Native Pilipino food at its finest. We ordered the assortment of meats and it was very satisfying served with hot rice and all the dipping sauces. The portions were huge and it fed our entire family... I can't wait to go back again.

We were in San Francisco to renew a Philippine passport and our hotel was near this restaurant in walking distance so we went to try it out. Staff was super nice and helpful with classic Filipino energy. They had a big menu lots to choose from. When our food came out it blew our mind. Wow! The food was so delicious! It blew Gerrys Grill and Bario Fiesta out of the water. I recommend this restaurant to those who want to go get delicious Filipino food.

Always yummy food! Love coming here! Lots of choices to choose from! Halo halo is good! The chicharones is yum! I never tried adobong pusit, but it was surprisingly yum! The sinigang ng bangus was just the right amount sour. The binagoongan is yum! Good environment! Nice staff! Came here recently for Easter this year. Not too many crowds. Staff are every diligent with customers taking their temperature there before being seated. The tables are not too close together! Good covid-19 precautions.
