I traveled to Manila for an overnight trip over 11th-12th May and chose Berjaya after going down the Makati hotel list alphabetically. Service - very good. Room/bed - good. Location - downtown Makati, and good as well (easy amenities, restaurants and pharmacy just outside).
But the food was horrible ! Being a Malaysian chain hotel (Berjaya Group), I was indeed impressed to see, on arrival, their in-house promotion of Malaysian foods, including Penang Char Koay Teow. I tried this on Saturday afternoon and it was shockingly *dark-sauce sweet* and the furthest thing from what was promoted - "the real thing". It was also garnished with capsicum ! Being a Penangite myself, quite a few other 'rules' were broken here with what I was served, but I'll leave it at that.
I wonder if the recipes were QC-ed prior to being listed on the menu ? In this case, quite sure it wasn't.
Will I go back ? Definitely - for the service, location and surrounding amenities. But this time, I'll stick to local and Western fare when I eat in.
