The place was spacious and nice for events, parking was enough and valet was offered.

The buffet spread itself was just three rows including dessert and drinks too. Not bad for the price of P500 on a weekday dinner.

Potato croquettes were soggy like they've been there for a long time

Shrimp wasn't plump and stuck to the skin, it crumbles.

Pad thai was flavorful but it was dripping with oil.

The Beef bulgogi tasted like bistek according to my brother.

Tacos was good (I had two full servings) but then it wasn't classic, they didn't have beans, guacamole or salsa. They used cabbage instead of lettuce too.

Sesame oil chicken tasted ordinary not sure what the tasted should've been

There were a few dishes I didn't try because they didn't look appetizing like the beef salad that looked soupy.

All the juices were good, they were powdered though.

Overall the experience was fine just to try it but lots of other better ones.

If you got invited to a buffet, will you say no? I won't. Hence the trip to 7 Flavors.

Before this invite, I've already been to the place for an ocular. The first floor is a little cozier than the second floor because it has more couches and has more yellow lighting. The second floor area is similar to a typical restaurant.

Their buffet set-up is a bit limited. It's only composed of one long table, one small table and one counter. The long table includes the starters and mains, the small table includes their set of desserts and the counter has the carving station and DIY halo-halo.

Their starters were DIY salad and homemade tacos. Not a fan of salads so I passed on that. According to their COO, their homemade tacos is one of their signature dishes. I got one and filled my tacos with ground meat, cheese and a few slices of cabbage. For me, it was okay. The meat was yummy but felt a bit ordinary.

For their mains, they have a few choices too. I think there's two dishes per type (pork, fish, veggies, chicken, rice). Among those I tried, only Pork Fricasse and Tofu and Kangkong in Oyster Sauce were notable (for me). Pork Fricasse had white sauce similar to that of chicken pastel but the consistency is not as thick. It had a very savory note and the pork strips were not chewy. It's obviously sinful because the oil stands out. The tofu and kangkong were both yummy. The kangkong didn't feel and taste overcooked and the sauce wasn't that salty. For their carving station or the meat station (haha), their roast beef, buffalo chicken and lechon mostly filled up the table. I liked how the roast beef was soft and tender; the mushroom gravy the came with it wasn't bad also. The buffalo chicken was a bit of a disappointment. It wasn't spicy at all. This is coming from someone who has a low tolerance for spiciness. The lechon had a lot of meaty parts but it was drowning in oil.

Only one small table was reserved for desserts so imagine how limited the choices were. The only dish that I was intrigued was Rum Balls because rum :p It was moist, chewy and bittersweet.

I heard a lot of reviews that 7 Flavors do not taste good. For me it was okay because like in any other buffets, there a few stand outs. But there was nothing really special on their menu. If you're paying 399/499 for a buffet, the overall taste is just right.

Smorgasbords or buffets aren’t just a thing in the past, as new restaurants continue to offer meals for a good value up to this day. Back then, it was only the hotels and other posh food places that offer buffet deals and services to the few who are willing to splurge on food. There are a number of restaurants today that offer great deals to the consumers by having ‘eat-all-you-can’ promos. This is where the restaurant, 7 Flavors, comes in and partakes in this buffet fad.

7 Flavors got its name from seven types of flavors, namely, sweet, salty, sour, bitter, spicy, umami, and astringent. For those of you who are familiar with the comical celebrity chef, Chef Boy Logro, who isn’t only famous for his cooking style but for his funny antics as well, let it be known that he is actually a part owner of 7 Flavors restaurant in Addition Hills, Mandaluyong City. You might even get to see him personally if you visit his restaurant and try out their buffet lunch or dinner. Their buffet lunch is priced at Php 399.99 per head on weekdays, while dinner costs Php 499.99. As for weekends and holidays, they serve buffet lunch and dinner at Php 599.99 per person.

What I enjoyed most from the number of food selections in their menu are their tacos. 7 Flavors has a taco station that was specifically made for dining clients who will try out and indulge in prepping up their tacos. You can build your tacos here from scratch, and get to enjoy the lip-smacking beef, together with a load of cheese, sweet and sour salsa, and garlic sauce.

Compared to other affordable buffet stops, 7 Flavors actually excel in their beef dishes. Another one of my fave picks is their beef bulgogi. The beef was tender, and the mild sweetness that you can taste from it, was a nice touch to the dish. It was perfectly paired with their tomato herb rice.

Their soups don’t get left behind either. The crab and corn soup was cooked with a generous amount of ingredients, and I’m happy that it was seasoned just right. Stuffing yourself of the sinigang na salmon sa miso will fill your heart with joy and other feelings, making you miss home and your mom’s home-cooked meals. The miso itself is the “star” of this dish, and its distinct flavor is what makes their sinigang all the more appetizing.

I’ve tried almost all the Buffet restaurant in Manila and to be honest, dishes in 7Flavors are F-R-E-S-H even at Dinner hours especially the Sushi. Trust me when I say you can safely eat here lunch and dinner time. I was stoked when I heard that they have a secret menu which is the Salmon Sashimi, it is super yummy and just after one bite, it makes me wanna go back to Japan 128076🏻

Main dishes are OK! Not oily, not bland. Pizza is crisp, and my ultimate fave is their Tacos. Oh, that crisp, homemade flaky shell! You have to try it. They only have one carving station and limited selection of drinks.

The interesting part is the dishes are not all the same every week at 7Flavors. I’m sure this excites everyone as you get to try different dishes every time you visit.

7 Flavours is a relatively new buffet and Ala-carte restaurant in Addition Hills, San Juan. Their claim-to-fame is that the kitchen is run by celebrity chef Boy Logro. For those who don't know of him, Chef Logro was first known as being a presenter of the daytime cooking show 'Chef Boy Logro: Kusina Master'. He also owns the Chef Logro's Institute of Culinary and Kitchen Services in Cavite.

A few things i liked and appreciated about this place is the spacious parking, nice building facade, cozy reception area, and service in general. There are two floors and different dining areas at this restaurant. The Ala-carte menu is available on the first floor, and the buffet on the second.

At first glace, i was surprised how small the food area of the buffet was. Being used to those with similar price-points, 7 Flavors had relatively limited choices. There was a salad bar, a taco station, eight to ten mains, a few kinds of sushi, and about seven types of dessert. A few of the things i liked were the calamares, beef kare-kare, tomato-spiced rice, and salmon head soup. I enjoyed the taco station and mango-sago the most.

After sampling most of the dishes, i felt a little underwhelmed. I didn't mind paying 600 a head (Saturday night) for the amount or types of food available, but i did mind the unsatisfactory quality of food served. We arrived a few minutes after the place had opened and the food was already cold. The food also seemed like it had been prepared too early, and had been sitting out for a while. The calamares and liston kawali were soggy; while the roast beef and sushi were already dried out.

The cleanliness of the buffet area could also be improved - we were the second ones there, and yet there were squished cake and rice on the floor beside our table. The waitstaff was also a bit disorganized, and buffet trays were not filled quickly enough when dinner service started getting busy.

Despite having some things to still improve on, I believe 7 flavors is still worth a visit - for their Ala-carte menu more than the buffet. The ensaymada and some of their breads the shop are worth coming back for.

*visit sponsored by management.

Here is where I tasted the best ensaymada ever!!! I swear :)

For their buffet, there were too little choices for a P700++ rate. Most of the food are of exquisite and delightful. Staffs are polite and friendly.

Chef Boy Logro's very own buffet restaurant. This one is kind of tucked inside san juan area, and it was quite jam packed that Sunday afternoon.

The total damage to start is PhP600 but i heard during weekdays, the fee is only PhP400. Oh, they accept senior citizen card which i forgot to bring mine-- kidding aside-- let's see what's in store.

On the far side of the restaurant, you can find everything--
128204appetizer
Bread and butter-- i like the tacos' ground meat. It's kind of picante.

128204Salads
Greens, olives, capsicum, onions, chopped hard boiled eggs, tomatoes-- ready to eat kani salad, and a lot of different dressings.
I like the kani salad. And the raspberry vinaigrette.

128204mains
Asian. All can be found in an array of stainless steel warmer. Which reminds me of catering. What i like the best is the spicy Singaporean mixed seafood and the chicken thai curry. The eggplant lasagna was also memorable. The rest were just overwhelmingly tasty my tongue just got a little mixed up.
Oh, the beef at the other side beside the halo-halo station is also good-- tender and cooked medium rare.
The sushis are beside the beef--commendable as well. The rice was cooked the Japanese way.

128204 desserts
Halo halo, ice cream (strawberry, chocolate and vanilla flavors only), brownies, and several jellos which were super sweet. The featured desserts were the best IMO. They say maja blanca was good too but i was so full already.

128204 drinks
I liked the strawberry iced tea the best. They serve coffee but it is not included in the buffet. --aww

Generally, it's not that comparable to high class buffets pero to consider dinadayo rin ito for cheap buffet eats for class B people.

Service was above average! Delayed lang sa pagtanggal bg used plates.

Sweet. Sour. Salty. Bitter. Spicy. Umami. Astringent

Weird --the last flavor. 🤔128540

I'm a fan of buffets. LOL. Who isn't?

I really like this place! It's cheap and gives you that homey feeling because of all the Filipino dishes. The food is good, the ambiance is nice and very cozy. Service is great!

I especially like; their Caesar Salad dressing, Honey Mustard dressing, Roast Beef, Pancit, Calamari and tacos.

Salmon Head in Coconut Milk - this was delicious! I'm a big fan of coconut milk, so of course I liked this. Haha! Spicy too.

I am absolutely raving about their tacos! Delicious! A must-try. I've never seen tacos in a buffet before.

Chef Boy Logro is not only a host in Kusina Master (GMA), he is also a restaurateur. He actually owns 7 Flavors located in Greenhills. They offer buffet and a la carte that you can choose from. We had a dinner buffet. What a great way to spent our friday night, right? Carbs overload! Hehe.
7 Flavors offer Asian Buffet. A bit broad? Yes! That is why I listed my top 5  in the restaurant.
First, Tomato Soup. Too bad, I forgot to take a photo of it. The soup was creamy and flavorful. Other bloggers loved it too! It was a bit spicy, I think because of the pepper. Excessively flavorful that you can use it as a pasta sauce! I want tomato soup now!
Second, Seafood Bombay. I know what you’re thinking right now. Is that the guy who always went to your neighbor and collect money every week? Haha. Just kidding! The name of the dish was interesting that I even asked the Chef why they named it Seafood Bombay. He said that it was because of the indian curry that they used to that specific dish.
Third, Meat Balls with Tangy Sauce. The meat balls was not dry. I liked it because it complements well with the sauce!
Fourth, Potato Wedges. Perfect with baked cheese on top!
Fifth, desserts!!! A lot of choices. From fruits, ice cream, halo-halo and pastries. I personally enjoyed mini banana cupcakes. Moist, not dry.

Monday to Thursday Lunch, 400php and Dinner, 500php
Friday to Sunday Lunch and Dinner, 600php

7 Flavors Buffet is located at 196 A. Mabini St. Brgy. Addition Hills, San Juan Metro Manila.

It's value for your money for Php600. Almost everything on the buffet spread was good, except for the Pork Stroganoff, which was a little tough. The desserts weren't that exceptional, but it was good enough.

Celebrated my birthday here with fambam. Few options though. The meal was all good. You can also reserve them for corporate events or meetings.

Their location was also hard to find especially that the streets in San Juan mostly are one way and narrow.

Everything was worth it!

The food is great! Loved every bits of it! It's just that i didn't like their vanilla cake it taste like a simple cake made in any bakeshop. More improvement on that but the new york cheesecake is a bomb!

Each day they have different cuisine to serve the customers.

Price:
Mon-Thurs lunch 400 dinner 500
Friday-sun and holidays lunch and dinner 600

They also have a function room for 12,15 and 25 persons with the same rate per head.

And yes this is owned by the renowned chef boy logro!

Our Noche Buena dinner celebration last Dec 24 at Chef Boy Logro's restaurant, 7 Flavors Buffet located at Addition Hills in San Juan.

Aside from my family, mom Elaine P and my auntie joined us for dinner that's why it's memorable. I've been to a lot of buffet resto in Manila and glad I found this one. Chef Boy Logro is the famous cooking master in GMA 7. I was surprised that he build this one , nice ambience. , parking lot was huge, aside from the resto there was cafe and bakery also beside it.

Please keep in mind that it's better to have reservation when going here because the dining place on the second floor is not that big.

They offer 7 kinds of delicious cuisine like Chinese, Mexican , Italian , Filipino, Japanese etc. few food selection but the food was great! I was able to eat a tacos there , I love tacos ! Naka 2 rounds ako, there were Kare- Kare too and so many to mention. All I know is we enjoyed the food and the rates are affordable , i think it's around 600 pesos .

A must try buffet resto in Manila. Service was great too!

We hosted a party here and it was disappointing. Food was not hot at all, except for the soup, then fruit flies were visible on their fruits and vegies area. To think there were waiters roaming around, they didnt seem to care that there were insects on the buffet table. Refilling of food was slow too. Thank goodness parking is free and convenient.

Our family was supposed to have lunch at Guevarra's but unfortunately, it was fully booked for the whole December. We decided to eat at 7 Flavors since we had pleasant lunch there last June or July. Surpprisingly, unlike the other buffet restaurants, 7 Flavors wasn't fully booked for December. For Mon.-Thurs. Lunch, bufet is priced at around 400 pesos.

We arrived at 12 30 pm for lunch. Upon entering the restrauant I noticed that it was really crowded. I was surprised to be led to one of the tables on the first floor since the first floor used to be reserved for the a la carte section. I asked one of the waitresses if the buffet was really on the first floor, and she said yes. I was really annoyed that we were seated on the crowded first floor. We also had a hard time getting in and out of our seats since the table was at a narrow corner of the restaurant.

At 12 30 pm, it was unusual that almost all of the dishes at the buffet station were empty. I was so hungry and pissed. I asked the servers to refill all the dishes but it took such a long time to refill refill everything 128544 Good thing that I thought of going to the second floor to get food. When i went up the second floor, I realized that maybe the buffet was extended to the first floor since there was a christmas party at the second floor. But, this was still no excuse for the empty dishes at the buffet on the first floor. The second floor buffet was better than the first floor because all the dishes were filled and everything was still fresh and hot. The ambiance was also better there. There was also a carving station on the second floor, which was absent on the first floor.

After 20 mins., the buffet was finally partially filled. Yes, partially because most all of the dishes were filled and after they became empty again, it took forever for them to be refilled.

Overall, the taste of the dishes were okay. Just like our first time here, my favorite would still be the tofu sisig. I like the crunchy taco shell, didn't like the taco filling though. There was a salad station but I didn't pay much attention to it. The lechon kawali and calamari was also good. The roast beef at the carving station, on the second floor was so-so, it was a little dry.

Small cakes and halo-halo were available at the dessert station. These were also okay, nothing special. They took a long time refilling the saba for the halo-halo 128553 I suggest that they put ice cream next time, for a better dessert station.

Price: 3/5
Ambiance: 2/5
Service 1/5

More than adequate lunch buffet for only P360.00 (weekdays)! Be sure to try their tacos, lettuce wraps and other items from their grilling station. I'm not sure how often they cycle their buffet items, but regardless, definitely a place worth revisiting.
