Maybe my taste for Chinese food is spoiled by having eaten local versions from places like San Francisco, London, Madrid, Budapest, Cape Town, Mumbai, Sydney, Port Moresby etc... but... you knew there was a but.... the food in Jasmine didnt wow me. I expected a wow and all I got was a fizzle. The duck was ok, the pork was less than ok... I was just expecting more and it never met my expectations. The place was empty as well. I have tried this place on two occassions, on my next trip to Manila I will not repeat my visit to Jasmine there are a lot more restaurants in the Greenbelts to try or try again. I am giving it Average but its right there very close to poor but just above it, barely.

My wife and I have eaten lunch at "Jasmine" on many occasions. Every time we eat there we have a very enjoyable meal. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday they have Yum Cha or Dim Sum which is the best we have eaten anywhere. On the other days we ask what is the special of that day and having this we are never disappointed. Overall I rate this a very good restaurant and the service is excellent.

My friends and I sometimes go to Hongkong , a 2 hour flight away just for good Cantonese cooking. Dimsum is one of these. With the offering from Jazmine, there is now no more reason to fly to Hongkong. They make excellent Dimsum especially during Sundays when they roll out the steaming carts of various types of Dimsum. Plus you get excellent service from all the attentive staff in a pleasant place with plenty of ambiance. The cost for two people comes to about P 1500/couple or about US$ 35. Seems a bit much by Manila standards but it sure is a lot cheaper than flying to Hongkong.
My wife has high praises for the place itself and lingers with her house tea just to savor it. Of course the excellent service makes the visit worthwhile.
