We went in a large group on Friday night and the evening was full of hits and misses. Some of the food was amazing (grilled fishes, fried pork) and other dishes were just really not great (sweet and sour fish, eggplant patties). Keep in mind that on Friday nights there is a music concert and it's a loud affair but... More

Payag Restaurant serves Filipino cuisine. It is nothing spectacular but they try to satisfy one's craving for the Asian flair. You can hold parties in the basement and it can accommodate at least 150 guests. Service is good. The location is right by the 52nd Street subway station. You will not miss it as soon as go down the stairs... More

Our group of 10+ ate here on a Friday evening around 7:00. The space was less than half full when we arrived but filled up quickly with the anticipated impending arrival of that evening's live entertainment. We didn't stay to for it, but I hear it's a pleasant experience. Being my first time indulging in Filipino cuisine I kept it... More

Well, the decor, ambience and place were quite good enough for Filipino atmosphere. The food, bulalo steak and soup, Mahi with tausi, tortang talong with its good presentation, pancit sotanghon & langka sa gata- they're all taste good. The service, we came at about 1 o'clock in the afternoon- few tables and we stayed almost 2 hrs. because it's not... More

My husband and I got takeout food from this restaurant. It is a large dining from that was fairly empty on a recent weekend afternoon. Clean, with a well-appointed bar and a fantastic menu. We were looking forward to sampling the food. We ordered Pinkabet, which was utterly delicious -a combination of bitter melon, okra, pumpkin and other veggies with... More

Visited this place, and as we are not familiar with filipino cuisine they could have given us anything. Anyway we enjoyed it and also the atmosphere as the restaurant doubles as a kareoke centre for the filipino community. Service was good, food was good not overly luxurious but enjoyable

On a late Friday night, my husband and I tried this restaurant and were terribly disappointed. We had already eaten a light dinner at home so we started our order with one drink and one noodle dish and told the waiter we would order more drinks and dishes later. We waited a while for the noodle dish to arrive and... More

Not your typical Filipino food but it's good. Went with some friends for lunch and was quite impressed with the place, nice ambience and good service. We ordered coconut lychee shake, baked tahong, ensaladang puso ng saging, pork belly, pancit bihon and ginataang sitaw & kalabasa. Everything was ok except for the pancit bihon, they put red bell pepper on... More
