“Disappointing !”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

I heard a lot about the diner buffet so I had high expectations. Unfortunately I was very disappointed. I started with a Sushi that was good. Then I wanted to move to the main course. I tried all kind of dishes (almost 6-7) and all of them were not good. I tried the Duck the Turkey the Shawarma the Lamb the Chicken, different Sauces but all was very disappointed. I ended up eating rice … and for 3,000php it’s very expensive for plain rice. Their desserts are good, but not worth the price you pay to eat there. If you want to spend 3,000php on dinner there are better places to eat in Makati.

“Simple one of the best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

Next to Spiral, Circles is simply the next best buffet dining restaurant in Metro Manila. The food is topnotch and it has a very exclusive feel to it that I like. Wide array of local andf international dishes. Perfect for lunch dates and meetings. Their grill section is just superb and the japanese offerings are to die for. The chinese and american section are also noteworthy.

The staff is very accommodating and pleasing. And compared to spiral, it is less expensive. located at the ground floor.
