On a two week trip to Japan, one doesn't necessarily want to eat Japanese cuisine for three meals a day ;) So, one night we were starving hungry and saw this buffet. Wow! So cheap, and you can also purchase unlimited alcohol for 1 hour for 700yen. The pizzas were all freshly prepared, and there was loads of choice of... More

Came for lunch. All-you-can-eat buffet for 710 yen (junior high school student and above), 610 yen (elementary school student), 410 yen (up to three-year-old child). Several pizzas, four types of spaghetti, sliced fried potatoes, and (Japanese-style) curry and rice. All-you-can-drink soda/juice/coffee/tea cost an extra 310 yen. You can order just one soda/juice/coffee/tea if you like. Free ice water is available.... More

Dining out in japan can be quite expensive but this place offers all you can eat for just over a 1000 yen. The menu consists of about 6 or 7 different pizzas, spaghetti with meat balls a salad bar and strangely curry and rice. They also have drinks packages for those that want them

My wife and I were getting tired of Japanese food after 2 weeks here and fancied something different. We didn't expect much but were pleasantly surprised. Pizza was ok, not gourmet but good enough for a casual dinner. Some were hotter than others but if you picked the freshest they were fine. Wine and beer were totally fine. We made... More

They also have a small salad bar. convenient when you are out and about and reasonably priced. not the best pizza in the world but not the worst we have had... More

1020 Yen for all you can eat pizza and sides (dinner) is very good value (especially in Japan), but some of the food was pretty average - the quality and ambience of this branch of Shakeys also isn't as good as others (e.g. the one in Osaka has a much bigger range). The dessert pizzas are really good, and they... More

I said it was terrible and I said we’d come back - and we did. We were hungry - we were in Teramachi. There was Shakey’s. We ate there. The rules are the same. The prices seemed pretty much the same. The pizza was the same and it was not any warmer. You have to like cold pizza to like... More

Ate here years back. Ate here in April 2014 - still as bad. All you can eat - in several iterations. All you can eat - just pizza, and potatoes and some sort of pasta thing, or add more ¥ for drinks, and in the evening you can add more ¥¥ and get salad, I think. All you can eat... More

Came here for lunch - average pizza and pasta, but it's cheap and all you can eat! The best thing was the BBQ potato wedges.
