Breakfast starts from 6am. Its was complimentary, as I was staying at the hotel. Quite a good buffet selection, I especially like their fresh fruits bar. Service staffs were all smiles and attentive. Excellent service!! Really worth a visit..

Fresh! The sushi, sashimi, tiger prawns were amazing! The selection of food, from Filipino to Indian, to western was very good. The prime rib was a bit overcooked, but tasty. The service was not great. We had to flag down waiters to provide water & coffee. It was a busy day, but this was not a reflection of the 5... More

There may be many reasons to stay at the Peninsula, but the breakfast buffet at Escolta is not really one of them. On our last morning in the Philippines, when Makati was on Good-Friday lockdown, we decided to stroll over across the street to Shangri-La's Circles (the walk takes a bit longer than it sounds here, because pedestrians have very...

I regularly come to this outlet at the Makati Shangri-La. So far, IMHO, they have the best breakfast buffet selection in Manila. The waitstaff, namely Ms. Belle and Ms. Germaine are their best waitstaff for me. They attend immediately to requests and will do it with a very friendly smile. Pricey it may be but I think it's worth visiting😊😊😊

We have previously stayed and dined at Sofitel and Shangri La The Fort, but I feel simply at home with Shangri La Makati. The food is still great, the ambiance is cozy and the people of Circles are warm. Shout out to the accomodating staff Philip, Ronald and John. Ronald brought us baked lobster in cheese, thank you.

Has really good variety and one of the nicest Indian dishes. Problem is that it gets really crowded and space can be an issue.
