AED 35 Eat-All-You-Can Filipino Buffet at Ibis Al Rigga Every Thursday

A very good deal especially to those who want to try halal Filipino food. Every Thursday evening is a Filipino dinner buffet at Ibis Hotel in Al Rigga. From 7pm to 10:30pm, you can enjoy an unlimited serving of Pinoy food and drinks. The best part is it’s only AED 35 – you can never go wrong with this price.

We got to visit the restaurant one Thursday evening and saw a decent number of choices. The cooks of the restaurant are also Filipinos so you can expect the distinct flavour that fits well with our taste.

Check out this quick video below showcasing the food during our visit:

Thursday Filipino Food Buffet in Ibis Al Rigga Hotel

When you think about it, if you go to fast food restaurants and Pinoy eateries in Dubai, you will most likely spend a minimum of 25 to 35 Dirhams for an a la carte meal with a drink.

But with this offer, it’s quite a steal because you have an eat-all-you-can experience including drinks.

During our visit, the food options available include: beef mechado, pininyahan na manok, ensaladang talong, pancit canton, adobong kangkong, fried calamares, kropek, biko, fruits, and juices.

We especially enjoyed the beef mechado, fried calamares and the pininyahang manok.

The restaurant is at the Lounge Cafe, which is located at the lobby of the hotel. The nearest metro station is Al Rigga Metro Station (Red Line).
