After reading that Dad's has undergo a facelift. Renamed Dad's world buffet, my partner and I decided to give it a try. Although we had tried dad's before and our experience was good, we think it's a good time to give it another go after it's buffet offering was upgraded and expanded. Food was very very good. I stress that... More

i rate poor as overall- only because it should ever strive to be above average- which once it was but is not anymore the case. i believe that this resto is still doing good, what with the healthy crowd and the short but respectable line waiting to be seated. however, even without wanting to observe, certain things took my attention...

This is very similar to buffet 101, they even have the same price. Buffet 101 has slightly more variety, but this one has slightly better quality and so I will go to this one in the future. They have a lot, but not enough to be too interesting, I still had to go over everything 4 times.... Many of their... More

No matter what your taste - Dad's has so many choices to satisfy. They offer a buffet of Filipino and American cuisine. The food is excellent quality for a buffet - far exceeding the average buffet back in the USA. There are several Dad's in the Manila area - usually in an SM Shopping Mall. Can't wait to come back...

Dad's has come a long way. Food varies from chinese, japanese, pinoy and many more. This is my favourite buffet rest since I was in high school. Been to other branches also but I think, Dad's Makati has an edge over the others because also of the crowd. I love their merienda buffet also.

The restaurant improved their set of cuisines over the years. This time, the additions to the menu was pretty much awesome. The carving station was great. However, the service was lacking. The only person who we found pretty nice was the one manning the carving station.. Everyone who was attending to their respective stations was a bit of a snob.

The vast array of food is overwhelming... we were happy with that... You can easily put on some pounds if you eat there... But all in all... recommended !!!

That is what Dad's call their atelier, The Ultimate Buffet. We frequent this restaurant for a lot of reasons, affordable, wide selection, fun atmosphere and very accessible. Our favorites are obviously tempura, sushi and sashimi, leg of lamb, PRITCHON!, and the puto bumbong. The serenaders are also a big plus, what surpirses me is that their playlist is pretty much...

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
