Top 6 Restaurants in Makati – Dining at the country's financial hub

Located in the glitzy Metro Manila, Makati is well known for its diverse atmosphere. This diversity even applies to the restaurant scene as you can find cuisines from all parts of the world.


Hummus Elijah

Serving rare Middle Eastern vegetarian dishes, Humus Elijah is a gem that is adored by the locals. Open all days of the week, they aim to incorporate a healthy lifestyle into the lives of their patrons. One of the best restaurants in the city for fresh salads and platters, they are also well known for their great atmosphere which is further enhanced by the helpful and friendly staff.


People's Palace

Thai cuisine has always been a favourite regardless of which corner of the world you are talking about. For the best in Thai's exotic cuisine, drop by at the People's Palace. A ten minute drive from hotels such as Berjaya Makati Hotel, People's Palace offers a chilled out ambience. This is combined with a wide range of Thai dishes beginning from starters such as hot and sour prawn soups to the famed tofu and crispy egg noodles.



Widely considered to be the go-to location for Western cuisine, you can find everything European under its roof. This includes the famed English apple pie as well as authentic Italian pizza. The interior décor of the restaurant features an aviation focused theme while the name is derived from the legendary Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. The location too is aptly chosen. You can find Blackbird at Neilson Tower present at the Ayala Triangle, which was once an airport.


Bubba Gump's

For those who love seafood as well as American cuisine, there is absolutely no question on why Bubba Gump's deserves a visit. They serve some of the finest seafood dishes, but with an American influence on the dishes that give it a distinctive flavour. The inspiration for the unorthodox name of the restaurant is from the movie Forest Grump and this inspiration even translates to the ambience of the establishment. You can expect a laid back and fun atmosphere with enough space for families. It is also an excellent venue for a group party, should you want to. If you are visiting Bubba Gump's, make it a point to order their Popcorn Shrimps!


Sala Bistro

With an ambience that sets the right mood for a date, Sala Bistro is good for those who are craving European and Italian. They also serve alcohol and have a long cocktail list, which further adds to the mood. Located at the Paseo De Roxas Ayala Center, Sala Bistro opens only at 11 AM, so don't bother making it there for breakfast.


Tim Ho Wan

It would be unforgivable to end a list of top restaurants in Makati without mentioning Tim Ho Wan. This restaurant serves Chinese cuisine and has a Michelin star as a sign of its continued excellence and innovation in the restaurant scene. Located at the Ayala Centre, Tim Ho Wan is highly revered in the city of Makati. Their Pork Buns are a major highlight and thoroughly deserve a try.
