Visited Cabalen in SM Clark for dinner after seeing the poster outside. The buffet was nice and tasty, but most dishes were cold, which spoiled it. I have been to Cabalen in Manila at SM Megamall, and Robinsons Ermita and both have significantly larger selection of dishes. Overall a basic buffet with limited selection, and remember that the price quoted... More

SM CITY Pampanga, I only wish they have had more selection. I couldn't find fault with the taste of their food though. It was a so-so buffet. If only they have more desserts I could've given them 4 ratings.

The kids had their free meal since they didn't reach the height for the 50%. I like the fried kangkong, lechon kawali, fried rice, and a lot offer but not extraordinary.... More

I always Loved to eat at Cabalen Sm Megamall Ortigas Pasig not just because of the ambiance but also because of their Foods. They had Japanese Cuisine back then. (that was 2 years ago ) After l moved from Manila to Pampanga, I really looked to eat at Cabalen Sm Clark. The First Time I and my cousin went there,... More

Enough food choices, nice place and location adds up to a very good treat for the family when you're really hungry or tired doing lots of things in the Mall... I could have rated them very good coz their Kare-kare and fried Salmon is very delicious and I like the dessert, though the Lechon refill is very slow and stingy.... More

Ate at Cabalen for a late lunch. We wanted a quick but filling meal that was uniquely Kapangpangan located in SM Clark. This is the place. For us the fried kang kong was the best. The kari kari, sisig, and halo halo station was superb. The rest of the entries are above average to average. Choices more limited than their... More

Too bad the staff didn't refill the lechon and there was no kare kare (they say they're the home of the best kare kare)

I was very please when our family availed of the lunch buffet at Cabalen. The staff was so courteous and helpful especially to my son when he was trying to get some marshmallows dipped at the chocolate fountain. The food is delicious and refills are frequent. All in all it was a great experience for us, also for my fiance... More

The only dish we liked is Kare-kare, everything else is average. One thing we noticed too is that they do not replenish the buffets quick enough end we ended up eating the same dish over and over.
