As a 6 year old kid back in the late 70s, my family took me to the Aristocrat restaurant somewhere in the Cubao area. That was where my love affair with chicken barbecue and dinuguan began. During the late 80s to the 90s, Aristocrat set up court in Quezon Avenue. As a teenager this time our family had lots of... More

We ate for dinner and ordered the bbq chicken, pancit canton & kare-kare. All delicious and was seved fast. This is a busy place, yet we were seated fast and served fast. This restaurant doesn't disappoint in the quality of food. My daughter also likedthe buko juice that was served in the buko itself and very cold!
