Dad's has a wide variety of cuisines to choose from we were spoilt for choice. The food is good and the buffet makes it quite overwhelming. Keep it up

Dad's is a buffet restaurant serving primarily a selection of Filipino food. They also serve popular Japanese foods (sushi, tempura, tepanaki), Chinese, Korean, Thai, and Mexican dishes. Food is decent. The large buffet with all the options is rather overwhelming. But if you like a lot of meats, local dishes, and options you'll be happy with this restaurant. They serve... More

We have dined at Dads several times over the last few years. Generally each trip to Manila we visit Dads once. Its not gourmet, its busy but offers the best value for money buffet. Its a perfect introduction for overseas visitors to Filipino Food. The buffet has Filipino, Japanese and Western Food available and it is a very large buffet.... More

This was one of the best buffet restaurants i tried with an AFFORDABLE PRICE!! It was a little bit noisy, since it was always crowded...but it was okay. The main thing is: FOOD.

I simply love this restaurant. This is not the Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars in Vegas, but it doesn't cost as much either. The FIlipino food is delicious, the Western food great, and the Japanese food is better than many al a carte Japanese restaurants, and certainly better than other Japanese buffets at which I have eaten. The desserts are a... More

Good food! Poor service. Like most people in Manila, avoided eye contact, crabby. The hostess that seats guests was friendly enough.

Dad's is located in Makati, Philippines. Close to Gold's Gym. I loved the variety of cuisines and the ambiance. the food is great. But some of the staff are too busy sometimes and they cant cater to some of the guest. another Comment, wish the bathrooms were a little bigger. But it total dad's it worth every cent you pay....

Went there at 8:00 pm and it was a madhouse. Food was good. Previous reviews are correct. Be careful what plates you grab as it's priced based on what food you get. Either Japanese international or Filipino. Make sure your waitress tells you!!! Food is ok though. Not too bad for a buffet. Overall- average due to it's a typical... More
