Ordered Php229 chicken and gyro over rice. It's ok but it lacked flavor though, maybe it's just me. 128517

Ultimate craving checked!

Thanks to my little brother who started in the corporate world - I got to taste his treat!

Specially requested for Halal Guys Gyros Combo Platter because I’ve been craving so badly for this - especially the cucumber sauce.

Nuff said. 128525🙃🤤128523

For our 3rd visit, we ordered just the gyro regular for P230. It was still OK. The taste was not satisfying, parang laman tiyan lang ito pero ang mahal 🤑 haha
Nanghihinayang pa nga ako sa serving ng rice kasi may measurement cup (sandok) sila for the regular serving, may mga dumikit kasi sa cup at hindi tinaktak nung staff so technically nabawasan yung rice ng meal ko haha 128542

I'm one of the people who actually crave for Halal Guys. I know that there are cheaper options, but I feel like you get what you paid for. I have no better way of describing it, but the food tastes clean. Nothing too oily and everything is fresh. Not all restaurants in the same genre can claim the same thing. I've had some funky tasting donners/kebabs before, but I always know what to expect at THG. Other than the chicken and gyro platter, my fiance and I love the chicken and fries. The fries are dusted with spices ( barbecue powder? paprika? just guessing) topped with their chicken and served with their barbecue and white sauces. I just like this, I think it's a great snack. We keep coming back to this dish in particular...

One thing though: I just hope that THG gives us the white sauce for free or at least douses the platters with more sauce. That would be great!128077

Parati akong 4 stars, so to balance it out... 127775127775127775

Headlines:
1. Did not meet my expectations. Hype vs reality
2. Price is too expensive vs quality
3. I taste nothing. Sauce is too little as well. Meat is dry. Rice is dry as well.

Disappointed. 128532

I got the Falafel and Chicken on rice with white sauce, hot sauce on the side.

I suddenly craved for this food once I stepped inside Megamall, and I must say that it was a lot better and tastier than my first experience with this food. I was not able to review about it the first time I had this since I was really disappointed with how dry their meat was back then.

I only added just a drop of their hot sauce, and it was already too spicy for me.

Hindi pa din talaga siya masarap e. I ate it the right way this time.

Hinalo ko lahat sa plate, I had to pay extra for white onions btw, then I ate it. Ang tabang talaga e. Walang lasa. Except pag nilagyan mo ng hot sauce, at yun lang ang nag dadala. Ultimo garlic sauce, ang tabang. Buti nga ngayon madami na silang nilalagay e dati karampot tas may bayad ang extra. Wow.

Kung mas mura ito, okay sana. Kaso hindi e. That's why I believe it is a complete rip off.

So overall, 250PHP for the small Gyro Plate with extra white onions.

Puki. Mag Food Channel na lang kayo friends, 100PHP lang ang shawarma rice. Or Behrouz, makakapag Ox Brain ka pa. Huwag dito. Save your money. Kumain sa mas masarap at mas sulit.

When looloo says they miss you, you know that you miss them too. I've been lagging on my reviews here so expect a whole lotta backtracking. Haha 128517

Finally got to try this much-acclaimed rice spot. Lucky me, there was no line and service was fast. I chose their mixed platter which consisted of their chicken and beef gyro. I preferred the beef more for it had more flavor. The seasoning was just on point there. And the sauce, well, no wonder people like it! I had the white sauce over my plate which was just good. It is a little pricey imo (I think my dish totaled to a close P300) but it did deliver in terms of flavor. And oh yeah, so glad a branch opened near my area. I don't have to go at this branch (really far from me) to grab a plate. 128523

Why do a lot of people give Halal Guys a negative rep when they are not eating it the way it's supposed to be eaten? It's definitely bland if you don't add up all the separate flavors on the plate. Mix everything with that sauce (white or red or both) before you take your first bite. It's not one spoon of meat then rice then spoon of veggies then spoon of rice so on and so forth. It's like eating a bibimbap piece by piece. Perhaps this is also due to the staff's lack of initiative to inform their customers of how to properly eat it. Give it another try. It's like a bad first date with your bf/gf but doesn't mean they suck as you still eventually fell for them with another try.

Typing as I munch..

A friend has been pushing me since last year to try Halal Guys, beat, i gave in, took a year though due to it's kinda hassle location in SM Fashion Hall at SM Megamall. I live up north, so why traverse to get greek food, well i found out today, gladly they are opening another branch in SM North Edsa.

So.. I ordered one, there's no line on this Saturday evening, served quick and on my seat in about 5 mins.. One plate with drink, they have other new items but skeptikal me tried their main, world famous meal.

I get.. In one round aluminum plate are the usual meat + veggie affair, half the plate is meat, very generous! Other half are lettuce and tomato with two pieces of pita cuts on top, juicy and freshly cut veggies is always a plus, covering the entire orange rice serving that occupies the entire plate underneath! The meat is drenched with this famed wite sauce everyone is going crazy about. There's garlic but im going with the white for now..

With a spoon and fork, a true New Yorker eats this mixing everything together and not the Pinoy style where the rice and dish is eaten seperate on your spoon. This one must converge in your plate at once before reaching your mouth and there's a good reason why! New Yorkers eat this one hand, plus that white sauce, this sauce must reach everything in the plate!

There's something addicting in this white sauce that makes you want to get their tube and pour everything in your plate like soup. I cant really say what's in it but it binds everything together nicely and it's quite yummy, the bread tastes a bit better with it than rice but both are good! This pita bread is so soft yum! Warm meal means it was prepared fresh, taste like it too, and that's a huge plus! Rice could have been more moist but it's alright. The meat is soft and very flavorful. The softdrink, they have iced tea too, leaves great after taste from the saltnesa of the meal. Definitely worth the price! So why only 4 out of 5 stars.. It's my fault, i failed to order more sauce and relied on their serving which is enough but for me, NO i want more, more, more! That sauce!

Mmm!

I'm full so i cant try their new ones with fries. Darn it, ugh!

When I first tried Halal guys during its hype, I didn't enjoy it.. It was just OK and was expensive. So I wanted to give it another try, I ordered their cheapest promo P99 just so I can taste it again. And here is the photo.. The meat tasted well, and the fries too. So for the price, yeah I ordered French Fries.

Been craving for this halal streetfood of NYC and the taste of the beef gyro was a bit different. The portion I got was the small size (on promo). The beef tender, vegetables were fresh, the rice and beef though were not served hot. But the pita bread is delicious. Crew were very nice.

I ordered their new york size sandwich which happens to be a roll (shawarma) rather than a sandwich, anyway i chose the falafel as meat and garlic aoli for the sauce, it was huge enough to be shared by me and my partner coz we also ordered a salad for a siding, upon payment something got my attention....

What made me curious was their hot sauce, besides it's packaging having a warning message the crew also reminds to take caution when putting their hot sauce, not to put too much because it's too hot, well i just got more curious and had the urge to try pouring the whole packet in one bite or two and so i did, well it was indeed hot as hell, the burning sensation ran down feom my throat to my stomach, felt the burn for a couple of minutes but it easily goes away 128567 it was a heck of an experience and i would like to have more!

Chicken over rice

I love chicken, and I love rice so there's no surprise that I got this. This is not my first time to eat something like this. We have one in Cebu by Jafar's and so far this one did not come close. 9996🏼️
This came with rice, cabbage, tomatoes and chicken. You have to pay extra for the goddamn onions and bell pepper. 🙄
The only win part to this food adventure was their hot sauce. This is the first time ever I've "tasted spicy" ever since I got into eating our local chili. Gooood, the feeling of a burning tongue is so good! 128293 This saved my eating experience because it was a blah without the spicy sauce.

Late for the crowd, but finally got to try Halal Guys!

During my short homecoming last weekend, my family brought me to Halal Guys in SM Megamall. Usually I was the one recommending food places to eat at, but with all their hype to this place, I obliged.

Luckily we were there before the lunch crowd, thus so many seats! (And my first time to visit SM Mega's new food hall. 128586)

We all got one small platter for each of us - and the Mixed Gyros Platter was my pick. It was sooooooo good!

I especially liked the white sauce (didn't bother to try the red one though hee hee!) and spread the garlic sauce on top as well. 128525128061

I would definitely be coming back for this - especially for Mediterranean cravings! 128513
