So Much to Taste, Eat and See at Banzai
Bring your appetite and explore…
|The exterior facade of Banzai- the red huge Banzai signage is very inviting.|
|The entrance to Japanese (and more) food paradise! Irasshaimase!|
|Being inside Banzai you'll feel you are somewhere in Tokyo.|
|Banzai spacious and cozy dining area.|
|I just can't help it! Selca outside Banzai.|
|Good thing we are seated on a large window pane overlooking the Manila Bay. What a sight to behold.|
|Dining supervisor Ms. Dina was very accommodating she even served me a freshly made Sukiyaki. Domo Ms. Dina!|
|My Banzai Sukiyaki bowl- great tasting juicy beef and hot noodle soup- my comfort food of choice specially when its raining.|
|Lot more sushi to satisfy your appetite.|
|Banzai Sashimi- delicately fresh and delicious. Good thing they have a seared version which I prefer than the raw ones.|
|This is my Banzai sushi plate- tried tasting every kind. Plate number 1.|
|What would go best with Japanese feast? Iced Tea, Lemonade, Chocolate Drink, Cappuccino, Hot Tea or Beer....Japanese Sake is also available upon request but with additional charge.|
|This is just one area of the salad/appetizer/starter section. All fresh vegetables delicately sliced.|
|Yes, there are Nachos at Banzai with variety of toppings and dip.|
|Best baked breads anyone?|
|Bread bun, sausages and beefy burger.|
|Cold cuts are perfect with Banzai fresh breads.|
|Gyozas at Banzai have 3 varieties- chicken, pork and vegetables. All tasted equally good!|
|Cold Sobas (noodles) for appetizer.|
|This pizza has no tomato sauce but generously made with cheese and shrimps.|
|The roast meat section. There is really nothing Japanese about it but a slice or two of their tasty roasted dishes is an added delight.|
A huge area is dedicated to dessert- here you can order a freshly made crepe with your choice of, bananas, mangoes or blueberries filling. Halo-halo Japanese style is also available, Banzai “turon”, small cakes, tiny cute custard pies and many more to savor. The variety is endless.
|The dessert section is like a candy store and honestly I really don't even know where to start. How about you?|
|This is very Pinoy- Banzai's version of Turon and Minatmis na Saging (sweetened plantains).|
|Fruits sliced into bite size pieces and a bowl of fruit salad.|
More desserts....the choices are very tempting at Banzai! This section is heaven for people with sweet tooth. But I tell you their cakes, tarts and made to order crepe are delicately sweetened allowing guest to indulge a little bit more.
|As much as I would like to try all of Banzai's desserts- this is my plate trying hard to accommodate as much as sweets I can eat. Plate no. 2.|
|The Mongolian Barbecue section- fresh vegetables, meats, rice and a wide array of sauces- yummy!|
|More grilled delights- savory chicken pieces, eggplant (nasu) and the humble white onions- sweet and juicy.|
|Sauces at Banzai are overflowing too!|
|My plate number 3: I thought it was bacon but it was the most tender beef slice that I ever tasted. Love the grilled stuff here and this is one of my many Banzai favorites.|
|Still on plate number 3-(they have small plates-okay!) On the top is the fried chicken, grilled pork, tonkatsu and yakitori (grilled chicken pieces with leeks on skewers). Love everything on this plate! Oishi kudasai!|
Amazing wall murals depicting the rich heritage of the Japanese culture. This is one tiny room that guests could dress up as a Sumo wrestler, Geisha, Shogun or a Ninja. All great for Banzai photo ops!
Posters outside the restaurant announcing promos and discounts. If you or a loved one will celebrate a birthday- the celebrant gets to feast for free. Group discounts are also being offered- the more people you take along with you at Banzai means more discount.
|Domo arigatou gozaimasu! Thank you very much Banzai and Zomato for a memorable gastronomical experience and for sure I will be back to try everything you have.|
But wait- there's more!!! Surprise- surprise!
Just as I thought the whole Japanese Banzai feast is over here comes a surprise buffet entry that you should all try. A Paella that is so tempting with heaping servings of meats, sausages and vegetables executed in the most delicious way for everyone to savor. Too bad I missed taking a photo of the stuffed lechon- yes they have it too! Weekends are better since they serve a variety of dishes.
My Final BANZAI verdict: Paying a little over a thousand is such a small price to spare for a lavish Banzai buffet. Considering the extensive array of dishes, the many food stations, inclusion of beverages, the Japanese themed ambiance and not to mention the Teppanyaki show (chefs moment to shine) and the music, the whole Banzai experience is one good memory that I will relive from time to time. Banzai means ten thousand years literally which is often referred to as shouts of excitement. Let's all give a shout-out to another ten thousand years of prosperity and good food - BANZAI!!!!
