The first and only time we ever dined at this Giigan's branch was in 2015 when they were just months old. Hubby wanted grilled food for dinner so we headed here. There was a waiting list to be seated inside the restaurant. There were vacant tables outside and the mall's aircon was cooler than that of Giligan's so we agreed to eat outside.

On the table
🔹Sizzling Beef in Sinigang Gravy - beef was fried real hard and some pieces were very tough to chew. The veggies were crunchy. The sauce was sour and sweet. Skip this dish.
🔹Chicken Yakitori - soft and juicy chicken fillets with a great tasting peppery marinade
🔹Miki Bihon Guisado - nothing special
🔹Grilled Pusit - it had a weird after taste that made us question if it was fresh
🔹Bulalo, complimentary soup - lacked flavor
🔹Orange Juice - which turned out to be Pineapple Orange Juice that tasted like Del Monte. They didn't bother to inform us nor did they apologize when we pointed it out.

Since we were seated outside, it was hard to get the servers attention. It took a while before the service water we requested arrived. I think we asked 3 times. The bill took some time to get to us too.

We weren't satisfied with the food and the service. I highly doubt we're ever coming back.

Wala bang 0?

Anyare Giligan's?

No more baked oysters and baked mussels.

We ordered cheesesticks, bale, 2nd take na nila yan. Yung una, durog na durog na kapiranggot lang. Yung nasa pic, yan yung pinalit nila, yan na yung BEST na kaya nila. Nakakain na kami sa ibang branch ng Giligan's pero hindi ganyan.

Sobrang nakakadisappoint.

Staff were attentive naman, nakakadisappoint lang yung food.

1. I used to see this restaurant when I lived in Sta. Rosa, Laguna for a time but was hesitant to try it because I thought it would be pricey. It was located kasi at Nuvali, which is quite an upscale area.

2. But when we found out that Giligan's now has a branch in SM City Taytay, we finally decided to try it out.

3. As I expected, much of their fare was pricey, but we were delighted to discover that it also has more affordable meals, like the P99 rice all you can meal. We ordered the chicken rice meal -- four chicken wings to be specific.

4. The chickens were cooked to perfection (e.g. walang dugo, which is of course a turn-off), and were quite big.

5. The chop suey was simple -- wala gaanong sahog, no chicken, no pork, just something like thin slices of chicken balls (for me ha, haha) -- but the taste was clean and delicious. The vegetables were crunchy.

6. The orders took quite long, but we understand that because it's not a fast food restaurant. We were served with water during our wait. If you want your food right away, go to a fast food joint instead. But the wait was worth it.

7. Courteous and attentive staff. 128522

We were surprised to know that this place was 2 months old already. I guess we haven't been to this part of the mall for some time.

On the table
Pork Sisig - disappointed that it wasn't as good as we remembered. It lacked seasoning and some parts were too hard and makunat to eat.
Sweet and Spicy Squid - it was just so so
Miki Bihon - tasteless and we took most of it home. We figured we could add seasoning anyway.

I don't think we'll be eating here again anytime soon.

*cute interiors
**seems like the aircon wasn't working and doors were left open
***acoustics was really bad, the chatter of neighboring tables was quite annoying
