Excellent food and good ambiance for a filipino restaurant. Filipino and international celebrities even Manny Pacquio ate in this restaurant as we saw their pictures hanging on the wall. The fiesta mood is really nice like the "parol", ati-atihan, jeepey, et. We love the Kare kare, calamari, bicol express, mixed noodle, halo halo and puto bumbong. It has very nice, decent and polite servers.
I have not been in this place for about a year or so. Last time i was here they used to have servers who are very accommodating and friendly. Now, the servers are the owners and i believe the cook was the mother of the owners which i totally understand that business can be slow sometimes. The only problem is, knowing that these people are the owners you expect from them that they are the one who will set the bars high in giving good customer service. Tonight that was not the case, i was shocked to have experienced the WORST and HORRIBLE customer service ever!!!!
They should be thankful that we brought 20 customers with us to celebrate my sisters birthdays. I was not saying that we should be treated differently or should be treated like VIP's but at least i expect from them to try to have some courtesy by showing us that we are welcome to their business and if they could not give us good customer service at least act like it or have some decency to be nice to us since we are giving them business. I do understand that we all have our moods sometimes but come on you guys are running a restaurant don't take it on your customers if you are having a bad day!!! Being rude and unprofessional is the worst thing that you can do to your customers knowing that you are the owners of the business!!!
I hope the owners will realize that they are still in business because of customers like us. I wish them luck and hope that they will still stay in business. Piece of advice though, success does not come in just serving good food but also comes in providing good service to your customers!
Was craving for filipino food. After shopping at Americana and Glendale Galleria with my children, we decided to eat here and fortunately we were right. My husband and I liked the crispy pata and kare-kare while my children loved the barbeque and pancit. The good service was very much appreciated. It is a very modern Barrio Fiesta! Keep it up. It is not a fast-food restaurant liked the ambiance. Will definitely go back and bring my American friends to let them know that filipinos have good taste.
Over price, crappy food is what I would call this place.
I saw this on This Yellowpages website and wanted to try some Filipino food. When I get here, I see there is a Chinese Market across the street from here and there is a small pocket of Asian in Glendale in this area. I was a little bit wary because of what I have read in another website similar to Yellowpages, see the following link for details http://www.loc.gov/rr/frd/pdf-files/ChineseOrgCrime.pdf
I decided to go in anyway. And it seems the place is over price. Most of the items are quite expensive. But decided to try it anyway. The food was dry, cold and stale. And they were real stingy with the food. When I left, I was still hungry as there was hardly any food on the plate.
Don't waste your time going here. You will just waste your money while disgusting your taste buds without nourishing your stomach.
