If you are looking for a fancy looking place, that can serve Chinese and/or Filipino Cuisines, can accommodate more than a handful of people, got other facilities (perhaps a KTV) and located just within Manila, well you are reading the right article.
Ashark Club just recently opens its doors to the public. This newest topnotch dining place, with world-class, state-of-the-art restaurant and entertainment club is located right at the center of the most luxurious hotel and leisure spots in the city – at the 2nd floor of Golden Phoenix Hotel in Manila. Ashark Club combines the best in Chinese-Filipino cuisine, KTV entertainment, and the finest event facilities in the country. (Check out: Silent Party at Phoenix Hotel)

I was able to visit the place on its opening date last June 28, 2017. Along with other bloggers, influencers and VIP guest, we were able to experience what a fancy Chinese-Filipino feast is all about. On our very long lunch we had some Marinated OX Shank, Deep-Fried Juglans Regia, Assorted Vegetables With Salad, Abalone With Mixed Dry Seafood In Thick Soup, Deep-Fried Pigeon, Steamed Red Grouper With Peanut Oil, Deep-Fried Pechay, Sauteed Snow Diced Beef With Black Pepper, Assorted Vegetables on Ice, Sauteed Prawns With Long Jing Tea, Pan-Fried Lamb Chop, Polonchay With Wanton In Soup, Fried Rice With Salmon and Fresh Fruit Platter.
Among the long lists, I personally enjoyed Marinated OX Shank, Assorted Vegetables With Salad Sauteed Sauteed Prawns With Long Jing Tea and Snow Diced Beef With Black Pepper. Aside from what we tasted here are some of the food choices you can try on at Ashark Club.
Ashark Club has employed masters in the world of gastronomy—hailing from China, a pristine pool of chefs have developed the best in Cantonese, Hunan, and Sichuan cuisine, with a menu expanding to cover the most delectable Filipino dishes as well. We had a chance to roam around and visit the kitchen where we found these live fishes (see the photos below). True enough to what they say, there are real sharks inside this restaurant. Will it be served on our table? (kidding!)
But there is definitely more to Ashark Club than its extensively satisfying menu—the venue is hub to first-class, state-of-the-art event rooms and facilities that provide an innovative modern entertainment experience.
Ashark Club features four (4) KTV rooms with modern sound systems and larger-than-life screens, as well as seven (7) VIP & Conference Rooms with spaces that cover as much as 200 people. With a total land area that amounts to around 1600㎡, Ashark Club is currently top standard among all Chinese clubs in the metro.
Ashark Club takes its name from an actual live shark housed in the venue — a symbolism to fine food and an aggressively modern aesthetic. The club caters to dining enthusiasts, families big and small, companies in need of conference and event venues, wedding organizers or couples in search of a reception hall, and anyone looking to relax, unwind and enjoy the company of friends and a full leisure experience. Ashark Club is located at the 2nd level of Golden Phoenix Hotel, Pasay, Metro Manila.
