Definitely one of the best buffet restaurants. The selection is well spread. The food tastes good and are presented well. I especially love the fact that you get a big discount if you have prestige card.

The best breakfast buffet in Manila. What a way to start your day - Filipino, Asian, and international dishes to choose from. Made to order eggs, different kinds of breads, fruits and cereals. Cold and hot dishes and OK coffee. Friendly and helpful staff.

The breakfast in Cafe Ilang Ilang is probably the best in Manila. You are spoiled for the choice. From fruits to yogurt to food from japanese to indian to chinese, you have a lot of choices. I like it the most.

I was super excited when we were planning to try this buffet out for dinner since it belongs to the top rated restaurants in our country. Albeit I enjoyed my experience, it was still not able to meet my expectations. The tempura, which was the first thing I got since it's my fave, is a disappointment. I really didn't mind... More
