Been quite a while since I ate here. Hakaw is passable. Radish cake good. Congee is good but I heard it was better. Hofan is good and aldente both pork and seafood. Service is passable. The place is packed at 8am in the morning.

Pretty good Chinese food. We decided to eat there on a whim since it was close to the hotel. And we saw a lot of Chinese people entering so we figured a Chinese food restaurant with lots of Chinese must be ok. The servings were huge and we had lots of food for take out.

Had a late late at Emerald Garden, we were so tired after a long traffic from Antipolo and upon arrival , the restaurant was full packed. We were told to seat and wait but unlike other restaurant, there was no reservation list so waiting guests relied only on whoever attended. With that "style", we decided to just literally man and...

My favorite spot in Manila for eating morning dimsum. The resto is getting smaller over the years but those familiar with this place will surely get sentimental. The Emerald Siopao is rather hefty & too filling but still a must-try.Most dimsum in the menu is below 100 pesos and you can still order the morning treats till lunch. That is,... More

I've eaten here countless times through the years and have not ever been disappointed. The servings are large and flavorful, and the menu has everything you could want, with everything priced reasonably. A good dinner choice.

Have been eating at this restaurant since I was a kid and through the years the food has not change. It would be best if you come early as there are a lot of customers or better yet call for reservation if you come in groups.

After reading the reviews we decided to try this restaurant as it was just around the corner. Big mistake. It really caters more for the very traditional type of Chinese food not what we have come to expect or have at most restaurants serving Chinese food. We ordered the Chicken and cashews which was bland but OK, and the Fried... More
