NAIA 3: List of Restaurants for Passengers & NON-PASSENGERS (Landside)

Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) is the Philippines’ primary gateway. It chiefly serves the Greater Manila area, a usual layover destination, and nearby provinces in Luzon. The airport has four terminals — NAIA Terminal 1, 2, 3, and 4. Terminal 3 is the newest and the largest.

Officially inaugurated in July 2014, Terminal 3 was part of the expansion plan to increase NAIA’s capacity to accommodate the burgeoning volume of passengers. Currently, it serves international flights, but it still welcomes several of Cebu Pacific’s domestic routes. The final plan gears toward appointing Terminals 1 and 3 to facilitate international flights and Terminals 2 and 4 to handle domestic flights.

Today, NAIA Terminal 3 features various restaurants and shops that even non-passengers can access! Yes, you read it right. This article will help you navigate your way through NAIA Terminal 3 restaurants & dining options. Here’s the list of food and dining options in NAIA Terminal 3 Landside. Again, these establishments are accessible to both passengers and NON-PASSENGERS.

Important Terms and Reminders

But before we proceed to the list, here are some helpful reminders and definitions of terms.

  • Passenger vs Non-Passenger. This one is already obvious. Passengers refer to those with confirmed flight tickets and travel documents for check-in, immigration, and security checks. Non-passengers are those who are accompanying and sending off their passenger companions, family members, loved ones, or colleagues.
  • Landside vs Airside. Landside refers to the public area or zone BEFORE Immigration Section and Outbound Security Check. Airside pertains to the restricted passenger-only area or zone AFTER passing through the Immigration Section and Outbound Security Check.
  • The Departure Hall’s check-in lobby (Level 3) where airline counters are located is strictly guarded and gated. The zones allowed for the general public to access are anywhere outside the restricted check-in lobby.
  • The Arrival Hall on Level 1 is open to non-passengers. The general public can roam and wait anywhere outside the Custom Section barrier.
  • Entrance to the Public Landside Zone. Non-passengers can enter the public Landside area from Terminal 3’s multi-level parking or through the Manila Runway footbridge connecting NAIA 3 to Newport City. The Multi-level parking can be accessed from either the Arrivals access road or the Departures upper access road. Just follow the road sign leading to the terminal building. From Newport City, the Manila Runway leads to Level 4 of the terminal.
