Tasty fast food

The Aristocrat is a 24/7 Manila institution going back 40 years plus. It is now airconditioned, of course, and has a kind of VIP room, but still serves wholesome Chinese-style and Filipino food to the masses.

Dine here every time been away for sometime and missed Filipino food. Early morning arrival flight and starving coz have not eaten flight meals..this is the place to run to. They changed the longganiza meal serving though, they sliced it in halves so it's kinda dry. The place is always full packed so sometimes the serving of food is delayed.

Aristocrat Restaurant has been there forever, along the famous Roxas Blvd. (formerly Dewey Blvd.). It's a big sprawling restaurant that's open 24 hours and 365 days a year, and does 366 days on a leap year. Famous for its Chicken BBQ with Java Rice, which everyone orders, but not to miss are their famous Crab Fu Yong and Sotanghon Soup.... More

Friday Night and traffic is so heavy! me & my girlfriend (literally... a girl friend) decided to have a dinner together and let time pass to avoid traffic. We are just craving for the mouth watering Chicken BBQ and Pork ribs BBQ (one of my favorite!). The BBQ sauce is so tasty and delectable to my taste.

Last night in Manila wanted authentic local food this place is great and we had too much to eat really but wanted to try as much as possible. The pork is very good and they have great fresh seafood. In a city being absorbed by horrible US fast food chains it's great to find real well made food.

This is the place to eat their specialty. Port and chicken BBQ. There are other restaurant that copied this simple grilled pork and chicken but nothing can compare. Whenever I am in Manila, I have to stop by Aristocrat Restaurant just for the BBQ. A 24 hour establishment that is always crowded but the staff seams to get your table... More

I've been bragging to my husband about my childhood days when we'd eat at The Aristocrat in Roxas boulevard after a mornings jog in luneta. So when the opportunity came that he had a meeting somewhere in the malate area, we decided to go and visit The Aristocrat. Of course the place was already renovated, no more open air seating...

this place has the best chicken barbeque in the philippines, they have been around since the 70's or older. prices are reasonable and is always a great place for family and friends. though the food is great, and with lots of people dining everyday, the waiters tend to slack of a bit, you would try to get their attention and...
