Dinner at Yakimix

My mommy friend in school treated us last Saturday in Yakimix. Actually, we’re just teasing her last summer kung kelan ang victory party nila because her husband won last election. We’re not expecting na tototohanin naman niya so when she asked us if we are available for dinner in Yakimix, we immediately said yes.

She called Yakimix for reservation but no more reservation for the weekend so we went there as early as 5PM. Rain or shine we went to Yakimix – Alabang. I always hear and read mixed reviews about Yakimix so I never dare to try this restaurant. The branch in Alabang Town Center is not that big and I was not impressed with the food choices compared to other eat all you can restaurant. My son who only ate ice cream and ebi tempura were charged P380 already. #lugi

My plate, shared pa kami ng son ko sa tempura. Dessert: ice cream and leche flan lang.

1. Though the restaurant is small, it is clean and organized.
2. The food choices are quite limited compared to the other branch. My husband tried Yakimix - MOA.
3. The service is quite different, the wait staff is only there to refill the food and your drinks. I tried other buffet restaurants and the wait staff will tell us pa, “Ma’m if you need anything, just call me, I’m (insert name)”. Then pag-nauubusan ka ng ebi tempura or fresh shrimp, mag-offer pa sila, “Sorry Ma’m bilis maubos, dalhan ko na lang kayo sa table niyo”.

Good thing that I did not pay anything for this dinner because P660 (dinner) and P75 (drinks) are not cheap. I do hope they will improve their customer service.

  1. Ay.. Bakit ganun yung ATC branch >.< I've dined at Yakimix about 10 times already, and every experience was good naman. SM MOA, Trinoma and SM North's branches have almost equal lineup of dishes. But personally, Tomas Morato's had the best service for me although parang less ang items nila. Some of their servers were super courteous, as in sila na nagdadala ng tempura and beef-enoki sa table namin, at di lang once yun! Nagpabalik-balik pa sila, parang sila na nag-buffet XD

    Anyway, hope the ATC branch improves. Bad publicity yung ganyang medyo snobbish na service.

  2. Meron dito sa may sm masinag sa may rizal never kaming nagtry ni jikoy kasi mukang mahal ,,, mahal nga ! Buti nlng hahahah

  3. ako din. happy experience lagi sa yakimix tomas morato...

  4. Pag may kasamang kids, lugi talaga sa eat all you can restaurants.... kahit ako lugi, nasasawa ako sa food pag madami, pica-pica lang nakakain ko tuloy. Bawi na lang sa dessert lagi. :)

    1. Uy! You leave near SM masinag? Yan din mall namin pagnasa antipolo ako. Hehehe!

  5. Would love to try Yakimix. Sushi talaga all the way! =)

  6. Just went yesterday,unfortunately mouse jump on our table and our food ,its really not good feeling thinking rats on the table.This the 1st time I try Yakimix but i did not enjoy the food,next time i prefer to eat onther japanese resto.
    And when I go to CR leaking AC cause water on the floor that is risky to customers,I already inform the staff that in front of tha japanese maki bar it is sliuppery but still they did not dried it only they put warning sign.My wife ask the cashier how they will handle the presence of mouse on our table but they cannot answer proferly.
    I will not eat again in Yakimix if this kind of service....
