Cafe Ilang Ilang, Manila Hotel still maintain the standard of a five star hotel. The presentation of the international buffet is excellent. The salad bar to seafood and meat dishes are fresh and delicious. We all have a wonderful lunch meeting.

Food looked appealing but actually much of it was cool, bordering on cold when we ate it. The fabulous sirloin joint was overcooked and sadly the crab had seen better... More

Wide range of cuisines to choose from. I tasted my first horse meat here in the Filipino section. The Japanese station should not be missed and of course their desserts. The only reason it didn't get a 10 is because of the lay out. I found the sections to scattered.
