We came here for a big lunch. Thanks cause it's satisfied our cravings for Crab... They don't really have a lot of choices but the lechon & crabs is worth it. It is an affordable resto for a buffet meal. Burp!

The food was a bit "from yesterday". Seafood aren't fresh. The grilled pork was all fat, no pork meat at all. I was with my pregnant wife and we don't have any reservation yet we asked for a table inside cause it was raining but they didn't gave us any consideration knowing that I have a pregnant woman with me....

My Family went to Park Mall for the supermarket and at this mall was this Filipino Joven;s grill and seafood. Cheap, clean, good buffet and all the fresh cooked crab you can eat. Peso 350 $7, Good value.

This eat-all-you-can restaurant has been in the business for several years now and has constantly coped up with the influx of newer restaurants. It offers a decent number of dishes, although some are just so-so, but you get your money's worth. Before, a glass of iced tea or soda is already included in your fee, but now you pay a... More

We enjoy our buffet lunch at this branch in IT Park. Lunch buffet cost only 300 pesos. Fortunately, we are able to availed of buy 1 take 1 promo for the first 14 reservation. Promo is not available for dinner. For the amount you pay, there are lots of food choices and dessert - it worth it.

I could have forgiven them for the dry dumplings, "gummy-like" lechon kawali and a couple of dishes that seem like leftovers because there are a couple of good food too, but the service was really bad. I think the management should really train its people for it's the service that holds a bigger weight as to if the customers are... More

If you care about looks, then this restaurant would not rate well. My visitor even asked me if the place was that old already. They have several food stations and the food has good value for a cheap buffet lunch. I liked the Lechon Kawali, the Chorizo, and the fried Camote.

Worst service I ever received from a restaurant. We booked an early reservation to celebrate a birthday dinner of a family member. We are a group of 20 pax. We were told to arrive early as guests who arrive beyond 5:30pm will be off the reservation list. We arrived at 4-4:30pm, with tables still drenched from the downpour (it was... More
