“Go For It Before It Closes!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Had lunch here last Sunday with family. As others have written, it is a great sampling of Filipino,Japanese, Chinese, and American food.
The quality of the food is superb as always (we've had the buffet here several times over the years). Highlights for me are: the Japanese sushi/maki and tempura; the seafood bar (fresh oysters, prawns); the steak carving station is also great; and you can make your own halu-halo at the dessert bar. It may not be a huge place but the selection is well-picked.
Service is also good, although the place was full so the staff was quite busy.
It pays to reserve a table in advance and come in early. Tables away from the buffet bars are quieter and make you enjoy your meal with more privacy.
The Manadarin Oriental will close sometime this year and a new one will be built. This restaurant will be missed by many who have had family meals and celebrations here. Go experience it again before it is gone for good.

“A great place to sample diverse cuisines...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2014

During my most recent stay at the Mandarin Oriental I enjoyed dinner on two nights at Paseo Uno. It's a chic and attractive space organized around four different cooking stations offering a range of cusines, including Filipino, Japanese, Chinese, and western offerings. One can order from a menu as well, but why not taste the range of flavors on offer? Service (drinks and the like) is prompt and unfailingly friendly. It's the sort of place where you could have a small snack or a multi-course blowout; prices make the latter surprisingly affordable.

If reports of the hotel's relocation are true, I hope they'll keep the Paseo Uno general concept going -- it's a great way to enjoy the region's tastes and traditions.

“Food here is worth it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

Try dining at Paseo Uno before Mandarin Oriental closes this year! The buffet here is good with a variety of choices (Filipino, American, French, Japanse, Chinese). Eating breakfast won't be a bore. I particularly loved their fruit maki! Would really love to go back there for it!

“Mandarin Delights”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Paseo Uno is the place to eat at the Mandarin Manila if your looking for a 1st class hotel buffet which will remain as one of your top places for breakfast or lunch in Makati City. But you had better hurry 'cuz the Mandarin Hotel will close its doors soon as the building will be demolished to make way for the Ayala Land Corp.'s Roxas II luxury condominium. The Mandarin Manila will be re-built on another location.
