Had an early lunch at Silantro and ordered their Beef Nachos and Silantro Quesadilla. I think their service has improved as my order and the bill arrived fast. As for the food, still affordable and generous! I hope they open more branches soon.

Late post!

Wasn't able to take photos of the other things we ordered since I was so hungry and I just went on to eat lol

We ordered Nachos, both the beef one and the regular one. My sisters and my parents split the beef one while I had the regular one all to myself. Hehehe. When in Silantro, all I need are those nachos and I'm good. Such a tasty snack. Goes well with the sauces they serve so don't be shy to ask for refills.

My sister ordered the Silantro's Quesadillas. To be honest, I'm not fan of the quesadillas. Too creamy and it felt more like eating lasagna.

We also had the Pork Ribs to share. This was just so-so. Barely had any meat. The Caliente Wings were just okay when it comes to flavor. Plus points for the size of the wings tho.

It was still early when we came to Silantro but the seats are already full. As expected the food tastes great! Planning to try other items in the menu on my next chill-out.

Finally tried Silantro while on our way to Pangasinan (Cavite to QC to NLEX) arrived around lunch time on a Saturday and the place was packed. We were 4th on the waitlist so we didnt mind waiting a bit. We were seated about after 15 minutes. Food were served fast because they already took our order while we were still waiting for our seats. The beef nachos were humungous. Loved that they didnt scrimped on the toppings. My soft tacos with 3 kinds of meat were savoury though it was a bit salty. It was also super filling. Good thing i ordered only 1. Haha! Hubby ordered burrito and he liked it as well. He was only able to eat half of it because he was already full half way! Service was a bit slow but it was understandable because of the full diners. Price was surprisingly cheap and i cant wait to go back :D

Had a quick lunch here the other day and I was pretty surprised that it wasn't as packed as it usually is.

Silantro, for me, has always been value for me. My friend and I split an order of Nachos, which is something I always order whenever I eat here. Really big serving, generous toppings, and really, really good.

I also had the Lucha Tacos, which you can have either with hard tacos or soft tacos. You get to pick up to three different kinds of meat. I went for the soft tacos with oxtail, beef, and pork. Again, really generous serving. The meat topping's really flavorful and tender. One soft taco might not seem much but it's actually really filling. And at Php110, sulit!

I remember having their cheese quesadilla more than a year ago and told myself I have to come back for it. This time around, however, it wasn't as good as I expected. I remember the cheese being creamy with just enough sharpness to balance, but now the cheese was too salty. I couldn't finish the whole dish. Maybe they changed it to a sharper cheddar? Whatever they did, I want the old cheese quesadilla back! 128557

Finally had a chance to eat here.

It was 9pm on a Saturday and we are 50th in the waiting list... that's how popular they are. We were seated at 1030pm and once the orders came, we forgot the waiting time.

Food was freshly made, tastes delicious and affordable.
We tried the nachos, soft tacos, ribs and skewers. All good!!

We took home paella and it's good too. Will bring my family here next time, but I need to strategize on what we'll do while waiting for more than an hour.

I was so surprised by the huge number of people dining in. We've waited for 2 hrs. (Yep, that long) to get our orders! Gaaad. Your patience will be tested here. Hahaha. But the good news is, food was so delicious! We've ordered beef nachos and calliente wings. It was the best nachos I've tasted so far! Plus it has a big serving. Yummy. Even if it took us so long to sit on our chairs, it was all worth it. Will definitely go back here next time! :)

Had dinner at Silantro with friends, or rather, attempted to have dinner at Silantro. There was already a waiting list and since we were 5th in the line, we endured the wait. When we were finally seated we ordered Beef Nachos, Salpicado, Completo Tacos, and the Paella Fajita and some beers.

There is only one photo in this review: and that is the beef nachos, because THAT IS THE ONLY FOOD THAT ARRIVED ON OUR TABLE!!! The nachos arrived just a few minutes after we were seated. At 180 pesos, it is incredibly cheap and super duper sulit. They are generous with their servings of cheese and beef. But then again, thatโ€™s the only thing we had on the table huhu. When we asked the first waiter to follow up, he said he will, went to ask the other waiters, then proceeded as if nothing happened AND THIS HAPPENED TO ANOTHER WAITER AS WELL! Incredible!!! My friend had to stand up and walk to the counter area to ask what the heck was going on. Apparently, the orders did not arrive in the kitchen and they even havenโ€™t started to make our dishes yet!!! 128561128530128545 Perhaps they were scared to tell us, but never have I experience this unprofessionalism of staff before. After the confrontation, we paid for the nachos and the drinks and walked out very hangry. We know that Silantro is famous and always crowded but that is not an excuse to be incredibly inefficient.

Iโ€™m still giving two stars because of the good quality of the food though.

Been wanting to eat here and finally when we were in the area, we decided to try it out finally. There was a long queue and we waited for almost 45 minutes to get a slot, no regrets though.128076 The food was delicious! We had an all meat dinner, it was like a carnivore night! 128046

It's pretty difficult to get a table, most especially during peak hours. Luckily, we got one for lunch last Wednesday.

I order their Silantro Burrito (180PHp) it was huge and filled with generous serving of beef, salsa and other ingredients. Then my friends ordered Grilled Porkchop (210PHp) and Salpicado (160PHp) which I got to taste and liked it as well.

They say the one in Kapitolyo is better but since I don't have any comparison. For me their food is still good.

197, that was our queuing number, and they were serving number 156 when we got there. Needless to say, Silantro was nothing short of amazing. Hyped or not, the experience was worthwhile.

We got there at around 7pm and we got seated by 8pm-ish. Tired and hungry, I was gradually losing my patience โ€“ and I told myself, this better be good! And it was. It is.

Before getting seated, the staff already took our orders, so they could prepare it in advance. We ordered their most famous Beef Nachos (180php), Calliente Wings (180php), Lamb Chop (350php) with a glass of Mojito (90php) and a glass of Margarita (120php) on the side. I even ordered some extra rice thinking that our food is not enought to satisfy my deep hunger. I've never been so wrong in my life.

The food:

โœ” BEEF NACHOS -- wouldn't be their bestseller for nothing. It was the bomb!! And when they say beef, they don't mean the usual petty ground beef. They mean chunks and chunks of cubed beef. I couldn't handle myself when it was served before us. I was spazztic!!! LOL Together with the beef, it was topped with loads of fresh tomatoes and lots of melted cheese. I KNOOOOOW, MELTED CHEESE. 128149 What surprised me a bit is there was even avocado in it!! Which my friend super liked. But I was not a fan of it. I don't like avocados haha (don't judge me pls lol) But avocados or not, it's still good. The nacho chips were good as well, crispy and not so salty. 128076

โœ” CALLIENTE WINGS -- was considered an appetizer. It is not. I tell you, it is a meal on its own!!! 6 above averaged-sized chicken wings drenched in bbq sauce and topped with shredded greens. Who would've they could go together so perfectly? This is actually my favorite. The bbq sauce was sweet and has a little spice on it. Perfectly balanced flavors. Pair it with their special ranch dressing and you are good to go! Best eaten with bare hands! 128076 (I ate 4 pieces!!! Haha)

โœ” LAMB CHOP -- My friend is the one who ordered this. She was seriously craving for some lamb chops before we even got there. Luckily for her, Silantro's Lamb Chops were nothing short of good. We ordered it medium-well. It was really tasty. Served with mashed potatoes on the side, this showstopper is definitely a must try! (Although, the lamb chop we got was still a bit hard and rubbery on some parts. 128532)

โœ” DRINKS -- the drinks were okay, I guess, if you like it strong. We asked for extra ice to put on our drinks to water it downs. I did not even finish my Mojito. Sad. 128532128532128532

Overall, the food experience was so good! I will definitely go back and try the other food on their menu (I heard, the quesadilla is a must try as well!). The staff were nice and accomodating too! The place is nice and vibey. The price is super worth it because of their large servings!!!128076128076128076

Went at around 6.30pm on a Friday payday. Will take around 30mins to get seated so get queued up and you may also order ahead.

Beef Nachos - 180php
Trio soft tacos (triple lamb) - 110php
Salad - 65 php
Trio soft tacos (pork,chicken,lamb)

There's usually a long line outside and once you start eating, you will know why. Nachos pinakasulit! They torch the beef and cheese on top! It can be your main course if mabilis Ka mabusog! May beef pa na super lambot at super sarap! The beef is not your cookie cutter ground beef but strands of beef steak haha! #win

Soft shell tacos are winners as well! Would always want to go here everytime I'm at uptown.
