Chinese club wants to be best in Metro Manila

Located on the 2nd floor of Golden Phoenix Hotel at the MOA Complex in Pasay City, the sprawling club occupies 1,600 sqm. of floor space divided into an expansive dining hall, four KTV rooms with modern sound systems and larger-than-life screens, as well as seven VIP and Conference Rooms. It is currently top standard among all Chinese clubs in the metro.

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. The dining room can accommodate up to 200 guests and would make an impressive venue.

Authentic Chinese cuisine.

Ashark Club takes pride in is the authenticity of its food. It flew in its very own team of culinary masters led by Chef Mike Cheng from Hong Kong who specializes in Cantonese cuisine.

Must try dishes include marinated ox shank, deep-fried juglans resia, 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, marinated jelly fish with black vinegar, sauteed prawns with long jin tea,  pan-fried lamb chop, polonchay with wanton in soup, and fried rice with salmon. 

All dishes are meticulously prepared using spices and ingredients sourced from China.

Meanwhile, guests peruse the many dishes from an iPad complete with photos, description, and prices. They may also “fish” for their own meal at the big aquariums that house live prawns, crabs, lobsters and different kinds of fish.

High tech KTV/private room

Ashark Club puts a five-star touch to the KTV experience with well-appointed rooms with first-class, state-of-the-art audio and video equipment, including a touchscreen menu of songs and massive flat screen TVs. 

But that’s not all. Each room features a remote-controlled dining table, its own washroom, top-quality hardwood flooring, and plush coffee tables and leather lounge chairs. Stylish chandeliers gracefully hang inside the KTV rooms juxtaposed alongside beautiful paintings, wall decors, and other accessories. Light fixtures playfully change colors as one sings along.

An anteroom and a service window enable the restaurant staff to serve Ashark food and drinks without disturbing the fun. 

Setting the bar

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 is open at 11 a.m. to 3a.m. the following day, Monday to Sunday.
