I’ve found out about this restaurant / cafe just in time for Chino’s birthday. Apparently it has just opened early this year and has received good response from customers.
The Movie Stars Cafe is located at the By the Bay section of Mall of Asia, right next to Hooters. We arrived at exactly 6PM in time for their dinner buffet and people are starting to pile up. According to the receptionist, they are fully booked tonight and since we do not have reservations they would have to seat us on a non-couch table for 2. It was fine for us since the table is near the stage and with good vantage point of the whole room.
The ambience of the place is overwhelming. Well lit and looks like a movie museum from the posters, photos, huge screens and hundreds of monitors playing movies. There are also some life size figures of SpiderMan, Batman, CatWoman, and more.
But that isn’t the main attraction. To add excitement to kids and movie enthusiasts, there are also characters roaming around whom you can take photos with. There’s SpiderMan, Iron Man, Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, a Stormtrooper, masked killer from Scream, etc. They are very game to pose and take pictures and play with some kids.
As with food, just don’t expect too much. The Dino Buffet costs P699 plus P100 if it’s a weekend or holiday plus P99 if you are getting unlimited drinks too. There isn’t much choices as
well, it’s more of a carnivore’s feast. You can have custom burgers and
hotdog sandwich complete with sauces and add ons which tastes good. There’s 1 kind of pasta, salad, chili con carne, beef with mushrooms, potato salad, fish fillet plus some cakes and fruits for dessert. Best thing about the food is that they are all served fresh and newly cooked from the kitchen at the back of the buffet table.
In between eating, taking pictures and making sure you see all the displays around, you will get to enjoy intermission numbers from the characters. It is done every 30 minutes so make sure not to miss Barbie singing and dancing, about 10 Iron men gettin their robot moves on and a special participation of Grease cast.
It was indeed a feast for the eyes and your tummy. It was hard to leave not knowing which new character might come out, don’t want to miss out on good photo op. 😁 If you are celebrating an occasion or just want to have a good time, come over to the Movie Stars Cafe! 😊
