Breakfast was amazing. Huge selection from Filipino to international selections. They have taho (tofu), arroz caldo, and the typical fried rice, daing, longganisa to name a few for the Filipino selection. They also have Korean, Japanese, Indian, and continental selections too. Service was great. Staff always welcoming and accomodating.

When being in Ilang-Ilang i feel like i'm in heaven :) Such an enormous buffet, a small corner from every country. There's so much to choose from! Very good service too. It's a great culinary experience every time visiting Ilang-Ilang. One thing they could improve are the cocktails.

Had breakfast here while staying at Manila Hotel. The number of dishes is very impressive, and the quality is also one of the best buffet breakfasts I have had.

There is a variety of choices - from Asian food to Western and European dishes. You have to check out all the food sections first so you can decide on what to eat. Take your time, the laidback ambience in the restaurant makes you enjoy your meal better while having the time to chat with your companions.

To our dismay the european spread was only one table section with cheese spread that was philippine inspired meaning only goat cheese and very limited selection.the other choices was too limited and nothing impressive. Hope they can... More

Cafe Ilang-Ilang serves fresh prawns, oysters, crabs, etc, which you can request the staff to serve grilled or cooked in butter garlic. They have very delicious Japanese offerings, with good selection of sushi. Their Chinese and Filipino food offering selections are delicious. Their prime rib station failed to impress me though as the beef is so dry and the cut... More

The selections were pretty decent but you have to walk around the entire restaurant first to make sure you don't miss a food section. They are scattered around the Cafe. Filipino and cheese pizza were good. And the mutton dish. The rest were so-so. I don't think this is worth the P2k+ price tag. Best to buy when they offer... More
