In a place called downtown, commercial center it is, you must find where to park. 8am to 530 pm store hours. Take out only for now so siopao are prepack and not hoanymore. Taste average but filling is many and the meatballs taste like homemade...kikiam.More

I told the seller not to put ketchup in the cheeseburger. But it came thru with it without any warning to us.

We were told the best siopao in Iloilo was Roberto’s so we took a taxi there around 4 in the afternoon. Unfortunately they were out of their Queen which was the most popular siopao so we opted for the King and the Jumbo instead. They...were really really good but I would have loved to have tried the Queen. Oh well, maybe next time.More

👍- Probably thr best siopao in the city! Love their queen siopao. Full of flavor, no need for sauce. Meatballs are also great! 👎- Restaurant space is cramped and needs more ventilation. Not ideal for dine in.

The Sio Pao is decent, not the best I've had but it is noteworthy. I'm not a fan of pork, so that's probably why. Everything else was incredibly greasy and poor quality. The fried chicken is boiled with skin on before battered and fried, given...it a terrible skin texture and taste. The pancit is full of fat pieces and liver and oil without much vegetables. The meatballs are low quality as well. Honestly, your local carinderia offers better quality.More

Having just eaten our big lunch. we briefly stopped here for our takeout siopaos. Costing 60 pesos each, the siopaos are huge, have lots of meats and slices of boiled eggs inside. Highly recommended to eat here or do take outs!

Roberto's is like our old Chinese resto at home --- serves the best comfort food. We got the queen sio pao, and four of us shared the gigantic treat. Loved the stuffing of pork, sausage, cheese, and more but it was the lumpiang shanghai which...got me hooked. I am still craving for it til now, almost a week since I had them. It was cheap at P14 a piece, and you can smell it right after I got out of the car in front of the resto. I brought some to the hotel and heated it in the microwave, and it retained its crunchiness. The stuffing is not over moist but the outside is quite crispy.More

Title says it all, it's quite an all right siopao but from time to time that I do remember Roberto's, I crave for their siopao. Don't really recommend dining in, especially if the place is totally busy. My aunt got snubbed by staff one time...when she attempted to order. Poor ventilation in the shop also. Tried the Queen siopao and it was very filling. I had to save it for later and that's saying something because I always finish my food in one go.More

We arrived here at 7am and was told that they open at 8am. So we waited at nearby fastfood restaurant for an hour and when we got back there was already a queue! I could see that people are buying by the dozen, and I...was in awe! Finally it was my turn and I bought a couple of King siopaos. Really delicious! Wanna come back again next time.More

The take out line was quite long , Ilonggos love the Siopaos, MeatBalls and Fried Lumpia to go ! No fuss sit anywhere you like and server will take your order and deliver it to your table and you pay at the cashier on your...way out ,just say your table number. The King siopao was hot and fluffy and delicious with pork and chicken and ham . The fire lumpia and meatballs didn’t disappoint , especially with the sauce! Worth the trip to old part of Iloilo . Reminded me of Havana, Cuba !More

😊 Happy tummy indeed! Delicious siopao and Chinese dishes! Hope they will have more variants in the near future, such as pure chicken or beef for those who don't eat pork.

Hands down the best Siopao in Iloilo. Every tourist should try their King and Queen siopao. Talagang Masarap and really tasty. Don't forget to get a stick of bola bola meatballs with sweet and sour sauce. Good job Roberto's.

no they don't have frozen siopao, but what we usually do is let it cool, refrigerate it and keep it in a cool dry place when traveling. it stays for 5 days more or less, when we bring it as pasalubong for friends

12 hours in the hot Philippines weather if left unrefrigerated and if you want optimum flavor. Otherwise refrigerate for up to 5 days.
