I went to spiral for several years but I must say that they really improved in terms of French food, chef julien improved the food a lot and it convinced me to organise a lot of Xmas parties for my company. Kudos also to Jezreel...and bon for an excellent service.More

Reservation - it was fast and efficient, when they can accommodate. However, I remember we've been trying to get hold of them via their phone number a couple of months back - but no one's answering. Overall Ambience - place was really nice and cozy,...given that it is a hotel buffet. It was a good idea to dress nicely to match how luxurious the place is. Service - staff were attentive generally, and the ones at the ateliers seem to know their stuff - especially the one at the cheese room. There was a point when it became super busy and there were delays in getting our bill settled, but that was understandable. Price - one of the more expensive hotel buffets in there, as it costs almost 4k. But we have Accor Plus membership so we got 50% discount since there were two of us who dined. Food - there's quite a wide variety, although I hope for it's price they have steak at least. I'm comparing it with Manila Hotel's Cafe Ilang Ilang dinner buffet which costs less but offers such option. As with some of the food I've tried... >> Pad thai: generous amount of toppings, noodles were well-cooked, and is savory. But not enough tamarind to my taste, not tangy and fruity enough >> Tom yum: soup had the right amount of sourness, very savory. Right amount of spiciness as well. Enjoyed this one. >> Bacon and pork rind chicharon: the bacon one was sooooo good! Extra crispy and not too salty. As with the latter, same quality of taste with the bacon, although there were some really hard parts on it - doesn't seem that they popped so well? >> Shrimp hakaw: quite a standard one, nothing too special. But I like that the shrimps were fresh and juicy, and the wrapper was not soggy. >> Sashimi: my partner had this since I don't eat raw fish. But by the looks of it, it seems fresh and nicely cut. >> Deli & cheese platter: really enjoyed this one as well. Truffle honey pairs well with the deli because of its sweet and earthy taste, which complements the saltiness of the meat.. It was my first time as well to try cheese drizzled with honey, which I liked too. I like the sweet-salty combo. >> Pork ribs sinigang: I am quite particular with this dish because it's my comfort food. And so far, theirs did not disappoint. Meat was juicy and tender, veggies were fresh. And the soup had the right balance of being sour, fruity, and savory because of tamarind and tomato. >> Dinuguan: another comfort food of mine. Meat was very tender, and sauce was savory. Not enough tanginess though - same comment I had with their Pad Thai >> Roast beef: okaaaaay. Now this one was the biggest disappointment for me. As mentioned, for their price point I was looking forward for them to at least have a steak. But settled for this instead. Anyway, meat was tough, dry, and bland. I know it's bad to waste food, but I just can't bear to eat it. >> Cakes and tarts selection: blueberry cheesecake was pretty standard. Right amount of tang from the cream cheese and has smooth mouthfeel. The pistachio one was good too - light and airy, not too sweet. Same goes with the chocolate cake - I got the dark one. But my most favourite of all was the strawberry cream tart. The cream base really paired well with the freshness of strawberries! Will I go back? Maybe. I think mostly for the ambience of the place (there was live music). But comparing the food selection vs. price point, I think there are other hotel buffets that have more value for money.More

Had the best time at Spiral Manila. We recommend that you try their Laksa and lamb curry. They also serve cheese platters, which was really elegant. The staff were also kind and helpful, especially Ms. Tin. Will definitely return here with more loved ones.
