Well the place is good and nice coz it is located in the heart of the City Corner Salazar and Zamora Streets. The place will only be fully loaded of the customers during lunch time and same is well accommodated in case to case basis, customers fall in line as well as the line to the Senior Citizens.

From Luzon, Visayas, Mindanao only here in Chowking Tacloban particularly in Zamora St. I experienced to pay 5 pesos for the disposable spoon. Not good for dine-in customer who wants to use disposable spoon and fork. Only in Chowking Zamora Tacloban.

Glad they're back in business despite their commissary out if commission so their menu is limited to fried items. It's your usual fast food reliable fare of Filipino Chinese food. The more tasty items with braised or sweet/sour sauce are not yet offered as mentioned. What gets my goat here is the rather tricky way they upsell to the pineapple... More

It's some kind of sort of maybe iffy Chinese-type, but not exactly. I'm nowhere near impressed, but it's a lot better than some of the other restaurants there...at least you can eat it without throwing up and you don't have to wait 30 minutes to get food after everyone else has theirs.

Went to Chowking Ormoc..asked the manager to clean the girl's washroom coz the floor had a "puddle'. It was very dirty. Also the floor around the fastfood was very dirty, fkies were all over. Had to call someone to clear the table coz the leftovers of the previous costumers were still there. But food was delicious. Cleaniness was very poor.

I have been to the Chowking in Ormoc a lot and the only reason I go is because my wife and kids like. The last time we went there we waited over 55 minutes and still no food, not sure what the problem was but the girl behind the counter keep saying our food will be there shortly. Finally I... More
