We dined at the Fountain Court branch of the restaurant in SMX Lanang. Since there were a lot of customers queued at that time, we just ordered the set menu good for 4 to 5 people. The Crispy Pata and the Kare-kare were very good. We also ordered some Spicy Clams which were not spicy at all but it was... More

When we went to the place, there were less people than the other restaurants besides it so we were hesitant. But we went in anyway because of good reviews on other sites. We had crispy pata, pomelo salad, bacon wrapped bagaybay, tinolang imbaw (clam soup), durian ice cream with biko - everything is so good! No regrets we went in.... More

Really appreciate the cleanliness of the resto, the ambience is soothing. The food was very good, a nice break from all the fast-food and other heavily westernized meals. They made some inspiring twists on the staple Filipino food which is very refreshing. The servings are not that huge, though. I'd say you'd only be paying mostly for the 'experience' if... More

Went to eat in SM Lanang with the family and ate here for dinner. Food was great. My dad is a big critic when it comes to food but he ended loving the place. Mom is an impatient woman but whenever she calls on the staff, they're always attentive to satisfy your needs. Not disappointed in any circumstance and had... More

There are enough choices on the menu. The servings are not very generous. Service is so-so. But the place is bright and clean. There are other choices nearby.

Must try the bacon-wrapped bagaybay! Delicious! This is a modern fancier version of the Filipino dishes. Good for two servings. The food was fantastic and the staff were very friendly and attentive. They were smiling every time they approach. Great job!

We had a great lunch here. I'd say try their crispy pata, imbao soup and binukadkad na tilapia. Their wait staff are polite and the service is fairly fast. The place looks simple yet elegant, and nice overlooking view too. I can't wait to have another dinner out with my family here again.

Good atmosphere, good service, wide selection of Filipino plates, but this is a place to order Crispy Pata.. Convenient location at SM Lanang Mall.

It was a nice experience taking our lunch at Selera. We enjoyed our ordered food and that was truly delicious. The Kinilaw was yummy and the brown rice was nicely presented. Vegetable salad was equally tasty too. We took time to savor the tasty menu we ordered.
