    Happy that we got accommodated earlier than our booked slot. Food was flavourful! Only the pancit which for me is good but hope it was less spicy and salty, we thought the chillimansi soy sauce was put too much? We finished our food and might come back but will order in an ala carte as we can order other foods.

    Such a lovely vibe and warm and attentive hosts. Unfortunately the food just wasn’t up to par. Crab lost in a very strong sambal style sauce in noodles, very oily and saucy deep fried fritter. Cocktails were ok but not amazing. Dessert was great. Hoping the dishes can be improved, I would be back.

    Great ambience! The venue wasn't so loud that we couldn't hear each other speak. The dishes we ordered were very tasty and gave a nod to the nostalgia we grew up with in eating Filipino food; all with a modern approach. Service was exceptional and we were keenly looked after, without being overserviced. The waiters were personable especially the person who sat us down - that person was an absolute delight and knew how to deliver on a lovely experience!

    Excellent venue with very professional friendly service. We had the feed me menu at $95 per head plus a few extras as suggested by lovely Jess. Great food presented timely and exquisite in taste. The venue is both great for an intimate dinner, a large group dinner or sit at the bar where you will witness the smooth operation of Askal. Not to forget a great wine list of which we had 2 bottles 1 of Pinot Noir and a Riesling both from the border of Austria and Germany. A simply magnificent night. I will be back. 🙏 A special thankyou also goes to Carlos for his professionalism and personality.

    Great representation of Filipino cuisine with a modern twist. Great flavours and a beautiful meal. Super grateful that they also catered for my 2.5 year old with her own meal.

    The Feed Me menu is well worth it - the wagyu oyster blade with claypot rice and bone marrow was the highlight.
