After all what happened during the previous storm and despite being the most expensive buffet in Manila, Spiral Buffet at Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila remains the best and the most sought after hotel buffet in the Philippines. Well, I don’t see any reason why not… It offers luxury in every level. The Food is still exceptionally amazing, top notch service and hospitality, ultra modern equipment, and a truly exquisite dining experience.
After more than a year of renovation, the New Spiral Manila emerges stronger than ever and immediately took the crown of being the best, most luxurious and the biggest buffet in the Philippines and probably in Asia. Let me list down some of the major improvements and changes that the New Spiral offers.
- An 11-Million Dollar Upgrade! All Modern Interiors and Facilities.
- A world class wine cellar
- Twenty-one (21) dining ateliers
- An Impressive Cheese Room
- A dedicated Chocolate Room
- 6 Private Function Rooms for your meetings and celebrations
- Total of 452 seating capacity
- An authentic tandoori oven for a better Indian Cuisine
- A Bonnet French stove – a customized oven used by Michelin Star Chefs around the world and weighing one ton of steel.
The new design of Spiral was conceived by Spin Design Studio of Japan. The same team was also responsible for the original Spiral and other world-class projects such as the new restaurants of Ritz Carlton Hong Kong.
While most of us call it Food Stations… Spiral Calls it Dining Ateliers!
