So much food! This place really knows how to buffet. But I just have to point out some things: One of the servers assigned in the meats and breads area acts and sounds like he's not in the mood. I frequented that area during my visit and not once have I seen him smiling, even when I asked for something... More

Variety wise, this eat all you can buffet would not disappoint you. The taste of the food was just as expected. The place was clean and comfortable to dine in. Big parking space is a definite plus! Tip: Always check for promos for discounts and freebies.

We could not enjoy eating... More

The best part of the buffet for me is the very fresh shrimps... They still swim and cooked just right and oh so fresh. I love the... More

Visited the place with the birthday boy in the family. Amazing offer for the birthday celebrant. Expensive in a way in terms of prizing but the overall dining experience is really great. It's a real value for money. Wide array of food and drinks choices.

Buffet 101 is everything that Viking in SM Mall isn't. Its a nice place, lots of room, with spacious feel. Good value, much better than Viking, and the prices are also much better. Coupled with these things, the food selection is also much better. Service at 101 is good, prompt efficient and courteous, again something lacking at Viking. We have... More

Tried this buffet restaurant to celebrate the birthday of my mom. The experience was really unforgetable. I got to experience eat all you can Japanese cuisine, Chinese, Western foods, delicious desserts and the staff were very accommodating. I recommend this for those who like to experience Western food and Asian Food Eat all you can.
