Cheap Buffets in Singapore: Eat All You Can for Under $17++

profileDion Lim

As much as I am very tempted by all the 1-for-1 buffet deals, I’m not the biggest fan as they are often too expensive.

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

But as much as I want to eat my money’s worth, my wallet disagrees.

Being a big eater, I want to enjoy the variety of food available at buffets.

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


During phase 2 of Circuit Breaker, many buffet operators have switched to either an ala carte service for their buffet items or have resorted to creative ways like covered trolleys to bring food and condiments to diners.

As a result, I couldn’t get my money’s worth as I couldn’t get the items I wanted without having to order them multiple times, and it’s sooo tedious to do so.

That’s why I was relieved when I heard self-service buffet lines are resuming on April 30!

Time to go nuts on my favourite buffet items!

When you think of Korean cuisine, 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.

When I think of Indian Cuisine, Prata would be my go-to meal! 

All-you-can-eat Prata? Wonder if I can stack it up like crepes.

Al Jasra (Halal)

Charging just $7.90 nett, the Halal Muslim-owned Al Jasra offers the cheapest buffet in town — period.

For that price, you get to feast on up to 16 different varieties of Prata to your heart’s content.

The best part? The place is open 24/7, which means you can have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or supper! Or all meals if you like as well!
