We went to the Tao Yuan at the Greenbelt 3 Mall in Makati. Very nice, classy decor. As for the food, the laksa was tasty and the Singapore sambal and vermicelli were good, but I would have preferred them spicier. The black gulaman dessert with lychee was an unusual treat. The service couldn't have been better. The waitresses and waiters were most gracious, but the manager could smile once in a while.

Excellent Service. You never have to look around for assistance. Someone is always ready to attend to your needs. Food, excellent too.

My fiancee and I have been here twice and it will become our regular local restaurant when we stay at the nearby Pan Pacific Hotel. Though comparatively pricey, the food is delicious offering both Chinese and Singapore cuisine. Last night we tried the Lapu Lapu with mango, Singapore style, a unique take on sweet and sour. As with Filipino restaurants in general, the service is excellent and the staff very warm and hospitable.

I've had several fantastic meals here over the years, and came back recently for their Singapore Chili Crab - super delicious. Also had the chef's specialty steamed fish with mushroom and ham - very nice. Coming from the US, the prices were very reasonable (about $35 for a 700 g crab, $9 for the fish dish), food was fresh and perfectly flavored, service was very attentive. Highly recommend and will definitely be back!

I went to the Lucky Chinatown branch with my family. We order 1/2 a chicken, and others dish from the friendly woman, who say she was from Malaysia, and had stayed in Phil for 40 years. When the food is served, we are surprise by the standard of the boiled chicken(white chicken). It is moist, juicy, smooth. The rice is fluffy and smell fragrant, like ginger, chicken oil, etc. We are surprised to find such good standard chicken rice right here in Manila. It can rival some famous outlets in Singapore. it cost 450p for 1/2 bird and 50p for a bowl of hainanese rice(this is what they called it). But, the Mango with Lapu Lapu( fried fish) 850p don't taste too good as the mango slice is too much that it cover the taste of the fish.
Service is prompt and friendly. Ambient is presentable and modern Chinese. Will try their Malate branch if visit Phil again.
Take note there is a 12 % Vat and 10% service charge, (but we are given a 10% off)
