A typical Chinese cuisine lauriat, very cheap compare to other competitors around the metro specially with hotel dining. Could be more creative on ways to cook them. Flavor-wise, typical. Pocket-wise-10 hands down!

I feel guilty not writing about this restaurant which I have patronized for years. I think it is the best Chinese restaurant in the oldest Chinatown in the world. That says a lot. Try their fishhead, bok choy, duck, hot and sour soup. Everything is so good that you will have to keep coming back to try all the dishes.

Having eaten the President Grand Restaurant in Binondo for the first time makes my visit during the 2017 Chinese New Year more memorable and worth remembering. Their foods are mouth watering and very deleciously prepared.

We were recommended this restaurant by several friends and the hotel we stayed at. It's a nice place, cool, large, & clean. But the food didn't taste amazing, just average. Maybe it's just the particular foods we ordered, an assortment, chicken, garlic rice, pansit, fish, none stood out. I actually ordered the waiter's recommendation which was roasted chicken, but they... More

Certainly, President has been around for generations. Took the team out and had the braised duck, steamed Lapu Lapu, Westlake Beef Soup, Yang Chow Fried Rice, Clams and Chinese veggie. On the whole, food was acceptable and priced very, very reasonably. By acceptable - not to the levels of Gloria Maris, Annapolis restos, Century and others but in the Ongpin... More

Getting there is a bit stressful due to the traffic and the narrow roads, best to bring a driver or ride a uber so you need not worry about parking. It is located on Ongpin St.(The heart of Chinatown). Be prepared, Chinatown is cramped and dirty. Lots of small shops of wares, clothes and ofcourse restaurants. That’s the charm of... More
