Ultimate Guide to Cheap Buffets in Singapore Under $16++

profileDion Lim

As much as I am very tempted by all the 1-for-1 buffet deals, I would admit that I’m not the biggest buffet fan as I often cannot eat enough to justify the cost.

For some big eaters, going for buffets is value for money, as they can eat their money’s worth and more.

As much as I would want to eat my money’s worth, my stomach disagrees.

I even had difficulty finishing my Yakun set for breakfast this morning, barely making it past half of my Kaya toast…

This makes going for buffet a total waste of money for me.

But I still want to enjoy the wide variety of food available at buffets.

This led me on the path to compiling this list of cheap buffet venues in Singapore.


In case you were wondering, buffets are still allowed in phase 2 of Circuit Breaker — albeit with safe distancing restrictions and management.

Buffet operators still can’t do a self-service buffet line, but many have switched to either an ala carte service for their buffet items or have resorted to other creative ways like covered trolleys to bring food and condiments to diners.

When you think of Korean Cusine, Korean BBQ is probably the first thing that pops into your head.

It appears in most of the Korean dramas we watch. Paired with a glass of soju and the sizzling of the meat, the thought of it is enough to make you salivate.

If you have watched the Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo, you would have known and mastered the 4 step BFN (Barbeque, Fried Rice and Naengmyeon) routine to make the most out of your Korean BBQ experience.

BFN stands for Barbeque. Fried Rice. Naengmyeon.
