ピザ食べ放題

18 Mar

If you’re in Japan and you want to eat pizza, have you ever gone to 「シェーキーズ」 (“Shakey’s“) restaurant?

In Japan, especially Tokyo, there are plenty of places to get pizza…but in Japan, pizza is quite expensive usually.
But at Shakey’s, they have a pretty good deal.

If you go to Shakey’s in Japan, you can order the All-You-Can-Eat Lunch, Dinner, or Holiday plan (depending on what day-of-the-week and what time of day it is.)

Lunch on a weekday is the cheapest, and dinner on a holiday or weekend is the most expensive.
But it’s still a good deal. The prices range from ¥850 to ¥1,180 and you can eat all of the thin-crust pizza (all pizza toppings are “chef’s choice”), salad, spaghetti, spicy fries, and beef curry that you want.

I haven’t eaten at Shakey’s in about five years, so I had forgotten about their All-You-Can-Eat deals…but I saw an ad for it today and I was surprised that they still have this deal—and for almost the same price.

In Tokyo, there are Shakey’s restaurants in 渋谷 (Shibuya), 原宿 (Harajuku), 表参道 (Omotesando), 新宿 (Shinjuku), 高田馬場 (Takadanobaba), 世田谷 (Setagaya), and 池袋 (Ikebukuro).

Are there Shakey’s Pizza restaurants where you live? Have you ever eaten there? Does Shakey’s have a similar All-You-Can-Eat campaign in your country?
Do you like Shakey’s food?

    I’ve been to Shakey’s in Shibuya with a pretty decent sized group of friends and we managed to all stuff our faces for a reasonable total bill (I forget the exact amount now but it wasn’t much and we did waribiki and it wasn’t bad). The pizza was decent but not as good as some of the more “expensive” varieties available. I LOVE Japanese pizza though – Curry pizza esspecially.. can’t get that back in Canada anywhere

      When I was young(er), I also went to Shakey’s with a large group of friends.
      It’s a good deal…and, Domino’s is better pizza but Shakey’s certainly isn’t bad.

      I haven’t been there in years, though…that’s why I was surprised to see an ad that shows their prices haven’t gone up that much after all these years!

    As a little kid in the 70s, we used to go to Shakey’s a lot. They were always showing classic cartoons on the big screen.

      I never saw a Shakey’s in America.

      Do they have the “All-You-Can-Eat” deal there?

    I had been to Shakey’s in Kobe when I was a students. So, it was about 20 years ago, and the shop had been closed long time ago. I did loved to go there because it was quite reasonable price for students, and I could keep eating then! however, now I don’t care “all you can eat” restaurant since I can’t eat so much. How about you?
    Can you eat as much as before?

      No, I don’t need 食べ放題 (All-You-Can-Eat) anymore either.

      But my kids like it.

    Shakey’s……another favorite! The Shinjuku location is the same one I ate at as a kid 30 years ago, and was the first place I went when I got back to Japan!!!! I knew it was a U.S. chain, but never went to one in the States.

    I went to the Omotesando location about 2 weeks ago, around 3:00p, and they didn’t have a buffet, only menu options. Don’t know what was up with that.

    The pizza is yummy, but *very* Japanese, with toppings like corn, tuna, mayonaisse, etc.

      >I went to the Omotesando location about 2 weeks ago, around 3:00p, and they didn’t have a buffet, only menu options.

      It must have been a week-day.
      On weekends and holidays, they have the buffet from about 10:30AM until about 9:00PM…but on weekdays, the lunch buffet ends at 3:00PM and the dinner one doesn’t start until 5:00PM.
      You just missed the lunch.

      Also, in addition to the locations I wrote in the post above, there’s a Shakey’s at the LaLaPort shopping mall in Funabashi, Chiba.

    I’ve never been to a Shakeys before but have to check out the all you can eat buffet ^^

    How do the Pizzas compare to say Dominoes or Pizza la?

      Domino’s and Pizza La are both better than Shakey’s.

      But, that said, Shakey’s has good pizza…and much more affordable than those other two chains.

      At Shakey’s “All You Can Eat” deal, you can’t order the toppings you want…the chefs make various pizzas and put them on the buffet counter for everyone to choose from.

    I’ve never heard of Shakey’s as well
    But when I studied in Taiwan, the Pizza Hut there had All You Can Eat package. Aside from all the pizzas, there were salad, chicken wing, pasta. I couldn’t recall anything else (it’s been 10 years) :):)
    People who usually eat the all you can eat package will skip the crust part (side of the pizza). It’s quite a waste ya..but no choice..in order to eat more…you have to do that….

      Yes, that’s a waste.
      I guess it’s good that Shakey’s has thin crust pizza only.

    Really? It’s a U.S. chain.

    >but it sounds similar to a chain in the States called CiCi’s.

    I don’t know that place.

    Do you eat pizza often?

    I like pizza but I don’t eat it so often. Occasionally. Because it’s expensive in Japan.

    I’ve never heard of Shakey’s but it sounds similar to a chain in the States called CiCi’s. Their price has stayed low and about the same for years as well.

    In the last town I lived in, there was one not too far away from us. The one here in Lansing Michigan is all the way across town (the “bad” part of town), so I haven’t been there in about 3 years, but I do miss it.

    They also have salads and pasta along with desserts (the best part!): brownies, cinnamon bread sticks and a really good apple crumb “pizza”.

    You can also order individual pizzas for take out (I don’t think they deliver) but if you’re going there anyway, you might as well sit down and gorge yourself on the whole menu.

    I love their BBQ pizza the best.
