The restaurant has not modernized, still having that old Chinese tea house look with ceiling fans and no airconditioning. But the Siopao is still the same as it was 25 years ago when i started eating in this place. And to think that this is the original home of the Mami makes it more special. Just the smell of the...

If I am really hungry, Ma Mon Luk is the place to be. Though the staff may sometimes be slow, the food is always a treat after a hard days work. Always come here with friends. One order is too much for one guy to handle.

if you belong to the 70s this place will strike a nostalgic chord in you. The atmosphere is very down to earth, setting is simple and the mami/ siopao is even simpler. I eat there for the memories of happy family outings. If you're picky this might not be the place for you. But for me,and many others who troop... More

They only had mami, siopao and siomai - eh di sana nag Pares nalang ako. its also a bit pricey for those choices. Well their Siopao was great and huge... More

Conveniently located in Quiapo. Siopao and mami whether regular or special is a must try. One thing that is noticeable is the ambiance here. Don't expect it to be similar with the Chinese food chain along the same street. This is a true value for money when it comes to food.

Their beef and wanton noodle soup is very oily. You wouldn't touch this stuff when you are having a hypertension.

When eating siopao, make sure to remove the outer skin for better look of the food :). Try the noodles for one time. not worth the second. Just order siopao siopao siopao
