Get-togethers are often about making everyone around you happy, and nothing makes people happier as much as being in a room full of glorious food.

Whether you’re planning a reunion with the friends who you haven't seen in awhile or treating your family to the feast they deserve, splurging on a buffet is a rightful reward you should never hesitate to give yourself and your loved ones. At Flavors Restaurant and Oz Bar in Holiday Inn & Suites Makati, you can take your pick from a bevy of delicious deals that are all 100% worth it—and get them at an exclusive, unbeatable price right here on Deal Grocer. You’re welcome.


Bond with your best buds over a Lunch or Dinner Buffet for 4

By now, you’ve grown up enough to know that you and your friends’ tastes will never be exactly alike—and that’s precisely what makes your relationship interesting. It might seem impossible to please everyone when it comes to deciding where to eat, but at Flavors, all of you can have your cake and eat it too—literally, because their dessert section is TDF. Savor the bestselling Ube Cheesecake and the crowd-fave Red Velvet Cake, but not before you all satisfy your cravings at the Salad Bar, Sushi and Sashimi Station, Asian Noodle Station, and more. Don’t forget to pile some tasty grilled pork, fish, and chicken skewers onto your plate and make sure to take advantage of your complimentary round of iced tea or soda.

Treat your folks to a Weekend Dinner Buffet for 4

For all their sacrifices and hard work, parents deserve to be treated as often as possible. Give them a much-needed break with a sumptuous dinner buffet, and catch up on each other’s lives while you’re at it. Mom will love Flavors’ take on Adobo, but go ahead and reassure her that hers still holds the top spot in your heart. Meanwhile, give Dad a free pass and let him indulge in several bites of the sinful Lechon Kawali, tender yet crispy pork belly deep-fried to perfection. Plus, with Flavors’ themed buffet nights, you can have your fill of prawns, mussels, and oysters on Seafood Night Fridays and sink your teeth into juicy cuts of USDA ribeye steak on Steak Night Saturdays.

Want to enjoy this deal on your own instead? Totally okay. Get 39% OFF this Weekend Dinner Buffet for 1.


Give the kids a taste of the good life with a Sunday Brunch Buffet for 4

Not a lot of little ones are adventurous with their food (hotdogs and chicken nuggets for days!), but with the appetizing Sunday brunch spread at Flavors, you won’t have trouble convincing them to try something new. Sweet breakfast favorites such as pancakes, waffles, and French toast are super kid-friendly, and you can even introduce them to Filipino delicacies like taho and champorado to help them connect to their roots. There’s even a children’s buffet station especially set up for young diners! You can choose from a wide selection of meat, seafood, and vegetable dishes if you’re not in the mood for breakfast food, and for a festive ending, share a glass of halo-halo or the tallest twirls of soft-serve ice cream. Do you miss Hotel InterContinental Manila’s cult-favorite crepe samurai? One bite of Holiday Inn & Suites Makati’s Mango Crepe Samurai will take you back, as it follows the same recipe!

Chill by the Rooftop with Pizza & Popcorn with 2 Drinks or 1 Bottle of Wine and 1 Meal at Oz Bar

If you need a quick breather, spend some downtime at Oz Bar, the hotel’s hip rooftop bar overlooking Makati’s cityscape. Munch on your 10-inch pizza (your choice of New York or Hawaiian) and 1 serving of popcorn either at their al fresco dining area by the pool or indoors by the vibrant bar. While you’re satisfying your cravings and leisurely chatting with your companions, down your comfort food with your choice of draft beer, iced tea, or soda.

Craving a boozy dining treat? Unwine-d with 1 bottle of wine and pair it with your choice of Beef Salpicao or Fish & Chips. Designed with modern touches and boasting an exclusive atmosphere, the rooftop bar provides an intimate wine-n-dine experience that allows you to focus on spending quality time with your constants.


Want to make a staycation out of your pizza-by-the-rooftop experience? This Deluxe Room Stay for 3 that's perfect for barkada trios comes with a 10-inch Pizza from Oz Bar.

No matter how you choose to bond with your loved ones, we hope your heart is filled with love and your tummy is filled with good food, always. Happy dining!
