This is one restaurant that I will never go back to again. First, you hardly can be accommodated unless you made a reservation. Secondly, the food presentation is really bad. Looks like you are in a chaotic fiesta. Third, the taste of food is so ordinary that does not worth every peso you will spend. Lastly, too expensive for the... More

I like the ambiance and the interior of the restaurant makes you feel like you're really in a five-star hotel as what their description says: "Five Star Hotel Feel" but the food are just OKAY (in taste), and most of them are common..

The food was mediocre. They should stop cooking that singaporean seafood soup. It was terrible. Looked like a river kill. Tasted terrible. Part of it was my fault, i tried it. The sushi rice had that texture of refrigerated sushi available at supermarkets, and thats offensive to the grocery store. Chefs should go a bit easy on the salt. The... More

My friend from San Diego wanted to try this resto as per recommendation of another friend. I also got to tag along my brother in-law to partake of dinner. Starting on the right side of the buffet station. I enjoyed the first two rounds on the chinese dimsum section that I could not get as much as I wanted to... More

My nth time to eat here . Quality has been in a down trend. Dishes were not that appetizing anymore. Majority of the dishes are fried if not very saucy. Batter of the calamari is so thick. Tuna sashimi is not available . Soda dispenser is broken. The place is suitable for birthday blow outs. They have a section wherein... More

Food is very nice and varied indeed. Nice contrast to the meat based cusine elsewhere in the country. However atmosphere is not great: Very loud to western ears (dishes banged by waiters), not "cosy" at all, maybe okay for many locals; waiters seem to be exhausted at the end of the shift. Located at the very end of MOA, thus... More

Went to two locations (MOA & Greenbelt) on different occasions and wasn't impressed at all. MOA location is better but both didn't replenish their seafood area. When we requested for particular seafood, we were told they ran out. This was during lunch. Don't tell me there wasn't any left. What are they gonna serve for dinner? Some reviews rave about...

Our Auntie took us here and I'm so glad she did. This place is simply amazing. It's difficult to describe if you've never been here. It's hotel style buffet fine dining. We don't have anything like this in the USA, but we should. There are no plastic or paper plates or paper napkins. Make sure you come here hungry. The... More

Heard lots of good things about this restaurant so I was glad to finally try it out. Tip: make a reservation because although there are 2 separate lines for those with & without reservations, they seat those with first. We waited a good 30 minutes to be seated on a weekday for lunch. The ambience is very nice, very classy... More
