Stopped by just to double check the earlier visit and horrible review I gave them - just incase I might have misread the situation. But again - if you are a foreginer you will wait for everything here. Any of the positive reviews in my opinion are most likely just friends, family or employees of this establishment. Point blank... the... More

I've been to aristocrats many times in the past because of its location and reputation. This time I was disappointed. Despite there not being many customers the service was slow both in ordering food and in paying the bill. The good was just average and probably expensive given it's quality. The ambience is pleasant but th experience was not as... More

My family and I have been a loyal customer of Aristocrat Malate. Iv'e got to say the taste food is still awesome, but i returned my chicken was still raw on the inside which's very dangerous. My auntie ordered "palabok", It was bland. And secondly, The waiters we're very un accommodating. We do understand that the waiters are under pressure... More

The Aristocrat always top the list in Filipino style Chicken Barbecue. My kids love the juicy sweet perfectly char-grilled chicken, a cup of Java Rice is never enough when partnered with its special peanut sauce. Make sure to come early as the place is always full. From foreigner to the locals, it is always a place for family long-table gatherings.

Whether you are a local, a tourist or a "balikbayan" The Aristocrat (the original one in Roxas Blvd at least) is a must place to eat in when you need a taste of the Filipino cuisine with a wide variety of other foreign dishes. The prices are reasonable for the portions they serve. Must try (and will have again and... More

Waited for the ordered food to be served for more than 20 mins the worst part was the food was not even HOT! The place was hot would rather eat outside where there is hot air touching your skin instead of none at all! To our dismay we even asked for the bill before the food was served and ate... More

Aristocrat is an old Filipino mainstay. One of the best chicken barbecues and at a great price. For dessert, the Torta de los reyes my family's absolute favorite. Totally decadent but worth every single calorie. Service though is terrible. We prefer to do take out as it takes forever waiting for your food to arrive. As for the ambiance, well... More

It may not be everyone's comfort food but for people that grew up in Manila through the 60s, Aristocrat Chicken Barbecue is a staple. Served with with what we call an orange Java rice and a sticky salty sweet dark Java sauce (something uniquely theirs and does not exist in Java, Indonesia), it brings back childhood memories. There are many... More
