It really took a while before I decided to post my latest experience with Yakimix. I know a lot of people love Yakimix that most probably they have gone to this buffet resto more than I do. I have first visited Yakimix two years ago with my college friends, who I share the same fondness for buffets. I gave this place a second visit a few months ago with the same people.
My friends arrived late so we had to wait outside since the place's already full, which we didn't mind. What was unusual was the way they called my name when we were about to be sitted. The manager told me that we'll be sat with another group. I didn't bother reacting, I'm too hungry I might bite his arms off.

Yakimix has now included unlimited drinks in their rates. Their drink selections include sodas, iced tea, and fruit juices.
Some of the staff are kinda stiff, like the guy who served our drinks and cleared our table. I appreciate the friendly guys at the buffet area. Thumps up for this guy who personally approached me as soon as the tempura was refilled.
I'm not sure if anyone notices, but some of the staff don't wear their Japanese robes as neatly as resto staff should. I prefer that they wear shirts instead, like the Yabu staff.
Aside from the Japanese and Korean selections, they now have some Chinese dim sum.
For desserts, I helped myself with scoops of ice cream, buchi, mini cheesecakes, leche flan, and other pastries. I'm okay with dessert as long as I have ice cream, but I'll happily skip the pastries the next time.
Yakimix is perfect for people with huge appetites (like me). However, I wasn't just paying for food, but for the whole experience. The buffet price isn't cheap so I was expecting service as grand as their chandeliers. Apparently, I didn't get that. I do hope that this is an isolated case. It would be sad if this resto isn't taking customer service very seriously, considering that they have lots of branches at prime locations.
Would I give Yakimix another try? Maybe next year. But it would take a lot of convincing.
