When the first branch of Kamayan opened in 1977 it elevated the idea of the native restaurant from being a mere eatery to a place where there is adventurous native cuisine paired with the pleasure of fine dining. Through the years, Kamayan Restaurant has become the foremost authority on Filipino cuisine. The menu features original fiesta and regional specialties. The sumptuous line up of dishes remains unequal in variety and excellence.In 1993 the buffet dining concept was introduced and become an instant hit in the country. In the course of time, Kamayan evolved into a buffet restaurant to showcase the lavish, regional food festivals the country is famous for. It’s the feast of all feasts, as it features over 50 delectable home-grown dishes you loved throughout the years. On the forefront is the centerpiece of all the Filipino festivities, the piping hot, crackling, perfect Kamayan lechon de leche (roasted suckling pig). Buffet is made even more exciting with the inclusion of the mouth-watering grilled and sizzling specialties: sizzling mangingisda, sisig, crispy pata, pusit sinulog, kare kare, yaman dagat (seafood) and a lot more. Kamayan showcases the grandest and finest in Filipino cuisine. It has become the popular haven of native delicacies, a melting pot of flavors as it gathers together the tried-and-tested recipes of the various regions of our country.

I like the Ayala Mall one better, but this is still an excellent meal at a very reasonable price. I like that they now include juice and shakes in the price of the meal.

Major disappointment, because... Had been going there since the 80's. Always had been my first stop every time I went to Manila. Used to be a great upscale family restaurant with the traditional look, feel and charm of the Philippines. NO MORE! Now, it's nothing more than one giant buffet catering to the young 20-somethings. Gone are the Philippine mahogany... More

Where else are you encouraged to eat with your hands. From the lumpia...to the lapu-lapu....from crispy pata to pork adobo....you cannot miss. Food cooked to perfection...large tasty portions....and superb service...this "eat with your hands restaurant" is a diners delight. Enjoy your COLD San Miguel.....and dont forget the Ube ice cream.

If you are looking for a restaurant that has an excellent and wide selection of Filipino dishes, i would reccomend Kamayan Restaurant. I went there with a friend, and I really enjoyed every minute there. Friendly and warm staff. One of the reasons why i'm enjoying my vacation. Can't wait to return again.

Excellent Filipino food buffet! I wanted very much to try their crispy fried kangkong and crispy fried salmon skin and boy did I get more than I expected! They offer a wide variety of dishes, grilled meat and dessert that you won't be able to resist. You will also be serenaded by a 3-man band while you are eating. The... More
