Second time coming - the food is so delicious. We were slow to get our drinks in the beginning but they were busy so it’s understandable. Fun vibe before going out.
Food was amazing and very flavorful. Each dish has its own character and can stand on its own. We got the pork belly adobo, khao soi, coconut rice, Hainanese duck, and sisig. All dishes were perfect, and the Hainanese Duck was enhanced by the duck fat rice underneath it. Go for family style so everyone can try a bit of everything.
My fiancé and I have been wanting to go here for way to long but life kept getting in the way. It was worth the wait, the food was absolutely delicious. Some advice which we were given by our super helpful server: the “small plates” are NOT small so if you want to get a taste of everything either go when they offer the tasting menu or go with a group of 4-6 to order and share a bunch of plates. The only I’d say oddity we encountered was the order in which the plates came out we ordered two small plates and 1 larger and the large plate came out second instead of last. We assume this was a decision by the kitchen due to the food ordered but not sure why. It didn’t impact our enjoyment at all and thought everything was amazing. Already have recommended this place to multiple friends and plan on going back.
Food is delicious, but be warned- some dishes are super spicy that are not at more traditional Filipino restaurants. Service was super efficient with multiple servers making sure you get everything you need.
Best to go with at least a party of 4, so you can try as many dishes as possible. There was only 2 of us, so we did not have enough room in our belly to try more dishes.
Pork Belly Adobo- AMAZING!
The best part of our dinner was service: attentive, prompt, courteous. This is a very casual spot with an open kitchen. Be prepared to wash your entire outfit because you will smell like the kitchen!
The worst was the ambiance: diners aren’t there to listen to music but it’s blaring so loud you have to raise your voice to hear each other. I love rap but it is meant to be listened to in a different environment.
Food was ok but nothing special. Baby back ribs were excellent, the best part of our meal, but they were drenched in sauce. Hold back most of the sauce and they’d be perfect! Ribs came with lemongrass slaw which tasted a bit too sour and was drenched in sauce. I saw line cooks literally squeezing portions of slaw in their hands to get rid of the sauce, and it was still too wet when it was presented at the table. (What’s up with drowning food in sauces here?!). The rest of the food was along the same lines - ok but nothing special.
1. Lambrusco comes in a can.
2. Bathroom faucet is set very high. Turn it up very slowly or you’ll get spayed!
Food is always great here!
I have been here twice before and had great experiences both times. This time around was unfortunately disappointing. One entree came out ~10 minutes after everyone else’s, the vegetable curries were served lukewarm, and the ice cream was quite literally soup by the time it arrived to us. Likely will not be returning :(
Waiter was rather rude and rushed us even though it was relatively empty. We tried to come for the last day of restaurant week, but they said 3:15 was too late even though brunch is served until 4
the food was so good the service was quick and friendly. im still thinking about that pork belly cant wait to try the rest of the menu
Meh. Ok flavors. Fishy tasting fish. My wife barely ate anything as she thought the flavors, texture and overall appeal was lacking. I ate most of our meal and later had an upset stomach. Total bust. Service was borderline. Def. a skip...
Outstanding food! Great vibe. Great music. And fun bars in the area for before or after, especially The Burglary across the street (and Garfunkel's upstairs).
We came here for a brunch meet-up, and the noise level was higher than we expected. However, we added a person a few days before, and they were able to accommodate us, which was a nice touch. The food was tasty, and I would be keen to return to try other things on the menu.
Ok food and small portions, expecting a lot more flavor.
I came here for restaurant week and the food and service I got was worth the $42 dinner. My waiter gave me recommendations based on my preferences, and even suggested against ordering the vegetable curry since I'm not vegetarian. The menu is mostly pork, so it's not a great place for vegetarians! Otherwise, for meat-eaters, it's a tasty menu. I'd definitely come back to try their regular menu.
Service was slow, but the food was amazing
Staff were very inattentive and constantly forgot to bring our food or check on us. Feel the food is good but overpriced. Music is super loud so can be hard to hear each other. We were seated near the entrance which wasnt ideal as it lets in a draft despite a storm door. Likely wouldn’t return or recommend
The food at Pig & Khao did not disappoint. I was very impressed with the bold flavors. Each dish had its unique blend of sweet and spice.
Food is ok flavor-wise; some dishes are too sweet. Service feels rushed.
Asked for hot water from two waiters and asked one of them again and they kept saying yes and then ignoring me. Super rude. The food is amazing but don’t expect much from the waitresses.
Upon arrival service was fine. Throughout the course of the meal the music became louder and louder. We were seated in the back area which is just a covered patio with head lamps. The draft was rather heavy.
Overall value for resturant week was great. Food had amazing flavor and desserts were great.
Definitely worth it, don’t see myself going back. One time deal.
Cool vibes, Great staff- from bus to wait to chefs to host—- food was Delicious!!!
Server was just a little ‘too cool’
The service is on point. Good job to the staff that night who were attentive, but also knew when to chill and let you enjoy your visit. The restaurant is a tad loud; I get the vibe they are going for, but I could barely hear my friend.
The Pork Belly Adobo was the best dish we had that night. Juicy and crispy. The sauce was great
The Sizzling Sisig was a good second dish. I don't like spicy food, but I found this manageable.
I wouldn't get the Khao Soi again, needed a bit more flavor.
Asian waiter threw the check on our table after we told her the original check was incorrect. Food was not that good and wasn’t worth price.
Pig and Khao is a great value for the LES and some of the better food I've had in the area. A must for any hip-hop fan, too, as the shop seems to pride itself on the music selection.
Staff were horrible. Very rude, pretentious, made it like they’re doing you a favor. I had a woman employee who wasn’t even my waitress bash me in the shoulder with a plate and for a second time knock my purse down on the floor. I understand people accidentally bash into each other but sorry would’ve gone a long way. You need to hire nice pleasant people here who appreciate their customers and not treat them like trash.
Every dish was amazing
As soon as I walked in the door I was overwhelmed with the smell of fish sauce. Great! The food was delectable and the service was 80% slow. Definitely come here.
Table for one please! Oh wait I can sit at the bar and watch them cool?! I’ll take that seat please. Pleasant staff on a Sunday morning in January. Cool 90’s rap music playing over the surround sound. Going simple today. Pork Sisig & Lychee Mimosa. Delicious. Flavor, tender & crispy all in one bite 1-5-2020
Great food. Good service. My favorite special occasion dinner spot in the Lower East Side.
Always a great time here!! Drinks are fantastic, food is always on point, and service is dope. love, Love, LOVE!!
Excellent food,the atmosphere is really cool and price is very reasonable but I was a little upset with the service which may have just been my server,I would definitely go back again.
Great restaurant with amazing food!! They were blaring rap music, so definitely more of a younger crowd spot. Highly recommend
Great food - loved the whole fish, octopus and halo halo! Just music very loud
best brussel sprouts in all of NYC. Steak was awesome and love that coconut rice!! yum yum yum
Food is out of this world! Love this place.
Food, service and loud rap music - fabulous.
Focal green wall w drywall chunks scraped out from chairs- just looks so bad and that the attention to detail lacking.
Staff used to wear their own clothes - cool street style, now they wear sad branded tees. Womp womp.
Great food, good atmosphere
