I had a great experience dining at Barkada. The food was amazing especially the sliders! Price was very reasonable and the service was great. We had a party of about 10 people and the servers were able to keep up with us. Ambience was trendy and restaurant was very clean which are definite plus in my books. I'd definitely come back if I'm in the area.

We were a group of 4 and ordered a variety of plates to share including the sisig lumpia, baos, sliders and crispy tofu. My favorites were the baos followed by the sisig lumpia. We finished off the meal with the ube dessert which was a little misleading as the waitress told us that it was actually taro. That was a little bit of a let down as ube and taro have distinct flavours and we were really looking forward to having ube. Nevertheless, the taro ice cream was good although the scoops were too small and there was too much of the other components on the dish. The ambiance of the restaurant is nice however it was very quiet for a Saturday night as we were the only table seated at 8 pm.

Barkada has yet to secure a liquor license. Food is great as was service and ambience so it is a great deal as you can bring your own alcohol. We arrived at Barkada and found the place very quiet at 8pm on a friday nite. Guessing that lack of alcohol kept away the crowds. We were delighted with cuisine including deep fried Tofu. sauteed shrimp and other yummy dishes. Check it out and BYOB

Jay was incredibly warm and hospitable, checking in with each and every guest. The food was amazing--garlic noodles and the vegetarian tapas were delish, loved the hip hop music that was being played from turntables. Awesome Fil-Am fusion food from a family owned restaurant--highly recommend!

Went for brunch with some friends. Should preface by saying we're Filipino and very familiar with the cuisine. I had the eggs benedict with shredded pork adobo and it was delicious. It came with roasted potatoes which were decent, and I also ordered a side of tapa which was prepared perfectly. We also ordered the spam sliders which were delicious as well. For dessert, we had a sampler plate of the ube ice cream and fried bananas. All extremely tasty. The chef also cooked up a plate of lumpia for my high-maintenance friend which we were very grateful for doing so. They were very good and I think could be added to the brunch menu just to show off the chef's talents. Will definitely be going back for dinner!

We had a wonderful time! It was a Filipino tapas style and one of our favorites were the short rib trifecta of mechado, kare kare and adobo. For dessert, the Taro/Ube three repeat was delicious. We'll definitely be back again!

Excellent food. Creatively authentic conjuring of familiar Filipino cuisine flavors and textures. The meal brought together the experience of coming from the Philippines, then living in Los Angeles, with eyes and senses open to the world.

The food here is so good! I grew up eating Filipino food and I can vouch for the food here! It's an interesting way to experience the flavors of this cuisine, as its tapas style. Filipino food can be a little greasy and fatty, but they use premiuim quality ingredients. It's a really fun vibe too, big booths. There's a stage so perhaps sometimes they have live entertainment. They're probably going to add a bar in the near future and I can't wait! Great, friendly, helpful service too! Especially if you're not familiar with the cuisine, theyre very helpful! WILL go back!

We liked the food, unusual and delicious. However, the prices were high for very small portions. If they increase portion size, we will be back. Otherwise, high end prices for a strip mall eatery, not calling my name.
