Finally!! Sushi Buffet in Gili Gulu…. or is it Gulu Gili?? Guli Gilu?!?!

Ahhh… Gili Gulu Japanese Restaurant, located near Aji Ajo Malaysian Cuisine Restaurant (which is our next target), boasts an offer of an complete set of Sushi Buffet for just 13 pounds. They were smart: they have applied some rules so that people could not take advantage of the buffet by eating just the valuable food. Not only that, unlike Malaysian style buffet, these were all Sushi (as in, not Sashimi) which means that it comes with rice, and noodles too. (This means that their target is to make us feel full eating less). No cawanmushi, no other misc. Jap food. No nothing. Thus, the five of us (me, Hing, Goldman and his 2 other friends, Wing and Queenie) journey into the world of money-making, greedy fools.

That would have tricked/stopped/deter us from making them lose money, but unfortunately for them, we have :-
   1. Only 1 girl ( though I must mention, she can eat a lot more than she looks!) among 4 guys,
   2. 4 among them who have experience getting the best out of a buffet in London,
   3. 5 of which have an appetite of a huge-sized boar,
   4. 1 which is able to consume a certain sweet and salty sea-weed dish that tastes like piss,
   5. 1 which is able to consume 5 bowls of Cold Soba Noodles ( though he only ate 2 ), and finally,
   6. 1 of which has a stomach capacity of 200% ( he ate up to 160% )

These were the rules for the buffet ::-
   1. Penalty, for every uneaten food: 1 pound per sushi rice, 2.50 per bowl of noodles. (effectively avoiding food wastage)
   2. Time limit: We reserve the right to reserve the table after 70 minutes from your arrival. (As opposed to unlimited hours elsewhere)

Hence, we planned to disrupt their business for all of their unfairness ๐Ÿ˜‰
How? By :::-
1. Finishing 108 plates of assorted sushi (mainly salmon, squid, eel and…. beans?)
2. Finishing 1 very hard to eat, very horrible tasting, very disgusting looking sweet and salty seaweed!!
3. Finishing 4 bowls of noodles

Assuming one plate of sushi cost 2 pounds (minimum) and a bowl of noodle cost 3.50 pounds, we have :-
                  2.00 * 109 + 3.50 * 4   =   232 GBP !!
And we spend 13 pounds each, which after drinks charge and gratitude(!?!??!?) tax,
we paid a total of                               75.67 GBP

Thus we conclude our chapter leaving Gili Gulu earning a large sum of -156.33 GBP and us, well, we went back home with a heavy stomache, satisfied feelings and looking forward to another “revenge” session with Gili Gulu, this time with target of 125 sushi dishes and more than 5 bowls of noodles, right, guys? ๐Ÿ˜€

  • I love Gili Guli and stumbled across your site when I was looking for their website – which unfortunately doesn’t exist. Thanks for sharing your story, it really made me laugh. ๐Ÿ˜†

    You might want to check out this Chinese Restaurant. It’s buffet as well but compared to others of that kind you order off a menu so the dishes are prepared fresh and you get a huge variety. Portions are smaller than in other Chinese Restaurants but you can work your way through about 30 different dishes (for the greedy monster in all of us :twisted:). I haven’t been there for a while but last time we went there wasn’t a time limit but they are keen on not having any food wasted so there might be a penalty for uneaten food now. Here are the details:

    Ty Pi Dong Restaurant
    29 Goodge Street, LONDON, W1P 1FD
    Tel. 0871 332 0276

    Check it out. ๐Ÿ˜‰
