Eating out is a bit of a luxury when you’re a student. So if you are gonna splurge, better make sure you get your money’s worth!

Thanks to their maximum cheapness/minimum fuss factor, ‘all you can eat’ buffets have won the hearts and stomachs of many a student across the UK.

But only a fool would walk through the door without knowing all the tricks to guarantee you’re actually getting a good deal. Go in there unprepared and prepare to walk out there dissatisfied, poorer and just a bit nauseous.

We’ve got a fair bit of experience of all-you-can-eats across the STS team (we like to think of it as a result of our commitment to ‘research’), and now we’re ready to impart that wisdom onto you, lucky readers. Call it your Buffet Bible, if you like!

Top tips on ‘All you can eat’ buffets

1. Do your research

If you live in a big city, chances are you’ll have a few decent buffet restaurants to choose from, and they’ll vary in terms of types of food, price and value for cash.

Decide what’s most important to you and do some research into where you can get the best deal. No one wants to walk out of a restaurant and see the same meal five quid cheaper on the waddle home.

It’s also worth reading the small print about what’s included in the all-you-can-eat deal, and what’s not. You don’t want any nasty surprises on the bill!

2. Stay true to your tastes

So, the Indian buffet place down the road might do an amazing offer on their top-notch food, but remember it’s not an amazing offer if you don’t actually like curry.

Don’t be swayed by the amazing price-to-food volume ratio if you’re not too keen on the cuisine – otherwise you’re just signing up to eat a whole load of food you don’t like.

Where’s the value for money if you end up with your head down the toilet afterwards?
