A few months ago, HB was raving about this nice and lovely restaurant. So, we decided to make it a must as soon as we could. We met up with our two good old friends last Sunday and had a wonderful buffet lunch at Yakimix Sushi - Smokeless Grill - Restaurant in SM Mall of Asia.

Yakimix is a well-designed restaurant, and so is the decor. Most seats are wide, cushioned with soft and maroon/cream colored fabric.

We arrived early and the place was not yet full but after a few minutes it was packed with diners already.

There was a good range of options on main dishes which was cool. They served a handful cooked and raw food selections.

It has a "smokeless" grill stove where you can prepare your meal right at your table.

I had a crisp blend of sliced carrot, string bean (or was it asparagus?) and white onion all wrapped up in bacon. I want to reduce my tummy fat but how can I refuse this. It was tender and flavorful. I could eat this by the truckload.

HB and NM scarfed down many servings of Japanese cuisines - the creamy shrimp tempura and different maki rolls.

Got a sweet tooth? NdL and I shared ten different desserts. But unlike the main offerings, some of these weren't really quite impressive.

However, the different flavor of Selecta Ice cream was a good way to end the meal. NdL chose to sprinkle it with colorful toppings while I ate mine plain. Oh did I mention they also had ice drops.

Yakimix also features self-serve bars for fresh fruits, salads, Red Ribbon cakes, and soups like Fish Lip and Sinigang na Baboy. For drinks, they offer refillable iced tea, mango juice, blue lemonade and soft-drinks.

Even though the restaurant was jam-packed and so busy that Sunday, some of the waiters were attentive and took the time to keep our drinks refilled constantly before even it gets half empty.

The restaurant also has a very large patio overlooking Manila Bay. Overall, Yakimix Sushi - Smokeless Grill - Restaurant makes it the perfect choice for a day out and worth the money.

  14. Thanks for the nice review.

    We might consider visiting this place if time permits. I hope we could take pictures of me and my friends there. ^_^

  15. i'm planning to go there on Wednesday with friends.

  16. I have been to MOA YAKIMIX with many kids and as a foreigner, I found their service very rude to the kids and to me, where I pay the same amount like the others. They placed a none grill table to my seats where it is a grill buffet. I don't know whether they are telling us to grill or to just do nothing. I am going there with so many kids at least twice a year, but the service today was like that they don't need customers to be there. They were saying in Tagalog that there are also others waiting and they don't need us thinking that I don't understand Tagalog. as a customer, I felt so bad and I would like to directly complain to the owner of the restaurant.

  17. Hi thanks for this very informative info.. will be trying it this friday... Do you think Greenbelt branch has good service too?

  18. Hi churbz,
