Visited with a family party of 8 for weekend brunch. Great service from the waiting staff looking after our table. The food was of good quality and a wide variety of local and international cuisine and a very nice desert selection.
Lovely option for a lazy Sunday afternoon at the Shangri-La

Our friend invited us for dinner in Makati Shangrila. The buffet for dinner was just amazing and sumptuous that I was unsure which one to choose first - from seafoods to dessert, it’s like they have everything for everyone - for local and foreigners. The place also had a relaxed ambience. I enjoyed the Filipino dishes and dessert. I could not fault it. Unfortunately, I forgot to take photos of the buffet.

For the second time, I would keep a very bad experience of this buffet.
Sorry but no more Circles for us.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights and had the breakfast each morning.

The breakfast buffet was huge with offerings from many countries such as Arabic, Indian, Filipino, Japanese etc

What I noticed is that the breakfast did not change one item during my 4 night stay. Whilst a great breakfast one does get bored with the same offerings day and day out. as each day passed i got less excited about the buffet.This prevented a 5 star rating of my review.

Staff overall were excellent and very helpful except one server one morning who did not seem happy and did not bring any of our requests like mango juice, freshly cut mangoes to our table.

But still is still one of the better buffet breakfast in Makati.

The food was delicious. Both the breakfast buffet and the dinner buffet was amazing. Lots of types of food as well as made to order items. The dessert bar was amazing. The restaurant alone was worth staying at the hotel.
