Sinfully Circles Buffet | Makati Shangri-La

Finally, I was able to try the famous (and expensive) Circles Buffet at Makati Shangri-La. Been wanting to try this for a long time now but the rate is just really steep for me. Thanks to the Buy 1 Take 1 promo, my friends Rod, Penggay, my housemate Rem, and I got these vouchers for only half the price. Amazing deal!

With no more blah blahs, here's a food porn tour at Circles.

Food Porn | Circles at Makati Shangri-La

Since this is Makati Shangri-La, my expectation became a bit steep as well. As steep as their buffet rates!!

the buffet stations

live seafood station

iced tea and wine are not included in the buffet

I dont know if it's just me, but the ambiance of HEAT in EDSA Shangri-La feels more luxurious.
Anyway, let the gluttony begin. ^_^

sweet soba soup
i love this one, tastes like sukiyaki's broth

fresh veggie salad with smoked salmon

sushi and sashimi minus the tempura
they dont serve tempura on a Sunday night?! what the..

well done prime rib-eye steak with red wine sauce
im just delighted to have my steak

seafood penne carbonara with slow-cooked braised pork
my comfort food. the pasta is tasty as well as the meat.

another round of rib-eye steak, plus salmon and paella rice
that salmon dish is great. the paella is bland.

everything chinese.
uhm ordinary. and sadly they dont serve hakaw.

a little bit of Pinoy dishes

another round of Italian? not sure.

It's not that Im looking for more, but Im at least looking for excellent tasting dishes.
Moving on, I requested the chef to cook the curachas and shrimp - the Singaporean style. Achieve!

thank you mr. jolly chef

my Singaporean style Curachas and Shrimps
in case you dont know, you may choose to have your seafood cook the way you want it.

My friends are already eating their dessert when I finished eating my seafood plate. Oo, madamot ako. Di ako namigay. ^_^

healthy dessert plate - fruits and nuts

sinful dessert plate - cakes and pastries

As per my friends verdict, only some of the cakes are really good. Most of them tastes so-so. Thanks to the chefs for recommending the must-try ones.

Overall, Circles Buffet is good but not as we thought it would be. We expected it to be great. I can’t even recall an item which is really excellent. Good thing we availed this buffet rate on a promo. Im thinking of those regular paying customers who are dining as well. Parang di naman sulit ang P2,000 for this buffet. Im dissappointed that there are no Tempura, Hakaw, Pizza and Lobsters. 

Anyhow, from the ambiance, to the staff, to the buffet spread - I love EDSA Shangri-La's HEAT more! HEAT gets better everytime I dine there. yesss, madalas may nanlilibre dun! ^_^

So far, here's my top 5 best buffet in Manila.
1. Spiral at Sofitel
2. HEAT at Edsa Shang
3. Marriot Cafe at Marriot Hotel
4. Crossover Brunch at Dusit Thani
5. Cafe Ilang-Ilang at The Manila Hotel or Circles Buffet at Makati Shang

with Rod, Penggay, Remay at Circles, Makati Shangri-La
buti nalang buy 1 take 1 ito kaya sulit! ♥

Circles Buffet Rate
Monday - Saturday P1,670 | Sunday P2,026
Sunday - Thursday P2,007 | Friday - Saturday P2,271

I've been to Circles, but haven't tried their buffet yet. I was there for a tasting event lang kasi and only got to try their Persian offerings. Anyway, sayang naman walang tempura, hakaw, pizza or lobsters :( Siguro when I visit Circles and wala din yung mga yun, sa crabs and prawns ko nalang susulitin! haha :D

I absolutely want to try this but their tickets is just too expensive... The cuisine they serve looks encouragingly delicious, thanks to this blogs that I at least can savor my thirst on going to places of this kind just by reading. Epic shot w/ the chandelier by the way!
