Hello Csaba,


Thank you very much for your comment and question. "all you can eat restaurant" in Thai is "buffet - bùp-fêe บุฟเฟ่ต์". Hope that’s help. Let me know if you have any future questions. I will be glad to help. We wish you will have a good progress with Thai.


Have a nice day.

Dear Parisa,


Can you tell me how do we can say in thai: "all you can it restaurant". You know, where you pay a fix price, and you can taste, eat everything and so many you want to eat.

Thank you for the answer,

Csaba
