I had the chance to finally try NIU by Vikings with my fellow foodie Lovelee.
NIU is the upscale buffet concept of Vikings, the fast-rising buffet restaurant brand in Manila.
Upon entering the restaurant, it felt like we were transported to a posh hotel. The staff was very helpful in assisting us to our reserved table.
Vast seemed like understatement to describe NIU's buffet spread.
There's a lot of choices for freshly-baked bread, cold cuts, cheese, salad and other appetizers.
There's also a noodle station, sushi and sashimi station (my favorite), yakitori and teppanyaki station.
There's also a grilling station, where you can choose any fresh meat or seafood to be served to you.
Another favorite is the carving station. :)
I don't think I still need to explain why. :P
Western cuisine is also present. There's a pasta, pizza station and lovely choices for Spanish dishes.
In that area is where you can request for foie gras. Yes, foie gras is available during dinner service.
Since I loved the desserts on my visits to Vikings, I expected I would feel the same with NIU, and I wasn't disappointed. In fact, I was overwhelmed. :)
There's a pastry station, halo-halo station, Filipino desserts station,
There's a frozen yogurt and chocolate fountains. Not to miss is their homemade gelato station.
NIU by Vikings also has lots of choices for drinks: fruit juices, smoothies, coffee, tea, cocktails and a roving wine cart.
Here are a few of what I had that evening:
NIU by Vikings is worth visiting. The service is top-notch and very personal (don't hesitate to ask the staff to assist you of anything you need) and food was superb. Overall, NIU by Vikings is a good, or could even surpass a hotel buffet. I would love to go back here soon. Don't forget to call for reservations should you visit.
