We had watched their commercials for years, and had hoped that if their volume was high, the chances were also high that everything would at least be fresh. As it turned out, I don't know whether the selections were fresh, but the quality was low-- on every item that we tasted. There are many choices available. but all that we... More

Selection was pretty good but food was luke warm. Service was very poor. Waiter disappeared after bringing drinks. No refills, no removal of dirty dishes.

I like asian food and i look for places that are a cut above. Buffet Palace is one of those restaurants that caught my attention. I had flavors not normally found in regular asian restaurants. I found that refreshing instead of the same old flavors. The food was very good and it didnt bore me. The wait staff was very... More

First visit to Buffet Palace with friends on a Friday evening. The food items were fresh, well prepared and made in small batches (so it's not setting under a heat lamp and getting stale). The service was very good and the buffet stations (salad, sushi, chinese, pan-asian style dishes- just to name a few) were tasty with a multitude of... More

Okay, I admit that I'm a buffet junkie. After having plowed my way through Chinese buffets that offer greasy, bland food that tastes the same from one dish to another, it's a pleasure to find Buffet Palace. They have a decent selection of sushi; I've tried most of the rolls and they're very good and this coming from one who... More

My wife and I had just arrived back in Austin from a trip to her home state of Vermont and needed some quality food that didn't require prep on our part. Buffet Palace has always been exceptional for us, both in variety of choices and quality of food and our return meal back in Texas was one of the best... More

Buffet Palace is an asian food smorgasbord! Anything and everything you could imagine in a buffet! Go hungry :) Highly recommend if you are in South Austin.

We went on a Friday for lunch. Brilliant selection of sushi, salads, soups and 'regular' dishes. Our very picky kids were really excited by the selection and each ate two plates. $35 for all of us.

There is a good selection but food was just okay. Most Chinese buffets are not very good at all but this one is better than most and price is not awful. Service was not good. They had no idea whose table was whose and the girl that was suppose to have my table never served us anything but the check.... More
