As I was searching for a nice place to gather my friends for my 30th Birthday celebration, I came across Hot Palayok’s name. Looking through the photos and reviews in its Facebook page, there are a lot of positive reviews and well-presented photos from fellow kababayans. I was enticed and finally decided to call them to book.
I was greeted warmly on the phone by one of their representatives and the process was easy as they had only asked me a couple of questions, primarily on the number of guests and the time as they are always full of customers. They also require a deposit fee for 5 or more guests.
On the day of the celebration, an additional guest had confirmed his attendance which I wasn’t able to add on my initial booking. Luckily, and this I would say separates Hot Palayok from the rest, is how they handle customer service (aside from serving delicious food!) They handle my request professionally and asked me to wait and be seated as soon as a table has been vacated. Special shout out to sir Edgar for being patient and understanding.
Now let’s talk about food. We love to eat, aren’t we? Being Pinoys who find comfort in deliciously cooked home-grown meals, we would know instantly know if a restaurant will be on our go-to list. Hot Palayok will definitely be one of them. Why? Because they have a wide-spread of Filipino dishes prepared freshly. You will find varieties of Pinoy dishes from meat, fish, vegetable, rice to desserts like cakes, fruits, ice creams and a lot more!
You will also love the interior of this place. It will give you a homey-Pinoyish vibe and decors that resonates Filipino culture.
They have a huge party hall that can accommodate 40-50 guests which is perfect if you are looking for a party venue such as parties, baptism, even wedding venue!
Hot Palayok truly deserves a thumbs up as one of the hottest Filipino restaurants in Dubai, it is a place where you can celebrate special occasion or simply dine whenever you find in the middle of pinoy food cravings.
