The best-tasting Chinese food in the Philippines. Perhaps an exaggeration but no one would dispute that in terms of taste and quality of the food they serve, nothing beats this restaurant. Their succulent Peking Duck simply the best. The steam grouper wow!

Food was very good. Portions were big enough. Price also quite acceptable. Place looks clean. Restrooms need to be cleaned better, it was quite smelly. Would have been 5 stars if restrooms were better maintained.

I was in China town when I came across this gem, China town is very dirty place lots of people, many outside booths, prices are cheap for clothing, lots of gold stores, so it's time for lunch we see this very beautiful place in between the crazy streets. So we went in what a surprise, clean, very well received, was... More

My daughter and I had dinner here for the first time as we would like to try the food behind the grand name outside :) We were happy with the food's big serving, one viand was enough for 2 to 3 persons. We had Salt & Chili Pork Ribs with vinegar dip, which is tender, tasty and cooked just right... More

This restaurant is as expected when eating in Chinatown. Very large, bright lights, lot of big tables. Fully booked on Sunday afternoon, must be over 300 people. Foor was good, not exceptional, lemon duck had sugar on it.... Other dishes were good, service good, overall good but average.

The food itself was nice. The ingredients were fresh. But they seriously lack servers/waiters. We visited on Sunday for lunch. There were 2 big groups of celebrations and the servers/waiters were just too busy to accommodate everyone.

The restaurant is actually 'President Grand Palace Restaurant' hopefully they get the listing updated. We had fresh steamed lapu-lapu, sweet and sour pork, lemon chicken, sautéed scallops and mixed fried rice, every dish was great. Served with boiled peanuts and oolong tea. Servers were extremely attentive, food came rapidly, dining room and bathrooms very clean. Ongpin street on the other... More
