I like eating at Max, great service and good food. I will keep going back there. When my family craves for filipino food, we go to Max, I have not been disappointed so far.

We got seated after 45 minutes. As usual, the food was as I expected. The fried chicken is the best.

Been in the place multiple times for lunch or dinner with the family. Love Filipino food and had been to a few. The food is the same , but the taste had changed. Too salty, missing an ingredient? My wife knows the previous cook, he had been transferred to a different location. If you had been here multiple times, eating... More

Our waiter was great and the food was delicious! I had the fried chicken and ate with the banana, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce combo recommended by the waiter. It was soooo good! My friend got the chicken adobo and it was so tasty.!

Went to Glendale to visit my cousin and her stepmum recommended this Filipino restaurant (her husband's Filipino). My cousin said everything there is yummy and I won't regret going there. As soon as we stepped in the restaurant, I already started regretting why I agreed going with them. Everyone was so loud there! The Filipinos in the resto was sooooo... More

1. The Spicy Laing Tilapia fish is very good but at $12.95, it does not include rice - in fact, none of their entrees include rice so it makes it expensive. The small side order of rice is $4.95 and a large which looks about 3 cups of rice is plenty for 4 people. The rice is long grain rice... More

Here we found the authentic Filipino food that we've been craving for....though the place was jam packed, we didn't wait for so long to be seated. The ambiance was nice plus the hassle free valet parking.
