Bugsy's in Makati is located on San Agustin street which is parallel to Valero street in Salcedo Village.

Azuthai is the Thai restaurant that is part of the group of restaurants of El Cirkulo and Milky way fame. It's located at the ground floor of the Milky Way building on Pasay road.
The interiors are very Thai/Asian and quite lovely. Though we ate there during lunch, the restaurant is quite dim as they used mood lighting.
