Buffets are great because you get to eat as much as you want at a set price. You get a whole array of dishes laid out in front of you, from salad dressing to the juicy bacon strips, and boiled eggs to rendang chickens, and a whole lot more.

Still, though, despite the fact that you can eat all you want, buffets can also cost a lot too, so it’s not often that you see people going out for buffets just because they feel like it. If you are looking for cheaper buffets that will not cause too big a  dent in your pockets, we have the perfect guide for you!
