The chicken taste good. I don think they cook it per order because when my order arrived, it's already cold. They have this "pay as you order" rule since they have a lot of experience where the costumer does not pay after eating. The second...More

Grilled chicken thigh with rice. It's 100PHP for lunch. It's juicy. I personally don't like sweet taste for chicken though.

Coming here every so often because of their tasty and very affordable barbecued grilled chicken, my husband and myself always have that feeling of getting our moneys worth. Very affordable cost of their food, good service from their staff and nice ambiance.
