Birthday Celebration at Four Seasons Buffet and Hotpot by Vikings

For the past few months, we’ve been planning to have a get-together but for some reason, hindi kami matuloy-tuloy so I suggested magbreakfast meal na lang kami and dun na kami magplan ng alis. So last month, we went to our friend’s house for our breakfast meeting.

It is not easy to schedule a trip since we have to consider the schedule of our husbands and kids. In addition, hindi rin pare-pareho ng school ang kids namin so different dismissal time. Of course, we need to be home before our kids' school services arrive. 

I can’t remember yung last na alis namin but I know that it’s been a long time since we had our “Mom’s Day Out”. We all tried Yakimix and Vikings so I suggested Four Seasons Buffet and Hotpot in Southmall for a change. My friend called to reserve a table.  

We arrived in SM Southmall, a few minutes before the opening. We immediately went to Four Seasons Restaurant so we can confirm our reservation and the staff gave us a number. 11AM is the opening time so nag-ikot-ikot muna kami, looking for SALE. 

Then we went back to the restaurant, the staff ushered us to a round table good for 5 persons. But there is only one cooking stove so I requested if they can transfer us to a bigger table and I’m glad they granted my request. 

We mentioned that it was our friend’s birthday that day so we can avail of the birthday promo. One of my friends told the staff na meron pa isa birthday celebrant so the staff asked for my ID. I told him, na kulang kami para sa isa pa promo but the staff told me that they will give me a complimentary cake.  On the Day Birthday promo 1 + 1 FREE and Birthday Month promo 3 + 1 FREE.

I was surprised because two years ago, I celebrated my birthday in Four Seasons Buffet and Hotpot City MOA but I did not receive any complimentary cake. In the same year, we went to Vikings SM BF, they were aware that there are two celebrants but they only gave one cake. But this time, they really gave me a complimentary birthday cake. So kahit malayo pa birthday ko, nakapagblow ako ng candle. Kudos to the staff or Southmall branch. The birthday greeting is the same with Vikings, isahan na lang, and picture per table. 

Anyway, before checking the buffet spread we ordered our soup and we all chose Sate for our broth. If you still remember, my family just ate here last March so you can read my review here. The only thing that I noticed is, there are more meat selections during weekends and mas konti na yung sliced meat servings nila, as in 4 slices na lang per tray. Hehehe! Five months ago, mas ok yung serving nila.

The service is good, the staff even advised us that we can order Green Mango Shake and it is included in the fee. Yey! Forgive me for the limited photos because we were busy eating and talking. Thanks to my friend’s treat. Next time, ibang buffet restaurant naman ang i-try namin. I hope there will be more buffet restaurants for South peeps. The rate is still the same, check below.

  1. It's my brother's birthday on Sunday and you just gave me an idea on where we could celebrate it. I've been eyeing Four Seasons at SM Southmall ever since it opened. Minsan kasi nasa Las Pinas kami with my parents and pag pumupunta kami sa Southmall, amazed ako on how much it changed na especially the Food Street. Dati kasi Storyland yan eh diba. :D Anyway, happy birthday to you sis! God bless you and your family. :)

    1. Thanks! Yes, ang ganda nung improvement ng Southmall at okay din sa akin ang Food Street nila.

  2. SM Southmall! We're moving back to the South soon so we'll get to try Four Seasons there then. Happy Birthday Michi!

  3. Happy birthday momshie. The last time I had a buffet was 3 years ago, although I haven't tried eating in Four Seasons, puro Yakimix, Vikings and Dads lang. Might include this on the list, magbabalik loob na ulit sa buffet. hehe!

    1. Thanks! Natawa ko sa pagbabalik loob mo sa buffet. hehehe!

  4. Oh gosh, green mango shake sounds yummy! I haven't been to Four Seasons yet as we only have the basic Vikings here in Davao, but I like what you said about them valuing their customers. Happy birthday!

    1. Yes, their green mango shake is good. Thanks!

  5. Looks amazing! Sobrang dami na ng buffet options sa atin. :)

    1. True, hindi ko pa nga natry din lahat ng buffet. hehehe!

  6. Sometimes, customer service really makes you want to go back to a place again and again. Plus, of course, the food. Belated happy birthday to you, Michi.

    1. Thanks! Yes, customer service is one reason why clients go back.
