PH | Pigging Out at City Buffet

A friend once told me that buffets are the best places to eat in.  There's something for each discerning palate, making it easier to make decisions on where to eat and what type of cuisine to try.

I admit, pigging out's a past-time.  An enjoyable one most especially when you're with family and friends who enjoy a good meal as much as you.  And it's a good thing that here in the Metro, those newfangled luxury buffet restaurants just keep popping out of nowhere, tempting you with everything they have to offer.

And one of the fairly newer ones is City Buffet Restaurant, located in Robinson's Galleria.

City Buffet Restaurant in Robinson's Galleria

You know the drill.  With over 160 dishes (in different types of cuisine), City Buffet Restaurant tries to play with the other big guns in this new niche (you know who they are).

But what sets them apart are their prices.  Compared to the competition, this resto charges a much lower fee (drinks are included as well).


The food is ok.  There are a few hits and misses (as what can be expected in these buffet type arrangements).

The spread

But at least you've got variety.

Loved everything in this plate

Loved the tempura, but sushi still needs work.  Sushi rice was really dry.

Mousse, cheesecakes and chocolates.  Desserts were fine but not really that luscious and rich.

Drinks were good, especially the fruit punch

Would I try them again?  Sure.  Why not.  They do offer some good dishes, anyway.  J

  1. They are definitely better priced than other buffets, but the sushi! The sushi needs to be perfect! Not dry! Hehe! I love sushi, just to explain my violent reaction.

    But for Php400, I guess I could still give City Buffet a try :)

    1. In a perfect world, it should be tlaga! Pero at P400 bucks lang, they're forgiven. Hehehe! =)

  2. I'm trying to avoid this place because I can always go to Sambokojin. hahaha. :p

    1. I haven't tried that yet. It's shabu shabu right? =)
