One of the places you can dine in Dubai for grilled Filipino food is Manila Grill restaurant located in Asiana Hotel. We’ve been to Asiana Hotel before when we had a Pinoy pork buffet at Lamesa Restaurant. Manila Grill is another place in the hotel that specializes in our beloved Filipino cuisine as well as some Philippine street food.

We visited the restaurant on a weekday for dinner as we were craving for some grilled Pinoy food. There is also live acoustic entertainment when we arrived. By the way those who have “Korooti cards” will get 10% discount from the total bill (only for regular-priced items).

Having lived abroad for quite a while, it is only natural to feel homesick sometimes. Fortunately, there are places and things that remind us of home. There are also Filipino restaurants in Dubai where we can satisfy our cravings for delicious Pinoy dishes.
One of these restaurants is Manila Grill, situated on the ground floor of Asiana Hotel in Dubai. Set in a cozy ambiance with live entertainment, the restaurant serves Filipino favourites including pork. These include crispy pata, lechon kawali, sisig, and other pork dishes!

Whether you’re planning a dinner for two or getting together with friends, Manila Grill offers special combo as well as group packages. Moreover, they cater for special events, such as birthdays, reunions, and corporate gatherings – with seating available for up to 140 guests.
At Manila Grill, they serve classic Filipino cuisine for lunch and dinner. The crispy pata is a popular choice, along with the crunchy lechon kawali and tasty sisig. Aside from pork dishes, they also have poultry, seafood, and beef recipes – all served Pinoy style, of course!

What’s more, you shouldn’t miss other Filipino favourites: pansit bihon, pork barbecue, and even isaw! You will also enjoy the complimentary chicharon and a popular side dish – mango with bagoong. It’s the perfect place to introduce Pinoy food to your foreign friends!
Cozy interiors, courteous and friendly staff, live music, a full bar — this is what Manila Grill Restaurant offers. A typical dinner for two here could cost AED 300, which may be a bit pricey — but definitely worth the cost — especially since you’d be in a 5-star setting!
