2. Ahimsa Buffet
Ahimsa Buffet has multiple locations around town, and thankfully it has one in MK as well. While Ahimsa offers a fascinating array of Chinese dishes, fried dim sum, salads, and vegan cakes, our favourite item remains to be its famous savoury turnip cake. The all-you-can-eat buffets cost only around $100 for lunch and dinner too. What a great deal!
