UPDATE: SPIRAL BUFFET: Our Top 10 Favorites in SPIRAL Sunday Brunch, BEST Buffet in Town!

[11/2012 UPDATE] Check out the new relaunch of Spiral!
SPIRAL: Asia’s Most Dynamic Interactive Dining Experience @ Sofitel Manila! (2012 Guide) 


Spiral is a multi-cuisine restaurant with the biggest buffet in town. It has several live cooking stations and boasts the widest array of dishes. At the center of the restaurant is the spiral staircase connected to the main lobby, accented by the spiral art centerpiece.

 

 

Most people rave about the Chinese Buffet Station,

 

 

 

which offers fresh dimsum,

 


and different kinds of Chinese noodle soups

Peking Duck.

 

 

 

 

 

Also known for taking center stage on people’s plates are the Prime Ribs.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But you can start with the Mediterranean do-it-your-own salads and


have fun with the numerous varieties of cheese (preferably paired with wine).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can also choose to eat different Indian dishesJapanese sushi/sashimi or

 

Italian pizza and pasta.

 

Spiral takes pride in providing more ingredients and different variations than other hotel buffets in town. It is setting the trend for offering healthy dishes and light versions of buffet desserts with its Cuisine Vitale campaign.

 


For dessert, don’t miss the freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, which are just a little bigger than a ten-peso coin. Pair them with Spiral’s chocolate ice cream or do-it-yourself Halo-Halo.

 

To end the night, buy truffles in the Galette store in Sofitel’s main lobby for some take-home indulgence.

 

You can buy truffles per piece

Make sure to eat only until you are 80% full to leave enough space for your dessert or last-minute cravings. You won’t be able to taste all of the food, so choose wisely. Base your picks on the most loved dishes, your favorites or the high-priced items. Have a chat with the chefs and staff. Ask them about the special dishes in the buffet and their personal favorites.

  1. sure shaunshine… anyone who loves to eat and relax should have one… =) just drop me a mail with some contact details for him to call you =)

  2. Thanks for the review! I recently had the chance to experience this, thanks to my mom’s friends. I’d love to bring her and my whole family back for this one of these days. Nabitin ako sa pag kain ko! Hehe.

  3. My apologies, Sofitel from a French group of companies, Accor. The one who runs the hotel is a German, as well as his executive chef.

  4. We recently celebrated our anniversary at spiral and we were not satisfied. The food was bland and the seafood was not fresh. The salmon tasted like it was soaked in water. And it took forever just to get our bill. =(

  5. Hi Anton,
    My family went to Spiral for lunch last January, and the price was sky-high at around 3500 pesos per person-do they have higher prices around the holiday season? I believe we went on the 31st…Anyways thumbs up to the food, andami talaga, sulit naman ang bayad. We’d definitely come back, lalo na kapag mas mababa ang presyo:)

  6. tHE CARD IS P7500 WITH A FREE ROOM.Subject upon room availabitity. Definitely the BEST buffet in the Phil. For me the breakfast buffet is better. They make the best omelett and their beef tapa is to die for. Years ago I use to ask the waiters to crisp up my bacon(a plateful of them hahaha}Then I’ll pair it up with their freshly made waffles, fresh cream and blueberry fruit compote. Another fave is the granola full of fruits and nuts. They dont have alot of desserts during breakfast but if you want something sweet theres a tablefull of baked goods like danish pastries,ensaimada, donuts and they make the best pudding w vanilla sauce{its near the egg station} About the card 50percent discount is deducted for a party of two. Then 30 for three and so on.Great saving yung card, parang you eat with fifty percent discount. We have two cards so the waiter devide the bill para mas malaki savings.For ex if 4 of us eat.Two bill yun para tig 50 percent bawas, Mas okay than a 30percent for 4buffets ng one billing. Be generous lang in tipping your waiter.

  7. I forgot to mention .Theres a better deal.With a room,2 can eat breakfast buffet for free. Check nyo rin sa front desk. Get a bfast stub if possible, yung iba kseng hindi alam one lang binibigay nla. Dont ask the waiters kung ilan, insist na dalawa. Im positve dalawa tlaga yun. Per0 yung free room that comes with the purchase of the card walang free buffet.

  8. My vote goes to quality vs quantity. What good is a 10 station spread if I dont eat half of them? I was asked by the Membership Club of Sofitel to become a member which I turned down because frankly, am not impressed by the Spirals’ Vegas style buffet. Am still a fan of Mandarin’s Paseo Uno where service and food quality = excellent.

  9. let me get this straight. if you buy a card which is worth 7500, you get a free room and 50% off at spiral. am i right? or do you have to earn points before you can avail of such?

  10. Dinner has the most dishes, lunch a bit less and breakfast is almost the same as lunch with more breakfast stuff.
    Lots of special dishes come out on special occasions and holidays also. If you eat here every day though your bound to eat the same thing but there is so much to choose from.

  11. super accommodating staff. i would like to recommend loui lorenz torrecampo account consultant sa accor if u want to have a card. he will assist u in everything, he’s a wonderful person. u can reach him with his cp 09179940117.

  12. I TRIED IT ONCE BUT WITH THE SO MANY FOOD ON DISPLAY ITS HARD TO
    CHOOSE…ITS FUN GOING AROUND THE BUFFET BUT ALSO TIRING SEATING
    DOWN,GETTING UP AND GOING AROUND THINKING WHAT TO GET NEXT……
    I THINK ILL JUST GO AND EAT SOMEWHERE ELSE NEXT TIME – MAYBE
    JUST AN ORDER OF SIOMAI AND COLD GULAMAN AT A SIOMAI HOUSE COUNTER,
    OR 2 SLICES OF PIZZA AT A PIZZA HUT COUNTER OR A CLASSIC BURGER
    AT TROPICAL HUT………

  13. I recently ate at Spiral with my boyfriend. We really enjoyed the food. =) We want to go back there but a certain site said that the buffet is 3,000+ per head. That’s actually how I stumbled onto your entry. I was looking for the actual rate. Hehe. Do you think the rates you posted here are still applicable?

  14. there’s a recent deal in cash cash pinoy at Spiral for only P999 each! although it’s already sold out πŸ™ please contact me if you’re selling your vouchers. 0932-4160928
