Max’s of Manila

If you’re looking to try some Filipino food, Max’s of Manila was just voted Hawaii’s Best 2014 Filipino Restaurant. I’m not sure if I agree though. I went to the location near Costco Dillingham at 801 Dillingham Boulevard. I ordered a plate ($8.95) which included a quarter of Max’s famous fried chicken, pancit, brown rice, and a caramel bar.

Honestly, I don’t know what’s the hype about the chicken. The skin was crispy but the meat seemed dry, overcooked and lacked much taste to me. The pancit was pretty good . The brown rice was nicely wrapped and was not the typical brown rice.

Perhaps, I didn’t order the right items. However, I’ve had better Filipino food.

The restaurant is clean and there’s lots of parking. Service was fine.
