Sometimes, just one regular-sized meal can’t cut it. For when we need to eat like champions, there are more than enough all-you-can-eat buffets in the city up for grabs. Here is a list of some of our favourites – whether it be sheer variety or obviously, the quantity, we’re loving the spreads.

The buffet at Global Fusion is one of the best buffet spreads in the city for sheer variety. The buffet features six different counters, including soups, salads, sushi, sashimi, teriyaki, teppanyaki, fried items, curries, and a range of both cocktails and mocktails.

While the sushi here doesn’t hold a candle to what you can get at other Asian restaurants in the area {The Fatty Boa comes to mind}, we highly recommend you save your gastronomic reservoirs for their baked crabs, prawn tempura and dim sum selections.

Price: INR 760 for lunch, INR 1,340 for dinner

Timings: Noon to 4pm for lunch, 7pm to 12.30am for dinner

All Stir Fry

All Stir Fry’s buffet includes three starters – two vegetarian, one non-vegetarian, one non-vegetarian main course and three desserts. What it lacks in quantity, the buffet more than enough makes up for with customisation.

Famous for its wok, the restaurant has a buffet spread of raw meats, vegetables and noodles. the server will hand you a {pretty large} empty bowl, which can then be stocked with whatever we like. This is then handed over to the live cooking station, where a chef will prepare this according to our preferences, from sauces to cooking time. They have two outlets, in Andheri and Colaba, so take your pick.

Price: INR 780 plus taxes

Timings: Noon to 3pm, 7pm to 11pm {Andheri}, noon to 3pm, 7pm to 12.30am {Colaba}

Barbeque Nation

Barbeque Nation’s buffet includes European, Mediterranean, North Indian and of course, barbeque items. Their starters include five vegetarian and five non-vegetarian items, ten each for the main course, and ten desserts. It’s practically impossible not to find at least half a dozen dishes we want to overeat.

Each table is equipped with its own mini-grill, and the servers will regularly refill your grill station. We had our own choice of marinades and meats, which left the carnivores very satisfied.

Price: INR 590 upwards for weekdays, INR 721 upwards for weekends

Timings: Noon-4.30pm for lunch, 7pm-12.45amĀ forĀ dinner

This is a buffet for those who like to keep things new – the buffet menu at 022 changes on a daily basis. What can be sure of is that it will include continental, Indian and Asian food, with both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. We also like this buffet for the ambience – The Trident is a great place to relax and enjoy some downtime on a slow weekend post the buffet.

They also have a live tandoor counter for the kebab-lovers, and if you’re keeping it healthy {we’re not}, their salad selection is also pretty exceptional.

Price: INR 2,200

Timings: 12.30pm to 3pm for lunch, 7.30pm to 11pm for dinner

Tiffin Box etc

Tiffin Box etc is ideal for those looking for a quick corporate lunch, but have still worked up an appetite from all those morning meetings. Located in the Bandra Kurla Complex, Tiffin Box etc offers a very impressive Indian spread.

The fare is very homely and familiar, and their dal and palak paneer won more than one fan at our table. We also suggest you stock up on their egg curry and their chicken kolhapuri, both of which tend to be exceptional.

Price: INR 533

Timings: Noon to 3.30pm
