I was very happy with my experience at Chibog! We started with some cocktails, we ordered the Calamansi Smash and the Pinoy Old Fashion, and they were awesome! We ordered most of the items on the menu, like the Shanghai Spring Rolls, Chibok bok, Pork Sisig, Kare Kare, Adobong PakPak, but my favourite of the night was the Crispy Pata! that was extremely delicious, it had the correct amount of seasoning and a nice cripsy crunch to the skin. Thumbs up to the chefs! I was also very pleased with the waiters and waitress that night, they were very helpful and attentative to our needs. They were also surprised us with ice-cream and candles for my mum's birthday, and a free shot to end the night! I highly recommend anyone that's looking for a place to try filipino food, head to Chibog and you won't be disappointed. I'm definitely coming back again.

Omg i am so happy i got to try your food! Just about two hours before lockdown. So happy with the service and the food. Threw my calorie restriction out the window. Definitely coming back after lockdown. Worth the long journey from frankston south! Fingers crossed the grilled squid will be available again

Love the food! But I think they need to add a bit more on the menu. Otherwise, definitely coming back for more.

Great to see young Filipino entrepreneurs having a go and coming out strong through the pandemic. The vegan okoy and tofu sisig were tasty. I look forward to having more plant based dishes and desserts on the menu! We'll come back to support your business. Mabuhay ang Pilipino!

We took clients here for a work dinner and they absolutely loved it. (We did also, of course!) Seriously delicious food and a great selection of drinks. Wonderful service as always.

Loved the food and the service, the staff were very friendly and attentive. Music was a bit loud for a Sunday lunchtime. Portions could be bigger considering the price.

Food is delicious, great homage to Filipino food. The 2 cocktails were great pairings to the meal. Will be great to have at least 1 gluten free dessert option.

I noticed the entrance door was too close to customer's tables. I wouldn't enjoy my dining experience if the entrance door was close to my table and waiting guests looking at my table. It looked really squashed. Overall the quality of food & service was excellent

All the food we ordered was good. Could be slightly bigger servings for the price. Crispy pata was fantastic! Crunchy outside and juicy inside, perfect. Kare Kare meat was tender, falling off the bone, flavours were good. Service was a bit slow, but forgivable as the host is very friendly.

Thank you for the opportunity to provide feedback. Firstly, I really appreciate that as a Filipino run business, the food was served quickly and are presented nicely. Your business is a good way to introduce our filipino food in a proper restaurant and professional environment. I generally enjoyed it. If I was to say something to improve the overall experience, with the pricing, it would be appreciated if the servings are slightly more (not too much that it changes the status level). I would also like to see Chibog expanding the space for dining (if that is all possible) - maybe the backyard? Have the AlFresco dining feeling. It could be that dining is at the back and Bar only at the front? It would also be good if when you are unable to answer the phone, that it has a message or something to allow the callers to know that calls will be returned. Sorry for the 10 million calls I left. I would love to see Chibog flourish and be the place I could recommend for any celebrations. And maybe some Pina Colada added to your cocktails :-) I think that's it

Bigger bowls please. Stuffing that delicious kare kare meat in a smaller bowl + rice was a bit hard to manage. Also offer an extra bowl for bones and lime wedges where we can place it after use :). Other thank thank you! Finally a decent Filipino friends that I can take my non filipino friends

It was a great night but you need some soft furnishings to dampen the noise levels from other diners. Thanks.
