I can’t remember when was the last time me and my wife got really excited with a restaurant but definitely Chicos filled that gap, it’s so good at last I can promote a Filipino Fusion restaurant to my non Filipino friends who are asking me where to eat Filipino food. It was quite a drive from our place but it was all worth it, I heard of this restaurant a lot of times but never bothered as it was from a different suburb from ours. Filipino friends recommended it, an ex-colleague of mine also told me to try it (her brother is a chef there) and even Viva have rave reviews about it.
This place actually does fusion well! The dishes are nicely crafted, taste delicious, ingredients are fresh and to top it off, its aesthetically pleasing. Portions are big and the service is on point. Would recommend .
Came here for my birthday dinner. Probably one of the best restaurants around West Auckland. We had the cassava chips for entree, I was a bit disappointed though. I was expecting it to be similar to what you usually get in the Philippines, thin-cut and crispy. Instead we got cassava wedges. But the dipping sauce was amazing, so it’s all good. We both had the Crispy Pata for mains. Holy, I didn’t expect it to be a huge portion! Best. Crispy. Pata. I’ve ever had in a while. Salad was fresh, sauce was flavourful and crispy pata itself is crispy outside but fall of the bone inside. Good service and amazing food! Will definitely come back to try their desserts ❤️
