Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

NIU will always be our go to place whenever we celebrate our anniversary. You'll never get bored or tired with the extensive variety of food, properly and meticiously served. I love the beef section where you can choose how your angus or lamb steak will be cooked, finished with your choice of sauce. Although they have at least 3 choices of pasta, we always get the truffled ravioli! Oysters and Wine were perfect, refreshing drink selection as well. I hope they can add bleu cheese dressing for the salad because that's my favorite. Probably the least part that I get to visit is the dessert section.. because it's too far from where we normally sit and this needs a little caring because they're not always usually filled. I hope the point system (Vikings card) when dining here is different from the usual point system in Vikings, so that you can have a discount.. at least 😁. Thank you Sir Ronald and to your staff for their welcoming and warm smiles.

During the latter part of our lunch meeting, I decided to visit the dessert area to get some sweets and pastries for our table. But just as I was about to get some small pastries on the shelf, the lady bussing the area hurriedly cleared off everything even with my clear presence there in front of her. As I have understood, it must be their cut-off time for lunch. However, people are still inside and some are still getting food. I felt offended as I was left there standing with no clue how to get food as most of the food and the serving spoon and tongs are being cleared out. The saddest part about it is that the lady bussing the area knows very well that I am going to go for desserts but still opted to clear the area without asking me first or letting me take some at the very least. This is where the situation turned into a good one: The supervisor Mr. Rahjie Herrera came out of nowhere to check up on me if I needed anything. He must've seen me standing there looking perplexed. When I told him my concern, he immediately apologized and hurried off to get me some utensils so I could get the dessert I needed. Not only that but he extended his service to visit our table and personally apologize for the bad experience I had and even offered us he would get us some dessert that was already cleared off the dessert table. These gestures of anticipation and owning up to mistakes (even though it was not his) is very commendable and what makes the dining experience better. I hope the management will look into these situations as being in the customer service industry, crews and management must be aware that extending for a little more time is inevitable as people eat in different paces.

We came here to celebrate my mother's birthday and had a group of 12, and I'm happy to say that everyone thoroughly enjoyed their meals. The menu has a good selection of dishes, although some of my brothers were disappointed that there were no oysters or street food options available. Unfortunately, the lechon skin wasn't as crispy as we had hoped for. On the bright side, we appreciated that the restaurant still offered traditional Filipino treats such as bibingka and puto bumbong. The staff were exceptionally friendly and attentive, especially Kenneth, who always went above and beyond to assist my mom, who needed some extra help. Despite being a busy day, the restaurant was not crowded, and there was ample space between tables. Additionally, the toilets were kept clean throughout our visit, adding to our overall enjoyable experience.

This is our favorite buffet resto because the food and the place are clean. The food are delicious. They always refill the shrimp tempura and all food unlike in Vikings Marikina. Rahjie the supervisor is also the best. He always see to it that all the customers are satisfied. He always offer help in assisting us with our plates and doing extra effort to serve specially when our table is far. Actually I also celebrated my birthday last jan 2023 in the function room. I had 60 guests and they were all satiafied with the food and service. Rahjie helped us in so many ways. The waiter Kenneth is also very helpful to us. They are doing a great job. Make us keep coming back to NIU Podium. ,

I had a great birthday celebration experience at Niu Vikings at The Podium. It was actually my 2nd time celebrating my birthday at the restaurant and surely it did not disappoint. We were 4 people and everyone enjoyed the sumptuous dinner with fresh selections of seafood: oyster and shrimps, plus of course the Cebu Lechon and the chuck eye carvings. My friend also enjoyed the many selections of sushi and the fresh sashimi. What I also love about Niu is its wide array of desserts and drinks. My BFF went crazy over the Sangria and the glasses of wine we paired with our steaks. It is so worth the money because of the taste. Most of all, thanks to Sir Rahjie Herrera for making it extra wonderful, he assisted us from our booking to table assignment, and would roam from time to time, checking us out and entertaining us as we enjoy our meals. He even took time to serve us additional glasses of sangria and white wine. We also love the blackened fish with mango beurre blanc sauce which we plated on our own . Overall, it was an amazing experience and my birthday was happier indeed, with great people and great customer service. Will surely come back to Niu over and over again.. Kudos to Sir Rahjie.

We had a great night, from booking (c/o Ms. Lovely, she even grant our request to be seated by the window, kudos to the great service) to the dining itself, everything went smooth ❤️ We loved the selection of food from meat,seafoods, pastry to drinks & wine. The ambiance, pianist & singer add to the romantic vibe of the night. Thank you! We will definitely go back :)

Niu Podium is exceptional. We are satisfied with the quality and variety of dishes. All servers are very kind and approachable, especially sir Kenneth. We found the steak and the carbonara our most favorite dish. It is also our first time trying caviar, it blended well to the dishes. Although, we are quite disappointed to the sushi station since the sashimi cuts are thick and still has fish bones.

Honestly the food was really great, loved the medium rare beef as well as the bubblegum ice cream. Not to mention the birthday cake that was brought to me while eating, it tasted really good. Service was also great, Sir Marky was assigned as our waiter and he did a splendid job handling our needs abd was kind enough to also introduce himself. The overall vibe, service, and food was such a great experience and will definitely come back on other special ocassions.

Great place for gathering of family and friends, with wide selection of food and drinks. There was also an alcoholic drink, sangria, that was included in the buffet selection. Will be able to maximize the time during the buffet, complete with sharing stories and experiences with the family. A big bonus was the 50% off buffet promo from BDO and with no service charge as well. Great job and keep up the great service.

Good food and good service. Queuing was minimal even if peak hours. Kudos to the servers and staff. Awesome job on a hectic Friday weekend. Food was high quality too. From Filipino, Japanese, Chinese and etc. Save some space for desserts as well. Puto bumbong and bibingka with coffee is great including ice cream selection as well. I commend Arjay, Marky and Berna for their hospitality.

The restaurant caters to many tastes, and the diversity of foods made it difficult for me to choose what to eat (positively, mind you.)The service was also great. The staff were nice and accommodating, but the time for the staff to deliver the cheque made it go down a star as we waited for about 20 minutes before we got our change.

Food was okay. The ribeye steak was cut thinly hence the gamy texture. Lamb was good. The spotlight belonged to the puto bumbong!!! We always go back to any vikings branch because of the puto bumbong hehe Nice service c/o Jovin and Ronald

Excellent service! We like celebrating family occasions at NIU. The buffet spread is great. They always have fresh seafoods and tender steaks! The best part is, the people (from entrance, to dining, to exit) are all accommodating, warm, and pleasant. The lounge pianist and singer’s performance adds to the overall experience.
