QUEZON CITY, Philippines – Coming at the heels of Gerry’s refashioning – dropping ‘Grill’ from its name, a homier, more family-oriented and casual dining ambience – comes a new addition to its growing portfolio of restaurant chains: Sweet Chili Thai Fish and Noodles Restaurant.

Its tagline “You’d still rather be at Gerry’s” couldn’t ring truer – with a growing list of brands at Gerry’s Group of Companies’ helm.

“The combination of sweet, sour, hot and salty flavors makes Thai cuisine exotic and distinct. With its immerse popularity it is impossible not to find a Thai restaurant even in Western countries,” says Gerry Apolinario, the successful entrepreneur behind Gerry’s at the opening of Sweet Chili Thai Fish and Noodle House located at the 2nd floor of Fisher Mall along Quezon Avenue in Quezon City.

“The Philippine restaurant scene is replete with Filipino food entrepreneurs who have become big names in offering foreign cuisine,” observe Apolinario. “It is our vision to become the ambassador of Pinoy food abroad, and showcase our culinary skills. We have good cooks and chefs because we love to eat!”

Genuine-tasting and simple, matched with friendly Pinoy service in a casual ambience, Sweet Chili Thai Fish and Noole House is a gastronomic adventure.

“There are no shortcuts when your aim is to delight customers. We import some of our key ingredients so that you taste nothing but real Thai cuisine,” adds Apolinario who opened Gerry’s 17 years ago.
