Birthdays mean turning a year older and wiser. And the chance to claim some birthday freebies!

From free buffets to ice cream, here are some places where you can eat as much as you want without paying a single cent, though you may have to bring along a few companions to dine with you to enjoy some of them.


Seoul Garden


Enjoy the buffet spread at Seoul Garden for free on your birth date or birthday month at Seoul Garden. We've checked, and yes, it's not a one-time only offer. If you wish, you can head down to Seoul Garden for your free buffet every day during your birthday month.

The only catch is that you have to dine with three other friends to be entitled to the free buffet. Birthday reservations must also be made at least one day in advance, via the website or the phone. This promotion is exclusive to Seoul Garden's Marina Square outlet.

6 Raffles Blvd, #03-210, Marina Square, Singapore 039594


If you can't make it to the Marina Square outlet, Seoul Garden will gift you with a birthday surprise gift — a limited edition goodie bag and a complimentary brownie cake — when you dine with at least two paying friends at any outlet. Click here for more information. 

Ikkousha Hakata Ramen


Free gyozas anyone? 

Ikkousha Hakata Ramen is offering customers as many free gyozas as their age. If you are turning 60, you'll get to feast on 60 pieces of free gyoza.

The offer is for J Passport members — membership is free — who order at least four bowls of ramen. 

The promotion can only be used a day before or after your birthday or on the exact day. It is applicable for dine-in or takeaway orders at all outlets, as well as delivery. Click here for the redemption details.

You'll have to sign up for a free membership here to enjoy the promotion and for online delivery or pick-up, order through the website and use the code "BDAY" to redeem your free lobster.
