The food is good enough that you would go there for a meal – but that is not the main attraction at this restaurant. The name of the place is only a hint. To be honest, I was doubtful about going there, but my host had made the point that we were going, so I said nothing. We were the... More

Recommended by a family friend who lives in Manila, we gave this place a try late one evening. We were immediately pleased with the staff, all of whom were very friendly. The main dining area is overly lit, but has decent acoustics. Ken the cook (see picture) was particularly entertaining, flamboyantly preparing food and singing at the same time. The... More

My wife & I read about it on tripadvisor and were also told by the concierge in Marriott to visit it. We were glad we did. The concept was really unique. In the beginning we had a magic show by the chef. This was followed by some group songs. Then later came the solo numbers, duets and more cooks &... More

Not so much the food (which can pass) but the general ambience and turmoil can put a diner, especially if a foreigner, ill at ease. Put your place in his shoes. How does one enjoy a meal consisting of thoroughly unfamiliar dishes when out of the blue, you hear banging and loud singing. The crew was not singing, they were... More

What a great night out. The entertainment was fantastic and the food was superb. I think this is the best "bang for your buck" of any restaurant I've been to anywhere. Even taking into account the difference in prices between North America and the Philippines this was still an unreal deal. The food was priced like some of the middle... More

Good food and entertainment. We had the seafood and meat platter for four. The fish was excellent as were the clams. Highly recommend it.

My wife made sure we could experience the best dining with humor and song on the last night we were in Manila. Thanks again to Chef Ivan, Ben and Adrian and all the others. Highly recommended to all!
