Nice food, mixed atmosphere

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.

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

Been here last week and knowing it's Christmas season, the place was jampacked. Interiors are clean and good. You can make reservations through phone call or you can go early for walk-in. I commend them for having red wine included at the buffet. Food choices are plenty, but not as many as other buffet restaurants at the same price range.... More

Excellent dining in Pasay, good variety and great service. We visited for lunch and ended up staying 2 hours and still did not get to try all the different cuisines offered here.

With the proliferation of buffet offerings in the Metro, you'd think that each restaurant will try to outdo the others. After all, most of them are on the same price range, so what would make a diner choose one over the other? Alas, this is NOT so with Buffet 101's branch inside the Robinsons Magnolia Mall. Yes, they offer so... More
