About
Café 1228 is all about the freshest foods, the finest flavors and abundant choice. It’s hard to know where to turn first: One of the five custom cooking stations where chefs prepare to order? The buffet that’s bigger than your eyes and wider than your smile? The dessert spread that makes you want to start there first? We’d love to help, but we have the same problems ourselves. For all-day dining, there’s a full à la carte menu filled with steaks and grills, salads and sandwiches, burgers, pastas, pizzas, wonton noodle soup and local favorites – and a children’s menu that should satisfy the most demanding of young diners. The service is attentive, the atmosphere is casual, and the tastes are something you’ll want to stay another day for. For special occasions, we have the private Wine Room with your name on it.

From the moment the buffet opened, we were greeted by sir Deo. The attention to our needs were met - food, our comfort, our request of sitting comfortably as we were celebrating 2 ocassions. Thanks as well to Mimi & Anne for checking on us from time to time. The food was great, the drinks overflowing. We enjoyed!

Love this restaurant! Food selection is well curated. Everything we had was great. The staff is very helpful and accommodating. We were assisted by a lot of them but mostly by Philip and Jay. They made our dining experience delightful. Will definitely dine here again.

Our family had an incredible dining experience at Cafe 1228, and I want to give a big shoutout to the fantastic team - Kier, Bobby, Ivan, and Kristin! The service was top-notch, and the food was absolutely delicious. The rib-eye steak was cooked to perfection, the Japanese selection was a delightful surprise, and the desserts were a sweet ending to a fantastic meal. Chef's kiss to the entire experience! I'll definitely be back for more. 5 stars all the way! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

My mom's birthday lunch went smoothly, thanks to the staff of Cafe 1228. The delicious food options were not overwhelming, but they were more than enough to satisfy our cravings. Everyone got to enjoy what they wanted to eat. Since we were with seniors, the wait staff assisted them with their needs. Jane and the wait staff were very helpful, polite and attentive. After the meal, they gave out membership cards for huge discounts at the buffet. The only thing is that the restaurant was a little too warm for our comfort.

Had buffet lunch with my sister earlier. Our favorite was the salmon sashimi, the fish fillet, beef dishes, grilled seafood and the dessert spread. Didn't get the chance to try the veggie dishes, dimsum, hot noodle soup. The best part of our dining experience was the friendly but attentive service of the staff. I loved the service with a smile. Special mention to Tin/Kristin who was in charge of getting the grilled items to the tables of the guests. She readily asked me what I wanted and helped me in my confusion. I watched with admiration how patiently she asked guests were they are seated, so she can bring the grilled food to their tables. Our table was near the seafood grilling area and happened to ask her whom we can ask for a soda. She proceeded to get them for us, with a smile. She is a keeper. We truly appreciated the service with a smile. We will be back.

Deo and Philip were very helpful! Buffet spread did not have that many options but quality was good. Stand out menu items were the rib eye, mushroom soup and spicy tuna! Dessert choices can still be improved.

Ate at cafe 1228 to celebrate my son’s birthday. Food selection was good. Deo our server was really nice and went the extra mile to provide and serve my kids’ favorites to our table instead of getting from the buffet. It was a week night so there wasn’t much people despite resto promo. Ambiance was nice and chill. Would definitely recommend.
