A good place to get out the noise and dust of the Ortigas area. Cafe and small restaurant are good for a relaxing meal. for example Wild Flour.

It is a mall with no exciting features. I am not into art and literature places, they usually hang art paintings inside. Art lovers can appreciate the interior of the Podium. As for me, when you say shopping malls, it should have many stores or booths surrounding the place. The Podium have stores but limited, which also mean that their... More

The Podium is a step up in class from the other nearby large malls. They don't have a massive collection of outlets, but make up for it with a nice and roomy layout. The restaurants on the ground floor do have very little space inside, but it's well worth the trouble to get one as the noise level drops noticeably.

My husband and I saw Podium rise from the ground literally. We we're already a regular when it was but a basement parking. And as it rose, we fell so inlove with the place automatically. It exudes of class and sophistication, during it's earl years a free concert was always given at the atrium. We we're lucky enough to watch... More

This was a belated birthday celebration of my son and nephew which happened last October 29, 2016. To celebrate this happy occasion I called up Yakimix to make a reservation and requested for a table of nine to 10 pax. There was a mix up with my reservation so I was advised to go there earlier to be first in... More

This mall sits directly across from the hotel I am staying at for 5 weeks. Love the options! They have a wonderful spa, great breakfast options, and a surprisingly nice two screen theater!

unlike the nearby SM Megamall and Robinsons Galleria, The Podium is a (relatively) quieter mall with less people, but don't look for a budget meal or purchase here. (the Shangri-la Mall shares the same high-end ambience as The Podium, but is farther from most of the offices in the Ortigas Center, make it less accessible by foot.) lots of signature... More
