    Unfussy service - appreciated. Interesting tastes. Entrees were a little ‘precious’ Oysters $10 each? A little over the top we thought. Worth a visit.

    Great place for a date because it's quiet enough that you can hear what your companion is saying.

    Bahala ka na feed me choice is delish!!! The fusion of old taste(the way I knew it) and the magic done by the chef to bring the dish to a new light,taste and fireworks in the palate. Service was grande, looked after very well and the special touch of ube cake for the birthday celebration is emotionally touching❤️ Highly recommend and appreciated, will definitely spread the good news upon return to Sydney

    We had set meals. The food comes out late and when dessert came in. We were asked by the female waitress to eat quickly as we only have 15min till 2 hrs days.

    We had an incredible dining experience at Askal. We enjoyed the ambience, which was enhanced by the Askal team’s thoughtful service. The food was delightful - highlights included the sisig, pan de Melbourne and the chicken inasal. We are already looking forward to our next visit.

    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.
