Buffet has lots of options, meaty western stuff, sushi, desert. Some of it is a bit cold though, they need to turn up the heating pads, who wants cold ribs?

Trip Advisor rates The Heat #1 in the area, and you won’t question why. Superb staff, and amazing variety of spectacular food for every palate and every nationality - breakfast, lunch and dinner. Visit The Heat at least once while you’re in the Makati area....More

My family are regulars at Circles but what I'm impressed with is they still remember me even if I go there without my family. They provide me with the same service I receive from them if I go with my friends.

Varies between P1000 to P1500. The sea food specials are the most expensive but well worth the price. Lobster, mussels clams Large shrimp. Eat all you can. Highly recommended.
