“Slow Service”

It's been a year probably since we've been to Tribu. They've improved the place and decor. The tables are big and could accommodate big families. They're not flimsily made.

There was a band that was setting up. Maybe that's their special on Saturdays. Not sure. They have several TVs and one projection screen.

Our only concern is the very slow service. There was about 3-4 tables that were occupied but only one server taking orders. There were several others doing something else. Good thing there was a basketball game going on to keep us occupied.

When they finally served the food, they we're swimming in oil.

Nice place to go with family and friends to taste Filipino food. Their lumpia and adobo is very good. I personally like their lunch specials since it includes rice, etc. My husband loves their longonisa.

Halo halo was the best! We ordered the grilled pompano but to our dismay, it was still pink and raw, we couldn't wait for it's replacement as we were done eating, so we just cancelled the order. Pork sisig was good, and so with the ginataang kalabasa. There was a birthday party function going on, and the service became so slow as they were serving the guests at that party. They served popcorn while we waited for our order. Good thing we arrived after 5 pm, and the place wasn't busy yet, thus our orders came right away, but as son as the guests for the party arrived, service arrived much slower. Other guests were noticeably annoyed and became impatient.

We recently visited this restaurant on our last trip to the bay area and was pleasantly surprised at how tasty and well prepared the foods were. It was one of our friend's birthday and we ordered crispy pata, sinigang pork, binagoongan rice bowl, daing na bangus, chicharon bulaklak, whole fried chicken, and pinakbet. All of the entrees were delicious and the servings were large portions. The price was not bad at all. Then we ordered brazo de mercedez as our dessert and astonished at the presentation. It was really heavenly as described by my cousins. Then the server came out with a bottle of champagne with fireworks before the end of our meal which made the birthday celebrant feel important. The band started playing around 9 p.m. and that was the only thing that I would consider as average. All in all, this is a pretty good restaurant and I would recommend this place to anybody homesick for some Filipino home cooking. It is located by the 880 freeway - by Alvarado exit.
