“Buffet 101 - Robinsons Magnolia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2012

It was my first time to dine at Buffet 101. It's got an international array of dishes that had me wondering about choices, choices, choice but only one stomach to handle them all. The food ranges from Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai, Italian, American and European. No Mexican though.

Some spots are to warm to dine in because of so much cooking going on. However, the seating is wide so no worries about that. The place looks elegant. It's a eat and drink all you can place.

Tofu, fish fillet, sushi, sashimi, broccoli with cheese, ziti, risotto, lamb leg, prawns, mussels, miso are what I ate. Desserts are also pick and eat all you can. There are many choices, even for kids, but the desserts I ate was a chocolate fudge cake, kiwi, seedless grapes, vanilla yogurt. And for drinks, I had fresh watermelon juice out of the blender.

So many choices to pick from. If you're going there, be sure you have the appetite and an empty stomach. But don't eat too fast. The secret to enjoying buffet is to take your time eating and digesting. 1,050 Pesos or roughly 27 US Dollars per head. It's a bit steep but you'll be really full and satisfied.

“Great Place to Pig Out!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2012

Good variety buffet! I liked the grilled seafood, the curry and the pasta. Was not really impressed with the pizza as it tasted like old bread and the Chinese cuisine because the dimsum were just not good. Beer, Iced Tea, Fruit shakes are also included. As well as Red Ribbon cakes!

Tip: Try to get a table near the buffet table.

“lunch price sooooo worth it ;)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2012

compared to yaki mix, for the same price, you get a better ambiance and dessert and drinks selection that was generous. fresh fruit shakes and beer with the buffet cost was for me plus points - no added costs.

“Good food, short spread”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

I don't know if it's just me but I like having a lot of choices when having a buffet meal. I just thought that their choices was a bit limited. But even though i only had a few choices, their food was definitely delicious. I appreciate them always refilling the Japanese food area. Their desserts are also good. :)

“Great Food in Great Ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 October 2012

Our team ate here and had so much fun! The buffet spread is not as overwhelming as Vikings so we were able to take it slow and enjoy our dining. Like any other place, not ALL dish are superbly delish. But it was okay because you can always find something that will please your taste buds. Very much worth it and I might be a regular customer :)
