DON-DON, Yakiniku Buffet

I went to a new yakiniku restaurant DON-DON over the weekend.  It is a Yakiniku buffet with salad bar and dessert bar, about a 10 min drive
from the East gate. It is housed in a 2-story structure with the restaurant on top and parking on the bottom.  The buffet comes with 85 items to order from plus the salad bar, dessert bar and cotton candy- all you can eat for 100 minutes.  It costs ¥2480 plus tax.  Grade schoolers cost ¥1240 plus tax while kids under 6 eat for free!  There is also a menu to order from where items are ¥1980 plus tax, but this doesn’t include the salad-dessert bars.  The drinks are a separate charge, all you can drink soda is ¥200yen/person.  All you can drink alcohol is ¥1200/person.  All parties at the same table have to order the same menu and all additional orders are placed via a tablet on the table. I think the tablet menu came with pictures (my friend did all the ordering). The first plate of meats comes with the initial order and then you can start ordering from the tablet.  It is that is non-smoking in the general restaurant.  There is an enclosed room for smokers.  Open M-F 1700-2400, weekends and holidays 1130-2400.  GPS 35.750761, 139.390193.
DIRECTIONS:  Exit left out the East gate.  Turn right at the Seven-Eleven.  Turn left on Route 59 towards the AEON mall. Turn right on Route 5.  It will be on the left side across from a Seven-Eleven past the “Sanbonenoki” light. – Hiromi Arita, July 2013.

  1. Please be aware. They do not take credit cards. Took my parents out, and had to run across the street to the 711 to get yen to pay!

  2. We tried this place tonight & enjoyed it a lot! Initial review was accurate & helpful.
    The meat was good, salad/desserts were not a huge choice but tasty. Service was great-those waiters are literally running around the restaurant.
    Unlike some all you can eat yakiniku places, you can’t go up to a buffet & choose the meats, you order them on a touch screen. No english on it, but lots of pictures.
    They did offer a small explanation card in English, which described the prices & procedures.
