The Beef Teriyaki
Smile 2012-11-26

 

Out of all the Japanese stores in the Metro, Karate Kid has this special place in my heart because it lets me eat my favorite dishes with less the price. Compared to other Japanese places, they really give the value for your money. I always order the Beef Teriyaki because it always excited me to think that this is Teriyaki but beef. I love how Karate Kid manages to make the mix of flavors appetizing and delicious!

Potato Balls
Smile 2012-11-26

 

Potato Balls, Php 42.00

My niece has been a fan of potato balls. Whenever we are out at the mall and she doesn't want to eat rice, the easiest way is to buy her potato balls. Karate kid is one of the usual hang out for me and my sister. We like their food plus it's really cheap. We like their potato balls because of the tartar sauce that goes with it. Potato balls was prepared and rolled up to a breading was carefully fried giving you the full satisfaction of how potato should taste.

Karate Kid's Maki
Smile 2012-09-07

   Yum!

It was such a great experience dining at Karate Kid in Rob Manila. I was with friends when I went there and we enjoyed it a lot. We ordered the Spicy California Maki with cheese and I liked it a lot because it is uniqye. Next time I will be in Karate Kid in Rob Manila, I will be with my family. I will not miss this chance of taking them there to let them taste what I have tasted!

Karate Kid: Not so Japanice
Just OK 2010-10-13
Food:

Beef Teriyaki

A can give a thumbs up to the taste of their Beef Teriyaki (minus the rice and bean sprout) since it was cooked well and has a nice tasting teriyaki sauce. However, the meal has a very small serving portion, well what can you expect from a P99 worth of meal, but then again, two tablespoons of beef teriyaki is something unjustifiable. This was also paired with bean sprout that tasted like charcoal.

Chicken Teriyaki

Even my husband was unhappy with his meal. He said that the chicken teriyaki doesn't taste like teriyaki at all. The taste of teriyaki sauce is nowhere to be found, it seems like it was only a plain, ordinary grilled chicken that was not even marinated.

Location:

Their establishment at Rob Ermita is actually under renovation, so some part of it were covered with plywood and the installation of floor tiles are not yet finished. It is air conditioned with a cozy ambiance due to its lighting effect.

Service:

I can't argue with their good service for they have served our orders really fast, and the happy disposition of their crews are plus points.

A little bit different from so Japanice!
Smile 2010-06-27
Karate Kid is a fresh new Japanese fast food chain in the metro today. It's perfect for those who would like to sample a different set of Jap menu other than the famous Tokyo Tokyo.

Their california maki (P69 for 8 pieces) is decent and gyoza (P35 for 3pieces) is tasty. Good value for your money. I now prefer Karate Kid than the usual So Japanice food. Potato balls (P25) for 3 pieces is a steal. Last year when I visited the Rob Place branch, they had korokke (P35). It is similar to the French croquette. Korokke is made by mixing cooked chopped meat, seafood, or vegetables with mashed potato or white sauce, rolling it in wheat flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs, then deep frying this until brown on the outside. I'm not sure if it's still on their menu, though. It's not in the other Karate Kid branches here in Makati. I'm not so fond of their Kido Punch tea. It tastes like they've put some drops of cough syrup in.

I think Daniel San will agree that Karate Kid will satisfy every kid's hunger for Japanese taste.

Kickin' your appetite@ Karate Kid
Smile 2010-05-13
Our barkada's favorite cuisine is Japanese food. We usually hangout at Robinson's Ermita for a Jap and we often given discounts since we dine-in more often at their restaurant.

My favorite is Gyudon, a Japanese dish consisting of a bowl of rice topped with beef and onion simmered in a mildly sweet sauce flavored and is topped with a raw egg. I love its taste plus you can request for another rice since it is unlimited.

One factor that I didn't like much in Karate Kid is their iced tea. It tastes like cherry-flavored Tempra Forte. Awww!

Nonetheless, Karate Kid will kick your appetite!
