Good food, not an overwhelming amount of choices but what I tasted was yummy!

Overall it was good experience. The food was fresh, including the sashimi and rolls. I loved the teppanyaki station. Ambiance is nice and not crowded. Service with a smile.

Market Cafe at the rebranded New World by the bay is consistently good for the breakfast and lunch buffets.

The breakfast buffet in the New World Manila Bay features stations of American, European, Cantonese, and Filipino breakfast items along with smaller displays of Middle Eastern and Japanese foods. So, you can have a croissant and noodles and grilled cauliflower. Everything is calibrated to Filipino taste, of course. The best section is the freshly prepared fruit. The open kitchen concept...

I've tried several buffets in hotels and Market cafe is my favorite. I've tried their dinner and lunch buffet and both were excellent. It's not exactly an affordable buffet and I usually wait for a "discount deal" online. It's my favorite because (1) I do not get overwhelmed with the selection (Spiral's buffet is good but can get overwhelming) (2)... More

My wife and really enjoyed the food at the buffet restaurant in the hotel. We did not stay at the hotel, but just ate dinner. They had the meat and seafood special going on I think. I love chicken and they had the best chicken I've had in the Philippines. All their meat was excellent, and they had a great... More

Brilliant assortment of food, I didn't even know a place like this existed on earth! Then they knocked 25% off our bill at the end cause we were staying there! Just go here you will think you have died and gone to food heaven! Oh yeah and all you can drink beer as well!!!

Seafood was good, specially the shrimps were huge and can have them cooked the way you want them and if your lazy like me, have them peeled as well.The prime rib was... More

Hits and so-sos . Hits: the freshly brewed coffee, tea selections, the cheese board and the bread range, fresh fruit juices, flourless dark chocolate cake, bread pudding, lobster and shrimps (have them cook it for you salt and pepper style only as the seafood are fresh and best eaten this way), grade A salmon sashimi, varied sushi selection, prime rib...

Market Cafe located in the Hyatt Hotel and Casino Manila was actually one of the pioneers in open kitchen concepts for its coffee shop or all day dining restaurants. It has a number of open kitchens serving authentic cuisines from the region. It is very interactive as chefs man the counters and prepare food a la minute. Food is never... More

Forgive me for being candid but considering the price I paid & the lousy food served, i must say the experience was an utter disappointment. Market cafe' interiors looked ambitious but appeared ordinary. I liked the roast beef though (the only food I dared to continue eating --- I ignored the rest after having a bite). And, the reception was... More
