Prices were average or above average. Two of us ordered beef short ribs, pig stomach and tenderloin tips. We had one plain rice each and a bottle of oolong tea since they do not serve house tea. Our bill totalled 2,000 pesos.

Food was typical barbeque Korean meat. What was disappointing is that unlike most Korean grill place where they serve you 6 to 7 kinds of appetizers, this place only serves 3. Their appertizers were Kimchi, thinly sliced onion leeks and steam egg. So if you're like me who look forward to different Korean appetizers, this place is not for you. By the way, the tenderloin tips turned out dry.

If you love Korean food and is on a semi-tight budget, then Makchang is the place for you!

While we were hunting for a place to eat, we had that moment of confusion of what we want to eat. That's when I first tried using Looloo app for finding a restaurant nearby. We searched for Korean restaurants, and Makchang popped into one of the choices. Having a decent number of reviews, we've searched for the place.

At first, we were hesitant to go in because the ambiance looks like it was maintained poorly. The other restaurant beside it has a better ambiance though. However, most people seem to go inside this restaurant instead of the other one. So we thought, there might something good with the food. Thus, we pushed the door forward and took the menu.

We ordered samgyupsal and its beef version (I forgot the Korean name), and along with it are the side dishes. An order costs around PhP300, and is good for sharing. We were three in the group and we were already bloated just by these orders.

The food was for me, an above average, and the value for money was much even greater.

Lesson learned: We shouldn't judge a place (or anything) just with the outside appearance. 128517

Craving for Korean food? Then you must go here!!!! They only serve plain rice there but luckily there next door neighbor (forgot the name of the restaurant) serves bibimbap so i placed one order and they served it to me. Haha! Ofcourse we ordered the Samgyupsal (pork) and Woo-Samgyub (beef), both the traditional faves. They served 4 side dishes, soup, and lettuce. All are unlimited! Yes All!!!! Plus the staffs cooked for you and they have this smoke sucking machine on top of the griller so the restaurant is not that smoky. Must try!!!

This is at the new makchang along adriatico, infront of Malate Bayview Mansion. The store is much bigger compared to the store near robinsons manila. Also, they are 24hrs and they served us complimentary steamed egg! When we dined there, it was lunch time so we are the only guest at that time. As always, service and food are superb! The server is attentive and accommodating. We asked him if they could add more soup on our sundubu chigae and they gladly said yes. Will come back again!

Revisited this old classic for dinner with friends a
while back. This review actually for one of their new branches along Adriatico street as well, but right in front of CBTL Adriatico, near Remedios Circle.

The look of the place is kind of the same, a little bit sleeker. We were seated at our table, the ones with the grill and exhaust pipe in the middle. We had two orders of pork galbi and samgyeopsal (cost about 300 or so pesos per order). Our orders came with soup, egg, Korean BBQ dipping sauces and of course the refillable side dishes including kimchi, etc.

Our orders came after a couple of minutes and the servers are happy to grill or cook your food for you as you sit back, relax and use the internet (they have wi-fi!!). Food was A+, from the main BBQ dishes to the side dishes. Fresh and plentiful. Everything was so good and even if I was full, I didn't want dinner to end just yet. Delightful burst of flavors and textures in each mouthful. Definitely a good place for good Korean BBQ. 128522

Looking for a good Korean restaurant? you should try this place. Not kidding, you should really try it. The area might turn you off at first because it's on a busy street but the place has its own parking space for customers so that's a big plus. This is a new branch so it's clean, spacious and has a modern Korean restaurant feel. Staff were very attentive and full of energy.

Menu is pretty simple, you won't be intimidated on what to order and reasonably priced (P300 for an order of Samgyupsal). Their side dishes are bit limited compared to other Korean places coz they only have egg white soup and salad (I can't remember if they served free kimchi) but don't let that stop you from going. Quality of food is really good and you will definitely get value for money. Meat and veggies that they serve are always fresh.

Overall experience in this place is pretty good and will definitely come back. but yea since this area gets a bit crowded I suggest you come by during off peak hours so you can get a good(safe) parking slot. 128521

Not a family meal kind of place. The barbecue was ok, nothing unforgettable except for the sesame leaves which were pretty good.

Again this Korean strength food hit the spot. Things I didn't like so much about this visit: 1) they didn't serve their soup with the reason that they were just cooking it (man it was 12 noon they should have cooked it in anticipation of the lunch crowd) and 2) they didn't provide our beloved sesame leaf. A little disappointing.

My most favorite Korean BBQ of all time! Never mind the hole in the wall appearance and the presence of some "low flying pigeons." This place rocks!

I like the food as usual but i dont like the place at all. Too old and crowded and also very noisy.
I don't like also their "minimum policy" in ordering the meat for grill.
On the other hand i like their other branch in the south, it is more ok but too far from my place128530.

The pork didn't seem to have much taste and the kimchi tasted more sour than spicy. We ordered the kimchi stew which was also more sour than spicy. It was just OK compared to when we used to eat there.
