Looking for cheap all-you-can-eat places 2013/8/18 19:11
I found one but that is mostly spaghetti and desserts. Where else are there where I can sample more kinds of Japanese food and don't cost much ? How do I pronounce them in Japanese if I wish to ask the locals ?
Are there any in smaller cities and towns ?

How cheap do you want it to be, it's best to state a budget so people can refer to.

899,

I really don't know how much to expect. That's why I just mention "cheap". I will guess any buffet meal below 3000 to 4000 yen should be considered cheap in Japan ? Can you recommend any buffetmeal of Japanese food on the cheaper end ? A normal bento set is too light for me; I will need at least 2 sets per meal; so might as well look for buffet types.

The word cheap means alot, I opened a thread on all you can eat crabs for 90 minutes the price is about 6000 yen, and that is still considered cheap.

But for your budget, you can check this link, but you haven't stated which area.

I think there are some hotels that have buffet meal at low price.

Thank you for the links. Hope more will come in for other areas.
Is the "ou" pronounced as in "old" or "how" ?

For all you can eat, inquire with the term ''tabehodai'' or look for this sign 関西いのち.

My favorite all-you-can-eat place in Japan is at Kushiya Monogatari. Bento.com lists all their locations in Tokyo. I have also eaten at the one in Osaka which is where the restaurant chain originated. It's basically all-you-can eat kushiage which is deep fried foods on a stick. You can read a blog post on it here:

http://japan-hub.com/2013/08/08/japan-eat-deep-fried-gluttony-at-kushi...

Costs 2500 Yen per person. Besides kushiage they also have all kinds of other foods like curry and salads and pastas and soups and dessert.
