My Experience

My colleagues and I went here during the lunchtime. From the outside, it seems to be a simple and small restaurant but I was surprised when I got inside. I didn’t know that they are spacious and have a second floor. The first floor is for some small seating and is where the counter and cashiers are. On the second floor, you can find their dining area and buffet area. As someone who loves Chinese food, the sight of the dim sum spread excites me! Groups of people are starting to fill the restaurant during lunchtime so coming around 10-11 AM would be a great time to visit. For those who prefer a simpler option, they also offer their signature garlic rice with a choice of toppings. This way, you can fuel up for a busy day ahead with a satisfying and customizable breakfast.

I tried a little bit of everything — siomai, wanton, lauriat, xiao long bao, salmon belly, pork sautee, and a lot more. As expected from any Chinese cuisine, their foods are savory and tasty. My favorite was their maki and their vegetable rolls! If anything, their xiao long bao was just a bit dry. C&K Kitchen doesn’t just offer a delicious dining experience in Makati. For those seeking a different kind of adventure, they also have a larger branch in Malate. This branch offers unlimited hotpot, a communal dining experience where you cook your own food in a simmering pot at your table. To add to the fun, they also have KTV facilities, allowing you to enjoy a night of singing and delicious food with friends. With prices ranging from Php 599 to Php 699 per head, it’s a great option for a memorable and entertaining group outing.
