I just came back from this place. I was greeted by friendly woman (I think the owner), a girl at the counter and showed me to the back garden. I was impressed by the place UNTIL....My order took over 30 minutes to get to my table! I got my drink and appetizer, lumpiang sariwa then more people came. I was the first one there, and my food came so late. It wasn't just the sit down lunch people that waited, but the take out were long wait! They have 2 wait staff and the owners, still can't get organized and the food took forever! I was not hungry anymore after my main dish got there. I had the lumpiang sariwa like I said, but it wasn't that great, too much garlic for my taste (my mom's is better). My main dish (special) the hamonado served with thin sliced tomato and what appears to be deep fried snow pea? I was confused! Anyway, I think the cook took too long slicing those thin sliced tomatoes that's why the costumers waited for so long. One costumer mentioned why it was taking too long and the lady almost insulted the costumer! I don't think I will bring my friends here...too bad, I'm always in support of filipino restaurants, but almost 45 minutes to wait for food is not good!

Arrived at the last minute, the very friendly owner insisted that it wasn't an issue. Menu was extensive and mouthwatering. Ordered the pork adobo which as a previous reviewer mentioned was excellent, particularly the sauce which they used which had been created from scratch. The portion was also large enough that I didn't have to order anything else (I was dining on my own). The atmosphere inside was warm and inviting, and added up to a fantastic dining experience. Their only issue is that they currently lack a liquor license but are currently applying for one. A delicious, pleasant, unpretentious option for the neighborhood, and a really good value for money as well - bring your friends!

This is a cute smallish restaurant with outdoor garden eating space. I had the pork adobo (my standard order at filipine restaurants) - it was delicious. My friend had pancit (noodle dish) - it was excellent (I'm not usually a pancit fan). We split the mushrooms - meh-- stir fried with garlic but from a can. The melon drink is refreshing. The menu is really extensive -- I'm looking forward to going back with friends so that I can try their food (because I'll be ordering adobo, again). The servers are nice / willing to explain the menu and make recommendations.
