It's Vikings Time!

One of the things listed down in my bucket list is to eat at Vikings and I was able to accomplish that on this glorious day.  I can't believe the amount of people who are willing to wait just to get in the restaurant.  When we came, we were given a number of 45 and the last person who was called had a number of 17 which means we were in for a long night.  We ended up waiting for an hour and a half before we got our table.  While we were waiting, I asked if I can take a look at the food choices at the buffet table and they allowed me to.  When they allowed that to happen, I decided to take pictures of the food so when we would eat right away when we finally had a table.  


When we were finally let in, a lot of people celebrated their birthday at Vikings because of the special discount given to them which I believe was 5%.  When we finished a plate, it took the crew a very long time before they would take it.  I was very disappointed with the service of the restaurant even if they had a lot of customers.  That should not be an excuse because there were a lot of waiters who were supposed to do their job.  













I actually missed out on some of the food items that I took a picture of including the steamed chicken with oyster sauce and meatballs.  Since lengua and beef stew are my favorites, I quickly went after those things when were finally given a table.  I decided to try their create a pizza and create a pasta but I was not able to finish the pizza.  I decided to pull a Mr. Bean and hid the parts so they would not charge me for the leftovers.  

I loved the Australian steak and Tenderloin.  There were some food choices that disappointed us like the chicken feet and the fruit shakes while some were good like the siomai and paella.  The choices are so many that it is impossible to be able to try all of them.  It would take a lot of visits before you can taste all of their food choices.  

I will certainly come back to try out the dishes I missed.  I loved the desert because it included taho, create your own bibingka and create your own crepe.  There were only two choices for the fruit shakes but they could have been more creative and turned the ice cream they had into milkshakes as well.

I have to say the only disappointment for this place was the service.  There was even one time when I called the attention of the server and he did not acknowledge me even though I am very sure he saw me call him.

i wonder what is the house specialty? ... seems good enough if people are really willing to wait just to have a table for their dinner ...is it affordable to eat there for a mediocre earning citizen like me ? hehehe

They're really this full and dining must be good in this place for you to wait more than 1 hour. I will try this place to when I get back to Manila =)

The Vikings really a place of good food. That is why we have to wait longer because they have to see to it that foods that being serve are great! IMO

Slow service is one of the obvious disadvantages of entering a full-packed restaurant but I like your objectivity when it comes to the food since you are still willing to come back even after a bad experience.

Some of the food appears to be more Asian than Scandinavian (Viking) but I guess the name is not really related to the food being served. As the blog says, Anything goes in the stomach. :-D

I've eaten there more than 5x. I consider it as one of the good buffets.

We really had a great dining experience at Vikings, I'd say their buffet spread is comparable to most hotel buffets. Got to enjoy some really good stuff there.
