Went here with friends for dinner and drinks. Slow service. Food didn't exactly give the "a-ha" moment or any sense if euphoria. Not worth it.

Kitchen is very slow to cook food and you will be waiting for a long time. Had my worst dining experience in this place.

This was one of most memorable dining experiences from my visit to the Philippines. The atmosphere is really hip and trendy. It gets very busy in the evenings, so a reservation is a must. Prices are just right for generous portions from the fusion menu - I remember having the steak and it was delicious. Wait staff very friendly as... More

I would have given them a five stars, but serving warm beer is unforgivable. The staff was great and attentive. The food is a better than you'd expect from such a place. It's clean and overall good, nothing to complain about except the warm beer. When I got my first beer, I thought it was a fluke - I complained,... More

This is my 2nd time to visit this Resto. First time was when they newly opened and they did not disappoint me. This time, my daughter from Australia wanted to have her favorite El Niño at Chilis but when we got there, no seats available so I had to think of the next place and so we proceeded to Torch... More

I went over to this place after passing by it a number of times to try it out. It was on a Sunday mid afternoon and the place was packed with families enjoying a Sunday luncheon. I ordered appetizers and beer and my main course. The appetizer was served about 20 minutes later, kinda long but I shrugged it off... More

My husband would like to order soup but it cost p199.95 so we scrap it. We ordered steak and salad instead...at... More

I had a nice dining experience at Torch. I love the sushis. Probably the best fusion sushi I ever had. Pizzas had a thin, crunchy crust. I prefer the shrimp than the philly cheese steak. Ambiance was great. Service was good but charges 10%. We spent P1000 per head, so be prepared to pay the price.

Been seeing this place for some time, got a chance to try it tonight. Disappointed would be an understatement. Don't get me wrong, the place is nice. Great crowd, satisfactory service. Great food presentation, unfortunately it stops there. We ordered a round of beers to start, they weren't cold and we had to send them back. We took a look... More
