There were a lot of factors in rating this restaurant. Price wise, it is not bad for Php 289.00. They must try to improve on some of their dishes and desserts. Some are quite redundant.

Overall, I would give our lunch buffet experience a 7.30 out of 10 rating. The service crew is quite friendly and even gave a survey form after we finished eating. The survey form that we filled-up hopefully would be use by the management to improve their dishes and even service.
