Seldom do I give 1 star for a review but I was just really disappointed with the waiter who served our table. He was kind of rude in taking our order and you know that feeling when a waiter is kind of looking down on your capability to afford their menu price.128544 Hahampasin ko sana nang isang libong mamiso. Hahaha..

I was expecting great things from this resto because of its good review. After how the waiter served us I was already in a bad mood. So we just order a simple meal thinking it might save this review.

128544Curry Laksa - Didn't like it. Need to add more coconut milk to the soup. Malabnaw siya.

128544Salpicao - tasted good but was not consistent some cubes are tough to chew.

128544Fried hainanese chicken rice - the chicken rice would not pass as a chicken rice. The rice grain was a little to hard. The chicken reminds me of savory chicken.

They also didn't gave us a receipt and heard from another table the same complaint of why there is no receipt.

Overall good service is always the golden rule in any business. Hope they could improve. 128548

Hai Chix & Steaks has become a well-kept secret for those looking for cheap yet delicious grub in an unpretentious atmosphere. the original concept for the restaurant was just as a steak bar. It then evolved into serving the classic chicken dish, as well. Late last year, they opened their second branch at the SM Jazz Mall in Makati City. Yiiihhhh 128522128077 But that’s precisely what the Hainanese chicken and steak place is not–they just happen to serve equally delicious steak and Hainanese chicken

I work in Ortigas business district in Pasig and I found out that they have their branch located at Home Depot 128515128077 and it's really nice to know that's why I tried with my co officemates and they was amazed about the food..

I perfectly recommend this foody to you guys 128525128077

The menu doesn't have a lot of items and is written on a blackboard behind a counter were you place your order with the cashier, just like a fast food restaurant. Part of the kitchen is open to view so you can see what’s going on. The dining area isn’t very large, but it's clean and nice, maybe enough for 30 people can only accommodate..
We enjoyed our lunch here.. You've got to try their Hainanese Chicken Rice and their Hanger Steak Shrimp Pasta 128523128077 yummy and tasty!!!!
I will surely go back again to try their expensive porterhouse steak..some reviews said its really yummy..so we decided to try the "not so expensive but one of their best-sell in the menu" for just 330 I enjoy my pasta and ice tea... I'll surely go back and try other best sell in their menu.. 128540128540128522128523..
Also, their food plating are intagramable already! 128525128079

I love Hai!!! I was wondering how come I didnt discover this gem sooner! But I'm glad I did.

We had their Steak (good for 3pax) and it came with 2 steak rice and 2 sidings. The steak was tender and well seasoned. It was pre-cut for easy picking. I love that they toasted the steak fat bits hehe. The steak rice was good too!

Im gonna be back that's for sure! 128077🏻

Have wanted to try this place for a while, but since it is out of the way, tend to forget.

I had the porterhouse and the shrimp and garlic. I enjoyed them both. Steak was more than enough to share!

My companions each had a prawn bisque...looks good and enough to share as well! will try it next time.

Looks like they are opening another branch soon, this time more accessible, in Green hills.

Tried the Wagyu Bacon & Egg (P390.00), Breakfast Steak Tapa (P275.00), and Iced Tea (P60.00). For swanky place the service is not that impressive. Most steak places serve complimentary bread (even soup). With Hai Chix there wad no freebies and you have to go to the counter and select your food from a board which was somewhat quite taxing. The eggs were a bit salty and the viands were pretty much average. Will have to come back to try the rest maybe the chicken and steak.

I have been to Hai Chix maybe 5 times and I have only ordered the steak- Porterhouse or Ribeye. I like my steak medium rare. Here they cut off the fat and sear it until crunchy then they layer it on top of the steak. It's a big steak so come here with hungry friends.

I like the sides are also great particularly the corn and japanese rice.

Superb steak. Don't be fooled by their wagyu bacon though... It was just meh. Nevertheless, would definitely still go back. 128077

I always love places that are hidden away from everything. However, hole in the wall food joints are always a hit or miss for me. There are times where I rave about it endlessly to my friends. There are also times where I just erase the restaurant from my memory.

Hai Chix is one of those places where the experience was forgettable. First, I must say that the place looks charming. Nothing beats a perfectly lit place with the aroma of steak in the air. But it must be noted that you don't go to restaurants for the interiors. I ordered their fried chicken hainanese rice and ribeye steak, the place's namesake. The presentation of both dishes were Instagram-ready. I don't have a picture of the fried chicken hainanese rice but if you look at the picture I posted, that ribeye is one good looking piece of beef.

The love affair with this restaurant ends here. The fried hainanese chicken was really dry and tough to bite. Think cafeteria fried chicken that was left on the display for a couple of hours. The medium steak successfully defended itself from the invasion of the knife and fork army. In other words, it was far from tender. Plus points on their Hainanese rice though, but that's not saying much.

Eating at Hai Chix is like dating the popular girl who never goes to class. It's nice to be seen hanging around her. But once you get to know the real her, you realize that it's going to be nothing more than a one night stand. All looks and no substance.

We passed by to this place every time we get a car wash. So one day, we decided to visit it and have breakfast/brunch.

I ordered the Wagyu Bacon and Egg for P390. It comes with egg, bacon and fries or chicken rice. I went to the latter. It's a bit pricey but the food's pretty good.

I forgot what my boyfriend ordered but it was presented really nice.

Considering the prices on their menu, I think their concept is for-sharing. So bring a friend or two if you eat here.

I'm a big meat eater and I loooove steaks! The Porter house steak in this place is tender, juicy flavorful and cooked just right, a bit pricey but it's big enough to share127830. Although The thing that makes me salivate just thinking about it is the Butter N' Garlic Shrimps! It's sooo amazingly good you'll forget about how much cholesterol it has in it.

Guess even the mighty Hai Chix and Steaks is not infallible.

I've given this so many five stars and recommended this to my friends, colleagues and family, so it saddened me that, on the day I finally brought my Mom, and sisters here, after hyping it up as the best value for money USDA steak, they failed bringing even a decent modicum of service.

We sat in about 12:15pm, it wasn't even half full yet, yet the following arrived late:

Garlic Shrimp - 30 minutes (this time only a 3/5; wasn't as plump and lacked the usual amount of garlic bits)

Salpicao - 40 minutes 3.5/5 Decent tasting but a bit tough.

Porterhouse steak - arrived after almost an hour!!! Still tasted great (5/5) but the experience soured due to bad work by both the kitchen and the wait staff who weren't communicating with each other.

Ribs - arrived about the same time as the salpicao; wasn't impressively tender, but it was well flavored. Not far from Rub. 3.5/5

Ribeye - arrived an hour later! 4/5 Still pales in comparison with the Porterhouse but an excellent steak by any stretch of the imagination. Just ruined by the late delivery.

Hainanese Chicken - to try. Haha. Competition kasi I have my own franchise (Hainanese Delights, which is true value for money) in Robinsons Magnolia 128518 but it was pretty good. Plump, good side sauces. Hainan rice was yummy. 3.5/5

The ones who arrived after us got their steaks maybe five to ten minutes before we got ours. And I was dealing with disappointment and trying hard not to shout at them when, but they were so bad that even my wife went over to complain; and wow, she wasn't treated well by their "head chef" who was being argumentative instead of apologetic (this puny worth of a man who said that the other tables had to get theirs first because their orders were medium rare while ours was medium; all the while speaking a bit condescending, too! 128545128545128545; I was too embarrassed from the bad service and with my Mom there so I didn't speak with him na lang; though I did express my displeasure at the ladies at the counter many times), buti na lang hindi ko siya sinugod! By the way, his "logic" only applies if we ordered our steaks at the same time. Doesn't make sense the way he explained it.

I think that the fault would go to the expediter, if they had one.

The wait staff were also poor. Lacked discipline, you had to call them twice to get their attention, & totally not at all as good as before.

It didn't help at all that, despite our hefty orders, they still insisted on counter order. Gosh, Hindi Ito McDo, guys!

Overall, Hai Chix has to step the hell up. Tama ba, looloo, just cause you've got very good and decent priced food, doesn't mean you get a good rating, right? Service is also helluvan important metric.

Step the hell up!

After reading JP G's rave reviews, I kept Hai Chix in mind and said that I'd try it if and when I'm in the area. Of course I forgot about it 128540
Last Saturday, after enduring grueling traffic to go to a children's party at racks el pueblo (90mins from silver city to el pueblo 128557), I felt totally drained. As in ayoko na bumaba sa party. It was almost finished when we arrived. Anyways, my friend asked where we were going after and I said I don't know but have to maximize my time here! She said they're having dinner at hai chix and I'm like that sounds familiar.. Oh yeah! Steak after getting stuck in traffic is a great idea!
Her description was 'mamou like steak at half the price' and I said I'll be the judge of that haha! It's located at the back of Home Depot, near the buy and sell cars. Good thing there were a lot of available tables when we got there.
I think lining up ala fastfood is a good idea so you can just leave after you eat. Since it was our first time, we decided to go all out. We got their 650g ribeye, the granulated fish and two orders of iced tea. My friends go the salpicao, fish and chips and a bottle of wine.
I must say that it's almost there! I guess the only difference is the grade of the ribeye. Did some quick Math and theirs is at 3pesos/gram while mamou's is at 4.40/gram. Steak geek haha!
All the other dishes were good too and they serve Pinkerton ice cream! Yay!
Total bill for the steak, granulated fish and iced teas was php2300. Ok narin, might get the smaller steak next time.
They've got to work on their service though, salpicao arrived before the wine 128533

It's been a while again! I must say I miss this app! And I owe this app.. A lot. So yes, it's time to share again. (Feeling guilty lol)

Okay. First of all I decided to make this post and future posts to be brief (I will REALLY try haha) but still informative and helpful (I hope). Let's do this!128522

Food:
1. Ribeye: Vey tender. They were able to satisfy our medium well request. The steak rice was flavorful and even though I'm not a fan of "dry texture" rice, I still appreciate it somehow because of the taste.
2. Butter Garlic Shrimp: Unexpectedly good! The bread served with it was also yummy! 128077
3. Buffalo Wings: It was okay. I was craving for wings but it didn't satisfy my tummy and tastebuds.

Place:
Small but cute. Very cold AC. Not so good exhaust. Parking may be a little challenging.

Service:
Pay as you order. Fast enough and accommodating. 128522

USDA Ribeye 330g for P1,100. NOT BAD! The steak was so flavorful, sinful, wonderful (all the positive adjectives with the suffix -ful)

Fried Hainanese Chicken for P440 (good for 2). The chicken is served with two cups of chicken rice. The chicken and the rice did not disappoint as well.

Definitely coming back to this place... later 128514
