Best chicken bbq

Consistently serves great Filipino food, ambience strives to be authentically old-style, staff tries to be accommodating in spite of the often large lunch crowd :) one of my family's favorite restaurants :)

My father used to work here 15 years ago. He used to take us here when we were young. We still go here though cause it is near our house and I must admit, this is one of the best resto for filipino food. However, some of their food taste different from what is was before. Their chicken bbq is... More

Still one of the best and all time favorite chicken barbeque. The place is clean, the waiters are courteous although the waiting time for the barbeque to be serve is 15-20 mins. Chicken meat is soft and tender be it boneless or the three piece chicken.

A well-known Manila restaurant institution that has lost it's focus. Aristocrat serves Filipino comfort food and the food can be pretty good. Unfortunately, the ambiance is awful and the service is almost non-existent. The dining rooms are noisy, crowded and none too clean. The service staff is young, relatively untrained and much more interested in each other than the guests.... More

I don't know why the place has so many good reviews because we didn't think it was that outstanding at all. The price was not that high, but not cheap either. The restaurant itself is very crowded and noisy, but not problematic. We had much better tasting meals from smaller and cheaper restaurants in other parts of the Philippines. I'd... More
