We tried the executive bento, sweet and sour pork (ala carte) and almond gulaman. The chicken and pancit canton are underseasoned for our taste and the almond jelly is refreshing yet is on the tea taste side. I compliment their good customer service (attentive waiters), cozy ambiance and clean restroom. The shrimp cake surprised us with savory taste.

It looks like a canteen. Their signage was not that noticeable and there were some scraps of food on the table and on the floor. If you're looking for ambience better go elsewhere. But if you're looking for delicious food that is cheap, you have come to the right place. Try their famous fried chicken, fried oyster cake and kikiam.... More

Chicken does not need gravy/sauce. This is a humble Chinese-Filipino family restaurant that is oftentimes fullhouse. Yummy!

Thinking of dropping by Sincerity Cafe? Don't forget to order their signiture and very popular fried chicken! Warning, it is very addictive! Never tried anything else though, the chicken is enough for me to give it a 4 star rating

We were looking for a place to have a late lunch and i saw Sincerity which i heard of before and decided to try it. Place was full even at 2:30 pm but good thing people were finishing up already. Wait staff must have been tired by that time since they were less welcoming and were making mistakes already. Service... More

DON'T visit their branch in Lucky Chinatown Mall. Go to their original space along Nueva in Binondo. Dishes are way better tasting there than the former branch. We have been eating here for generations already, starting from my grandfather. Their fried chicken, oyster cake, ngo hiong (kikiam), special chami and duck misua soup are staples.

Their fried chicken is a must-try! And frog legs as well! Get a taste of authentic Chinese food with their oyster omellete, duck soup and Chinese fried rice.

Worst Restaurant I have ever been too. It's so bad it made want to write a review, to save people money and time. They did a good job on the decor and location. It looks high class, and the menu looked excellent with lots of choices. The staff are friendly and nice. Sadly the food leaves you feeling ripped off.... More

Tried their branch in Lucky Chinatown mall and the place is packed. Good thing we're first on the waiting list. We were then seated and we ordered the famous sincerity fried chicken, sincerity fried rice and a small serving of crab corn soup. With all the crab and corn soup I've tried in other restaurants beforr, this one stood out... More
