“A must eat chicken in Manila!”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Wether you are a foreigner or a Filipino local. The BBQ chicken of Aristocrat is a must try food in Manila. The Manila bay facing part of the resto is now newly renovated. Don't expect a fastfood pace service though during meal times.

“Don't Go Changing”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Chicken Barbeque like you never experienced before....no one does it better than Aristocrat. But when the place gets too crowded, you have to have patience for the food to get to your table.

“Pleasant barbeque”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

We all enjoyed both the chicken and pork BBQ.

The meat was tender and juicy, while it arrived hot. The last is extremely important to me but is often not the case in Manila.

The other specialty item on their menu is one of the best in Philippines: their club sandwich - freshly made and very, very good.

I will return to Aristocrat!

“A satisfying meal in an unfamiliar place.”
Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Visiting the Philippines, I was told that The Aristocrat Restaurant was a local favourite.

I tried the BBQ pork meal with Java rice. The rice was not anything special, but the pork was tender and tasty. The dish is served with a sachet of "java sauce" that is used for the meat. It is a sweet peanut sauce tht is great for dipping.

I also tried the Gulaman at Sago, which is a sweet drink with tapioca and jello. This is a traditional dessert/drink found in the Philippines.

It was nice and cold, and not overly sweet. It hit the right spot after having lunch.

Although I was not blown away by the food, it was pleasant and did not disappoint.

“Famous with Filipinos”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

but if you are a westerner this place isn't for you. It's crowded, smells and the food is local food.
