Still one of the best buffets in Manila

Buffet 101 has better food choices in its buffet compared to its main competitors in the industry. The ambiance is like a hotel set-up, its luxurious.

A variety of food to choose from, both local and international, including dessert. People cross your path every now and then to get to the buffet service tables. We enjoyed much of the food. The downside was paying our bill. We were all seniors celebrating a friend's birthday so we thought it was easy for the cashier to compute our... More

Me, my team together with our boss went here few months ago. The foods are just okay. The people working there are nice. The thing i didn't like is alot of people running around, plus the area is noisy. U have to fall in line for a specific food then at times u have to wait till it gets refilled...yhe... More

Listen, I know it's a buffet, but there are at least 100 people running around the place working, what are they doing, have no idea. Couldn't get drinks. Food was mediocre at best! Couldn't get the check. Finally just went to the reception to pay the bill (and why they would even want to charge me is beyond me), manager... More

I really like Buffet 101. If you can get past the rude patrons who can't bother to wait in a line or think they are the only ones eating there then you will love it. The food is good with many different varieties. No time limit so you can eat at your leisure. The only other thing was the computers... More

We were a small group of five celebrating my aunt and uncle's wedding anniversary. The service was quick and polite, with very little waiting time before we were seated. The atmosphere (at least for the dinner sitting) was bright and quite lively, but we were fine with that. Your mileage may vary, I do appreciate and understand why some of... More

Wide choice of goods and styles. Like all 'AYCE' buffets, it's a sustainability nightmare, but that's the choice you make.. Food is ok but taste seemed second-class. Sushi wraps seemed tough. Meat was best from fresh carvery. Desserts are good. No coffee available except from a poor quality machine. Orange juice highly sweetened and not fresh. Very popular with local... More

This was the second time at the 101 Buffet and it was just as bad a the first time for me. I'm from America and the Locals seem to like this place. The food just isn't cooked right and was worse than fast food. Some fried pork was so tough I couldn't bite into it. I tried many food items... More
