Real Customer Reviews at Kuya J Restaurant - SM Cubao:

Remee Mariae Sorreda20:11 07/17/23
Twas the worst restaurant I have ever been. They served our chopseuy with rotten chicken. The cucumber juice was bland and not refreshing, the mango gulaman was too sweet! The crews were rude. We kept following up our order however they kept on ignoring us

MRS simpliciano06:16 07/12/23
Absurd price... Almost 700pesos for a kare kare in a small microwavable container. Doesn't even taste special. Better off taking out from barrio fiesta. Price is not worth the food. Crispy bagnet is also nothing special. 300 pesos for a few pieces of pork that looks like burnt bacon

Renato Mandocdoc10:45 03/31/23
Fried bangus and the sinigang are very good.Halo halo not available

Jane glaiza Fineza14:04 03/06/23
Kuya J what happened to the quantity of your food? Portion is too small. I ordered chicken bicol express pero how come puree lang sya? The sauce is delicious thou pero for the price of 309 cannot believe na eto lang ,wala man lang bits of chicken meat

Maville Cruzado08:25 03/01/23
Spoiled corn in Bulalo. They replace it but it's not fresh. It taste bland and old. Bulalo has more beef fats than meat and very little vegetable. Lastly, it serves warm, not hot.We ordered Kuya J Chicken, they didn't give us gravy or sauce.Poor service.Overall, disappointed. Not satisfied.

Engelbert Tabones12:05 02/26/23
This is our first time; we finally gave it a try, and we were very impressed. The food was very good, and the service was excellent. This branch is clean and well organized.Outstanding dishes for me were the Roast Chicken and Sinigang na Bangus.Their free appetizers are even good.

Charles21:01 11/19/22
the place is located near the bus terminals SM mall Cubao. i believe this is a well known restaurant Kuya J. I ordered salo salo crispy pata for 999php set of rice pork crispy pata ang vegetable chopsuey. and a pitcher ice tea for 180php. cook just right to a crispy skin it crackles when you bite into it. the fatty meat near the skin melts in your mouth! however the pata is little bit oversalted for me. vegetables chopsuey is too raw for my liking the garlic rice ok. verdict is a 3 out of 5

CeeJay Manganop07:09 01/24/21
This is my 2nd time to eat at Kuya J, but in different location. I could say that their foods is excellent, a little bit sad because my favorite grilled scallops is not available that day. They have a salo salo meals, we order the one with crispy pata, it comes with a 4 rice, ensaladang talong, pancit and lumpia. All was good and yummy. Also their halo halo is good. A well recommended restaurant.

Michael Norris01:15 06/16/23
Haven't been to Gerry's Grill Ali Mall for 5 yes, before the COVID lockdown. Since then they have had a tasteful renovation.Went there last Friday for dinner. They were busy, but only had to wait 5 minutes for a tableThe staff worked hard to meet all their customer needs. They did it professionally and respectfully.Food service was quick, given how busy they were on Friday night. Food was delicious. Not big dishes, but average to small servings.In summary, definitely worth a visit. Your tastebuds & appetite will thank you for it!

Lunar (GAPH)12:51 02/17/23

The food serving was small and the kare kare had a little bit of odd taste sa meat. The rest was good.

Peter john Culili22:33 01/04/23
Service was kind of slow as for may experience but the food is good

nyca jemina12:41 11/01/22
Staffs were accommodating. Food served were delicious. I loved that I didn't have to ask the waiter to refill my bottomless glass, she took initiative to refill it. I also appreciate the little things like asking us how was the food.👌👌👌

It was good. Just prepare to wait for around 20 to 30 minutes. The food was aesthetically presented.

Romeo Estocado14:30 12/08/22
slightly good ambience and wide variety of seafood available. I love the restaurant. Its more expensive 😝 and not so good interior need proper maintenance or renovation.

Dits05:20 08/21/22
We ordered the Elyu set and it was soo good! Everything on the set was delicious and right on the spot for the pinoy taste. I loved their sisig, dinengdeng and pancit. Big servings for 2-3 persons. We'll definitely go back with my family soon.

Real Customer Reviews at Romantic Baboy - Ali Mall:

Kent Rodriguez06:28 08/01/23
Meat is premium and the cheese. We love it so much. Though not all branches are the same. Ali Mall branch is one of the best Romantic baboy.

Regina Goson01:08 07/19/23
Celebrating the graduation of my daughter. Love the food and ambiance.

Ann Christian Santander04:28 07/14/23
Given that food is good, however the staffs are in control of your orders. I don't understand why we are sharing 1 set of order and yet I am paying for 3 people. They won't give you 3 sets of side dishes unless you asked them to and yet it's hard to get them when you finished your meats and other dishes. We are fully aware of "No left overs" because it's posted on the smoke extractor. They don't even asked us if we wanna go for 499, 599, or 899, they will just ask you to choose what are the meats we wanna have and just 3 types of it then we can get another 3 after finishing it until I realized that "okay?" we had the price of 599 and I felt like paying that amount is not really that worth it. We are paying adults of 3 and feels like I'm getting the service of the amount that is lower than that. It's just lunch time around 11am to 12nn and yet servers are not in their 100% to serve you well. I think I'm not going to recommend this to my friends and family. I'm good with trying to dine there once.

Mary Grace Navarro06:44 07/10/23
I had fun dining here with my bestie. Definitely recommended if you want better service and food. It’s better than Samgyup Salamat to be honest. ✌️(opinion ko lang to sis)

darker_grey idica09:46 05/19/23
The crews are very attentive and friendly, but during our last visit, ordering some of the default sides on the table like rice were not consistent. We had to follow up once or twice before we get our next bowls. But other than that, everything is great. Food is great, ambiance and worth the money. Just don't get the scallops as they just end up being fried with cheese which does not taste good compares to baked scallops. I recommend their beef bulgogi and chicken bulgogi. Even their steak cut so long as you know how you want your steak cooked on the grill.

Mary Eleizalyn Afroilan07:31 05/02/23
Staff are very accomodating. Great service. Tasty side dishes.

jue kazama12:57 10/01/22
My team enjoyed our eat out...Place is jam packed when we came , good thing my agent was able to make reservations.Staff os not that friendly, well given that prolly they are already exhausted due to the volume of people dining in.

Nicole Arojado05:59 08/06/22
meal quality was great and service was fast. we constantly asked for refills and crew was fast to provide, even when the place started filling up (since we came in when they opened)recommended to try all their plain meat options, especially the smoked samgyupsal and the cheesy scallop to add more flavor to your cheesy meal. pity they didn't have the smoked duck, LA galbi, and the other special plates to try, but it was still a good and filling dining experience for 549.

Aldrin Panes21:43 02/27/22
The restaurant now is at its full capacity when dining in due to the ease of health protocols. They still requires vaccine card when dining in though. The serving is very fast and the foods are delicious. There are many side dishes. Kudos to their crew for being nice and serving the food very fast.Overall, had a very nice experience.

You might as well cook at home and drizzle ypur food with knorr seasoning YUKKK and its already a restaurant YUKK Im an oyster lover the oysters here arent fresh.This should be called Knorr seasoning Restaurant. LOL

Emmanuel Cruz19:01 05/04/23

ClanMaster11:05 03/12/23
Waitresses taking their Breaktime all at the same time waited for my Bill to be taken but no one came. i took my payment to the cashier and noticed that the Cashier is also on Break. I felt so un welcome when the cashier took my bill she looked so dissapointed felt like i disturbed their chit chat with their non customer guest while taking their Breaktime and i think thay Guy is a personal Guest no Business related. I am a regular customer for years and from branch in Greenhills i told the cashier/waitress this will be reported to you superiors, "She replied go ahead it's your choice". Because of this i will never go back to this establishment we use to love this place but since they have this staffs that behave that they own this place No way for my Buddies and Business partners or any means of going back! i will never forget my experience with that Chubby waitress/Cashier

Willo w12:14 02/09/23
Garlic Cheese Oysters were delicious! We had our order picked up & delivered at home & the oysters were still succulent & of good size. Can’t beat the price either.I hope the quality of the dish & its value for money will be the same the next time I order again.

Withname Fonacier19:15 12/28/22

Real Customer Reviews at Banapple:

Jho Celero02:38 04/14/23
Came on a lazy, rainy Thursday afternoon. But the staff were not attentive given that they're not busy. One order was not served, and had to go to the counter to get hot water though it was requested in advance. We had their carrot cake and pineapple and ham empanada which tasted superb though .

Aireen07:24 03/20/23
been a fan of Banapple since they had their branch here in Araneta. However, I would say that there was a change with the taste of their food. Yes, the serving size is there, but its not satisfying as before.Staffs were accommodating and friendly. she was able to attend to our request and our food was served at a reasonable time.place was clean and well-maintained.

Jhino Dela Cruz09:54 03/10/23
Not a good branch of Banapple for me.Hicory ribs was bland and meat is so hard to eat, it taste like its been pre-heated from yesterday.

Withname Fonacier06:10 05/08/22
Amazing foods and they serve big portions so their foods are good for sharing already. A bit pricey but worth it. The place is clean, you can pay by card and staffs are attentive and nice. The restroom is also clean.

John Badawi00:42 03/02/22
The banofee cake did not disappoint. I love that it was not overwhelmingly sweet. The buttermilk and beef tapa are both delicious also. Serving is generous. The place has an open/outdoor space which is a good thing if you are COVID paranoid and avoiding closed spaces. Customer service was okay.

Arvyne Nathaniel Tolentino20:16 12/12/21
Their food tastes really good! They also serve big portions which is satisfying for the price you'll pay.Overall I am always impressed with their service and food.I would just suggest to change the tables cause it's not convenient and it's a little shaky and small to eat with.Still, I highly recommend going here.

Buddy's Restaurant infrastructure of Novotel Araneta.this was specifically July 14th supper time.We were on vacation with family. we went back and forth to this restaurant as we heard the food was great. one time we were there, my sister in law asked for a hot tea. the girl in the cash said they don't have. but we ordered the same thing the day before. and so she went to the back, she came back and gave the same thing. so my sister in law asked again as my mother in law can't drink cold. so she took and went back again but hesitantly. when she came back she had the hot tea but there was like a bubble on top, which we thought it's a spit. so my mother in law got disgusted and throw it. we should have taken a picture but she threw right away. and what so obvious is everyone were looking at us.this is unacceptable...so if they're upset with a customer they will just spit on your food!!!!

Service is good, the servers even the guard are quite perceptive and helpful. Will definitely visit it again.

John Charlon Fajardo13:15 01/17/20
Great food and you have so many choices that it's hard to order food from the menu. The food taste authentic and serve in a manner appealing to the eyes. The ambiance of the place reminisce the time in an old barrio fiesta. The ambiance makes you want to eat a lot more...

Lizandra Marie Espiña01:10 01/28/23
It's a cool place to hangout with friends on a Friday or Saturday night (or both) after work. They close around 12mn. I like the ambiance. It's cool, and the place is well lit with pretty warm lights. It's like a hidden gem in Cubao, and I have a special favorite to get donuts from now too.PS. For the restroom/comfort room tho, you need to pay P5 every time.

keziah ortigas08:30 01/12/23
Looks smaller than the pictures but there is a lot of things to do. Definitely a place to go to if you are a big fan of vintage art and stuff.There are a lot of vinyls for sale as well as food and drinks. It's great for a chill night with friends and family.

Claren07:36 11/25/22
Perfect place to chill with friends during the day and drink at night. The place feels like it was lifted off from a movie due to its retro-ish beauty. People who love to explore might like the restaurants, stores and cafes here.There are different stores selling vintage items and vinyl records. Some cafes and restaurants are more modern than others. They also offer different types of cuisine from every restaurant.

Anna Romanowska07:52 02/04/23
We booked a private tour while stopped in Manila. I had asked our guide to take us to an authentic favourite "locals" restaurant. We did not want touristy food. While we have been to pig roasts in Canada, this was something all together different and AWESOME! Best pork ever, and perfectly crispy skin. we had 3 dishes. chopped pork with crispy skin (supper yummy), Pork with peppers (spicy ones) with coconut

Jenny Fernandez07:19 01/26/23
Very good price and service. There's pork lechon with 3 Pork Bbq's and fresh lumpia and 2 soda.Additional one fresh lumpia and paid 1200 pesos. Wow !!

Matthew Lee18:45 10/27/21
I love the whole pig roast and here in the Philippines, they pack it full of aromatics, heavily seasoned then slow roasted. One like myself will easily mop up 1 to 2 kilos of this stuff on its own in one seating. At the same time knock back a couple bottles of the local San Mig Lite. Perfect!! Lydias makes some of the best Lechon in Manila and I'll always make a point to bring a couple more kilos back with me on my flights home.

Sapat Lang00:26 05/14/19
Parking is limited. Prices are on the higher end. Servings are small. Waiters are attentive. Good food. Clean and well maintained. Very convenient from house. Only less than 1 mile at the corner of sct reyes and roces. Good casual eating for families, friends and small groups.

Unfortunately, this is the Only McDonald's near my workplace. But yeay! We still have McDonald's Nearby to dine in. 😁✅️ Maya and Gcash Payment Accepted✅️ Generous in providing condimentsOne thing that needs to provide focus on is the Utensils. Some of the utensils are not washed properly. It still have dried residue and we don't want that. Of course we are avoiding our food to be contaminated.This store has one Restroom. You should also bring your own Wipes and Tissue for your own hygiene needs.

Danny Sanchez07:59 06/23/23
Service was great which is something that you expect from the 2nd McDonald's store to open in the country. I was overwhelmed by their extensive use of technology as I don't reside in the big city anymore. I'm glad they have crew who are very helpful to people who are not technically savvy like me.

Aldrin Vergara22:40 04/06/23
The service crew is very fast. Our orders always served in a timely manner. The only cons is the number of people since it's located in the very busy area.

worst experience I have with mcdo went all the way to this branch to order the cheese dunk burger was excited about it and have it ordered for take out and very disappointed when I get home and checked that there is no cheese dunk sauce on the order. Ruined my mood. Next time checked the order first before handling it to customers, we trust you with our orders and we pay you with our order only to be given kulang-kulang na orders my excitement to try this trending food just went to disappointment and frustrations!

Renz Mercado01:46 02/22/23

Bottom has pretty architecture and the lights look great at nighttime, during daytime the lights are a touch too dim for my liking and it may get warm.Service is stellar as always.Second floor has a decent view of Araneta center and is always nice and cold.

The place is spacious though crowded on weekdays which is understandable. The staff is friendly and their order kiosks are functional. I just hope they adjust the AC kasi mainit if maraming tao.Their comfort room is unsanitary and smells bad :(( Expect a slow service when you eat out on the 2nd floor.Friendly tip: Let's do each other a favor and clean as we go.

Definitely the perfect place to visit if you crave or wanting to try authentic Zambasulta cuisine. I loved their Chicken Pianggang paired with Turmeric Rice. I also enjoyed their Mango-Cocoroons. Will definitely go back and try their other items.

I was blown away when I tried Southern Mindanao food. It was new, complex and delicious!This is a must when visiting Manila.Tiyula itum was so good, a very hearty soup!Eating in the restaurant made me realize how diverse Filipino food is.

ZAMBASULTA (Zamboanga-Sulu-Tawi Tawi) flavors in this southern mindanao based cuisine resto in Tomas Morato, Quezon City.Very nice ambience and very attentive chef and staff.Love their food as well - especially the Pianggang Manok - which is cooked with burnt coconut milk, giving it a gabi leaves like texture.The Eggplant Moussaka is melt in your mouth. And the Beef Kurma is good as well. And the Turmeric Rice, is perfect.The cocoroons are also exquisitely done, paired with coffee is a heavenly way to end the dinner.Try it and patronize our own country's rich selection of food and culture down south in this nice resto!👍👍👍👍👍

The event that we scheduled in April 2023 went really well. We were impressed by the set up, the food, the staff, and the decorations, specially Jose Miguel, who was there checking on the progress and adjusting if needed to the specific situation.We found Jose Miguel to be professional, courteous, involved in making the event a success.I would recommend the place for an intimate gathering and take advantage of the photogenic areas around the restaurant.

It was such a breath of fresh. We have enjoyed all the dishes. Also, learned a lot of things about the cuisine and culture of the South.Pianggang Manok, Deep Fried Pampano in Sambal, Knicker Iced Treat & Coffee are a must try!

Absolutely great food! It's the first time I've tasted Mindanaoan food (ZamBaSulTa specifically) and it tasted better than what I imagined going into it. I have recommended this place already to several people and personally, I'm planning to go back some time to taste more of the place's menu.

Met up with a high school friend and his family here. Chose this place because we had no time during our vacation to travel to Mindanao so we fortunately had this place to make up for it. We booked our reservations and they mentioned what would not be available on the menu beforehand. Their service was quick and we had some lychee water served with our meal. Our favorites were the turmeric rice, Tiyula Itum (synonymous to Bulalo) and the Beef Satti. If you are not sure what to order, the Dulang is their huge ‘sampler’ platter of everything on their menu. There were Batik fabrics on sale for 600 and 2000 pesos. They also had Sulu Coffee available. The place is big enough to seat about 40 people (on the first floor). They had parking for about 3 cars.

Palm grill , lovely little restaurant. maybe the only one serving authentic Zamboanga region food around / close to Manila.Ordered black soup 1 serving good enough for two, don't miss the flambe ing of the marrow.main course ordered Pianggang manok-dominant coconut flavour with other flavours, very unlike other coconut sauce dishes, does not overwhelm.Food excellent, service excellent. don't know if it gets crowded can they manage, I was asked about dessert and steward never returned so the crowd managing comment.Enjoyed food with very chilled San Miguel.was explained about the food , and was checked if all was OK.Must try.

This restaurant serves southern mindanao cuisine particularly from the Zamboanga area. Food actually tasted authentic and gave me a sense of nostalgia as I had these food when I stayed for a year in Zamboanga City more than a decade ago. Food , ambiance, staff are all great, serving portion is small though. Spent around 1.5k for two.
