“Dark, slow below par food”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Was invited here by colleagues. The place is a bakeshop on one side; cafeteria style format in the middle and left side has tables used to order from a menu aside from those who pick it up on the cafeteria style area. The glass noodle dish is so-so; pork hock stew ?? very tough which we mentioned and waiter just shrugged us off; eggplant omelette, nice; veggie stew, overcooked and cold, we had to ask them to microwave it . We asked for water and the glass still had a lipstick stain on it. It is busy and noisy. Tried the sponge cake to go and purple puto-rice cake. Dishes has no taste at all

“Weekend Breakfast Buffet”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

I used to love going to Goldilocks on weekends for breakfast, but ever since they change it to a breakfast buffet from Friday-Sunday I stop going there. The foods are still good but you don't get to put your own food on your plate. Somebody is assign to do that for you which is really annoying when you tell them just a little bit they pack it in or when you ask for more they look at you like your begging for food. Most of the fried foods are already dry and cold. I wish they would go back to regular breakfast on weekends.
My favorite on pastries and bread sections are ensaymada, ube bread and fresh siopao.
They also sell taho but just this weekend when I bought 4 they only fill the cups halfway.

“Never again...”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

Every time we are down in California, we usually come and eat here. So, we decided to eat here on a Saturday. It took 15 mins for someone to visit our table. I told a young server who was bringing some food to the next table that we are ready to order but he was too cool to stop and look at us in the eyes. Finally the food arrived and our disappointment continued with this restaurant. We all think this place is filthy . I am not picky but the dining area is so greasy and the plates and utensils are not washed well. Hopefully, this place will get a total overhaul. This place needs a BIG spring cleaning and fresh paint. I can't believe the owner just let this one go. The bakery goods are the only one edible here. A

“Great for a little Filipino food fix!”
Reviewed April 2, 2012

My family eats here a lot (my taste in Filipino food is limited--I'm a picky eater), but the folks love it and order a variety of dishes. I love perusing the bakery portion of the restaurant to buy the Filipino delicacies like polvorón with casuy (a dry shortbread-type "cookie" with ground cashew nuts. They sell amazing cakes here too, for all occasions!
