“Pricy but excellent”
Review of Spiral

Spiral

Certificate of Excellence

Dining options: Dinner, Late Night, Lunch, Breakfast, Buffet, Delivery, Reservations
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.

“Ever favorite buffet”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

What more can I say about Spiral? It's been my families ever favorite buffet, considering it is the best longest buffet in town. No buffet can ever match the quality and quantity of food in Spiral. Just like hotel hopping, buffet hopping is also our hobby. As of now, Spiral is still our number 1 choice when it comes to buffet. And if you will ask my mom , who is 75 years old. No buffet will ever beat Spiral to her. And if she's feeling sad, going to Spiral will makes her happy.
It's an international food. So whatever nationality you are , you can never have a problem in choosing what food to eat. But off course, you should also try other dishes.
My personal favorite is, the dessert atelier and cheese atelier.

It's worth paying for. The 21 ateliers are completely appetizing. it is like travelling in a couple of countries in a night because of the amazing longest buffet in Manila. They have friendly staffs. Service was so good I would like to commend Alyssa for her excellent service, her attentiveness and taking care of my wife whose having a flu that night. The place was completely awesome.
