The office conducted our social night at Sambo Kojin EDSA. There were 34 of us. The staff was accommodating enough to find tables that were close to each other so all of us can sit together. The food was great. I circled the buffet area at least 4 times. But sometimes the food that I would come back for isn't... More

We went here on the day of my birthday to avail of the birthday promo (eat free on your birthday, just bring 1 accompanying adult). If you're into smokeless grill, I would recommend eating here, since it is a buffet. The Eastwood branch has degraded though, since the first time I went here. The seafood selection is not that fresh... More

It took 10mins to get a glass of cold water. Another 10 mins for a small watermelon juice. Their gyoza was chewy. Ribs? There was too many herb and sauce. It wasn't appetizing at all. Good stuff. Eat a lot of ebi tempura, sashimi and bacon. I guess that's it. Service? Poor. A lot of the crew were just standing... More

There were 2 birthday celebrants and one graduate and we thought it was a very good deal for a party of 7. To our surprise, one of us, a 70-year old could get a 50% discount! It is a buffet of Japanese dishes and one can get whatever they like. And limitless drinks (including fruit juices). We were all contented.... More

Yes, literally japanese overload because this is a buffet eat all you can restaurant, your tummy will quit on you. As usual, in any buffet, we avoid rice and other cheap food. They simply have no room in our stomach. First we start with ambience, its a modern zen type design restaurant. Full of warm lights. The place is for... More

It was my first time to eat at Sambo Kojin Eastwood after almost a year. My expectations were average because I know for a fact that the newly introduced carving station was only available on their Megamall branch. Quite frankly I expected an average experience based on the number of times I have visited this branch in the past. But... More

I appreciate their polite way of saying things like the one shown n the picture, this is something better instead of saying "we will charge you for this and that if the food that you just took will not be consumed" something like that. :-/ thumbs up for this buffet. ^_^

We were HUMILIATED, DISREPECTED, EMBARASSED and APPALLED as we were asked to finish our food for FIVE minutes. Five minutes to finish ramen, teriyaki, sushi, desserts etc. which is next to impossible. Considering that this is our FIRST TIME and we are about to START our meal when he approached. He was RUDE, INCONSIDERATE and CONDESCENDING to us in announcing... More

It's not my first time in Sambo, though it's my first at the Eastwood branch. The food selection wasn't as much, but almost each dish was worth tasting at least a bite! It was also fun grilling the food on your table, experimenting with the dips. I think I must have eaten a ton of food here! To top it... More
