The idea of large numbers of people taking food from a common table was known to Medieval and ancient civilizations. The modern buffet first appeared in France in the 17th century and was later popularized in Europe by Napoleon Bonaparte, who preferred less formal receptions. The concept of the buffet came to the U.S. with British settlers and the first American all-you-can-eat Halal catering Singapore restaurant was opened in Minneapolis in the 1930s.

Nowadays, all-you-can-eat buffet restaurants are very popular in the U.S. At first, all-you-can-eat buffet restaurants offered cheap food for little money. Now you can also find upscale buffets.

All-you-can-eat buffet restaurants are the perfect choice for hearty eaters and people who like to try different dishes (or people who just feel exceptionally hungry from time to time). That is why these restaurants are perfect for a quick lunch or dinner.
