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 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.
