1. Feast Buffet

This is the largest buffet in Washington, and it’s an Asian fusion buffet. There is a huge selection of food to choose from at the Feast buffet. It’s $35 on weekdays and $50 on weekends for dinners, which makes it a little pricey. There are also free soft drinks, a chocolate fountain, and a crepe maker.

This restaurant is huge. All their food, from sushi to ribs, is delicious and fresh. The only downside is when there’s lobster or something similar being served, there’s a huge line right down the middle of the buffet, which creates a negative experience.

Hibachi Buffet is a Chinese buffet that serves a wide selection of food at an extremely affordable price. Their lunches are $13.99 for adults, and their dinners are $19.99 for adults from Monday to Friday. On Saturday and Sunday, it’s $20.99.

They have amazingly fresh chow mein, crab legs, and crawfish. The service is friendly, and the environment is casual. This is the perfect place to go for a large party since it’s so affordable. However, it is worth noting that this buffet is often quite crowded.

3. Gateway To India

Gateway To India is the best Indian food buffet in Tacoma. The lunch buffet is perfect for any occasion, and the food selection is excellent for the price. However, their nun can be a little hard or thin depending on the day. But to offset that, they have an impressive and delicious curry selection.

The price is super affordable, and you can replenish your buffet. There’s even dessert that you can get here, which is a huge up in my books. This place is slightly up-class, so it’s somewhere you can go with co-workers, a significant other, or some friends.

Distance from downtown Tacoma: about 1 mile

4. China Sun Buffet

This is a popular Chinese buffet with a huge selection of mouthwatering food at killer prices. They have great fried rice, egg fu yang, and noodles. This is also a very affordable buffet at around $17 per person. 

China Sun Buffet is one of the cleaner buffets, and their food is always hot and fresh. They have a slightly modern design, with plants as decorations. It’s also a fairly casual environment.

Distance from downtown Tacoma: about 25 miles

5. Kent Super Buffet

Kent Super Buffet is another popular buffet that serves great Asian food. They have an amazing sushi selection to choose from, so you won’t go hungry here. Everything is clean, and the decoration adds a nice touch. They have a nice chandelier and a good luck pool where you can drop pennies. 

All the food here is fresh and tastes great. Although, sometimes it can get so packed that a line goes outside, so consider going later or earlier than usual. This is also a very affordable place to go to for decent food.

Distance from downtown Tacoma: about 20 miles

6. King Buffet

King Buffet is a buffet that serves quality Chinese food. Although the selection isn’t big, all their food is top-notch quality. It’s decent for its price at $25 per person (including taxes), and the service is really friendly and attentive. 

There is typically more food during lunch, so I recommend going for lunches here. Cleanliness is excellent everywhere but the bathrooms. It’s also worth noting that they do an automatic 10% service charge if your group has six or more people.

Distance from downtown Tacoma: about 25 miles

7. Kum Kang Sun BBQ Grill Buffet

This is a popular all-you-can-eat Korean BBQ, and you’ll love this place if you like KBBQ. They have great short ribs and tea that’s included in the price. The service is very welcoming and accommodating. They’ll greet you, switch out your grill if it gets dirty, and bring you anything you need. 

They have super fresh food, and there’s a wide selection of meats to choose from. It’s also one of the cheapest KBBQ places in the Seattle area. Everything is also very clean, which is a big plus for me.

Distance from downtown Tacoma: about 13 miles

8. Golden Spoon

Golden Spoon is a newer buffet established in 2022 with one of the largest varieties of food. It is a little pricy, but the food is fresh since it’s prepared from scratch.

The ambiance is more casual, and the design is modern. They have great, friendly staff here as well. A recommendation I have is to get their macaroni and cheese and short ribs.

Distance from downtown Tacoma: about 13 miles

9. Cham Garden Korean BBQ Buffet

This is another great KBBQ place with delicious meats. There are also plenty of drink options. The place is pretty small, so there may be a wait time, but you can make reservations here. 

This buffet has a modern design and friendly staff. Everything is super clean here, and there’s also complimentary Booricha tea which is always lovely. This is also a very affordable KBBQ to go to.

Distance from downtown Tacoma: about 8 miles

10. Harvest Buffet

Harvest Buffet is another Asian food buffet that is super affordable at just $17 per adult and has some of the best food selections. For that reason, it is pretty busy. But it’s very spacious, so you won’t feel crammed.

The wide variety of choices is the largest perk to this buffet. There is a Mongolian grill, massive amounts of sushi, a chocolate fountain, a cotton candy machine, an ice cream station, and nearly 50 different drink choices. You probably couldn’t eat all the things you want to eat if you had five rounds.

This is another casual buffet, and everything is clean. The design is modern and minimalistic. 

Distance from downtown Tacoma: about 4 miles

11. Mizuki Buffet

If you like sushi, this is the place to go. Mizuki has a large selection of sushi, and all their sushi tastes amazing. Aside from their sushi, they also have plenty of foods like prime ribs, crab legs, lobster tails, and more. The prices here are a little high, so I recommend going here for special occasions.

There is plenty of parking since this buffet shares parking with a large mall, and it’s fairly spacious, with tall ceilings and a modern design. 

Distance from downtown Tacoma: about 25 miles

12. Golden Corral Buffet & Grill

This is an American buffet with great fried chicken and a bakery. Golden Corral is typically filled, but you won’t have a problem finding seats or having few food choices. Golden Corral has around 150 different foods to choose from, from fried chicken to their steaks. Everything is juicy and delicious.

This is definitely one of the cleaner buffets as well, with no food or drink spills anywhere. This place is also reasonably priced, which is a plus in my books.

Distance from downtown Tacoma: about 13 miles
