Not good at all and not example of Filipino Food 2/4/2010

I would give this place a negative 5 stars if I could cause it is so embarrassing to Filipinos. Gold Ribbon is a dump because it be so much more if the owners had any pride. I come from a large Filipino family that has been in Houston since the 80's and I am an accomplished Filipino Foodie. The decor is a throw back to 70's/80's and is quite tacky - don't bring a date. They have buffet which they let food sit until it is gone, which means it can sit there the whole day. They cheap out on ingredients and is not very top quality more like Food Town quality. The cooks are not Filipino they are migrant workers. Its more of a mom and pop operation than one actively managed by a real chef. The food is filipino but not representative of the best recipes more like street food. At least street food is fresh - let me reiterate the food is not fresh. Go to Los Angeles, CA to see what real Filipino food is suppose to be. Pros: Location, Can buy filipino movies and CDs Cons: Decor ,tastes bad, expensive, and food not fresh more

Could be better. 9/5/2006

This Pinoy joint has been around for awhile (surprisingly). If you like greasy food, this is your kind of place. Looking at the food, you can almost feel the grease clogging your arteries. Then again, that's typical of most Filipino dishes - fried or swimming in grease. The spread is buffet style and the menu changes everyday. Amongst the regular offerings are chicken adobo, pansit bihon/canton, apritada (beef or pork or chicken), sinigang etc. Again, all are pretty tasty but very greasy. Their vegetable offering is typical of Filipino food - if you acquired the taste for it, you may just enjoy it; otherwise, the vegetable are always overcook(again, it's typical of Filipino dishes).\r \r Overall, if you're Filipino, you surely would enjoy their food. If you're not, well it could be a pleasant experience or a forgettable one. Pros: inexpensive, all you can eat Cons: greasy food, tacky decoration (i.e. imagine Christmas decoration still up all year round) more

User review by myra72 12/9/2005

Overall food taste good, at times oily.. they need to work on customer service.. bit snobbish.. we bought their siopao, quite disappointed with the filling, almost nothing inside-mostly bread..hope they can improve it. thanks. more

filipino food the Bee Gees -- paradise! 12/11/2002

Really fantastic buffet featuring pretty authentic filipino food, and the magic of Mongolian barbeque, plus a great bakery (with great prices). But the best part is the ambience: Christmas lights all year, wacky music (last time I was there it was the Bee Gees), a dance floor, and part of the menu is in (what I think is) Tagalog. I thought it was wonderful. Pros: inexpensive, variety, unusual more
