I hosted my birthday party this past April at Casa Manila (group of 30!) I was esctastic to discover that they hosted a Sunday brunch buffet with their top menu selections. Mila was my contact and she was AMAZING. Food was absolutely delicious! I had several guests with a diverse array of dietary restrictions (including vegetarian and no pork). Every single guest complimented the selection and quality of food. We all left with fully satisfied bellies. I definitely recommend this place!

Authentic Filipino Food

Love this place, their Sour Soup Pork and Grilled Squid is to die for. $10-15 per dish.

I’m a Filipina, took my Jewish friend to try our traditional filipino food and I wasn’t disappointed. We had the buffet lunch style. My friend love the food most especially the caldareta, sweet and sour fish and the Buko Pandan for dessert. I was actually researching which Filipino restaurant I can take her that has the classy ambiance and style and CASA Manila was the one came in mind. I’ve been here on two occasions but that was few years ago. I love the service, our male server was very professional and knowledgeable and polite. I will definitely recommend this place again.

The atmosphere of Casa Manila is festive and is decorated in fun and interesting ways. The music was not appropriate for dining, however. I found it extremely distracting and stressful. The CD also constantly skipped, which is never pleasant to listen to. The Service was probably the worst part of our experience. It took us 20 minutes just to order drinks. One of our main dishes never even arrived! No one followed up on promises to bring water! The only reason we would come back to this restaurant was for the food, which was delicious and generously portioned. If this restaurant could 1) play more calming music - even if its Christmas music, 2) ensure that staff are properly trained on customer service, I would give this restaurant 5 stars across the board.

Doods served us with smiles and promptness! The food was excellent ! But the ladies washroom floor was wet, was inadequately kept! A little noisy as there was a drumroll when the boodle food is brought out, and singing a minute of birthday song to some of the celebrants. Overall it’s an experience!!!

The servers attitude is good but their service is really slow. Had an appointment at 12:30pm, did not get our food until 1pm. After eating, they asked us to move to another table for desserts... Deserts took a good 20 minutes, and their sparkler for bday did not work the first time. I dont mind paying higher for better service but.this place made me feel I got ripped off.

We had the Kamayan with our clients and it was wonderful! They were able to cater to my husband's vegetarian needs too. We loved it so much I went back with my friends the next day! Can't wait to go back again and again.

We have been here for the third time but the food was getting to be more oily as we visit! I thought I will give you another chance to improve but sorry to say it has been very disappointing! I took my sister and her family to let them taste the buffet but I expected that it will not meet their standards. I even mentioned about the guy from You Gotta Here came to viist your place so to persuade her to try to eat at your restaurant. But same response as mine, " I am not coming back here anymore". We even had to wait for the bill for 15 minutes. We just told them to split the bill for three and they find it so complicated that we have to wait for the bill longer! Please improve your standards not to shoo away some good customers! R.S-Novelero Definitely we are not coming back!

Great Service. The Lechon Kawqli Crispy pork belly was excellent and so was crispy fried chicken skin Highly recommend the calamansi mojitos. Rest of the food was ok. It was a great evening, but was bit pricey for that type of food. Still the Kamayan dinnee was a great experience.

OMG the best experience ever. I was very hesitant going because my 1st experience was horrible. The staff was very patient & explained everything as well as answered our many questions. The manager visited every table asking how everything was. We weren't rushed in any way. The vegan/vegetation options were fantastic! Thank you, will definitely recommend & come back.

Amazing service and the food was perfect! Better than we expected. Servers were all very helpful and accomodating and the owner even approached us a few times to talk. He was also very involved in running food and keeping up service throughout the night. We already started to recommend it to other family members and we are definitely returning! Great job!

Food is good, slightly disappointed that kamayan is with steamed rice and not garlic rice. Meat taste great. Items are on the pricey side, and not very pleased that tip was already added to the bill - before tax and when they bring you the payment terminal, they again ask if you would like to tip. Be careful of double tipping.

The food at Casa Manila was good however I had a ton of issues with my experience with the restaurant overall. So, prior to the reservation, I had booked online one week in advance for the premium seafood kamayan dinner. Then, called a couple of days later to confirm via telephone and to also provide my credit card information for the deposit. I specified garlic rice when confirming my reservation by phone. When we arrived on Sunday June 24, the people were confused with what we were having for dinner and sat us at a non-kamayan table and then moved us to a kamayan table. This was mildly annoying and I guess set the tone as to what we were to expect for the evening. Then, a waitress came by and reread my order, which she reiterated garlic rice and I confirmed. When the food came out, there was no garlic rice. When I asked about it, the waitress was like, oh I think you misunderstood, the garlic rice is an extra charge, and I was like.. I know!!! I asked for it!!! She was like, okay, we will bring it out on the side, but they never did. Also, expect really slow service. We were there for 2.5 hours. It was a combination of waiting for a long time for our food, and the wait time between the main meal and dessert was extra long. And finally, it was extremely difficult to find anyone working there to give us our bill. Then they had the audacity to charge me for the garlic rice that I never got. When I said that, the waiter's response was "are you sure!?" He eventually credited the $4 back and also said that he gave us an extra $1 back, so credited me back $5 total on a $250 bill. Additionally, I was unaware that there was going to be an automatic 20% tip for the dinner. I did not see it on their menu online, nor was I told on the telephone nor was I told when we arrived. Lastly, they just called me today, on June 25, 2018 to ask me if I had a reservation for today. I have no idea why they are so confused and disorganized. The food overall was very good. It was very unfortunate that we did not get the garlic rice because I've been told by others who've had kamayan that the garlic rice is really good. This was my first kamayan experience, and I enjoyed it, but I do not think I would come back to Casa Manila. I'd rather try another place.

I have been here in Canada for 15yrs, so far this is the best Filipino food I have tried. Everything was prepared fast and very tasty. Crispy pork belly was spectacularly delicious, ginataang gulay na kalabasa, and laing were both favorites among my friends. Sisig was crispy and gone in an instant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
