Hwangso-Ga: A Korean Buffet Restaurant in Manila

Korean culture has been making a craze in the country especially with television shows/drama (Kdrama) and music (Kpop) for quite a time now. They also invaded the tastebuds of the Filipinos when it comes to Korean delicacies. There is Kimchi, Bulgogi, and of course Samgyeopsal.

Now, if you love Korean food that’s unlimited, Hwangso-Ga is a perfect place for you. The restaurant is located in the streets of Adriatico, Ermita, Manila, just across Robinson’s Place Manila.


Hwangso-Ga offers a variety of famous Korean food. They are known for their unlimited brisket and samgyeopsal. Hence, you will enjoy the authentic Korean dishes and a wide range of fresh and delectable food.

According to the owner, the freshest ingredients are bought together in their home-made Korean food.



Food selections were good. There’s enough Korean dishes to choose from (they can still add more, maybe?) But above all, I enjoyed the samgyeopsal. Also, try their different dips and sauces, it will add up extra flavors to your food. Though, for me,  the food selection can still be improved from good to best. For now, it’s a 3/5.


I love the restaurant crews’ attentiveness. They were all quick in catering our concerns and questions. I can also see smiling faces when they are attending our needs. What I really observe in restaurants are the staff’s working ethics while they are enjoying their responsibilities.  I’ll give a 4/5.


Actually the place is not that enticing, it’s just like a boring place to dine in. Interiors are just plain– though the entrance door is full of restaurant’s advertising stickers, so I’m expecting that the interiors will be as jolly as with the outside appearance. It’s also a bit dark inside. I don’t know if that has something to do with their culture or whatnot. So it’s a 2.5/5.


I guess, PhP 499 for an unlimited brisket, samgyeopsal, and other dishes is fair enough. I mean, you can eat all you want. So if you are a certified buffet devourer, this is a place for you– your payment will not be wasted, it’s worth it. For me, it’s 3/5 for the price.

Hwangso-Ga is just on my list of Korean restaurants to go to, but it’s not in my top priorities when I’m craving for Korean food.

So, if you want to try Hwangso-Ga and experience their unlimited Korean selections, they are located at 1547 M. Adriatico St., Cor. Pedro Gil St., Ermita, Manila. They are open daily, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm for a lunch buffet and 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm for a dinner buffet. For inquiries, you can call them at 63 2 405-0100.
