As expected, still very good fried crabs. Unfortunately, they do not have frog legs when we were there. Their polunchay in garlic and the jelly fish in their 3 kinds cold cuts were also good but the rest of the food we ordered were way below our expectations: the full of fat and over reddish pork asado & extra dry...

We decided to have my mom's birthday lunch here since we went to hear mass at Quiapo church. I used to eat in this restaurant some years ago when I don't really bother on foods that I eat - simply sit down, eat and consider everything delicious. This time around is my chance to really have a good review of... More

Emerald Garden Restaurant along Roxas Boulevard fronting the U.S. Embassy is one of the most famous Chinese restaurants in Manila. It's always busy at the restaurants, but the waiters do their best to cope with throng of diners. Place is not so nice, decoration is 1 star, atmosphere not so cozy, but the food is great. The Fish Roll is... More

Routine stop-by in the town, estimated about 6 times thus far. Myself as a Chinese why even bother to have my own national cuisine when I'm aboard, actually it was my first thought until i brought by a local friend of mine. After the first time dine out in this place, I was fascinated with the creature of crab, such... More

This is one drab tired place that we'd frequent when we find ourselves in Manila because the food is great -- which is just about the ONE reason why we always go back to Emerald Garden. But as always, their siopao is out of stock. My daughter asked -- as she's been raring to sample the fare -- whether the... More

I have eaten here many times already. The place looks old and a bit worn out but the dishes are delicious. there are plenty of choices and the prices are ok. Sometimes the place will be full so make sure to get there earlier for lunch and dinner.

This is the place to go if you have a craving for Chinese food. Rather than drive to crowded Binondo area, this place offers real good Chinese dishes. Love their Pata Tim & steamed shrimps "suahe", the crabs were soooo yummy & taste has the kick! Just wish their yang chow fried rice would taste better, hope they can improve... More
