Dining out in japan can be quite expensive but this place offers all you can eat for just over a 1000 yen. The menu consists of about 6 or 7 different pizzas, spaghetti with meat balls a salad bar and strangely curry and rice. They also have drinks packages for those that want them

My wife and I were getting tired of Japanese food after 2 weeks here and fancied something different. We didn't expect much but were pleasantly surprised. Pizza was ok, not gourmet but good enough for a casual dinner. Some were hotter than others but if you picked the freshest they were fine. Wine and beer were totally fine. We made... More

The kids love it and for adults ok. Obviously popular with young people as there were groups there when we visited. they have desert and other kinds of pizza. They also have a small salad bar. convenient when you are out and about and reasonably priced. not the best pizza in the world but not the worst we have had... More

1020 Yen for all you can eat pizza and sides (dinner) is very good value (especially in Japan), but some of the food was pretty average - the quality and ambience of this branch of Shakeys also isn't as good as others (e.g. the one in Osaka has a much bigger range). The dessert pizzas are really good, and they... More

I said it was terrible and I said we’d come back - and we did. We were hungry - we were in Teramachi. There was Shakey’s. We ate there. The rules are the same. The prices seemed pretty much the same. The pizza was the same and it was not any warmer. You have to like cold pizza to like... More

Ate here years back. Ate here in April 2014 - still as bad. All you can eat - in several iterations. All you can eat - just pizza, and potatoes and some sort of pasta thing, or add more ¥ for drinks, and in the evening you can add more ¥¥ and get salad, I think. All you can eat... More

Came here for lunch - average pizza and pasta, but it's cheap and all you can eat! The best thing was the BBQ potato wedges.

Cheap pizza. Unlimited beer. Unlimited curry. Unlimited pasta. Sounds great, right ? Not so fast. The food was awful. Definitely the worst place we've eaten in Japan.

This was my first time in Kyoto and when me and my girlfriend passed by Shakeys Pizza we were really excited to try the dinner buffet it had offered on the following night as the pizzas on the poster looked absolutely scrumptous. We spent the entire day sightseeing and were literally salivating thinking about the greasy slices of pizza that... More

I've eaten at Shakey's with my friends during my stay in Kyoto, and I have to say, it's amazing! I'm Italian, and yet that was one of the best pizzas I've evere eaten. There's a great variety of flavours, even sweet ones, also accompanied by chips, and rice and curry. The "all you can eat" it's really a fabulous idea!... More
