This one of my favourite hotel buffet breakfasts in Manila. I last dined here about 1 year ago and the buffet is still as good. The choices are numerous and include Filipino Indian Western and Japanese choices to name a few. This time when I requested mangoes I was provided with fresh cut mangos. These are not included in the... More

One cannot be able to try ll the dishes served in the buffet table because its too many. They even have a bricked oven if you opted to have a... More

If you're travelling to the Philippines for the first time, don't miss a day (or more) tour/stay at the Manila Hotel and get to experience the grandeur of Philippine history and culture in a 5-star hotel environment. It is also an ideal place for conventions and recreational activities like swimming, spa, etc. Furthermore, everything that you need like banking,transportation or... More

I stayed in Manila hotel for a few nights and end up having breakfast and dinner here. The buffets are yummy! The selection of food for dinner buffet is pretty good--east to west. I love their Korean and Japanese buffets. Think bulgogi and sashimi. Their steak melts like butter. And the deserts, from Filipino sweets like bibingka, puto-bumbong, or ensaymada... More

positives, massive choice of food and flavours from all over the world. Negatives, food that should be hot should not be Luke warm verging on cold. The cold buffet was good, plenty of salads and seafood but as I said the hot food was poor as it just was not to temperature, shame as the quality was excellent. The dessert... More

The buffet spead is delightful, the ala carte menu are reasonably priced. Delicious dishes in elegant plating. Take tables with the view of the pool, the pocket gardens can be calming than just the view of other tables. Suprisingly, solo orders are big enough to share. Now, a secret: The "Princess", a kiddie meal actually, is a favorite-- tender juicy... More

Great clubhouse sandwich, aside from it's unique presentation, the sandwich itself was delicious and had the right amount of all expected ingredients plus a nice tinge of sweetness (I think that was the pineapple bits), it was also served on the side with a very well done and fresh pate! Super! However, the service staff can learn to keep their... More
