Although some people see this as a challenge and try to eat as much food as they can for the price they have paid, many people find the pricing system is still fair when you eat the same amount of food that you would at any other restaurant.
The ability to view the food choices available and immediately select what you would like to eat is the essential feature of a buffet restaurant. Deciding how much food you take with you on each trip to the buffet seems to be a technique that few can master. As the plates stack up and your stomach expands, realising you forgot to leave room for dessert can bring your night crashing down.
