Fine little buffet restaurant with wide variety. They have Chinese and American style food. Love their cheese wontons especially. Takeout is available. I like eating there because you can return to buffet as many times as you want.

Amazing all the way around, from ceiling to floor and from wall to wall. I am exposing my new family to the wonders that are China Star.

Stopped for a quick lunch at the buffet. Buffet has many selections with many various and different types of fish and seafood selections. Some items cool quickly when it comes off the warmers. But, with so many selections there are things to appeal to everyone's appetite.

This was a terrible experience. The food was not good. The steak tasted like processed meat. The fried rice was good. That's all I enjoyed

Have everyone order buffet. Because , if one person orders off menu they charge you for buffet... Food was Luke warm and crab legs over cooked , they only brought a few out at a time.... Rice stocked right next to ladies room....Think I might get sick from eating here... Food inspectors should check out

It had been a few years since we had been there and we were sorely disappointed. The food was mediocre at best. The crab legs were over cooked and the worst we have ever had. Not sure how they have stayed in business I suppose quantity appeals to some more than quality. Sad as it used to be so much... More
