Definitely expensive on standards of modern Filipino living but surely it was all worth it. From the place, to service, staff but most especially the food of different cuisines from local, asian to european dishes. Beef, chicken, pork and seafood, even their wide selection of desserts and drinks are all delicious. Over all experience is sumptuous definitely gonna comeback again.

Perhaps it was because of the holiday, but this place was bustling with people (a good thing, I suppose.) Seafood station, traditional Filipino food, unlimited beer, and desserts. Nice spread, but a little too busy.

I love buffets and would give this below average. Firstly I found the variety of food items not to my taste and not very appetizing. Lots of greasy food. Sushi was terrible. Tried a little and was warm and not appetizing. Hope I don't get sick. I ended up only eating some tempura shrimp and a green vegetable dish, both... More

My college friends and I dine in last December 3 for our yearly Christmas meet up and I must say I love the food selection. We really had a great time, Japanese food was superb, everything down to desserts. Definitely we will come back!

With all the lighting and crystal, this place was done very nice. They even had a selection of wine which was surprising. There was a lot of different types of food to choose from. Japanese, Korean, Thai and Philippine. I was very pleased.

Buffet 101 is one of the best buffet restaurants in the Philippines. I've been to Buffet more than 2 times already and i never want to miss the shrimps being cooked straight from the aquarium! Plus the unlimited red wine and the fried spicy crabs!!!! You get lots of food choices for less. Some buffet restaurants have several food options... More

celebrated "thanks giving" here last Thursday since were working like an american hahaha. I must say that the foods are better than the vikings, though they have to improve their "dessert". NOTE : cheaper than vikings.

I honestly underestimated Buffet 101. I didn't expect such wide variety of food and drink choices. Also, most of my buffet experience I'd get disappointed because the food that I like gets stockout easily but during our time here there was enough supply. I ate all the things I like in buffets and tried other things too. It was a... More
