“Low value for your money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Last Oct 20, i had the chance of dinning at the Jupiter Ave outlet after passing by for a month or so. it was a decision that I ever regretted stopping. Though it was not to expensive but it was very expensive in terms of value for money. I don't know what the management was thinking, even when they were surrounded by outlets that offer unlimited rice they still insist on their price. one example is their top rice with a price of P99, their neighbors have the same range and unlimited rice while Manang's have only one scoop and not unlimited. Their chicken price is no better they price it at P145 with 3 pcs chicken wings. I mean are they doing their proper due diligence in their research or not? they could have just offer it at P99 with 2 pcs and unlimited rice and it would be a hit but with their price I don't think this restaurant will last

“Lots of Sauce :)”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012

I finally tried Manang's Chicken for the first time on its Katipunan Branch

The place is really small and cramped so I suggest just taking your order to go

Anyways, the price, is so-so
It is not that all different from Chicken Charlie and Bon Chon
However, the chicken portions seem to be larger than the other two so that is a plus for me
In addition, I tried the Extra Spicy sauce and it really did have that bit of a kick
While it's true that the chicken tasted a bit too salty for my taste, I somewhat still enjoyed it
The sauce, in a generous amount, that bathed the taste of the whole meat sold it for me

I also ordered a coleslaw... which turned out to be not something to rave about
The dressing was really very little and the vegetables were alright
I like the fact that there were red onion bits though! Just adds a bit of spice on the salad

A little more work and it's going to be a good chicken place for me

“Disgustingly salty!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

We ordered six-piece chicken wing meal, with rice upgraded to chips. It was fried chicken drowned in soy sauce. We were able to eat one piece only as it was not healthy and tasty to eat the rest because of the excessive saltiness. The saving grace was the potato chips. It was made from real potatoes and fried crisp.
