The place was small. Don't expect a fancy restaurant. The tables are small and I've seen 3 people fit on one table. The waitstaff were attentive. The menu were explained and the food came out quickly. Food portions were good for sharing. Even the appetizers could already be mains by their sizes. For those unused to Filipino food, expect fried... More

I have never had Filipino food before, so I wasn't sure what to expect coming here. I went with a group of people and we all ordered different things and shared. Everything was very delicious! Would absolutely recommend this place! The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly as well.

Maharlika is the bomb! I haven't been exposed to much Filipino food aside from the basic staples, so this restaurant was a pleasant surprise. On Sunday's only, Maharlika offers a family-style pre-fixe menu for $30pp. We had a group of 5, I don't remember the names of all the dishes we got, but there was more than enough food to... More

kare-kare was the best amongst our order. laing was nice too however the serving was quite tiny. the crispy pata was also delicious. just a reminder that this is not the typical filipino restaurant where you expect bountiful size of servings. the plating of food is also modern, not the typical pinoy way. we had a feast! sarap!

Our dinner here was delicious. We decided to eat at the bar since there was a wait for a table. The bartender was very friendly and provided good service. We ordered the lamb shank and Kare Kare. Both were in a deep rich sauce with the oxtail being peanut based and both were a large portion. I have had Kare... More

Came here for brunch on a Saturday and was glad we were able to be seated right away. We ordered arrozcaldo, bibingka, and chicken and waffles. The ratings and reviews of this place is legit.

If you've never experienced Filipino food, this is the place to try! Unbelievable flavors, attentive service, in a homey environment. We had the chicken and ube waffles with macapuno syrup. Lumpia were crisp and non greasy. Others had a delicious rice caldo, long anise and an eggplant omelet which was fantastic. It really was like Filipino soul food. Definitely worth... More

Me and my boyfriend tried this restaurant and the food is very good for me as an asian. But for Americans , their food is quite strange for them. But me I liked it a lot. Their Crispy Pata is delicious. The price is right too.

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village, which offers plenty of unique small businesses catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the old-time neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
