Of all the buffet that I've ever been, I like Dad's the most.It has the wide range of foods.Japanese,Chinese,Pinoy, Korean - so whatever my cravings are - it's all in here for a reasonable price. I like the taste of their lechon and the choices for their desserts. Service crews always alert on what you need. Thank you for the... More

Im not a fan of international cuisine rest. It just so happen that my family went here for my dad's birthday celebration. The place is nice, they have a large array of food and its quite elegant as I can say. What I didn't enjoy much is the food. When i got here I tried much of their seafood. I... More

My aunt and cousin went here on a Sunday for their Merienda buffet. I had my fill of puto and dinuguan, tokwa't baboy, palabok and siomai. The waiters and other staff up to the janitorial personnel were courteous and friendly. It's a great weekend treat and bonding place for families who like food. The cleanliness can still be improved though... More

Dad's Buffet never disappoints. The best time is to go when they open at 11:00 a.m. on weekdays since weekends get way too crowded. Cuisine is pretty varied ranging from Filipino - lechon, kare-kare, crispy pata, etc. to Japanese - sushi, sukiyaki, tempura and so much more to American - lamb, ham... Desserts - halo halo, rice cakes, puto, ube... More

This is the place for "HUNGRY" people!! A part the jokes, food it's nice, atmosphere just fine and friendly staff. One of my favorite budget buffet in Makati and it doesn't matter if for lunch or dinner, you can't be wrong by eating in here. Nice dishes, various kind of cousine and one of my favorite sushi. This "Trio-Combo-Resto" can... More

Had a great time celebrating with my family at Dad's. I have tried the different buffets around (Vikings, Buffet 101, Barrio Fiesta) this past year and I can honestly say that Dad's still beat the competition hands down. I think they have a wider variety of food & drinks and almost all of their food is really delicious. Would be... More

Dad's is part of three outlets in one (Kamayan and Saisaki completes the trio). This section provides roasted meat as its main attraction and may fill you up quickly while forgetting that its an eat-all-you-can theme. There's seafood paella too which is quite good. Overall, it is an ok meal. I recommend the green mango juice. Service was excellent. About... More

For the best merienda buffet in town, go to Dad’s Saisaki. Tucked in the not-so-busy second level of Glorietta 3, it provides a homey ambiance that is perfect for a casual gathering with friends or family. The restaurant itself is very spacious so you do not have to worry about bumping other people while holding a plateful of goodies. For... More

After my brothers wedding they had the reception at Dad's which was the best buffet restaurant I have every been to in the Philippines with over a 100 items to choose from and it was hard choosing. I guess the seafood selection was the best, but everything was just excellent. Of course, I eat to much and could hardly move... More
