We shared the spring roll (with pork, jalapeno and cheese) and the noodles with seafood (for 2, on the sharing part of the menu). Both were really... read more

Was unsure about seeing 'singing waiters' (after finding it on trip advisor) but went along anyway. It was excellent from start to finish. What I hand't anticipated is the humour and showmanship. I could go into detail about the evening, but won't spoil the surprise. Go in with the right attitude and you'll be laughing from start to finish. Great... More

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon The Singing Cooks and Waiters by chance. It just happened to be the restaurant nearest to where we were at the time. What a little gem. The staff are warm, friendly and bubbly. They all had great voices and were very enthusiastic. Especially the security guard (I'm not sure if he was actually security... More

We were looking for some special restaurant to give our guests a memorable experience. Somebody suggested The Singing Cooks & Waiters restaurant which exact location we didn't know; now we know. Experience was something what you cannot write down and only read on paper, you have to see and hear it. The show was excellent and the food very good.... More

This restaurant stands to be one of the most fun places I have ever been in Manila. Although the food is on the side of above average to excellent, the entertainment level is far above and beyond the normal standard. Highly recommended.

I was there in last October, I found that all the staff not only provided me good services but also surprise. They all have a good voice. It not only provided good local food with reasonable price but also provided good singing perfomance by their staff for the whole night and made me and my friends got an unforgottable night....

The food here was amazing and the prices were so affordable. While we were excited to be serenade for dinner, we did not anticipate that the staff sings throughout your entire stay. I would have preferred sets with breaks to allow for dinner conversation instead of feeling like you had to keep it down so others could enjoy the performances.

Imagine Benihana's with cheesy filipino humor and soning with smiles, decent fil food and all round fun spirit and thats this joint! Reserve ahead for a center table UPSTAIRS. Not cheap but well worth it once in a while!

Foods are great and for those who love to listen to music, this is the place. However, if you are after fine dining, casual and serene, this is not the place. Staffs sing great but sometimes it is too loud as you cannot hear your companion while dining.
