First time to eat here. Ambiance is ok although a bit worn. No customers dining in, although their delivery staff seems quite busy. Half chicken at 200, rice at 30. Very affordable food. Chicken is more tender, gravy more flavorful than the classic savory version. Service is passable.

I grew up eating this chicken way back in the early '80s and it still tastes the same. This is classic comfort food for many who grew up in the '70s-'90s. Their first branch, established in 1950 in Escolta St in Manila, was gutted by fire recently. Hope they manage to restore it as it's already a historic structure. There's... More

We've been here (Shaw, Mandaluyong branch) twice already. One was last July 2015 when we celebrated my Lola's birthday then recently for a simple family dinner. Nothing beats their savory chicken. Perfect with their, of course, gravy but also with their yang chow friend rice or savory fried rice and lemon iced tea! One trivia I learned was they are... More

I've never actually stepped into the Mandaluyong branch. We ordered 7 whole chickens for an after office gathering. Chicken is consistently moist and soft all through the years, just as I remembered it. The gravy is the secret to its long staying power, filled with the essential chicken flavor. Of all the dishes served in the gathering, this is the... More

This is my favorite chicken since I was a young boy. Their food is better than Savory classic as the chicken is more tender and moist and the gravy sauce is tastier. Prices are just a bit more than Andoks. I'm not sure about this Timog branch though if its Original Savory. What I'm sure of is Escolta and San... More

Savory chicken has made a comeback in recent years as I vaguely remember it not being available for a pretty long time. The Original Savory Chicken serves food as I remember it as a child. Their nido soup, chicken asparagus and hototay soups are great. Plus the special pancit canton is the best match to their trademark chicken. Comfort food... More

Able to try their fried rice with lumpia shanghai (fried). Nice combination. I was able to consume everything. I was able to sample chopsuey too which was ordered by my head teacher. The sauce was just right, not too thick, and lots of vegetables. I had a hearty lunch and the place was not too crowded. The area was quiet... More

After our family bonding from Avilon ZOO, our bunch was really starving. A buffet would be perfect for our hunger but our pocket is just good enough for a simple meal. So it was truly a treat when we ate at Savory. Savory Chicken has not lost it's magic, it was just like when we were kids (70s born LOL).... More

I am not exaggerated about the chicken taste, its extremely ravenous. Well grilled and not too dried, I even ordered take-out the next day. I already put this restaurant on my favorite list in the town, and definitely will come back again soon. The fried rice, veggie and others just about the average, I also recommend to have a try...
