Service could have been better. Waiters were a lot but no one was checking if there are still clean plates/cups available. Reaching out to waiters is not a very hood idea at all as they turn a deaf ear to you when you ask or request for something.

Nothing new. Good selection for healthy eating peeps. There is an ample amount of fish to grill and salads. There was no Lechon (pig).128540

Team dinner buffet is the perfect place for a big group. It was a disappointment because we arrived almost 8 pm but the food is almost wipe out the refill is very slow and they annouce that last service is 9:30. I settle what is there the sushi and maki in fairness its very good specially the salmon and tuna sashimi. The roastbeef is terrible its like rubber the fish fillet is unforgiving. There is no wide selection of cheese and cold cuts like other buffet resto and the seafood choices very limited. Make your own pasta it arrived in our table after 30 mins and after my dessert terrible. I was not able to taste the halohalo bcoz its gone and no more refill. Other food is just ok typical taste of buffey resto just right not great.

Handling of walk in customers needs to be improved - while, yes - reservations should be made to avoid inconvenience, having walk-in queues especially during holidays should be expected.

Took us almost over an hour to get a table, and to think we were #21 (by the time we got in, the queue is already at #70+).

Anyway, food is okay - I think I prefer it over Shang's buffet, tbh.

Now, upon asking for the bill, we had to wait for what felt like an hour to have it completely processed. What gives?!

Anyway, never going back here. The service is just deplorable for me.

Standard buffet fare. Food was very mediocre at best.

For my first plate, I got some sushi rolls, tuna and salmon sashimi. Sushi was terrible, the rice was super cold and hard. For my second plate, I tried the sizzling spareribs and I loved the pepper heat of it. I also got two pieces of spicy Portuguese sausage which was quite good. I had a slice of Ube cake and some cupcakes for dessert. Nothing special but not bad.

I expected to be wowed, but instead left way too full and temporarily satiated. A solid spot for a meal, but by no means an outstanding buffet.

Buffet 101 will always be on my Top 5 buffet here in Manila.
Wide array of food, from cold cuts to their dessert section!

Can you tell this isn't my plate for lack of carbs? 9786

Buffet 101 is our go-to blowout for team lunches. This is because we have young'uns with appetites! I noticed that the cold soba wasn't available but the mantao was there! Yay!

This place is incomparable to the crowds during Christmas.

Second time here and this very long buffet (still the longest, I think), still amazes me. At noontime, this place is jampacked, especially during weekdays and pay days. A voucher from MetroDeal for a weekday lunch would cost P559 (compared to the P899 rate during weekends and holidays). With this, Buffet 101 has been the primary choice of the working class for birthday celebs, treats and even lunch meetings.

My personal favorites are the Japanese maki (more than 10 variants) tempura and sashimi. They say the roast beef is really worth the long line. The ramen (though located at the other end of the buffet), is something I'd like to try in future visits. You just can't go wrong with Japanese food in buffets. The Chinese and Korean buffet have also been our favorites.

Dessert choices at Buffet 101 do not fail to delight. Chocolate cakes, specialty pastries, fondue, fruits and even gummy candies abound. The buffet also has a wide choice of ice cream and even halo-halo!

In the photo is the sparkling red wine jelly. The description doesn't disappoint as this dessert is indeed sparkling (see the "frozen" bubbles?) wirh a mild taste of red wine without the strong wine taste of some.

This is also the only buffet I've tried with a dozen coffee choices. They do have their own coffee maker, offering the standard brew, mocha, latte, cappuccino, mochaccino. They also partnered with Nescafé for more coffee choices.

The ambiance is pure bliss which proves how this place lives up to its hotel-like facilities and service (yes, even the restrooms give you that hotel-like feeling).

Describing Buffet101 is as exhilarating and exciting as the buffet itself. Try it yourself to believe!

This was a joint birthday celebration for four people in our group. I find that the food did not disappoint. Maybe I knew what to expect already. I find that their service did. It took so long to get the bill and have it signed. But they were really courteous.

Shouldn't there be a birthday cake for three? None was served. Oh well.

I feel like eating more than my my usual helping today so we rushed to Glorietta to eat at Tenka ( a Japanese eat all you can hot pot ) but unfortunately they said they will be open until 2PM only. So the next good option to indulge is Buffet 101.
It's my first time to try this Resto.. I've been to Vikings and Yakimix so I can make comparison.

I like the interiors , feels like I'm in a a 5 star hotel buffet Resto. There's a lot of food to choose from.. It's 138 Meters buffet table ( as they claim ) that has Japanese, Chinese, Filipino, Italian, Mediterranean etc.. Desserts are good too. 128077128077128077 at 699 per head on weekdays is not a bad deal, specially if you really love to eat and you have a big appetite. 128540

Service is efficient, and the staff are really attentive and willing to help you out carry your overloaded plate. 128557128514128514128514

After my 3rd plate I gave up. I knew I've reached my spec quota for the day. 128540128540128540128540

I went out with a very happy tummy. 128522128522 and a satisfied cravings... I will sure come back again..
