Buffets were something I looked forward to when I was living in the UK. My daily meals consisted of bread and soup, so I would to go for buffets once or twice a month with a few friends. While some buffets were decent (especially when you’re homesick), there were one or two that tasted so crappy, I’d only eat it IF I was starving and the restaurant was the last place open on earth.
One of the buffets I liked going for, was the Pizza Hut lunch buffet, since it’s pretty good value for money. It used to be £5.99 per person, but when I was in London last month, the lunch buffet cost £6.99. Soft drinks cost £1.98 (refillable), so lunch came up to about £9.
There were 6 types of pizzas available – Pepperoni, Vegetarian, Hawaiian, Supreme, Chicken, and Margherita. My favourites were the pepperoni and margherita, and they were snapped up very quickly. Another thing I liked was their bread sticks.
The pizza crust was crispy and light, unlike the bread-y and chewy ones we get in Malaysia. It may not be the best pizza in the world, but it is good enough if you are on a budget and extremely hungry during lunch.
Verdict: For less than £10, it’s pretty good value for money.

they tend to give you not so good ingredients in the pizza hut buffet in uk.. if you have 3 friends with you, you could actually order ala carte and still have the same amount of food.. afterall your stomach has a limit.. haha
For the UK, that's actually very well priced … when I was in the UK, I couldn't even afford such buffets :-)
Saved up every dime for once in a month timsum in Chinatown Manchester or London!
sounds like a good deal which reminded me of Shakey's Pizza buffet a long time back!
ah they should have it in Malaysia soon enough, i miss the Shakey's offer! btw pizza hut is now offering thin crust, wonders does it taste like the same as the one in uk hehe
It does remind me of the Shakey's buffet which I liked for their fried chicken. Is Pizza Hut the only chain that does buffets in UK? What abt Garfunkels, do they also do that?
that's such a good deal. tell me in Malaysia, where can you find a RM10 buffet?!! haha
eiling – Ya lor…we have to pay at least RM25 for a simple buffet!
boo – I'm not sure whether Garfunkels does buffet…didn't notice. Sorry! >.<
Click Click Culinary – I don't think they will have a pizza buffet here. Sure lose money! LOL
babe_kl – I didn't get to try the Shakey's Buffet :(
Julian – Awww…at least you get to eat dim sum once a month! ;)
Tummy Rumble – True also…but I'm very greedy wor. =P
