“What a feast!”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

This is a buffet style restaurant, but the quality and selection are phenominal! Fairly high priced, but given you can eat as much as you want of anything it is very good value!

“One of the Best Buffets in Manila!”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

I had the opportunity to have a business meeting at Circles (which I believe is my 5th visit) some months ago. I just have to say that every visit shows that this restuarant keeps on improving. During this visit, it was a Singapore-themed lunch! The food selection was very extensive and very yummy! All the food was authentically Singaporean but very apt for the Filipino palate. The carving station is my forever favorite because of its succulent prime rib! The fee is a bit expensive but is all worth it!

I will come back again soon!

“Limited food selection for its price”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

For the price of P2,000++, I was expecting more selection of food. No Ebi Tempura or Hakaw when we went there. Food quality is very good though.

“Great Place for Breakfast!”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

I love the variety of food! My favorite part is the Filipino breakfast, danggit, pusit, bangus and fried rice :D

“High-end buffet, great choices”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

Great food choices! What do you expect for a Php2k+ buffet. It was a treat by a close friend/ ex co-employee.
I loved their Japanese and mid-east selections. The Shrimp and Kani salad was tops!
Lechon was superb.
Ambiance- well average only.
Hyatt's Market Cafe is a lot better. Perhaps becuase it's located at a higher floor. Circles is at the ground floor of Makati Shangri-la. We chose a table overlooking Makati Avenue and it was far from the buffet table.

Anyway, we didn't go for the ambiance but for the food.
Over-all rating: Very GOOD.
