Saw the advertisment at the Marco Polo (Davao) lobby inviting guests to try their Sunday dimsum buffet. Seeing that we did not have anything special planned, we reserved a table and prepared ourselves for an endless sampling of bite-sized savory and sweet treats. To qualify (and impressively so), it wasn't all dimsum.There was a selection of soups (the chicken and... More

Terrible food and terrible service. Came here for Chinese New Year buffet but very disappointed. Expected a four star hotel to be some standard. We are given wooden chopsticks instead of proper ones. Jellyfish dish is not fresh at all. Selection of food is extremely terrible. Served lipton tea instead of Chinese tea. A big NO for a Chinese restaurant.... More

I ordered room service from the Lotus Court. The food was at acceptable quality standards and was reasonably priced. The standout item for me was the chocolate-filled sesame balls (butchi).

It's not surprising that one of the city's best Chinese restaurants is located in one of its premier hotels. Food is consistently excellent and the variety is satisfying as Lotus Court serves authentic Chinese cuisines from various regions of China. The staff are also very friendly and helpful with our orders.

First came here for dinner on a Sunday and surprisingly there were only a few of us and thought food wasn't great, but we later savored every dish we ordered and came back couple of times more. It's a typical Chinese resto but we rate highly their: - Yang Chow (flavorful but not oily) - Chopsuey was half-cooked just right... More

First of all...the restaurant is absolutely stunning and relaxing. It has an elegant Chinese atmosphere so I feel like I was eating and meditating at the same time. The staff are accommodating and helpful, they sometimes stand beside your table for a long time just in case you need anything. It is expected to be expensive since it sits at... More

The Marco Polo being a "high end" hotel is expected to have pricing commensurate. It does with an exception on Friday and Saturday nights with an excellent (pricey by Philippine standards), but a real bargain compared to ala carte. Food is excellent and varied. Way better than expected at a hotel restaurant. One of the items on the buffet was... More

First time to eat here, as I was a hotel guest. The lunch dimsum buffet looked attractive, and reception was great. While eating, I noticed we were only 6 people, and there were three waiters.The food selection was not bad, as they tasted authentic. I felt that the dimsum was not so hot as dimsum should be, steaming hot. They... More
