Good Job!

This is the place for "HUNGRY" people!! A part the jokes, food it's nice, atmosphere just fine and friendly staff. One of my favorite budget buffet in Makati and it doesn't matter if for lunch or dinner, you can't be wrong by eating in here. Nice dishes, various kind of cousine and one of my... read more

Had a great time celebrating with my family at Dad's. I have tried the different buffets around (Vikings, Buffet 101, Barrio Fiesta) this past year and I can honestly say that Dad's still beat the competition hands down. I think they have a wider variety of food & drinks and almost all of their food is really delicious. Would be... More

The food and place is very nice and just near shopping area. Perfect for a group/solo. They have a wide space.

Dad's is part of three outlets in one (Kamayan and Saisaki completes the trio). This section provides roasted meat as its main attraction and may fill you up quickly while forgetting that its an eat-all-you-can theme. There's seafood paella too which is quite good. Overall, it is an ok meal. I recommend the green mango juice. Service was excellent. About... More

For the best merienda buffet in town, go to Dad’s Saisaki. Tucked in the not-so-busy second level of Glorietta 3, it provides a homey ambiance that is perfect for a casual gathering with friends or family. The restaurant itself is very spacious so you do not have to worry about bumping other people while holding a plateful of goodies. For... More

After my brothers wedding they had the reception at Dad's which was the best buffet restaurant I have every been to in the Philippines with over a 100 items to choose from and it was hard choosing. I guess the seafood selection was the best, but everything was just excellent. Of course, I eat to much and could hardly move... More

I wouldn't come here for the second time. Now that there's Buffet 101 just a short walk away, you might as well take the warm-up. There food tastes like they didn't even try. I had the same blah experience in Dad's SM Megamall.

We were in the Glorietta 3 mall (near hunger strike) and were in discussion of what to eat as one person wanted Italian and another wanted Japanese so the conclusion came to try Dad's Buffet which caters to a variety of cuisines from Western,European and Asian. FOOD The quality is not 5 star but it is above average for buffet... More

Despite being careful about eating only well cooked and not picked over food, still got horrible upset GI problems which made me miss a business commitment. I realize a lot of people go through the individual dishes, carries a risk, but i have not encountered such a problem with other buffet places during the week.

But I being a vegetarian, there were very very few options except salads :) I would seriously advise Dads to give more vegetarian options - the pasta at the freshly made pasta counter was very yummy, but thats almost it for vegetarians - no other great choices but for the non-vegetarians (all my other 23 colleagues were non-veggies :)) they...
