I super enjoyed my dining experience at Sambokojin because of the wide variety of savory dishes to choose from. There were viands that were ready to eat and others were good to grill. The staff were friendly and very attentive. Price is reasonable and they also give birthday freebies. I would recommend this restaurant to people who love Asian dishes.

We dined in on 25/03/2018 (with my wife),At the first look, the food looked amazing and outstanding but it was a big mistake.
Everything on the buffet was absolutely tasteless, hot food was completely cold, buffet was never replenished, waiters were too busy singing happy birthday songs rather than giving the customers basic needs of water, clearing tables and cutlery. Chefs were too busy laughing and joking around right in the front of paying customers and not caring to refill the buffet. Sushi buffet looked outstanding but everything kind of tasted like same, there was hardly any difference just the volume. Roast meat was as hard as my shoes. Desserts were a real disappointment, crepes were rubbery, ice cream were full of ice crystals, rest everything was inside the chillers manned by way too busy staff who didn't care enough to serve the guest. We were seated there for about 3 hours, yet there was no manager or any in charge in sight talking or serving the customers. As many times i went on the buffet it was always empty especially the hot side, salmon was not refilled for 3 hours as i saw only half side of the head lying on the plate whenever i passed by, tempura was soggy and tasteless.

Bottom line is if you are not able to maintain the quality of so much variety than dont put so much out.

I felt like putting 1776/- pesos in garbage as i didnt enjoy anything, not even the barbecue dishes, everything was just wrapped around with bacon (enoki mushrooms, tomago, cheese, and more that i dont remember.

Really pathetic food and service.

Our family celebrated my daughter's b-day at Sambokojin SM Fairview. The ambiance is good, there is a wide selection of japanese and korean cuisine and refill is not a problem. We enjoyed the grill your own buffet, lettuce goes well with the BBQ. The varity of drinks and dessert are very satisfactory. The service staff are warm and friendly, never tired to serve us with a smile considering that there is no service charge in this resto. Parking is not a problem. We recommend this place for special occassions, surely we will be coming back.

Every year for the past 3 yrs, Our family ( family of 5) make it a point to celebrate special occasions at Sambokojin SM Fairview and we were never disappointed. Sambokojin offers a very wide range of Korean and Japanese cuisine and unlike other restos that offers buffet meals , refilling of foods was never a problem.The dining area is huge and customers can easily go around selecting their foods. It also serves varieties of drink such fruit juices, sodas, fruit shakes.Our family enjoys grill your own buffet as part of bonding activity.The ambiance of the place is just right. The best part of going to Sambokojin is the service of their staff, they are very attentive to our needs, the service is fast and courteous considering this establishment has no service charge.We surely continue to patronize Sambokojin.
