Where does it say All you can eat? And is this like a self serve buffet or line up and order?

Lol I can’t go anyway due to dietary restrictions but of course the only two Metro Vancouver stores would be sold out immediately.

On a regular day, their salmon is surprisingly moist.

Not sure if quality will go down if they need to mass produce for the holiday.

Well, if ANY one should know about what is moist, it HAS to be a person choosing to name themselves slimysnot.

Hopefully, you aren't working in the Ikea kitchen dishing out the salmon...

To keep the numbers of ppl crowding, this should be timed entry and pay on the way out. If you don't cash out in 1 hr, you have to pay more just like a parking meter. LOL.

For a family and $20 per person...go the the IKEA store and buy and prepare and enjoy in a safe place at home.
https://www.ikea.com/ca/en/cat/ikea-food-fb001/

$13 package of meatballs
$10 cold smoked salmon
$15 pkg of 4 salmon fillets
$4 jar of marinated herring
$8 for vegetable medallions
$4 for potato fritters
$10 buy a couple of jars of their sauces.
or steam some potatoes and broccoli/cauliflower/carrots etc

I know you are talking about Ikea's restaurant/food court and not their hot dog/pizza counter, but give me a slice or hot dog from Costco any day over Ikea's!

Hot dog is crap compared to Costco's, will just say that much lol
Had both in the same week earlier this month. Costco first.

This is a buffet, the regular exit-door offering is irrelevant. The food courts have an entirely different menu lol

I'm sure Ikea will follow all safety protocols (limited capacity, masks when not eating, distancing, etc) so it's likely no less risky than going to Costco on the weekend.

I'd love to go but I'll pass because the crowds will probably be huge, and no not because I'm worried about the virus, but because crowds will be huge and it won't be enjoyable. Upvoted still. Good deal if you have the patience.
