Compared to other restaurants that showcase Filipino culture, this place has a merrier vibe because it has a mix of traditional and modern songs. The performers are energetic and seems like they really had fun performing which is why the customers are also game to...participate at some parts of the performance. They sing, they dance, they do comedy and impromptu cooking! This place is a must visit for people visiting the Philippines. Only downside is the cramped space. Really hard to walk when going outside the dining area especially during performances where people block the path to take videos and pictures.More

What sets this place apart from other restaurants is THE ENTERTAINMENT!!! It caters to the Filipino heart. All of the performances were EXCELLENT!! Food is TASTY, good serving portions and reasonably priced. We loved the tawilis among others. Our bill totalled Php 4500 already inclusive...of 10% SC. Not bad for a group of 7, we even had take home some leftover bulalo, fried calamares, fried chicken, and also some seafood from the seafood platter we ordered. (We left them additional Php 500 service tip plus Php 2000 tip for the performance, but hey, it's just us...you do not have to if you do not like feel doing it) Bottomline, it really is such a WONDERFUL place to dine in. It would also be perfect for families with balikbayans.More

We have been there twice recently. This place is a must when you visit Manila. Must make reservations, both times it was full. It is totally amazing, because the food is so good, the price is so right and the entertainment is really from the...staff. We were there with other Hotel GM's, including myself 3, as well as 1 more hospitality expert and all of us were amazingly surprised. We Love it.More

I recently had the pleasure of dining at The Singing Cooks & Waiters. The service there is amazing while the food itself clearly had the intent of offering delectable options in a presentable way in a entertaining setting and absolutely delivered. First, the food. Each...customer is offered complimentary beef broth soup, we then were presented with a series of dishes. From their famous crispy pata, their delicious sinigang, coconut juice in an actual coconut, to their impressive halo halo (also in a coconut), every dish we tried was both beautifully prepared and delicious. I just wish I could name them all but everything we had was amazing. Entertainment - Immediately, I was impressed with their energy. The singing cooks and waiters are exceptionally enthusiastic with every rendition. They performed holiday, American, and traditional Filipino songs while also dancing and changing outfits between performances. They can all sing very well and interact with the crowd to really bring a festive environment to the dining experience. It’s a great place to celebrate an event or even just have a fun time out. They have a separate floor that is just the restaurant for customers looking to enjoy their delicious menu but I recommend the entertainment dining option as this group really works hard to make it a memorable experience. I was fortunate to meet the owner Love who like her name suggests, is just the sweetest person. She truly cares about this restaurant. She strives hard for her restaurant to make inspiring dishes and wants every customer to have a great time. As I understand it, they continue to cultivate these performers with constant training to make sure every performance is just as great as the last. I would absolutely come back the next time I’m in Manila and will bring a group as I know they will have a great time. Thank you for an amazing experience!More

Want to listen to variety of music while having lunch or dinner? Then visit the Singing Cooks and Waiters Restaurant in Roxas Boulevard, Definitely you would be entertained by the beautiful voices of servers and chefs. You can even request a song from them.There is...a variety of food to choose from, you can have the healthy one if you prefer it. Prices are just ok, and there are servings which are meant for sharing. This restaurant to all types of customers including families with kids. There are parking space outside but get ready for a fee because the one which manages the parking area is the local government and not the restaurant. the place is accessible by all means of transport public or private.More

The singing cooks and waiters can sing Filipino songs, Chinese songs and Japanese songs. They will dance as they sing. They can sing classics as well as pop. Quite amusing. The Filipino dishes are good. The roast pork knuckles were also good. The desert is...a bit too sweet. Price is about 800 peso per head including beer.More

Mediocre food when dining solo. Good energy and entertainment. Server forgot about me after reseating me at a table where I could see the entertainment. Great place for groups. Not so much for a solo. Had to ask someone different for everything—even the bill
