Filipino food

Great tasting Filipino food!! Would be 5 stars but the service was kinda long because they seemed backed up on orders. But other than that, great job!!

Attended a small party of friends and family in patio Filipino. It was a buffet lunch with variety of choices and unlimited sweetened tea. The server was attentive, always going around to make sure we have what we need. The food...omg! I didn't realize, I miss Filipino food. Even my vegetarian friend tried the kare kare! They're really great tasting!Dessert... More

This is a traditional Filipino restaurant serving a Filipino menu. Our family party of 8 had lunch here and all the food we ordered was delicious. The hala-halo was excellent as well. The wait staff was very good.

A while back we saw this restaurant reviewed on KQED's "Check Please" program and it looked interesting. We happened to be in the area around dinnertime and decided to give it a try. The place was packed. No AC - it was warm inside with a rather modest aging decor. However the food was excellent. We had their signature Milkfish... More

Met with friends and this restaurant was recommended. I must say, the food was excellent-nice size servings, excellent quality. Service was good and staff well informed about their menu. We will be back. Prices seemed high, but worth it.

I really wanted to like this restaurant a lot since it has received so many good reviews. Came here on a Sunday afternoon, made reservations for 5:30pm. Got there on time with a party of 8. You would think service would be good since there weren't a lot of customers yet. We had to wait for about 20 minutes just... More

We went for dinner after living 5 years in the Philippines and not having had Filipino food in a long time. Place was packed, but it was late so we were able to be seated. Get your own menu, even though you wouldn't know to do so. Had fried calamari and San Miguel beer. Beer was like we remembered and... More

They offer an extensive menu of what tastes like home made authentic food from the Philippines. Service was a little slow as they were very busy with a full house on a week night. Reservations are recommended. Offers indoor and outdoor dinning options.

went with my cousin and her husband. You can't get good Pinay food in Orlando and this was our one and only chance on this rush trip to SF. I'm anglo with Pinay family, so I know what's good. Pansit with seafood was very good. Adobo was good but not off the charts (like my mom made). We ordered entrees... More

There I said it. I think this is the best Filipino restaurant in the Bay Area. My friends and I went to this place to celebrate a friend's dinner who is not Filipino and is very interested in trying this place out after seeing it featured on Check Please!. All of my friends (take note-theyre not Filipinos) loved all the... More
