Unlimited Dimsum @Lili New World Hotel

Lately, we wanted to try dimsum buffet in Hotel restaurants. We are searching for best dimsum in Manila since we miss our favorite dimsum place in Hong Kong. I heard a lot of good reviews about Lili, who makes exquisite dimsum. They are made fresh and hot upon order.

Lili is located in Pedro Gil corner M.H. Del Pilar in Manila.

We ordered almost everything except for Chiu Chow dumplings, Braised tripe, Pan fried fish fillet in coconut sauce, rice roll vegetables…

and those who didn’t came : Steamed fresh scallop, Har Gao, Steamed glutinous rice

The unlimited Dim Sum of Lili is from 12 to 2:30 p.m., Monday to Sunday for Php 988 net per person.

FINAL VERDICT:

The good are those I would order again when I revisit the place. What I like here is that almost all the dimsum choices are served per piece. If you are just in a small group, this would be an advantage since you get to taste other dimsum unlike other buffet. Comparing it to Shang Palace, they have their own dishes that are good, but I find Lili’s dimsum more unique and appetizing. If I were to choose, I would revisit Lili 🙂

The only bad side about here is the service can be really really slow. The first batch came in just okay, but the second batch took forever before it was served. We already follow it up twice or thrice before it came. I wouldn’t recommend it for those who are in a hurry. Good thing we don’t have any appointments in the afternoon, so we just patiently waited for the food to arrive.
