Great place to eat!!

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... read 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

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

We celebrated my husband's birthday here and we were satisfied with the food- international cuisine. I love the roast pork, suckling lechon, and the fresh sashimi! A little bit crowded though during dinner and weekends! We enjoyed our lunch celebration here...

I thought we were dining at a public market when we had our lunch here. Service was ok. Food was tasty but we did not enjoy it as there were so many people that day. It was almost closing time for lunch so the customers were in a hurry to get their food. Maybe it will be better the next... More

Ate here last year April 2014 and then my son requested to celebrate his 9th birthday here on August 28 2014. One of the best buffets I have ever been. Complete with different cuisine, Filipino, American/English, Korean, Chinese, Japanese and Italian etc. Different choices also of drinks either iced tea, soft drinks or beer, desserts, They have "halo halo".

So many cuisines to choose from! And you can't go wrong trying em! :) Desserts were really good as well. Love the ambiance of the restaurant, staffs were approachable as I requested for salmon sashimi. Must try the unlimited frozen yogurt, too! When you're hungry wandering around SM Mall of Asia, it's the perfect place to dine in!
