“Binondo Food Trip”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

On our last Chinatown food trip, this was where we had lunch. The restaurant is famous for its Chinese-style fried chicken, pancit canton, oyster cake, and a many others. They also offer pre-set meals which consist of a variety of dishes so you will be able to sample their different specialties in one seating. Already a established institution for decades, this is one stop you shouldn't miss when in Chinatown.

“Authentic Chinese food”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

I was looking for an authentic chinese food in Manila and I my cousin has recommended this one. OMG this is really worth a try! The fresh lumpia and their rellenong hipon is to die for! The sincerity fried rice is a meal in itself. Their service tea is a good appetizer in itself. Best of all, it is your money's worth.

“Love the chicken!”
Reviewed 18 August 2013 via mobile

Crunchy and flavory fried chicken. Super enjoyed it! We also dined at their new location in Lucky Chinatown which is a better locatipn and more accessible than their other branch.

Among the dishes we ordered (corn soup, chami, fresh lumpia, fried chicken and sweet and sour fillet) my ultimate fave are the fried chicken and fresh lumpia.

“Great food.”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

The best chinese style fried chicken I have ever tasted. Even if it is cold, the chicken is still tender and juicy. The taste goes inside the meat while the outer part of the chicken is crispy but not dry. It is best eaten with their fried rice...but make sure to order one whole chicken. Do not forget to try their Kikiam, it is so meaty and delicious. Also their oyster cake is the best.

“Not as good as advertised”
Reviewed 29 December 2012

My girlfriend and I went to Sincerity after hearing many good reviews about it. The fried chicken was good but we've had far better before, myself especially in Korea. The Sincerity rice we ordered had a bland taste though the vegetables with beef was OK. Worst of all was the service. The food took too long to get to us and then the waiter forgot to give us our bill after we'd been waiting a long time. Don't believe the hype, the chicken at Bon Chon is better than this.
