Description: The Philippine Islands...an archipelago of over 7,100 islands, abundant in natural resources, endowed with a variety of seafood, tropical flora and fauna. Combine these with the Filipinos vibrant history of Malay-Polynesian origin which evolved through barter trade with China, the Middle East, India and South East Asia. Add the long-standing Spanish and temporary American colonization. Blend these with the inherent Filipino traits of hospitality, curiosity and creativity; and you have something out of the ordinary, diverse, exotic and authentically fusion cuisine. At CASA manila, we celebrate Festive Filipino Flavour by offering a refreshing assortment prepared the fresh and healthy way; No MSG added, lower salt and oil, fresh meat - seafood - vegetables served straight from the kawali as it's ready.

This restaurant has inviting and pleasant decor, with a casual and really attractive Filipino feel to it. The servers are pleasant and charming, and the owner is present to ensure everyone is enjoying their dining experience. The food is excellent and I would invite anyone interested to check out the menu on the Casa's website. It is varied and good. For anyone seeking good Filipino food in a fairly basic yet pleasant and attractive local restaurant, this is the place to go.

Definitely a big change from the old Casa Manila. Now that it is under a new management they really fixed up the place and the menu ! It is now a full service restaurant complemented with very cozy interiors. A pleasant dining experience. Some items have big portions. Will go back for Filipino Food here.

Casa Manila is a great and surprising treat for your tastebuds! Having never tried Filopino food before, I was unsure what to expect. However, the extremely friendly service and a well constructed menu makes it easy to make the right choices for your meal. If you enjoy garlic, then you will enjoy Casa Manila. We started with the chicken spring rolls, twelve little guys with a slightly sweet cranberry/lingonberry type of of sauce. It was very nice, though a little more of the sauce would be appreciated! The garlic rice has the perfect roasted garlic and sesame flavour, it creates the perfect bed for mains. We enjoyed the garlic adobo chicken and the spicy beef tenderloin for our main dishes. The garlic adobo has an addictive citrus soy sauce that makes you crave for more. The spicy beef tenderloin has a nice heat that packs the right punch for the meal. My wife really enjoyed the Sarsi, Filopino root beer. It has a strong licorice flavour, so if that's not your deal, then avoid. The atmosphere is really warm and endearing. It has a tropical feel that isn't cheesy. My biggest qualm with Casa Manila was the slow service. Though friendly and helpful, the hour plus dinner was a meal that could have been a forty-five minute event. This includes me having to actually go up to the cash to get my bill to pay. They did apologize about the slow service, but it was still too slow. Maybe the service was a one-off bad night, but the food really gives Casa Manila a top rating in my book. I hope to get to Casa Manila in the near future to enjoy another top notch meal, I just hope top notch service will greet me at my next visit!

What a delight to find a delicious Filipino restaurant in Toronto! The atmosphere is charming and service is very friendly. More importantly, every dish we tried, from the pancit to the sinigang, was deliciously prepared. Can't wait to go back!
