With all the lighting and crystal, this place was done very nice. They even had a selection of wine which was surprising. There was a lot of different types of food to choose from. Japanese, Korean, Thai and Philippine. I was very pleased.

Buffet 101 is one of the best buffet restaurants in the Philippines. I've been to Buffet more than 2 times already and i never want to miss the shrimps being cooked straight from the aquarium! Plus the unlimited red wine and the fried spicy crabs!!!! You get lots of food choices for less. Some buffet restaurants have several food options... More

celebrated "thanks giving" here last Thursday since were working like an american hahaha. I must say that the foods are better than the vikings, though they have to improve their "dessert". NOTE : cheaper than vikings.

I honestly underestimated Buffet 101. I didn't expect such wide variety of food and drink choices. Also, most of my buffet experience I'd get disappointed because the food that I like gets stockout easily but during our time here there was enough supply. I ate all the things I like in buffets and tried other things too. It was a... More

It's actually quite a huge place and could still get crowded at times but I don't get the hype though because to be completely honest, the food they're serving aren't that delicious. Might as well go to other buffet restaurants like Vikings and Dads. Too expensive for the quality of their food.

We are a frequent diners there and even at YAKIMIX MOA. CHEF PAUL always prepares the food we want and even asked the server to bring it to our table.... More

This place have a amazing selection of food, great variety from seafood options to roast meats, traditional foods; lots of options to choose from. Loved the fruit smoothies, great desert selections, again from traditional options to Western options, so easy to over eat!

It's eat all you can, so expect a big crowd, a rush to the lechon and roast meats, and a prolonged time to refill the ebi tempura and tuna sashimi. Resuts? As expected of course. For me Vikings is still tops as far as number of selections, Buffet 101 second, Fiesta Filipino (same location) ranks a distant last. Ambiance is... More

One of the best buffet restaurants I've tried so far. There were a lot of food variety and not served limited to a time. Definitely one of my favorite buffets!
