Can't really fault the Star Buffet. There are loads of choices for starter, entrees and desserts, everything we had was delicious and it's very reasonably priced.

We have been here many times over the years ad was very pleased with the food and restaurant. My sister in-law met us here this year and figures we'd take her to a good Chinese buffet. NOT. The place just opened for the dinner hour and the food was kind of skimpy. The food that we did chose was hit... More

I didn't notice the seafood when I first looked over the buffet. Once I saw it that was all I pretty much ate. Stuffed clams had just the right amount of seasoning to make them taste fantastic. The shrimp was cooked to perfection. Loved the crab legs but only had a few because they are too messy and take to... More

This buffet is as good as any other mediocre pseudo-Chinese buffet. Relatively clean. Relatively fresh. Relatively tasteless. If you're pulling into this place, or any other Chinese buffet with names like lucky, star, King, super, Hong Kong, P king, etc., you probably shouldn't expect much more than that.

The food and menu is about average as any Chinese buffet. Clean and friendly staff. The restaurant was very busy for a Friday lunch.

We have been coming here for years. Star used to be the best Chinese buffet in the area but it has changed owners several times and has really gone downhill. It appears that they are using the cheapest quality foods that you can buy. We had crab legs and they were very poor quality . After having to ask for... More

This is your average Chinese buffet. The food was good, offered a nice selection during the lunch hour, and was clean.
