“Filipino food rocks!”
Reviewed April 5, 2012

If you are craving halo-halo and kare-kare on this part of the world then Little Quiapo is where you should be. I don't know what is the secret of their Pancit Palabok (rice noodles with shrimp sauce) but you just need a small serving for you to feel full. The variety of Filipino food is quite impressive so you could visit that restaurant everyday for the next few weeks without being satiated.

“Sarap (delicious)”
Reviewed December 31, 2011

Found this place through an ad in a Filipino chicago newspaper. Had to give it a try. Little hard to get to since it is off the freeway but it was worth the trip. So many authentic Filipino delicacies...crispy pata, lechon paksiw, lumpia...everything was great. Only problem was that we got so full on lunch we had no room for their halo halo. :-(

“Good Food & Atmostphere”
Reviewed September 28, 2010

This place is cool! Definitely got the filipino culture atmosphere going on - music, decor, even the food stations were built to resemble a jeepney. Plenty of food & dessert to chose from. Not that hard to find; in a good part of town.

“To Try Philippine Food - A Good and Safe Choice”
Reviewed January 9, 2010

I would recommend this place for Filipinos looking to eat traditional Filipino food and for all others who may just want a low-risk way to try something different. The restaurant itself is unpretentious but certainly welcoming and clean. We have received good service whenever we've gone. The atmosphere is relaxed and almost family-like. They offer a variety of food items that Filipinos would usually eat. Because it is an all you can eat buffet, you can sample different dishes without worrying if you will like what you ordered or not. Of course, you can eat as much or as little as you want. My problem is that I always over eat. Yes, there are a lot of fried stuff but there are stews, soups, noodles, and even vegetable dishes. On weekends, they even serve "lechon' - a whole roast pig. The price is very reasonable, the parking ample, and the desserts varied.

“It gets better and better...”
Reviewed July 19, 2009

From the last time we were here, it just got better. Of course we only go here on weekends but the food and service quality is hanging by ropes. Hip place for non snobbish noses. I always focus on the Crispy Calamares, Crispy Pata, Sinigang soup, pancit Bihon and the dessert corner-The Fried Banana is comparable to Fogo de Shao's.
