Celebrating the "Mabuhay" Spirit with Authentic Filipino Cuisine 

Welcome to our restaurant and please feel at home.

CASA manila features authentic Filipino signature recipes made from scratch, freshly cooked, with vegetarian and gluten free options. CASA manila’s culinary philosophy is called “Nature to Nurture”. Simply put, the least we tamper with Mother Nature’s goodness, the more our food will nurture our bodies. We do not use MSG, artificial ingredients or processed food and reduce the use of salt and oil without compromising the authenticity of family style, home cooking. We locally source our poultry and meat and use sustainable seafood represented in our regional and colonial recipes. Filipino food is a blending of cultural influences derived from its fascinating history as well the indigenous ingredients found in the over 7100 islands which makes up the Philippines.

CASA manila restaurant’s interior decor expresses the diversity of the Filipino cultural mosaic. Representing the tribal past, the tropical setting, the Spanish colonial history and even a hint of the brief American colonization, the original artwork and furnishings transports you to the Philippines as soon as you walk through the door. Set in the heart of GTA, between the 2 major highways, nestled in North York, ample free parking is available for your convenience.

CASA manila’s Kamayan, our most popular hand to mouth, communal dining replicates a tribal theme which the Toronto Star has called “Filipino feast at CASA manila is hands-on fun. It’s an Instagram worthy spread, impressive in scope and colour.”

CASA manila embodies the Mabuhay Spirit which means “Welcome and long live! “. Even when the restaurant is full, the team is eager to make you feel welcome with their hospitality as well as the wholesome food which is made with a passion to express the goodness Filipino cuisine.

 My Mom is a very picky eater and she ate alot at this place. That has a lot to say about this restau when we were in rhe car with the fam everyone was still talking about how good the food was! And our family is a big foodie. The service was amazing too...
I highly recommend this place especially the kamayan - Facebook May 2016

I've been a Yelp member since 2012, thought it was about time to write my first review. We went to Casa Manila for dinner and was pretty impressed. It was our first time eating here. The food was delicious, but it was the service that really stood out. Had a fantastic time, and will return again and again. - Yelp -April 2016

My husband and daughter are very selective when it comes to trying authentic cuisine. We visited family in Toronto and my sister brought us to Casa Manila. Looking at the restaurant from the outside, you wouldn't imagine that it will be nice inside. As soon as we entered the premises, we felt right away that we found a hidden gem. We were greeted by the staff with smiles and the owner Mila Guidote entertained us warmly when my sister told her that we were visiting from Virginia. We love the ambiance of the restaurant and when our food was served we were all very silent enjoying the authentic flavor of the Filipino cuisine. My daughter was thrilled given an extra bag of popcorn to go. I would highly recommend Casa Manila if you want to taste real Filipino cuisine. Thanks Mila and to your wonderful staff. - Tripadvisor -April 2016

I had my daughter's first birthday party here and could not have been more happier. I'm tremendously impressed by the food, their servers and the restaurant's set-up. The food was all good especially their Kare-Kare. The lechon was great. My guests kept on commenting that the food was really good to the point that they asked me how much I paid for the party. I would celebrate any occasion here again then going to another Chinese buffet. The price I paid was totally worth it! Casa Manila's even coordinator was very helpful and made it stress-free for me. If you like Filipino food, I would highly recommend Casa Manila. - Google -April 2016

Our table was ready, the service was quick and efficient and the server described anything we were not sure of. Food served in a prompt manor and served hot. They brought my wife's dessert .with a sparkler on it for the birthday and the server sang Happy Birthday. I would recommend this establishment to any one no matter what your tastes are. Booking was easy through Bookenda. - Bookenda -March 2016

Just got back from Casa Manila and it was worth the 50 minute drive anytime, great food and staff. Met the owners and they are special people, and, they purchased a food truck, and maybe coming to Oakville in the spring or summer, I know I'll go.... Met Mila and her husband, wonderful people who really care about their customers. The menu will suit any ones tastes, please try it. - Facebook - March 2016

I've been to Casa Manila twice now and it's a nice change of pace to find an authentic Filipino restaurant in Toronto. The Casa Manila salad is a fresh start to the meal and both BBQ pork and lemongrass chicken skewers are moist and tender. Coconut ginger veggies, peanut beef stew, and the garlic chicken adobo are all tasty. Desserts are nice too! Service friendly and efficient. - Zomato -February 2016

My favorite Filipino restaurant in Toronto! Nice clean eating environment. Food is tasty and service is friendly and fast! - Foursquare -January 2016
