Favorite All-You-Can-Eat Restaurant?

Chain, non-chain, buffet or not, Korean BBQ or Japanese Sushi, or whatever.

As long as it's AYCE ... do you have a favorite?

I think mine is Happy Family Restaurant in Monterey Park.

  1. I like Hokkaido in Long Beach off the 405 Fwy and Cherry.

        Forgot to mention the Universal Hilton AYCE buffet.

          +1 for Fogo de Chao. A meat lovers Disneyland plus the best salad bar in the city.

            Love LOVE their salad bar. Best AYCE I've been too.

          2. re: J.L.

            2nd Fogo de Chao and all comments entered - between the salad bar and the meats, its an AYCE place where you will truly eat all that you can because their food is really good. So that's one downside - its hard not to gorge yourself here to the point you feel pretty bad afterwards. And, on the flipside, its price enough that if you don't gorge yourself, you'll probably leave feeling like you didn't get your money's worth.

          3. I like Radjhani's, in no small part because it isn't a buffet, and hence lacks that steam-table ick factor.

            That said, the greatest AYCE meal of my life was the Sunday brunch buffet at the Singapore Four Seasons. It rendered me completely useless for the next 24 hours but, sweet baby Jesus in a red feather boa, was it ever worth it.

            A good Singapore buffet is what the SGV desperately needs, not the bazillionth boba house or "luxury" seafood mausoleum.

              1. Hwang Hae Doh in Artesia. The only thing I don't like is that the grill/grate always comes out smelling like cleaning solution, but the food is good, and $9.99 for the basic combo of brisket, pork belly, and barbecue pork (which I skip on.)

                I know better KBBQ but it is not AYCE.
