For folks who enjoy multiple trips to the buffet station and piling your plate high with goodies, we’ve got a list for you. Vancouver has no shortage of delicious all-you-can-eat (AYCE) spots to enjoy this summer and beyond. AYCE can sometimes get a bad rep, but if you prefer to have total control over what (and how much) goes onto your plate, they’re definitely worth a try! Besides, a larger quantity does not always translate into lower quality. In fact, this list proves it.

Let’s dive right in! Here are 6 of the best all-you-can-eat spots to check out around the city.

Great Wall Mongolian B.B.Q

Head to the Great Wall for fresh buffet-style BBQ that’s cooked right in front of you, bringing a whole new meaning to ‘dinner and a show.’ This is a great spot in Kits for the days you’re feeling extra hungry and want to take advantage of the many rice rolls and Mongolian fare they have to offer.

Where: 2897 West Broadway

Rio Brazilian Steakhouse

For authentic Brazilian BBQ – including a variety of meats and unlimited sides – check out Rio Brazilian Steakhouse. In addition to the AYCE menu, there are daily chef creations ranging from salads to KETO and ATKINS-friendly options. This is a great spot to try out many different BBQ meats if you don’t have a go-to for summer yet.

Where: 1122 Denman Street

Shabusen Yakiniku

With AYCE lunch and dinner menus, you really can’t go wrong at Shabusen. If sushi is the vibe but you want to sample more than just your standard salmon or avocado rolls, Shabusen has a ton of sashimi, maki rolls, gyoza, and Korean BBQ options to choose from.

Where: 755 Burrard Street #202

Tandoori Flame

This one’s a personal fave, and it’s the largest AYCE Indian buffet & restaurant in North America with 150 items to choose from! While it’s a bit of a trek if you’re living in Vancouver, this Surrey-Delta spot is definitely worth the amazing amounts of curries, biryani, seafood, and desserts it has to offer. Plus, they have a ton of delicious veggie and vegan options, making it a great option for all dietary needs.

Reviews might be mixed at Tomokazu, but as far as AYCE sushi spots go – it’s definitely one of the most widely visited in Vancouver. Tomokazu has earned a reputation for a wide selection of sushi, udon bowls, donburi, and much more. Plus, they just completed renovations this year, and now have cat robot servers to bring you your order! Talk about an experience.

Where: 1128 West Broadway

All India Sweets & Restaurant

All India has been around for 20+ years, and their $10.95 lunch and dinner buffets have been a hit for years. Expect a variety of your fave Indian dishes, including veggie and chicken biryani, tandoori dishes, and seafood specialties. Load up on delicious sauces and fresh spices to take your meal to the next level.
