Chef's Secret.png Tutorial
My grandfather once told me that having a buffet means you have the ultimate freedom!
Here's a conveyor belt! You'll need it to give everyone good buffet food.
The conveyor belt can work continuously for a maximum of 12 hours, so don't get lazy. Remember to come back and check often!


The Buffet is where Temp Worker Yolky exclusively works. Lucky the Cashier can also work in this area.


In the Update 5.1, a new feature was added to allow you to invite friends to work part-time at the Buffet. Each friend working will increase the buffet's revenue by 10% for 4 hours. Your friends will earn plates as rewards once they finish working.

To invite a player to work in your buffet, you will need to share your link to Facebook, Line, Twitter or directly to someone by clicking the more option (...). Keep in mind that the link will expire after 30 minutes.

Update v8.2.0.g:

  • Yolky has now a passive plate income. Every 4 hours Yolky earns a certain the amount of Plates.pngPlates based on his raise level.
  • Player can still send themselves and Yolky to work at somebody else's restaurant, by clicking their invite link, in order to earn Plates.pngPlates. The bubble speech in the Buffet area shows where the Player/Yolky is working.
  • Player can collect the wages by clicking the clock at the entrance of the Buffet and double the amount of plate by watching an ad.
  • Player earns a fix amount of Plates.png200 every 4 hours. Yolky earns the same amount of Plates.pngPlates based on his raise level.

Get Together[]

Every so often, some customers will want to have dinner parties at the buffet in exchange for Plates.pngPlates. Each party group has a maximum number of four guests that are randomly selected among the options.
