We initially wanted to go to another famous buffet restaurant but as the queue was ridiculously long, my brother suggested we try Buffet 101 as he had been there before. There was a line as well especially for a Thursday night, but it would not take us as long as the other one would so we got a number and... More

International buffet with just so many fillers just to say they have a wide spread of foods to show case. Food taste wise is just so so.. I don't think you get what your paying. One of the worst dessert buffet taste i have ever been. They may have the quantity like Vikings but they did meet the taste quality... More

We were there Jun 20, with officemates and it is my first time and very curious since the comparison will always be with Vikings. Started with their salad, grilled shrimps & pampano, crabs, scallops, siomai, two glasses of shake, tea, then wine. It is not crowded and value for money is ok.

My family had an awful experience at the Buffet 101 by MOA. An incident happened just as we were about to get food. As this lady turned around with her plate, my cousin accidentally bumps into her. The lady not only embarrassed herself by cussing at a minor in front of all the guests and chefs, but she also humiliated... More

It must be difficult, with many diners descending all at once to enhance an experience. This was so on my birthday, in May. My wife and son had made a reservation, with requests. Being handicapped I have walking disability. A table closer to the food was requested only to find the opposite was actually reserved. The greeter was great and... More

Fantastic buffet spread with very tasty and fresh food. Throughly enjoyed the range of food that was served from Mexican and Western to Japanese, Chinese and other asian food. Plus all the Filipino favourites. Definitely one of the best buffets I have been to and was extremely enjoyable dining there with a big group of friends. Waiters were a little... More

Probably one of the best buffet restaurants here in the Metro. They have lots of dishes to choose from. Even their wine is in the buffet. If your planning on having a cheat day for your diet, this is the place to go. LOL. Though it was a bit pricey, We dined last June 12, which was a holiday and... More

Made my reservation by thursday, got a text confirmation the following day for our lunch scheduled saturday. Impressing! Well, they have great food and lots to choose from. One thing I just didnt like, I asked for a serving spoon and that crew just passed by me and pretends not hearing me at all. He's very fortunate that I am... More

Buffet dining has to have one thing. Good food. This place does not have that. Firstly, the place is always full and advance reservation is a must. The food is not good. It just looks and feels commercialized and so poorly put together. Expect food that is not tasty, but it will just fill you up with choices. They replace... More
