Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu Shabu

We drove to Ayala Malls Manila Bay last week to try the souffle pancakes at am.pm. But before that, we had lunch at Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu Shabu. We wanted to eat somewhere we haven’t tried that is so far only available at Ayala Malls Manila Bay and Suki-Ya fit the bill. Well, it helped that they had posters all over the mall which said you can have unlimited hot pot for P300+.

Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu ShabuSo this is Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu Shabu. Despite the Japanese vibe, this establishment actually hails from Malaysia. The Sukiya I know in Japan is a gyudon restaurant chain that’s considered Yoshinoya’s rival.

Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu ShabuAnyway I liked the bright and neat interiors.

Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu ShabuWe got a table for 4. It’s equipped with an induction cooker in the middle for your sukiyaki / shabu shabu.

Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu ShabuThere’s a buffet area where you can get an assortment of balls, tofu, and veggies for your broth.

Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu ShabuYou don’t get meat from the buffet. What you do is order the meat you want and then they bring it to your table.

Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu ShabuYou can make your own dipping sauce or ask the staff to make for you.

Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu ShabuThe buffet also has several kinds of sushi, steamed rice, and noodles.

Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu ShabuThere are assorted pastries too.

Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu ShabuThere’s also soft serve ice cream.

Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu ShabuThey have beer, bottled water, and a soda fountain but you have to pay additional for unlimited fountain drinks. Beer and bottled water are sold by the piece.

Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu ShabuYou can choose 2 kinds of broth. They have Shabu Shabu, Sukiyaki, Tonyu Miso, Kimuchi, and Butaniku. We opted for Tonyu Miso (left) and Sukiyaki (right). Tonyu Miso is described in the menu as a combination of miso and soy milk but it turned out very bland. It tasted more like water. The sukiyaki broth was normal, albeit a tad less flavorful than usual.

Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu ShabuThey have 4 kinds of meat — Pork, Chicken, Beef Flank (shown above), and Beef Short Plate.

Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu ShabuThis is their Pork (I think).

Suki-Ya Eat All You Can Sukiyaki and Shabu ShabuWe pretty much just dumped everything in the broth and then ate when the ingredients were cooked. The meat and veggies are pretty good in terms of quality. I just wasn’t very happy with their selection of balls. They weren’t very good. Plus those which were labelled as filled with cheese were not consistent. Some did not have any cheese at all.

Okay, so since it was a weekend, we actually were not qualified for the P388 weekday lunch rate. What happened was this: Weekend / Holiday Rate P468 + Beef Top Up P58 + Free Flow Soda P38 = P564. It’s the same formula if you avail of the P388 weekday lunch rate. You’d still have to top up for beef and bottomless fountain drinks… unless you’re okay with just chicken and pork.

We paid around P2,500 when all the taxes were added, so it came out to P600+ per person. Hubby even got 20% off for being born in the Year of the Rat but well, it still came out to P600+ per person. That said, it wasn’t very worth it considering if we added P100+ more we could already eat at Tong Yang Plus Ayala Malls Manila Bay where there’s hell of a lot more food choices. But if you’re okay with just chicken and pork plus no drinks, the P388 weekday rate could be worth considering.

    Hi the picture you have is of the chicken meat not the pork. My family and I ate there 2 days ago and overall i think it was not worth it. The beef was on the chewy/hard side but the pork and surprisingly the chicken was good.

      But we didn’t order chicken lol. We just ordered one plate of pork and then it was all beef the entire time. I agree it wasn’t worth the P600+ per heqs we ended up paying.

    Love the review very honest. But I was just confused po as you said you see the poster for 300 pesos only. haha or maybe it’s just a commercial poster kaya ganun pero yung weekday rate talaga is worth 388. So makoconfuse mga tao sa pricing nila. Over all love the honest blog
