Review: Tong Yang Hotpot


Hi everyone!

This is actually my first time to visit Tong Yang Hotpot in Makati.

My officemates and I went there last Sunday for dinner. Since we came in a group of ten people, they offered their private room for us. It was nice although we felt a bit secluded but it is also good since we felt that our things are more secured.

There are not much food choices compared to other buffets I have been to. Although I did not expect much since it is also cheap. I think 500+ php if hotpot only and 600+ if grill + hotpot. 

Everything is pretty much self service here. You will be the one who will scoop for your icecream and other desserts. 

They have several choices for drinks though but you got to check their glasses as they are not clean. Well, most of them! I had a hard time finding a decent one. Their ice was placed in a jug type the one you will use for family outing! I was really shocked but just made fun of it. 

I also noticed that there were not much available staff to accommodate us. Food has not been replenished right away and we needed to get their attention for them to refill.

They also have few spaces and tables for diners and parking spaces are limited as well. It was really crowded when we visited. Which is not convenient if you are sitting together with other customers.

Overall it was fun, although I would rather spend more money to have a quality buffet. Their place is pretty outdated and not that appealing. 

With what I experienced, I might not go back. 

I do not have photos of their food but I got some from our private room.
