Do not let the bad reviews stop you from trying 21 Restaurant. It almost got us—but we were so hungry to travel and find other places to eat.

Pros (+)

- The interior looks good, though some areas are dated thus need repainting if not renovation
- Spacious. It could accommodate a number of huge groups
- Food is great! At least the ones that we ordered. Kare-kare is satisfying, average price, could feed 2-3 people.
- Eggplant with shrimps is a surprise! My wife & I enjoyed it.

Cons (-)

- It took a little while for our orders to get served
- Robotic food attendants. They will take your order, serve your food, bring you the bill and that’s about it. No more, no less.

If you visited 21 a few years ago, you would be very impressed. Great food, great presentation, great service. Now, very disappointing. Food is no longer impressive, the taste is so so, presentation is hurried and amatuerish, service is blah, to be honest, Jollibee employees provide better service. This is a classic case of how the mighty has fallen. A big 'sayang'. Tsk tsk.

I went here with my wife, as we Always do whenever we're in town. I appreciated the quality of the food as much as the ambiance, although it was better 10 years ago. They expanded the number of tables and it's less elitist now, which it makes the restaurant more noisy now. At the end it remains a very good restaurant.

During my internship days we had our seminar there the place was nice and also the food. Everything was just delicious. Definitely would go back there <3

A local favorite that's simply tired. The restaurant interior needs upgrades, from the dust and water stained ceiling tiles, to the stained reused table cloths. Even worse, the kitchen can't seem to master the delivery of food to an entire table at the same time. While we were there, 3 tables (including ours) received courses 15 minutes apart. Seriously? When we asked them to bring them all at once, they looked astounded.

The food is just OK (at best). No doubt it would be better if it was still hot. The one redeeming factor is that the prices are VERY inexpensive. But you truly get what you pay for.
