I am happy that this Cubao is home to the newest member of Pizza Hut Philippines. Unlike the previous stores, Pizza Hut Kia Theater, located at the former New Frontier building isn’t red and black. It is a beautifully lit, classy looking, upscale venue, right across from Rustan’s Gateway.
There are a lot of things I appreciate about the new flagship store of pizza hut. This restaurant occupies 2 floors. They said they can accommodate up to 238 customers at any given time. Even full, it doesn’t feel crowded. They have a function room upstairs that can seat 30 people, which is perfect for meetings or social gatherings. They also have an al fresco area on the second floor.
They actually have two kitchens. The kitchen on the ground floor is the main one, producing all the dishes except the pizza. Those are made on the 2nd floor. When I asked why, they said it was for better food quality and service.
They’ve put in a bar to cater to their adult customers. We were treated to strawberry mojitos which were as pretty as they were delicious. It’s a nice place to meet up with the girls though please note that they have a very limited drink selection.
The menu of the restaurant is more extensive than all other Pizza Hut stores currently open. Compared to their bistro, the portions served are also bigger. Most obvious additions are the grilled items but they also have some pasta dishes and pizza flavors just for this store (at this time).
What I always look for though in every restaurant I go to is the quality of service. I found a few really good service staff. They were alert, resourceful and attentive. They are the kind that I hope get bonuses and promotions (which they deserve).
Pizza Hut Kia Theater is open as early as 7 am for breakfast (self-service). They are scheduled to close at 11 pm but on weekends they close at midnight.
