Always on the lookout for good buffets in Tokyo, I came across Bitter Sweets Buffet on the 8th floor of the Lumine Est building next to Shinjuku station. Bitter Sweets Buffet is a fantastic buffet, half of which is mostly Italian food such as pizzas and pastas together with spring rolls, cous cous and mini hamburgers thrown in! The other half consists of all sorts of delectable cakes, tarts, pies, mousses as well as crepes and waffles made to order!
The heart shaped ravioli is delightfully cute and the green tea cheesecake is a must try if you go here. Queues are known to stretch along the entire corridor outside the restaurant so if you don’t want to wait, arriving early is recommended.
Bitter Sweets Buffet lunch is 1800 yen for 90 minutes and 2500 yen for 2 hours during dinner time. They have an early bird special if you arrive between 5 and 6pm at 2000 yen for 90 minutes. Also for only an extra 1200 yen you can drink as much alcohol as you want! Bitter Sweets Buffet is open every day from 11am till 11pm.
