We are sorry but this restaurant is not currently accepting online reservations through ResDiary.
I was pleasantly surprised with their lunch buffet.
The food is good. However, i was a bit irritated when we were given a different table from the original reserved table. It should have been alright, but the space given to us was at the back which is not so open area.
Food is really great and I enjoyed it. I just wish they have a sweeter taste of wine or option either you prefer white or red wine. But overall rating was great! I enjoyed a lot the indian section.
I love the ambiance :)
A small spread with no losers, and worth every return. Although you might want to label the cheeses. Thank you for the meal!
Only the prime rib disappointed us. If the prime rib can be improved, the experience will be perfect
Food and ambience is excellent. Will go back again.
Numerous food choices. Simple yet delicious.
Food was great, even my kids enjoued it. Love the desserts.
Good food. Great ambiance. Very accommodating staff - always wearing a smile on their faces. Will definitely visit again.
Food options are really enticing!
Too overpriced for the limited food selection. Food quality and taste are so-so. Not your value-for-money buffet choice. The servers are attentive and responsive to the needs of their customers, though it took quite long to receive our bill. We had to approach the front desk just so we could pay our bill and leave.
You should also offer 50%off on buffet time😜 For early booking
Great food selection and very accommodating staff
Staffs are very nice and helpful. Different cuisine - great selection of dishes ( i love the made your own pasta idea) . I just find the price a little overrated, if i'm gonna compare it with some of the 5 star restaurants I've visited.
The taste of the good was great. The thing that i think would need further evaluation is the way the food was presented. Most of the cooked dishes were covered. You would have to check each and everyone to find out if you like them or not. Though they do have labels, say adobo or caldereta, i would normaly pass these dishes because to my mind i already know what they taste like and wont bother peaking under the lid. Un like in other buffets (say dusit the pantry) for example a dish presented openly labeled "adobong pusit" which are normally would not try. But since it was presented very enticingly, like the sauce looked so black and thick, i was tempted to try it since it looked so special. Plus the fact that the dishes or the food did not have their own lighting added to the dullness of the presentation. Usually i get up to 4 plates of food moderatley filled of course. With food exchange, i was got only a plate and a half I was not encouraged to try the rest because i think i could not see the rest of the dishes or they were poorly lit.
Everything was great. Looking forward to eating here again.
Always a gastronomic experience for us when we dine at Foeed Exchange Novotel Cubao. Thanks for the delicious lineup most especially your special pizza to die for 👍👍👍
Staff working the evening of my reservation had poor customer service skills. They did not attend to our needs in a timely manner. 3 different waiters brushed us off when we asked for water and a picture of our table. They say, "Will be right back and never returned to our table." We have dined in many other places including restaurants in the US where we are originally from but never treated poorly. And to be considered a 5 star hotel, the food was not of high quality at all. The roast beef that was served contained pure fat and no meet. Not to many choices to choose from. To top it all this evening should of been special for me because my daughters and I were celebrating Father's Day but your service made our dining experience worst. I approached the manager prior to us leaving with our concerns. Hopefully, something is done to improve your staffs customer service skills. Customers treated this way should be compensated being Novotel is considered a 5 star hotel. Please be free to contact me for at 639064831041.
The selection of food was just right and taste is awesome especially the beef kare kare and the various selection of pasta. The staff were awesome and very courteous .
Fabulous Buffet .... Worth the price ...
