Tasty Filipino comfort food, just like Grandma used to make, or possibly even better. Show up early for silog dishes; they run out pretty early in the day.

Love that this place is so close to home! Our family has been swinging by this place to buy combo meals on the go and we have never been disappointed. We ordered several dishes for Christmas Eve and the kids loved the food! Cracking chicken, Laing, Lumpia Shanghai, escabeche (personal favorite!), turon, kare kare, Sisig and pancit! When we arrived to pick up our meal, we were advised that our turon was freshly being made and to help us, they delivered to our home...so that we didn't have to wait...they delivered as promised and we were not disappointed.  We were also able to pay easily using Venmo which was totally convenient. We plan to be back again! Thank you to owner who was so nice and helpful! Much appreciated! More...

Ok so I'm not Filipino, but this place is soooo good!!! I've been to other Filipino places before and they don't do this place justice! !! I mean it really tastes homemade and the folks who take care of you are soo nice and welcoming! I had the chicken skewer, beef stew, pancit, and lumpia. They were all very good and cooked to perfection. It all tastes very fresh as well which is a big plus :) I'm very satisfied with the visit I Took here and will be coming back for more! Also they're very clean! God bless they're hardworking hands More...

We ordered 3 half trays - pancit, lumpia and crackling chicken for a party and it was a huge hit! All of our guests were asking where the food was from, and one of our friends who is Filipino could not stop commenting about how good the food was (just like mom's cooking), and that it was so delicious she could cry! ! The Turo team were super responsive ahead of us ordering the food, and it was a breeze to pay (Venmo in advance) and pick up on the day. Fantastic food and customer service, we will definitely be back again - whether it's for catering or a meal just for me :) More...

It reminds me of when mom would cook with her sisters and brothers and all the kids would chow down, during lunch or dinner. Generous portions. Quality over quantity and this place definitely has it. The food is amazing and authentic. 5 stars it's not greasy compared to other places. I like the chicken bbq sticks, pancit and pork sisig the most. Their lumpia's are crispy and meaty. Clean food. However, it's on a busy street and parking can he difficult. If you'd like to try good Filipino food. I recommend this spot hands down. More...

I just moved to SF this weekend and through all the crazy moving madness, I tried to look for a quick Asian bite around my area. Found this gem only 5 min away from my house and I can confidently say this will be my go-to Filipino food spot in my new neighborhood. I was greeted by Roniel and Chuck who were the sweetest and most welcoming! Amazing people, delicious food, and affordable prices. Nothing can beat that! This is my second time visiting in 3 days I've lived here and I will definitely be back! More...

Food is great. Drink possible of too sweet. Price is good price. If you see a lady that is taking your order. You might have to repeat yourself. Can forget your order, misheard what you are say example: I heard the kid said French fries, but her scoop fried rice. Drinks are little weird but it can be Philippine style. More...

We ordered catering from Turo for my mom's retirement party and the food was a hit! Beef mechado, crackling chicken, ginataan gulay, sweet and sour fish, and rice. By the end of the party most of the food was gone because everyone loved it. Their service is great too - I had to make a few changes to my initial order and they accommodated my requests and promptly responded to all emails. Thanks Turo! You guys are awesome :) More...

Sure...figures, now that we're no longer living near this area, there's a new Filipino place! We discovered their food at Pistahan.  Epic lumpia! We had to find their spot.  Food = delicious. Lumpia = hard to stop eating. We got 30 for ourselves and 20 to share with a friend. Beef caldereta = delicious.  I'm hoping to find mechado here some day...hint, hint.Tortang Talong = awesome. I have a hard time cooking eggplant so I'm happy to have someone do it better! Laing = his favorite but I wasn't into it - because I'm not into coconut and spinach. BBQ Pork Stick = perfectly sweet and sticky sauce. Prices = reasonable.  Our meal with extra leftovers came out to under $40.  Service = counter.  They're super friendly.  And they do catering!Parking = a few spots out front.  Look for parking by the school if you can...

Went on a lunch date with my sister on wednesday and ordered 2 popcorn chicken bowls, one chicken stick and some drinks. Very delicious! Today I send my sister to order popcorn chicken bowls and she comes back with what they call 'popcorn chicken'. It was literally chicken nuggets that tasted like they were from Mc.Donalds. I was craving some of those delicious little balls of goodness today. Edit: I'm sorry if I sounded harsh here or rude. I was just stating my opinion. More...

A hidden gem for a solid filling meal on a budget. Let's start with the tired old phrase, "I'm not even a big fan of Filipino food. "But alas, it is true. Well actually, it's not. I just don't dig one dish in particular- it's made with blood. Can you blame me?Pancit is a mix of canton noodles and bihon noodles. The bbq stick is huge and sweet. The deep fried eggplant, menudo and apritada are all finger-licking deliciousness. And this is worth noting- the coffee is hot and delicious. The service is great and the bathrooms are clean. This establishment is a refuge from the cruel world to enjoy a hot coffee with a hot plate lunch, and catch up on the news channel during those blustery foggy days. Just a hop from bart, and you're in heaven. More...

Tried a pop-up Filipino place that just served to remind me how good this place is. Location is under new ownership and theyve done a great job revamping this place. Combo plates are great value. Faves are the pancit, milkfish, and lumpia (pefect for parties, call ahead if putting in a large order). Huge selection of items, the service is fast and very friendly. More...

I am very particular about Filipino food cooked from restaurants - I am extremely critical since I am Filipina who loves to cook Filipino dishes! Turo Cafe and Grill - I've literally tried mostly everything in their menu and let me tell you, they are the best! Every bite brings back memories when my Dad would cook Pork Menudo, Chicken Afritada, and Chicken Adobo - simply nostalgic. You know the feeling - when you are listening to a song from long ago and it simply brings you back to that instant moment, that emotion when you first listened to it, yes that feeling! Their Bi-Steak, I've always acclaimed that my Mom's is the best and my all time favorite, but Turo's... I feel like I'm cheating on my Mom's (hahaha). I call first before placing my order with Doordash - yes, they are on Doordash. Chuck, who sometimes answers the phone is very kind and informative! More...

I finally tried this spot at noon time today after I saw amazing reviews on Yelp. I initially wanted to try what I saw on the tray: Kare-Kare & Bistek Tagalog, but then deep down I was craving for SiLog even though it's noon time (I only had coffee this morning). I had the Eggplant Omelette & a side of Chorizo + fried rice + hot cocoa/milk.  Oh boy! It did hit the spot!!!  Food tastes good. Big servings (a bonus for foodies like me). Great customer skills. Another thing that impressed is me is that I saw other ethnic backgrounds aside from the Filipino based fans. There were Latinos, Whites & Blacks who appreciate the dishes served. And they ate a lot when I was there. I was so proud!I highly recommend this family owned local business. More...

I've never been, but my coworker ordered their lumpia Shanghai for a staff party and I could not stop popping these little delicacies in my mouth. I've been looking for a new spot to order lumpia at a reasonable price and I think I've found it.They even delivered it for her for a small fee. She also ordered a few turon and cut them in half for her, I think I had more than my fair share.Looking for place to cater my mom's party in the near future, I'm sure we will order their lumpia but we shall see what other things we might order. Will have to make a field trip soon. More...

I tasted their food for the first time at my neice's 1st birthday party this past weekend. My sister ordered 5 full trays: spaghetti, lumpia, pork bbq, pork sisig, and the crackling chicken. All 5 dishes were so good!! Above all, I recommend getting the crackling chicken. Their catering menu states that it is a "party favorite." I must say, it was definitely a party favorite this past weekend. I hope and look forward to stopping by the restaurant to try out more dishes! More...
