This post is dedicated to the 8k+ availers of Metrodeal's voucher with Flower Stories Cafe.
It seems napaka-spotty ng restaurant na ito since I can't even find a good or reliable search in Google related to this. However, what I found out about the place is that they specialize more in flower arrangements for different occasions and that they just organized a buffet in their veranda or something like that just to accommodate the voucher availers. ( Please correct me if I'm wrong.)
We availed 6 vouchers for my family in celebration of my passing for the Nursing Licensure Examinations. Indeed, it's a glorious moment in my life which I consider to be a life-changing experience. My mom and I decided to celebrate my passing with some of my relatives and loved-ones thus, availing the vouchers with Flower Stories. Before purchasing, I tried Googling for some infos related to it. Unfortunately, nothing has been found, only a flower arrangement store at the exact street address as well. Much to my eagerness to treat my family to a buffet experience at a low-cost, we go for it.
Days before, nagpa-reserve na kami for 6 pax for a September 3, 2011 schedule. All was well upon reservation thru call, the host was friendly naman and answers your queries. Come September 3, we made it. The dinner buffet starts at 7pm until 9pm. However we were late for only 30 minutes at ito ang naabutan namin sa kanilang buffet area:
|Rice and carbonara pasta|
|Sushi: almost gone|
|Some beef viand (forgot the name) and a veggie viand|
|Salad area. Want some dressing?|
It was disappointing since my family frequents buffet restaurants. Ang kaunti lamang ng servings nila and controlled pa ang pagkuha mo since may taga-lagay ng food sa plate mo. And kung magre-refill man sila ng food sa buffet area, isa-isang type lang food ang rerefillan and kaunti din ang ilalagay. We were expecting a bit different from that dahil sa offer ng Metrodeal, they boasted: Flower Stories Cafe is a very well known, spacious, stylish restaurant in the heart of Intramuros. With dark flooring, rustic interior, and a scattering of international influence, it’s a fusion restaurant, mixing the styles of asian and international cuisine.
They don't also manage their guests well. Though you made a reservation, hindi pa din assurance yun na may certain spot ka na when you get there. Other guests came late (about 30 minutes from our arrival) and was asked to just wait in the patio area, standing. Some decided to walk-away since parang wala na din silang aabutan na food.
My tip for others who are planning to eat here is to go back frequently to their buffet area to satisfy your hunger. I managed not eating breakfast and lunch thinking I will be fulfilled dinnertime but to my dismay, no. I think you need to demand to the host to frequently refill their food. Also, come early, you don't want to ran out of food or worst, a table to eat on.

Hi guys! Just an update :)

They visited and tried Flower Stories right after my visit with them. After reading their reviews and basing my judgment with their photos, I could say that there has been a drastic improvement with their food and service. Although I haven't given the resto another chance to try it again and give another review, I believe that they can manage to gain foodistas back their trust. To Flower Stories Cafe, more power!
