Filipiniana offers curious native art, beautiful framed dioramas, and detailed sketches depicting Philippine life circa 1800-1900s. Ample space holds around ten tables in the front area (an equal number towards the back) and is well-lit. The food is scrumptious, though service can be a bit slow: I suggest ordering an appetizer or two. An extensive menu offers many mouth-watering delicacies, most of them not vegan-friendly and some dishes (especially Crispy Pata) require manual dexterity. Portions are hearty. I hear they offer Sunday AYCE (all you can eat) buffet - that's excellent news! I went with my family on a Saturday evening and found the experience to be pleasant and worth repeating. I don't know if there are many Filipino cuisine restos in Chicago; but this place I'll recommend going back to.
Pros: yummy hearty portions, ample space, lighting
Cons: , meat in most dishes
