“Go-to buffet joint when in San Fernando”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Been here three times. All visits were enjoyable. Food was great.

The selection is not that wide, but they have the Filipino classics, enough to go around.

Staff are very helpful and can get you some food items that may not be refilled immediately at the buffet table.

Value for money is excellent. I always leave a tip.

Location is very convenient. Parking not a problem. A bit hard to deal with ambulant vendors and beggars in the frontage though. Security looks capable anyway.

Still highly recommended.

p.s. the owner is related to the person who owns the more popular Cabalen buffet chain.

“Thumbs Up!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

I've been to this place so many times. The price is so much affordable and the food tastes great! The place is cozy. I highly recommend it for small gatherings. It is also a great place for those people craving for Filipino food.

“Authentic Capampangan Cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2014

I am 100% Capamangan but i have known and tasted dishes only at Bale capampangan. Adobong Balot ( one day old chick ), Puga ( fish eggs ), Pindang Damulag ( carabao ) among others. and i would recommend it to non Kapampangan visitors. The Buffet is very affordable and what do you get, eat all you can until your'e heavily full. It has a pasalubong ( capampnagna delicacies ) stall for those who wanted to bring home something to their family. The ambience is localized and there is a pianist once in a while adding musical flavor as background. Limited parking but Valet is allowed.

“Delicacies of Kapampangan 100% delicious and affordable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2014

After road trip we looked for buffet restaurant around San Fernando, I can't find much reviews about this restaurant probably it's new. But I'm definite that this resto is one of the best buffet ever!. For Php295, you'll be able to enjoy kapampangan delicacies.
