Lunch and Dinner Buffet Prices, Makati 2011

Having recently received a communication from the Dusit Thani titled " Setting Trends at Basix" (translates to "We are increasing the Prices"), I thought it might be a good idea to get some updated prices from other 4 or 5 Star Hotels.

Prices at Basix at the Dusit from 1 Sept are :-

Lunch 1600nett (2100 with "free flowing drinks")

Dinner 1800/2300nett

As I recall, this represents around a 22% increase over the previous rates.

Any recent comparisons?

Good info indeed!

I DO enjoy a glass (or two) of wine with my Lunch or Dinner - do those prices include?

@Veuts...only the Sunday Brunch at Manila Pen includes Champagne with the price. The others only have fruit juices, iced tea and soda included for beverages. The daily lunch at Sofitel Hotel Manila includes free flow red & white wine. Last I ate there, I think it cost me around P 2,700 per person.

In case you're interested, the Shang Makati has a daily wine buffet at the Lobby Lounge from 6pm to midnight for P 976 net. It includes a decent selection of red and white wines. Last I had that, I wondered how I managed to drive myself home ;-P

The quite 'new' Midas Hotel Manila (along Roxas Boulvard, close to Heritage Hotel) has an evening buffet at about P1342 if I recall. I did not try it but have stayed there within the past month. The dining area is pleasantly furnished: if the morning buffet breakfast is typical, then lunch and dinner will be good - perhaps a bit below say Circles Evenet Cafe at Makati Shangri-La though.

Quite some years ago, Midas was the Hyatt Regency Manila but the building has now been extensively renovated.

Really informative replies - now to work out the "testing/tasting" programme!!

It does show, I think, that Basix at the Dusit, was just catching up with the prices charged by the opposition. We've had a number of Lunch and Dinner Buffets there (plus the Breakfast), and always found it to be excellent and very "free flowing" with the wine.
