I really enjoyed brunch here. Food was really great! It was very loud though, hard to hear the person next to me. Also their open kitchen concept is really cool but you leave smelling like fried garlic. Would definitely go again though was a great meal.

Reservation was at 215, didn't get seated until 235 then didn't get our order taken until just before 3. We ordered a 2 hour bottomless brunch but only got to utilize one hour. Also, portion sizes are tiny, you can expect to leave hungry.

Went here for one of our two nights in NYC at the recommendation of a friend, and was not disappointed! We did the 5 course tasting menu and had so much food we had to pack some of it up. I would go back just to try more dishes. Also, coconut rice. Don't skip out on the coconut rice.

It was really loud in the back room. I could barely hear what my friends were saying so that put a social damper on the evening. My opinion on the food is biased because I’m Filipino so my judgment must be taken with a grain of salt. People at the restaurant were very nice.

Good time overall. No tasting menu unfortunately, but we created our own with 4 plates. The duck was highly recommended. Forgot to bring out our octopus so we ended up not getting it after all. Very loud atmosphere but we enjoyed that!

I’ve been here for dinner but decided to checkout their brunch. It did not disappoint! My boyfriend and I shared the corn beef hash dish and the ramen noodle with pork and fried anchovies. Both were so so good! We also did the bottomless mimosas. The white peach was my favorite and the lychee was good as well. For “dessert”, we each got a vietnamese coffee. It was also very delicious. The coffee was nice and rich in flavor

Everything was amazing, 5 stars. The only constructive criticism we can give is the ventilation was poor. I have asthma and it was hard to breathe. Other than that, it was outstanding!

Great food, particularly the adobo pork belly. One recommendation for the restaurant would be to have different tables. The large gaps in the table let my chopsticks fall through twice.

My boyfriend and I are foodies, we were looking for a unique dinner for our anniversary. We were especially interested in a tasting menu so we were thrilled when we found Pig & Khao. We had never tried Filipino food before and it was AMAZING. The tasting menu is incredible. We had a feast! The flavors were so unique and truly satisfied our desire to try something different. The coconut rice was INSANE I wish I had room to eat 20 more bowls. The service was excellent. Everyone was so attentive and made it a special experience. We definitely want to go back for more! If you like crispy pork and cilantro, this is the place for you.

Food was excellent, couldn’t fault it. Very tasty.

We were a party of 5 and at the time of booking online had asked for the tasting menu they couldn’t accommodate us but didn’t tell us this until we got there. The other thing that they didn’t tell us was that there was a booking after us so they were in a hurry to get us out. These things are ok, not accommodating a request or having second seatings but I think it would have been courteous to notify our party at the time of booking. The other slightly annoying thing was the music which seemed to get louder and louder, wasn’t sure if it was a restaurant, bar or club.

Everything was wonderful from coffee to start meal to leechee mimosas to end brunch. The only issue was that plates ordered arrived separately. My friend received her meal first and it was quite some time before my food arrived to the table. It would have been helpful to have been informed that there would be a delay in one of the dishes, and to have been given the option to bring food out separately or together. Other than that food was delish!!!!

We were super excited to eat here after seeing the owner on the Food Network. I made a reservation for 3:15. When we arrived we were told that they were closed/closing at 3:30 and would reopen for dinner at a later time. What?! I told them that I had a reservation, and we were reluctantly seated. We had to order our food immediately. I would like to say it was a great meal, but we really didn’t have time to enjoy it. The flavors were good, but it just wasn’t the best. I’m not sure why they offered a reservation right before closing up. If we hadn’t made the trip downtown especially to eat here I would not have stayed. Also, be warned that weekend brunch offers bottomless mimosas. I could tell that most of the other patrons had been taking advantage of this offer because it was LOUD. I’m not sure if I would make the effort to go there again.

If I can give this place more than 5 stars I would. I don't live in NY anymore but always make it a point to go when I'm in town. The food has a ton of flavor, it's creative, well balanced, the pork belly adobo will change your life.

Great bottomless mimosas & amazing food! Really enjoyed everything we tried: khao soi, banx xeo, and the papaya salad. We tried the lychee, mango, and white peach mimosas. I liked all 3 but personal favorite was the white peach.
