I booked 30 seats to celebrate my daughter's birthday. Classmates and some relatives joined us for merienda. At P258 per person, this is a steal. There are various options like the native delicacies, halo halo bar, salad bar (loved the Greek salad), tropical fruits in syrup, noodles station (beef or chicken), mini tacos, shawarma, spaghetti (meat sauce or carbonara), varieties...

This is a food hall type restaurant with a flat fee and then it's all one can eat. There is a wide range of food and one is best to sample small amount form three or four dishes, or conversely concentrate on one....such as the Japanese section. Not the cheapest place to eat, but service is good when needed and... More

Dad's is our go-to buffet restaurant. We LOVE their Roast Beef and various Pork selections near the entrance (crispy pata, lechon, etc.). However, I noticed that they are on a steady decline in terms of food and service. They used to serve a steady stream of baked oysters.Now, you're lucky if you get a glimpse. They used to offer cheesecakes.... More

Im not a fan of international cuisine rest. It just so happen that my family went here for my dad's birthday celebration. The place is nice, they have a large array of food and its quite elegant as I can say. What I didn't enjoy much is the food. When i got here I tried much of their seafood. I... More

My aunt and cousin went here on a Sunday for their Merienda buffet. I had my fill of puto and dinuguan, tokwa't baboy, palabok and siomai. The waiters and other staff up to the janitorial personnel were courteous and friendly. It's a great weekend treat and bonding place for families who like food. The cleanliness can still be improved though... More

Dad's Buffet never disappoints. The best time is to go when they open at 11:00 a.m. on weekdays since weekends get way too crowded. Cuisine is pretty varied ranging from Filipino - lechon, kare-kare, crispy pata, etc. to Japanese - sushi, sukiyaki, tempura and so much more to American - lamb, ham... Desserts - halo halo, rice cakes, puto, ube... More

This is the place for "HUNGRY" people!! A part the jokes, food it's nice, atmosphere just fine and friendly staff. One of my favorite budget buffet in Makati and it doesn't matter if for lunch or dinner, you can't be wrong by eating in here. Nice dishes, various kind of cousine and one of my favorite sushi. This "Trio-Combo-Resto" can... More

Had a great time celebrating with my family at Dad's. I have tried the different buffets around (Vikings, Buffet 101, Barrio Fiesta) this past year and I can honestly say that Dad's still beat the competition hands down. I think they have a wider variety of food & drinks and almost all of their food is really delicious. Would be... More
