I used to eat in this restaurant as a child but there was a time that the quality of the food, service and hotel in general was in a near-decrepit state. We happened to be in the area and decided to give it a try, and our experience exceeded our expectations. The food selection was substantial, the service staff were... More

I've had both the dinner and breakfast buffet in this place. The variety of food available was amazing. The freshness and quality of the offerings was outstanding. I was completely satisfied on both occasions. The only problem was, it is a buffet, and when its a buffet I overeat!

One of the finer place I've dined in. Love the color and the ambience, would make an excellent place to meet for business or w/ friends and family for a quiet afternoon chat. And what more to make the experience complete but through a cup of hot brewed coffee or chocolate and sample a plate of bibingka w/ duck egg,... More

The selection is top-notch. one of the best, if not the best Hotel Buffet in Manila. Service is very good as well. We went for dinner on a seafood night, Sea Bass was excellent.

balance contribution from different asian cuisine but a lot of japanese selections. it would be better to secure a reservation in advance and you could take a walk afterwards in the iconic rizal park.

This is a "don't miss" if you visit Manila. While the buffet is extensive and very high quality, we ordered from the luncheon menu. I ordered pasta that was well prepared and delicious. Service was great! After our luch, we moved to the Manila Hotel lobby for dessert and coffee. What a great room! Don't miss it!

We were here during post lunch hours, so could order some snacks, portion size are small relative to the price charged and lacks flavour. Pasta was prepared in butter, which seemed to be pretty unusual especially when it was in Aglio-Olio style; meant to be in Olive oil
