We've eaten here several times and have had exceptionally good meals each time. It is cozy and is reasonably spacious considering the number of guests accommodated at the same time. The menu is standard, especially for breakfast but they will accommodate special requests.

I was really impressed by cafw ilang ilangs buffet selection. There is filipino, chinese, fruits, cheeses, indian, and japanese.it also comes with a wide array of drink delections and a carving station. While it gets busy, its worth it.

I think you still can. Better call them asap for reservation. It would also depend on on their schedule during the said date because it's Christmas Eve.🙂
