“Consistent food quality and service make this one of my favorites.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

After watching a late afternoon movie my wife and decided spur of the moment to have dinner at Mamou's new branch at the PowerPlant Mall.

We had contrasting appetites that evening: she was still full from a late and satisfying lunch while was quite hungry having had only a small salad for lunch. And so I ordered an 8oz prime rib with baked mashed potato and creamed spinach on the side while she asked for a large salad.

Our orders came well within the time anyone, consciously or sub-consciously, allots for it. I enjoyed every last morsel of my meal made all the more so by a nice glass of Cabernet. My wife also enjoyed her salad commenting that the dressing was "just right."

To simply say that Mamou serves comfort food isn't really doing justice to the expert culinary skills required to produce such high quality consistently. But I do take "comfort" in knowing that there's always one restaurant I can rely on for good food and excellent friendly service all the time.

“Miele top restaurant?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

My friends and I were wondering why this restaurant made in the list of Miele's top restaurant. The food wasn't impressive at all. Our ribeye tasted good (we requested medium, got rare instead) but it was too "fatty."

The dips and sidings were a letdown. It tasted like it was stocked for a long time.

I want to go back again and try their other steaks and hopefully next time, i'll have a better dining experience.

Nice interiors though.

“V. Good Steaks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

The food in the restaurant was really above the average in the neighbourhood. The starters, fish and side dishes were really good. The steaks in the house (altough expensive), really were worth the delight. Even the desserts were fine, which is not the best part of any Manila restaurant menu :). To sum up, expensive but really tasty food. More for a gathering, business meeting. If you are up for a romantic "date", skip the place as it is a bit too crowded and noisy.

“Over-rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Mamou is noisy. It is crowded. It has absolutely no ambiance to speak of. The food is quite un-memorable while the price is very memorable. Only thing going for this restaurant is the speed by which they get food to your table from the time you sit down.

Started with an appetizer, then a salad and a steak. Finished the entire dinner in exactly 30 minutes flat. It feels like they want to get you out of the door. Rightly so, though. As I had no desire to stay another minute.
