Original mami and special asado siopao is my go to combo here. Unfortunately, service is super slow and poor. Given that the place is always full but i find it annoying that i was the only one calling their attention but the other waiters are blatantly ignoring me. Is it because there is an assigned server for our table? Is it because im not chinese? (Charot nabadtrip talaga ako haha) I was raising my hand for a good 10 minutes. And when i gave my order, we asked for our bill na because we dont want to wait for another 10 minutes just for it. I think ill just go here if im not that hungry. Or for siopao takeout :P

Old timers in the family shares a nostalgic story about Ma Mon Luk. My mother once revealed that her graduation celebration was done here in the early 80’s. It was my Dad’s restaurant of choice for Father’s Day in honor of our Grandpa’s favorite siopao. Every time a balikbayan relative would arrive home, Ma Mon Luk is always part of the restaurant checklist.

The vintage facade and interiors keep its original look. The walls are filled with magazine features tracing the legacy of the restaurant. It stands along Quezon Avenue, a major road with passing public utility vehicles. Ventilation is open-air making it appear grubby. It was never renovated and even the menu sticks to its classic flavor. Special Siopao (P70) remains to be the best-tasting asado however the original mami (P120) gets bland through time. There are other Chinese specialties available within the price range of P120-200.

The restaurant is always packed so expect a slow-moving service. The servers are attentive but insufficient to the number of tables. Bring more patience for there are senior servers, too.

The place was full. Service was bad. We were trying to get the servers' attention but it took maybe 10 minutes before they finally took our orders. Our table wasn't even cleaned yet when we sat down.

Despite that, once ordered, the food comes quick. We had their original mami which had pork asado meat and chicken meat. The noodles was a bit different from the one in the Benavidez branch. However, I'm not sure if the owners are the same. For a large bowl, it's PHP120. Small one is PHP110. But the large bowl and small bowl's contents have only a small difference.

The place is not one of the cleanest so probably eat at your own risk.

Some things just never change:
1/ Ma mun lok's original noodles recipe is still as good!
2/ Piles of plates are still left on tables until customers request these to be taken care of.

Despite the bad service and upkeep of this branch, many people still flock over for its food. I hope they improve soon. Please! 128591🏻

We went to NLRC for some errands and my boss kept telling me that this place serves good food.

I ordered their mami and special siopao. I can tell that their mami tastes Authentic. As in VERY AUTHENTIC and I loved it! 128525
Their Special siopao is made of asado, salted egg and chicken. I never thought it would taste that good considering that it has "Tri" filling.

They serve affordable food! 128076🏻 This is a must place if you wish to eat something filling yet tipid. 128077🏻 next time I'll try their siomai 10084

127836 ORIGINAL MAMI - SPECIAL [Regular P110 • Large P120] 11088110881108811088
Noodles with slices of Asado and Chicken. Ma mun lok's original mami has been a childhood favorite and it still is. It's quite affordable too!

I like how everything is served piping hot and fast. However, I really need to comment how bad the hygiene of this place is. Bowls and utensils of previous customers are not cleaned immediately. In fact, these are stacked up and left on the tables for at least 10 minutes. The place is quite big so it's quite hard to manage. Further, you'll notice right away that they are severely understaffed. In my opinion, they need to add at least two more staff - one server and one dishwasher. I think there was only one dishwasher during our visit. It makes me question if everything was cleaned properly. 128560

Seeing the other reviews with photos... Im a bit disappointed with my order. My original mami looked sad and pale, and a little bland 🙁. Or maybe I was expecting really high. I like the siopao though. 9996🏻️128523

After our dentist appointment, hubby suggested to check out the Banawe restos. At first, we were headed to Tien Ma but I suddenly searched Ma Mon Luk so we tried it (at least I did coz it was my first time) The siopao was big and the bun is sweet so I like it. Chicken mami was good too. Next time need to try their beef noodles. Didn't bother to order the sio mai based on the review.

I'm back! 128522 After making the big switch from IOS to android, I always thought looloo was only available in the former. Anyways, while looking around the playstore, I was pleasantly surprised to see the familiar red, white and blue icon there. So here I am again.

Ma mon luk was a happy place for us during our childhood so it's nice to see they still havent modernized the look of the place. (adds to the nostalgia).

The siopao and mami are still the dynamic duo here so its no surprise thats what I ordered. And yup - still tastes the same. Comfort food as its best. Service is typical. I don't miss the waiter's thumb in my soup though. 128513

Nothing can indeed compare with the delectable choices offered by this unassuming Chinoy eatery. Don't let the looks fool you. Despite the humid ambience and bustling Quezon Avenue traffic echoing from its windows, it's undeniable that their Special Siopao and/or Special Mami are worth the visit.
