Spiral Buffet is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A bit on the pricer side. However worth every penny. Located on the second floor of the famous Sofitel Hotel and getting its name form the spiral stairs leading to the restaurant from the lobby floor. The stair becomes closed by mid morining on the weekends to accomodate in house entertainment... More

We went to Sofitel to have breakfast for my mom and dad's anniversary. The selection of food in Spirals were a lot. We particularly enjoyed the juice selection especially the smoothies which are so refreshing. And my mom enjoyed the freshly baked croissants. The service was excellent especially by the manager who came to our table, Chambers Marcelo who made... More

This is one of the most popular hotel buffet restos. We like this because of huge variety of food from appetizers, main course to desserts. Not much of maki, tempura or ramen. My wife loves their desserts. You can try their Nutrition juices is test tubes. We just advice you reserve early.

We went to Spiral buffet with high expectations to celebrate my grandma's 80th birthday. This has been my worst dining experience ever! The biggest issue was food poisoning (first time me and my boyfriend got food poisoning ever in our lives, considering that we've eaten at some pretty sketchy places). We probably got it from the uni, because only 3... More

Many years we are dining in Restaurants in Manila which are highly ranked but only Spiral at Sofitel Manila is keeping up quality, service, friendliness and standards. Thanks to the whole Team for always giving us a great service and let us feel special. Never I had something to complain. Thumbs up for real 5 Star training and education.

Ambience is very good. Waiters weren't so attentive, but friendly nonetheless. The spread has a huge selection from different cusines. They have a cheese bar, bread area, and seafood area. Unfortunately, the seafood (shrimps and scallops) weren't seemingly cooked enough so my folks suffered severe diarrhea and vomitting fits for a few days (this was the only food I didn't... More

Description
Making a splash when it first opened in 2006, Spiral’s dining innovations were a first in Asia and it became one of Manila’s most loved restaurants. Dining has never been the same again since. But the new Spiral proves that even a trailblazer can top itself with Sofitel once again taking destination dining to a whole new level.The new Spiral is divided into 21 dining ateliers. In France, an atelier is an artist’s special workshop, and in Spiral it is where secret recipes are masterfully prepared right before your very eyes. The range of cuisines is expansive and the attention and detail to each dish has the focus of an artisan.
