Food is great. So much variety. Staff are courteous, service was fast. We came in too early for our reservations but our table was ready. We were accommodated immediately.
Limited selection of food
Food is fresh and delicious. Price is acceptable and they regularly have promos. The staff goes beyond their means to be of service. I was just asking if they had some pancit in the buffet unfortunately there wasn't. I was surprised when the chef brought a big bowl of freshly cooked pancit to our table. Good service!
A little disappointed on services as well on the food. Refill of food takes time. Not good value for money.
Dinner buffet is a bit pricey, i totally recommend to use Bdo cards debit/credit, they do have discounts on buffet.
quite a limited selection of food but nonetheless the food is delicious
More choices of Japanese food please
Keep up the good work and more power!
Well-curated curated spread with ample amount of selection. The Indian cuisine was my favorite.
I have always enjoyed dining at novotel buffet. ☺️ Theres adequate food selection and the dishes are superb!
Staff service is great. there is a wide range of food but nothing extra ordinary..Indian section is great though..Nonetheless good food and yummy desserts.
I appreciate the accommodation given to me as an accor member I was given an exclusive area at no extra cost. Thank you food exchange for that privilege
Staff are veey friendly and always provide good service.
*Indian Food especially the Naan Bread was the best! Also loved their Caesar Salad All the rest were meh food and were not served fresh. Roast Chicken was too dry and salty, even the roast loin pork (very obvious it was out on display for a long long time -- hints of recycled food and sauces for the roast beef too salty. Distracting flies on our table -- had to ask for candles twice to help shoo the files away. the Biko tasted weird -- it was not soft like Malagkit as grains were thorny and hard (again hints of use of recycled ordinary rice instead of malagkit rice), Lack of sauce viand options. seafood rice and fried crab rice and steamed rice. But loved the laksa as well. Mostly hit and miss. Ice Cream served was already watery/liquidy (inconsistent temperature with the vanilla flavor vs. the watery/tunaw version of the coffee latte). Variety of viands/dishes were deeply lacking.
Food is not so great. I hope you can improve choices and taste. Ambiance and atmosphere is good.
my booking went well, we were so welcome, everyone seems to care for a memorable experience with great choices of food & friendly staff
Great Work and hospitality
Good quality service :)
Vegetable choices is very limited. The food in the pots are good, but very inconvenient to use, as the covers are to heavy to lift, thus discouraging me to return. The roast beef in the carving station lacks flavor. For me, It is actually the worst food choice in the entire selection. Cheese choices are also very few, and placed in an area that you will not be able to see it clearly. The layout may be corrected further for a more pleasurable experience.
I wish to commend the staff for being courteous and accomodating. Though I wish they had bigger name tags so that I can properly address them. Food was great and delicious especially the marinated fish. My family enjoyed the food selection. Thank you, Novotel!
