The quick answer is "yes plenty". A lot of people in this forum want to splash out on a meal to remember at a well known 'name' restaurant but it's not obligatory. I'm sure ptegan will be along later with specifics but in the meantime here are the tips - go for a 'menu' which will have a fixed price for either 3 courses or a choice of starter/main or main/desert - you can still find plenty of these for around 20 euros. Order a carafe of wine rather than a bottle which will be more expensive. I knw there is an all you can eat Chinese not far from Les Halles, again I'm sure ptegan can give you the details.

If you haven't got a reply yet it may be due to the fact that there must be over 10,000 "decent but cheap" restaurants in Paris :)

It would be quicker to list the places that you shouldn't go to :)

If you search the forum for 'buffet' or 'all you can eat' you'll find older posts with the answers. Basically there are about 4/5 Asian places and 1 or 2 French places.

If I was going out for a 3-course "decent but cheap " meal, I wouldn't consider spending more than €25-€30 and it's easy to find such places also so I wouldn't worry about going hungry :)

Do a search for AYCE (all you can eat) and you'll find 2 recent threads with some suggestions.

I don't mean to pry, but I get the impression that you're looking for these places due to your budget. If it is the case then I can assure you that it's much better to spend €20 on a 3-course French meal with wine rather than 13 on a Chinese buffet :)

Let me know though if you still want the addresses of the buffet places :)

This question could only have come from someone outside the UK where the idea of a €30-40 meal being cheap is a dream! We eat 3 courses with wine and coffee for around €35 in Paris and not in a cheap restaraunt. Here in the UK (outside London)to get 2 courses no drink no coffee will cost around €35 and the food will not begin to compare - mediocre ingredients served by people who can't tell one vegatable from another!
