While it’s not littered with spots to check out, Vancouver does have its fair share of all you can eat buffets and restaurants around the city. While we don’t often take advantage of them, every once in a while we find ourselves extremely hungry, so we head to one of these.
Here are the best all you can eat places in Metro Vancouver.
This spot specializes in Korean-style BBQ, which means that you can pick whatever meat you want, then you cook it up on a grill in the middle of the table. They also do shabu shabu, which is Japanese hot pot, and have a variety of sushi available.
Hours: Daily, Lunch, 11AM-2: 30 PM and Dinner, 5PM-10: 30 PM
Where: 202-755 Burrard Street
Cost: BBQ Lunch, $20.95 and Dinner, $31.95
These guys do not mess around with their AYCE options. The pork and beef belly is delicious though, as are their chicken wings. Be warned before you get blindsided- there is a time limit of 90 minutes, you need to buy a drink and Damso will charge you for any wings left over from your order. Play by the rules though, and you’re in for a treat.
Hours: You can get pork belly anytime, chicken wings are 9PM-11PM
Where: 770 Bute Street
Cost: $18.99 for pork and $17.99 for wings
This spot specializes in hot pot soup but has an array of items that you can add to the base. Veggies? Check. Seafood? Check. Beef and pork? Double check. A great choice for rainy and cold days, when you know that all you really need to feel better is a ton of soup.
Hours: 11AM-12AM (so says Google, but we think they close sooner some days)
Where: 1788 W Broadway
Cost: Like $30 for AYCE plus soup base
Our top choice for Indian buffet in the city. Open for either lunch or dinner, this spot boasts over 70 different food items for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. It’s a great price too.
Hours: Lunch Daily, 11:30AM-4PM and Dinner Daily, 4PM-10PM
Where: 901 W Broadway
Cost: Lunch $16.95-$18.95 and Dinner $21.95-$22.95, $1 added on holidays
This one is definitely for Vancouver’s self-proclaimed carnivores. A neverending stream of servers presents different cuts of meat for you to work through, plus there are sides available in case you get overwhelmed.
Hours: Lunch, Monday to Thursday, 12-3PM, Friday, 12-3: 30 PM, Friday/Saturday, 12-4PM and Dinner, Sunday to Thursday, 5:30-10PM, Friday, 5:30-11PM and Saturday, 5-11PM
Where: 1122 Denman Street
Cost: $23-$25 for lunch and $33.50-$38 for dinner
And those are our top choices for the best all you can eat experiences in Vancouver! No matter where you want to go, definitely skip the meal before it. Trust us- your stomach will thank you.
