This place is small because they have so much customers everyday that it feels small inside once it's filled with people. Im surprised at how long they have been in business. Boy, I sure am glad I tried it. Long story short, I waited for over an hour. Having started as a brunch pop-up before going full-service brick-and-mortar, Maharlika maintains its weekend meal reputation with dishes like fried chicken and purple-tinted ube waffles, and mango-stuffed French toast.
I am a sucker for food, so any place that has fried anything I have to try. The decor is basic with dim lights. Good for music and drinks. I will drive here any day I crave it coming from Milpitas. I read another review about the sticky tables and yes it is true. The one in Maharlika is also delicious! Greasy, slimy with almost no flavor.
I was actually 45 minutes late for the agreed pick-up time, but they still waited for me. My arms stuck to the table too and there was fruit flies in the soy sauce. I took a picture of the receipt and as if it was my fault they misplaced the order. The quality of the food for the price? Recommend to remove some tables and add more chairs for people waiting this way the place has more space. The only thing about the chicken is that the pieces are kinda weird. I also paid in full when I picked it up. I perfetctly recall that I ordered broasted chicken by phone 3 weeks before my sons' first birthday coz I know i'ts really hard to reach this restaurant.
I went there last Friday and ordered to go, the lady did not give me a heads up that my order will take a while because they have large orders prior. This place hasn't changed in years, same slow service and not a friendly cashier. The restaurant itself has a drabby feel to it, but I normally just order to go. Named after an ancient Filipino warrior class, Maharlika takes diners on a modern crash course through Filipino street-food-inspired dining. Went on yelp and found this place. Parking is shared with an entire complex, making it so hard to find parking! Chicken was slightly cold but at least I didn't have to wait for it.
The lady that answered the phone was nice and accommodating. . Disclaimer: Always check with the business for pricing and availability of menu items. But if you do wish to have Indian food they will order from their other restaurants which are quite good. Reminds me of this place in the Philippines called Sunburst, which is well-known for their crispy chicken skins. It is true that they don't answer their phones because i called 5 times to make sure they were open before someone answered the phone. Those are sales, why can't she just answer and take orders?!? My arms stuck to the table.
A sibling of nearby -- and more casual -- Jeepney, the East Village restaurant emphasizes bold small plates like grilled chicken feet, battered Spam fries, and crispy chicken skins, the last of which is served as a complimentary starter. I called on a Wednesday afternoon to place an order for a medium party tray of broasted chicken for Sunday. As far as customer service. I was so happy that they did. I am a huge fan of broasted chicken grew up on it in the Midwest this is one of the best places that I've been to around the country and I've had it in many cities it's very crispy , very fresh cuts the chickens are healthy that they use. The food is good, especially the crispy fried chicken.
Maharlika-we always see this place on Adobo Nation show since they are a filipino food place, but we never have had the chance to try this place out. Yes, I agree the cashier is slow and does what she can but they can hire someone else that can take the order faster. The place is run by an elderly couple and they're usually busy and don't answer the phone. I can't break my cycle now! I will be back for sure! The place was quite full and booming with music and cheering crowd. The food is good, especially the crispy fried chicken. Went on yelp and found this place. It is true that they don't answer their phones because i called 5 times to make sure they were open before someone answered the phone.

That is the essence of being of Jeepney and being Filipino - its a vibe, a mode, and a symbol of uniqueness. That's how good it is. I went in and made an order for a party 2 weeks ahead of time and the day of they lost the order.
Definitely fried filipino-style, can't explain it, but you know it is. Just come in to the store and place your order, it comes out pretty quickly. And also maybe add an additional cook too. No one ever really dine in anyways, they take it home where the Rice is at. Filipinos took the left-over jeeps chopped them up and tricked them out, creating a vibe, a mode of transport and a symbol that is uniquely Filipino. Ordered a week in advance and had no issues with my order. The plaza where it is at might be full, so expect difficulty in parking since it is surrounded by other restaurants and such.
