This place makes Filipino food into the classy, timeless food that it has been destined for. For brunch, try the ube pancakes. For a snack, try the spam fries. Either way, enjoy the great service, the beautiful decor, and the wide variety of Filipino fusion.

This was my first Filipino meal and it was DELICIOUS! Very savory food, great drinks, fantastic service, and the place is so much bigger than you think it is. The decoration was a really nice touch as well. Definitely recommended, although it is a little far from the city center. Prices were also very fair!

Went on Mother's Day with my wife and our daughter and son-in-law. Everything was a hit, and this was after we had just disembarked from a cruise. My wife is from the Philippines and she is a tough critic of Filipino restaurants, but she and our daughter loved the mango waffles. My son-in-law had "Eggs Benigno" and I had an... More

We dropped in 5.30 pm, no other customers, we got the only table with window. Waitress was very helpful, we had delicious fish and meat dishes. I have no previous experience of Filipino fine dining, and I was impressed, Service was effective and meals were prepared promptly. Several specialities available.

Came here the following day after Pacquiao beat Bradley (coincidence) ...the atmosphere is welcoming and the food was surprisingly delicious! Our waiter knew all the selection on the menu and was helpful if u didn't know what to choose. Authentic traditional Filipino food minus the typical greasy home cooked versions. Everything tasted fresh. I'm definitely coming back for seconds!

As I walked inside the restaurant and seeing that 50% of the clientele were not Filipinos and listening to their comments about the food, made me proud that Filipino cuisine is finally being recognized. I had the chicken and ube waffles (loved it) and my husband had the tapsilog. Your garlic fried rice is really good. We hope to be... More

We booked a table here for our trip from a recommendation in The Times magazine in the UK, after reading some of the bad reviews on here we almost didn't go. However I am glad we did, the atmosphere and the food was awesome! The staff were friendly and the service is great. Beware though, the portions are HUGE!

We just stumbled into this restaurant and boy were we treated to a yummy brunch. My favorite was the flank steak that came with the most amazing garlic rice with a perfectly cooked sunny side up egg on top. Heaven on a plate. Yummy drinks too and a nice friendly waitstaff. Thanks y'all.

We had a delicious lunch here. A modest appearing place in the East Village. We were admittedly fairly ignorant about Filipino cuisine, but our server was very helpful. The cocktails were delicious. Highly reccomended for something a bit unusual but very satisfying.

It's not easy for us to find good Filipino restaurants and now we have found a great one that tastes authentic with an added flare. The pancit behon tastes the way my mom used to make it. Wonderful! The pork adobo had more sophisticated flavor than what we were used to eating, a very nice tanginess and sweetness. The best... More
