King Kong Yakiniku Buffet Rawk!

On Christmas night, we had no turkey, but aroylicious yakiniku buffet for dinner instead.


Yakiniku buffet 550 nett eat-till-you-drop!

D and I have been eating healthy for a while, so we intended to stuff ourselves silly on this merry night. 550 baht nett for all-you-can-eat, maximum 2 hours dining at Kiiiing Koooong. Unbeatable price, can’t find in KL for sure.


A massage next door while waiting?


Short wait before 6pm

King Kong is a popular yakiniku buffet restaurant in Bangkok.  D said that it has long queue every day. Expecting a horrendous long queue on Christmas day,  I arrived early to get a table. I arrived at 5.45pm, and waited 25 minutes for our table. I thought it wasn’t too bad, since it was Christmas. But I was early .. the queue of people grew longer and longer after that.

If you are pressed for time, do call ahead, as reservation is allowed.


Meat and seafood menu


Non-meat menu

I thought that the meal is worth every single satang (cent in Thai). The menu has plenty of meat and seafood choices, and the price also includes drink and dessert.


Our first order



All for me, muahaaa


… and more



I lost track of the amount of plates we ordered, but it was indeed satisfying!


Before ….





Lamb and mussel, all for me


That’s how you roll it


Thanks D


What makes a good yakiniku


King Kong’s dipping


A good kimchi can make or break a restaurant!

We had a happy-tummy night! We had to walk around a bit, for the food to digest *chuckle


Do they enforce this?

No wastage please, or pay 10 baht per piece.


Update May 2017:

King Kong

More than 1 year since my last visit, and I finally had my second meal here. Arrived around 6.45pm on a Friday evening, and we were immediately seated. Staff led us to “the other side” of the restaurant, and we found another entrance to King Kong at the back.

New King Kong menu
Beverage menu
Dessert menu

There’s a new menu – more items, and some are chargeable. Not only that, the price has increased to THB 599.20 per pax, including 7% VAT – THB 560 + 7% VAT. I remembered that we paid THB 550 nett previously .. without VAT then? It was a satisfying meal, albeit more expensive.

First order
Only one serving of prawn as we were too lazy to peel ’em
Iced Thai Milk Tea float
Lime sorbet for me
Kori azuki for him

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
