61 Boothferry Rd, Hull HU3 6UA
If you want Italian food in large quantity, like most people do, Ciao is the place for you. Their all-you-can-eat menu is like no other, and is cooked to order and served by their friendly waiting service. That’s right, there’s no hot holding buffet service here, just endless fresh Italian food straight from the kitchen.
Ciao boast their Cicchetti, which means small plates and has roots in Venice Bacari. Cicchetti dining is generally done in company and is traditionally consumed at late morning and evening. This traditional dining experience is amazing for a buffet as customers can try more dishes and find new favourites in Italian cuisine.
The ‘traffic light’ ordering system is pretty handy too. Want some food? Use the green disk. Want some privacy? Use the red disk.
1 Bishop Ln, Hull HU1 1PA
Hitchcock’s is an off-the-wall dining experience located in the heart of Hull’s old town. This meat-free buffet is a perfect option for vegetarians, vegans, and meat-eaters alike who want to eat an interesting and expansive range of different cuisines.
As they’re a small business, Hitchcock’s only opens when enough people book, and those who book first get to chose the cuisine for that evening – cool right? And you have an expansive list choose from. With cuisines such as Japanese, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Mexican, Thai, Cajun, Indian, Russian and Middle Eastern being popular choices. However the chefs over at Hitchcock’s are always up for a challenge and have taken on cuisines such as Nepalese, Patagonian, Israeli, Tibetan, German and even English. If you can imagine it, they can probably make it.
