Circles in Makati Shangri-La is best known for pioneering the Interactive Theatre Kitchen, where the chefs get to interact with the people and accommodate customized food requests with a smile. You can request for any dish that you want at any time of day as long as it is not impossible to get the ingredients.

The best time to eat at Circles is during its special themed buffets. You can choose from Filipino Fiesta Wednesday Dinner Buffet (P1,640 net), Seafood Friday Dinner Buffet (P1,904 net), Barbecue Saturday Dinner Buffet (P1,904 net) or Sunday International Brunch with Iced Tea Buffet (P1,904 net). The International Buffets include Japanese and Seafood Appetizers, a Healthy Salad section, a Continental, Indian and Chinese Main Dishes section, Pizza and Pasta, and an extensive dessert spread, including Halo-Halo.



Here are the top strategies to enjoy the Circles Buffet:


1. Prioritize High-Priced Items. This strategy aims to get your money’s worth by going after the Prime Rib, Lamb, Steaks, Salmon and other seafood first. Have fun specifying how you want it cooked and experimenting with different food pairings or condiments. On Filipino Fiesta Wednesday, start with the Lechon before all the best parts disappear.

2. Avoid Carbs and other fillers for starters. Initially, forego bread, sushi, anything with rice, pasta and small food items. They act as fillers and are just there to give an extensive assortment to the buffet.

3. Eat the best dishes and have dessert in the middle. Go after the food that you crave for first, then eat dessert in the middle to clean the palate. Circles is best known for its flourless chocolate cakes, homemade ice cream, and bibingka with kaldereta during Filipino Fiesta Wednesdays. After dessert, go for a second round of dishes you might want to try or opt for the carbs if you are still not full yet.
