Nomihoudai Japanese Cheat Sheet: With Audio
Nomihoudai (飲み放題) is “All-You-Can-Drink” and tabehoudai (食べ放題) is “All-You-Can-Eat”. In many Japanese cities both are popular, especially in Tokyo. Essentially, you pay a flat price for a specified amount of time that drinking and eating are unlimited; some tabehoudai has no time limit. Most establishments that have nomihoudai are obviously a little livelier than your average place, which is super fun.
