10 Best Value-for-Money Buffets in Manila
From hotpots to Spanish fare, SPOT.ph lays it all on the smorgasbord table.
Published on: Jul 9, 2010 - 10:24am

 

Manila is no stranger to good buffets--overflowing, satisfying food that can fill platefuls to satisfy all kinds of cravings. Whether you're on the lookout for variety, value-for-money price tag or novelty, we give you a list of the best buffets you can find in the city (listed in no particular order) without paying five-star-hotel prices:



1. Yakimix
Address: 2/F Forum Bldg. 270 Tomas Morato, Quezon City (385-7500, 332-8073); Hobbies of Asia, Macapagal Boulevard, Pasay City (387-8120, 387-8112); G/F SM Mall of Asia, Pasay City (385-7500)

How much to shell out: P580 eat-all-you can on Saturdays and Sundays and P499 lunch-all-you-can from Mondays to Fridays; add P55 for drinks; children below 4 feet will be charged P380 only.

A new player in the buffet business, Yakimix, which opened in 2009, gets a nod for its spacious dining area and their variety of Chinese and Japanese dishes on the buffet spread. The place gets extra points for the grilled meat choices and sushi selection, plus smokeless table grills that lets you dine happily without smelling like food.

2. KingOne Rotary Hotpot
Address: M2-A Lower Hobbies of Asia, #8 Macapagal Ave., Pasay City (556-1370)

How much to shell out: P479 for an eat-all-you-can and drink-all-you-can from Monday to Saturday; P529 for dinners, Sundays and holidays (without drinks), upgrade to drink-all-you-can for an additional P65

The appeal of KingOne Rotary Hotpot lies in the hotpot ingredients that roll by on a conveyor belt right beside your table. With over 90 ingredients to choose from, and six soup bases available (Satay Soup, Century Egg Wansoy Soup, Spicy Szechuan Soup, Plain Soup, Hong Kong Curry Soup, and Korean Kimchi Soup), hotpot fans will also get a free dish for every two eat-all-you-can meals availed. Choose from their Spare Ribs Salt and Pepper, Yang Chow Fried Rice, and the Oyster Cake to go with your hotpot meal.

Remember: no sharing and no doggie bags, they charge P100 for leftovers.



3. Kamay Kainan
Address: West Avenue, Quezon City (371-4659) ; Kalayaan Avenue corner Malamig Street, Quezon City (921-5904 ); Market! Market!, Taguig (889-9883); TriNoma Mall (435-0061, 916-7178)

How much to shell out: P248 per person without drinks/ P295 per person with bottomless iced tea daily

If an all-Pinoy buffet spread is on the agenda, you can't go wrong with the reasonably priced buffet at Kamay Kainan. Their 2-hour maximum stay rule may sway those who like to have leisurely meals, but the place still attracts those who love Filipino food classics: Lechon paksiw, fried bangus, fried tilapia, binagoongang baboy, papaitan, caldereta, menudo, beef steak, kare-kare, pork sinigang, beef nilaga, adobong pusit, inihaw na liempo, and steamed oysters

    looks like you failed to mention City Buffet and Vikings. I'm surprised Tramway is included in your list.

    although we aim for a good deal - we also aim for clean ambiance, good service & sanitation. from the top 10 in the list - i must disagree with kamayan specially the one in market market. The feeling was eating in a flee market - utensils not properly handled. they don't sanitized over hot water. the food was bathing in oil & most of it was either salty or full of ajinamoto. the waiters are so busy talking to each other they only bother to check if u have watery ice tea at the first when we came in. when we were done, the waiter ask for the senior citizen id of my parents for their tip - this is on top of their service charged! what a very disappointing experience

    its not within manila, but i really recommend the breakfast buffet at bag of beans in tagaytay, the main branch not the one near the rotunda. nice food, nice place. at 11pm, it becomes lunch buffet. however, its only on weekends. come early, the place can get packed.

    I've heard of friends too who've had the same encounter with Somethin' Fishy. I'll never go nor bring my family to dine there. Sorry but I'd rather eat somewhere else... And true, they had the guts to charge SomethinYucky@Somethin'Fishy's sister's bf's meal... It just proved to us that they're not really thinking.

    *Sorry forgot to edit my previous comment - contains many errors*. Here is the corrected one.

    My sister and I, along with her bf ate yesterday at Somethin' Fishy in Eastwood City. I availed of their dinner buffet while my sis and her bf ordered a chicken inasal a la carte. They waited for some time for their order while I happily munched away at my food. Sometime later, my sister's order came and she quickly got a drumstick and ate all of it. Her boyfriend also got a piece of wings and while he was making himay the chicken, SHIT! he found a grilled cockroach sandwiched somewhere in the fleshy part of the chicken wings. Kadiri talaga I can still remember his reaction so my sister had to call a waiter and have him take a look at her bf's plate. We failed to take a picture of the whole thing because we were still very shocked at what happened.

    Would you like to know what the management did? They only said "sorry" and asked my sister if they would like to replace the whole meal. My sister, being pacifistic and all, could only utter "okay" and had the a la carte menu changed to a buffet dinner na lang.
    Now I know what you all are thinking. It must have been st*p*d for her to say that. She didn't want to make a commotion but had it happened to me, I would have made a big scene right then and there. Unfortunately, I had to respect her decision not to make a big deal out of it, much to my disapproval since she was the one who ate something out of that disgusting meal.

    Because of what happened, I had lost my appetite and had contented myself na lang with their miso soup and desert. I did not bother to speak up anymore in utter disbelief of what had just taken place
    .
    When we had asked for our bill, I found out that the buffet dinner for my sister's bf got FULLY CHARGED to us. I would understand had they charged us for MY meal only but for offending the sensibilities of people, they should have charged free my sister's bf's buffet meal. I am very disappointed over what happened. We did not bother to charge them about it since nga my sister did not want any hassle.

    Sorry if my comment was very lengthy to read. I just have to blurt all this out. Masama ang loob ko over what happened, masama din ang loob ko that my sister had to be pacifistic and all about the situation. I would understand her since we were brought up that way by our equally pacifistic parents - something not uncommon about our Filipino culture.

    I hope that this reaches the management of Somethin' Fishy and I certainly hope they improve their sanitation practices. Search for cockroach and somethin' Fishy and you'd come across some comments about it online. I do not know if they are true or what but I am very sure that what happened to us was a true-to-life nightmare-of-a-buffet that I will certainly never forget. I will never go back to Somethin' fishy and will urge my friends to do the same. I hope you do too. If you do, check your ordered dishes very well. You wouldn't want some creeping, unexpected guest served on your food after you've eaten a hearty portion of it right?

    We tried Tramway @ Banawe on my last B-day (july, 2010) for only Php195 it was GREAT for "Eat all u can"! The resto is often fully-packed, but every now and then the crew refill the food unlike in other eat all you can waiters take a long time to refill the food. We love the chicken and don't forget to try the BEST STEAMED LAPU-LAPU in sweet sauce!
    Checked out their profile at Facebook - Tramway Restaurant.

    yakimix is great, substitute rice for california makis sure enough you'll get more than your money's worth. kingone is also great, i love the squid balls with mozzarella stuffings.

    yep i have to agree with most of you saying that the food in cabalen and kamay kainan tastes like crap.

    i wish i could eat again in Pilo, i'm craving for their chicharon aleta, too bad they had to close down.

    @Ana ... try Yakimix. Aside from their array of japanese buffet, you can do some cooking/smokeless grilling. But of course you know the side effect of doing some cooking inside a resto ... you adhere the smell of it.
    My only dissappointment is ... i think they could do better with their dessert entree ... they could pick better cakes, etc. But it's definitely way better than KK, Cabalen.

    I Always enjoye Dad's Ultimate Buffet. Value for money talaga but really really crowded anyday of the week.

    Same is true with Yaki-MIX, Been to their MOA and Macapagal branches and they are always crowded.

    King -one is OK if you like HOT-POT.

    I especially like Alba's when I want a more quiet and subdued dining experience kasi hindi masyadong maraming tao. Their COCHINILLO is to die for. Also try going to their Tomas Morato Branch during dinner where they serve two types of Paella.

    Brazil Brazil was OK if you are a meat eater but wouldnt recommend the othr things on their buffet spread.

    I must agree with most comments here that Kamay Kainan is indeed the WORST of all buffets most especially their WEST Ave. branch. The food was cold so the only thing I looked forward to enjoying was ice cream but when we were there, the waiters told us that ice cream was unavailable.

    Haven't been to Cabalen in ages. The price difference between Cabalen and Dad's is so small that I end up at Dad's everytime I am at the Glorietta area.

    Something Fishy and Tramway pass my expectation for a buffet priced at Php200. Common guys- at today's prices, their buffet is a steal!

They're just about the lousiest "paella restaurants" in town. There's a few home-made paella vendors who set up shop in the Salcedo Market on Saturdays and Legazpi Market on Sundays, those are pretty good, PERO WALANG TATALO SA PAELLA NG LOLA KO!

    You guys should try Tong Yang Hot Pot & Shabu-shabu along Jupiter street in Makati. For PHP600+ nett, you'll be treated to a wide selection of seafoods and meat that would definitely satisfy any level of hunger. I tried it out with my fiance and her friends a few months ago and we've been frequently dining there ever since.

    Leslie's in Alabang (at the back of Westgate) also offers buffet. They have nice ambiance (old filipino style decors) plus they have a waterfalls inside. The food is so-so, not that impressive (like dads) but a little bit better than cabalen (where the food is always malamig, except for the bulalo soup lol!)

    Didn't know Alba has a buffet as well. Will surely try that one.

    I don't think Kamay Kainan should be on the list. Their food indeed tastes like smoke and there are baby cockroaches on their serving station. Sanitation committee should be on to them!

    My top buffet restos are King One, Spirals and Heat. The last two may be more pricey but you get your money's worth naman

    Somethin' Fishy's food was good kaso nga lang hindi ako nasarapan sa dessert nila. Marami pang tao when we went there the last time tapos they were renovating the second floor so it was very noisy and the aircon was not working. My relatives even talked to the manager about that matter and they said that they will do something about it. But the overall food, my rating is 3/5 since I didn't like the dessert and the uncooperative crew including the manager. I only enjoyed their breakfast buffet since it was their specialty, their tempura and sushi.

    Somethin' Fishy's food was good kaso nga lang hindi ako nasarapan sa dessert nila.

    @anonymous calls something fishy "the best menu I had tasted"??

    I have tried almost everything on the list.

    I think Alba's is delish!

    Went to tramway. Very affordable but was not so impressed.

    Dad's is common favorite until we found a cigarette butt on our seafood (clams).
    Didn't like how they habndled our complaint.
    We even had to pay for our food even if we could no longer eat after our first shock bite.

    Cabalen's quality could still be improved.
    I would not go back excited.

    Something fishy, for the cheap price it will do.
    Just ignore the poor service and can get cramped.

    eew kamay kainan and cabalen made it to the list, food is disgusting. When we ate in kamay kainan, there were a lot of small ipis around!and the only thing that tastes good in Cabalen is their bulalo soup. I'd go for Kamayan anytime..their prices dont differ much.

    the cheap price of kamay kainan enticed us to try their buffet, but eek! hindi masarap and malamig-lamig pa yung pagkain :(

    Kamay Kainan was the worst buffet that I ever tasted. Their food taste so bad and have poor quality plus you have to fall in a long line to get your food especially on weekends. Cabalen is quite similar to KK. Saisaki Kamayan and Dads have average quality of food but not all of the dishes in the selection taste good.

    Sweet Inspiration's Mongolian buffet was the best Mongolian buffet I had tasted while Somethin' Fishy's menu was the best menu I had tasted.

    I would like to try Tramway's buffet since it looks good and affordable.
