“For a full on Chinese food experience in Binondo”

President Tea House
Ranked #5 of 55 Coffee & Tea in Manila
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 27, 2017

Taken here by a local friend who works close by, after telling them I had a craving for Dim Sum. If you happen to be here and you love Chinese food. Do yourself a favor and try out this place. You are in the middle of the world oldest Chinatown and you'll have a hard time finding a more authentic Chinese food experience. Or maybe I should say Hong Kong style experience, because that's exactly what this place reminded me of. It was just like those local Hong Kong small tea houses you can still find hidden away in Kowloon or the NT. The food was all great. Every single item we tried was fantastic.

Now this place can be tricky to find and definitely you'll need to have a way to park or be on foot. Parking is not easy to find around here. Service was efficient and helpful. Happy to have been here.

Went here with the family last December and it was days after my sister came home from France. Food was delicious , staff was courteous , prices? make sure to bring at least 1k if you are a family of 4 to enjoy their selections. Parking is kinda challenging though as since its inside Ongpin , you would need to find the closest parking space near the establishment.

Ate here with friends on a Sunday... the traffic was terrible in Chinatown that time. We had to walk or else we will eat at a more later time.
It was a good choice to eat here after the brief walk. We ordered the standards - pork asado, sweet and sour fish, mixed vegetables, veggie lumpia, tofu with brown sauce and Yang Chow fried rice. Everything was delish!
Their coffee too is good... had a great time !
Place is comfortable and staff very helpful. Prices are just right. Highly recommended

Surprising steamed bright yellow buns - small, neat, perfectly rounded and intriguing. Filled with sweet, salted egg custard, it's a delightful snack. Take care, it's hot! Mango sago was refreshing and cool.
