My Birthday Celebration at Four Seasons Hotpot City

After so much contemplating on where to celebrate my birthday, I finally decided to have a simple celebration. No staycation this time because I’m still undergoing phototherapy and I know that I will not really enjoy my staycation if I’m in pain after my therapy. 

I’ve just recently tried Vikings so I decided to try the new hotpot restaurant in the metro which is Four Seasons Hotpot City in SM Mall of Asia. I asked my hubby to make a reservation last Friday but unfortunately, the reservation was full, and was advised to make a reservation on that day. Walk-in reservation starts at 9AM

So last Sunday, we went early to SM MOA just to make reservations, we were there as early as 9:15AM and 11AM is the start of the lunch buffet. The first time that I tried shabu shabu was four years ago, it was also my birthday celebration at King One Rotary Hotpot. 

It’s been years already so I was really excited about my farm-to-table experience and simmer different meat and veggies in my hot pot which is perfect for rainy weather.

Upon seated, I immediately checked the 7 stations such as Meat, Seafood, Vegetable, Appetizers, Desserts, Japanese and Bar

There are ready-to-eat meals too, of course, I got ebi tempura, our favorite in any buffet restaurant. 

When I went back to our table, the staff already poured the broth into our hot pot. My husband chose chicken soup and pork soup + sate mix. Other options for soup are fish, vegetables and sinigang. Other choices for the mix are tomato paste, Chinese herb, and Szechuan mala.

This is it! Time to go to the market and get our ingredients. My husband ordered sliced meat and it was delivered to our table. 

There is Premium Station where you can order sliced meat too but there is an additional fee. 


1. The place is clean and very spacious so you have enough space to move around the restaurant. I like the interiors too.

2. You can make reservations online, by phone or email. 
3. The buffet rate includes unlimited drinks. 
4. They have a birthday promo so I have a free lunch buffet at that time. 


1. I made research prior to going to Four Seasons Hotpot City and I’ve read that birthday celebrants receive complimentary cake but I did not receive anything on my birthday. They just gave me the birthday promo but no complimentary cake. #disappointed. 

2. My husband went to the meat section to place an order again but the meat was not delivered to our table. We did not make any follow-up anymore and we just went to dessert stations to cap off our lunch buffet.

  1. Nice! I was always curious about this restaurant. I'd love to bring the family here.

  2. Great place. Love to try this one out with the whole family.

  3. OMG, my mouth is literally watering right now! Yummy!

  4. This looks interesting. I miss hot enjoyed on a rainy day.

  5. I do love hot pot, too. Sadly, there's only few options for this in our place. But in a way, that's also an advantage since hot pot price is not really cheap, huh. Lol

  6. The place is classy. :)
    You have great places in Manila. :( Wish we had some in Cebu.

    Yung birthday promo mo sis is sa Vikings pa. hehe

    1. Ay thanks! I'll edit. Same promo kasi sila since same owner. hehehe!

  7. The place looks great- I think that they should accommodate your meat order though, its kinda disappointing when you can't get what you want and seems like they don't care. I'm also dissappointed sa birthday promo Sis. Hope you'll get it.

  8. Where in MOA is this located? What restaurants are present nearby? :) I plan to eat here soon!
