Not high-end oriental menu, but delicious and inexpensive buffet. Everything was available in small, readily refilled portions, so we trusted it to be fresh (and it was!). Selection of ice cream flavors and beautiful small cakes for dessert.

While most Chinese buffets offer a similar array of choices, China Star does it very well. The restaurant is always clean and neat. The staff is always friendly---the regulars often get hugs from the owners. The price is great, and so is the food!

Passing through the area, we stopped here on a Friday at about 12 noon. They advertise a lunch buffet for Monday, Wednesday and Friday. $7.99 and well worth it. They offer fewer overall selections than some other Chinese buffets, but the food is hot, fresh...More

Like others have said, this business is now called New China Buffet. I really enjoyed all of the items I had (and I am a Crab Rangoon freak!) . All of the items were hot and fresh and very tasty! I went on a Friday...More

They have a good buffet here and keep it fresh and hot...rare for a buffet. Good menu for ordering also,and it always is worth the wait.

I have had much better Chinese food. Its a tiny buffet and they have menus, but the menu is not much. Basically, all they have is the buffet and its not that good.

I would rather have good Chinese food than a mediocre Chinese buffet. This was very good Chinese food served buffet style, and anything but mediocre. This is not the largest buffet, but definitely one of the best I have tried. Everything was fresh and delicious....More
