We love to eat! We haven’t got the money to eat out all the time but we try out affordable restaurants and especially all you can eat restaurants. I consider buffets under Php1,000 to be affordable. There are very expensive buffets usually at hotels that can go for as high as Php2,500 per person!

I’ve compiled a list of those we have tried and those we plan on trying and have gotten great reviews from friends and family.


Yakimix serves a variety of food from Korean to Chinese to Japanese dishes. Its special feature is the fact that you can grill your own food. They also serve cooked dishes.

  • Mon-Sat Lunch Php558
  • Mon-Fri (Public Holidays not included) Dinner Php658
  • Sat Dinner Php699
  • Sun & Holiday Lunch/Dinner Php699

I had a chance to eat at Dads/Kamayan/Saisaki EDSA during a baptismal reception. My husband was chosen to be a godfather for his friend’s daughter but he had to work and so my daughter, my youngest son and I attended for him. They also have a great selection here. We enjoyed the food, especially the desert.

I really enjoyed our time at Vikings MOA. The food selection was delicious, different varieties and yummy food aplenty. Sadly, because this was my pre-gallstones surgery days, I was only able to eat just a morsel of everything I could. Hence, the small servings you see below. I am hoping to go back soon and believe me it’ll be with a vengeance!  They offer birthday deals as some other buffets do. The prices are reasonable for the quality of the food.

So far, they have 4 branches, Mall of Asia, Marikina, SM North, and in Davao coming really soon.

Also, it’s better to call ahead at least 2 weeks and place a reservation rather than being a walk-in as you could end up waiting for some time.

Visit here for rates per location.


Somethin’ Fishy

If you’re looking for a really great deal on all you can eat buffets, Somethin’ Fishy would be at the top of the list. Their Midnight to Morning buffet is only Php199.00 from Mondays to Fridays and Php179 on weekends and holidays. Definitely a great price for an all you can eat fare of over 20 dishes.

The food quality is adequate. You probably won’t rate it as the best you’ve ever had but for these prices you’ll walk away full and satisfied.

Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures of food to share except for these. 🙂 You can see how our mood went from Ready to eat to burp!
