I have been eating at Cafe Ylang Ylang dinner buffet for many years now, and they always have good selections. They're pretty complete having an Italian, Japanese, Continental, Asian and Indian sections. They also have baked oysters and mussels available (unlike other hotel buffets such as New World Hotel Cafe 1228). I appreciate that their ribeye is particularly good in quality (Very tender). They also have a desserts section and a salad bar with cold cuts and various cheeses. I think they can, however, improve on their italian section. The chef there isnt very friendly and the selections are relatively few as compared to other sections. It is good that they cook the pastas fresh upon your order.

Always packed, crowded, busy place to dine at so make sure to come early so you get in the queue first. Selection of food is wide, however some dishes are not always replenished. I saw a cook preparing tuna and one of the guests said, "wala nang salmon?" (no more salmon?) The cook responded, "tuna na lang po eh, ubos na ang salmon" (we only have tuna, we ran out of salmon) It was still early then (about 7:30 or 8pm) and yet dishes were no longer replenished. Not fair for those who went there for the salmon (and not able to eat some) and paid for the same price.

The food stations are too far from one another and the dining area are too big it can get tiring to get every single time, so I suggest you get as much as you can (of course, not more than what you can consume) in every trip to the food stations so you can enjoy.

Price is already reasonable but still can go low - watch out for bank promotions (Got our 40% discount from BDO)
