I have been to Max's all over the Philippines and the US...this restaurant failed expectations. To be fair we came in late, regardless - standards should be standards no matter what time of day food is prepared.

Love and miss Pinoy food? Then do not miss this restaurant. Located near Glendale's shopping mall, this Filipino restaurant serves fine dining with fast service. On some days you may have to wait for your table, which perhaps depends on the time of the day. Servings is good to more than enough. Food like Crispy Pata, Kare kare, sinigang, &... More

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.

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.!

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
