This restaurant is located in MARINA MALL near the Cebu Mactan airport. I took a walk for 15~20 min. And I don't recommend that. The way to get here is not easy for a normal tourists. There are many restaurants with ridiculous prices in Cebu. And this is one of few with appropriate costs. And with even good tastes. I... More

What I love here is their food and accomodations ... The utensils make you feel like you're in an actual chinise restaurant. The food is nice and surely they are fresh cooked. What I don't like is the space. We'll I'm talking about the Chowking at Marina Mall .. There are limited of seats thats why you will wonder why... More

The Chow King menu has Sweet and Sour Pork Lauriat. Yet they rarely have it. I wonder if anyone manages these places.

The usual fastfood but the place looks grimey. Also a bit slow here and staff talks to you in Cebuano if you look Filipino. Two floors, condiments area a bit neglected, too crowded. Good for value meals. There are better Chowking branches, though.

As a secret fan of Americanized Chinese food, this place reminds me of home. But, this is not an authentic Chinese restaurant. Variety of Americanized Chinese food from Wonton Soup to Chow Mein to Dimsum, also has some Filipino foods. My wife loves the Halohalo and says it's the best. Also, very reasonably priced. Yes it tastes like Chinese take-out... More

I ate at several Choking restaurants in my travels, and the one in Mactan was the fastest of all of them. The food was inexpensive beyond my ability to articulate, It was wonderful, it was filling. I strongly recommend people try the Chow Pao's it will take two to fill up someone used to American value meals, but two of... More

The chain is owned by the same company as Jollibee, but it's a really different experience. All locations serve food on actual plates with real silverware. The portions are decent size (speaking as an American) and the cost is low. The highlight is dessert. The deluxe halo-halo is enough for two. For a foreigner, halo-halo initially looks like someone took... More
