dance floor, and a stage with a huge LED Screen! The first and lasting impression that we got was that it was spacious and elegant, perfect for parties and life events with a guest count of 300 pax.
