Last December I’ve dined at Todd English not by choice but by accident. My friend and I were supposed to have lunch at the newly opened NIU by Vikings but I was not able to procure a reservation online because I thought the branch will not be jam.packed unlike the other branches but I was terribly wrong, when we got there I was on the waiting list which is number 15, and the guests that made their reservation, some of them didn’t arrived yet, so we decided to leave and find another place to eat and we came acrossed Todd English.

By the moment that we got there, the concierge made us wait for two minutes because our table was getting prep up. The ambiance of the place is somewhat like an elitist but anyone is welcome here (: The waiter came to us and get our orders, they have friendly staff, always smiling at you, ohh. and the food here is quiet pricey but you get what you paid for.
My friend opted for coffee which is 90php and mine was pineapple juice which is 80phph.
