We arrived with children and grandchildren and were seated promptly including the highchair. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. The steam table was well stocked (except they had run out of white rice). We've been here before and one of the things we like it that they are consistently good -- and they have a good variety. Their fried shrimp,... More

I have been periodically visiting East Buffet for years. I can always go back for seconds... and sometimes thirds if there are crab legs ;)

When we travel we seek out Oriental Buffets because of the fresh vegetables and variety. This was convenient to the movie we were going to see. It was truly horrible. The main dishes were tasteless glop. The dessert pastiries were so old they were rubbery.

The health food ratings for this place are all over the map. The last time we went there I did not see the score, so I asked. The Korean woman acted like she did not understand me, so I asked 2 more times, and got no answer as she seated us. The food was the same, some stuff really good,... More

So disappointed! Had not eaten Chinese in quite a while and wanted Sesame Chicken. Were staying in a nearby hotel and decided to eat this buffet. It was probably the worse Chinese I have ever eaten. All the food on the buffet tasted the same. This was a Friday night; yet the food was not kept updated. The chips along... More

This is by far the best Chinese buffett style restaurant I've ever ate at. I've eaten here several times and the quality has been the same each time.

average buffet, nothing to brag about. Seems to be a little overpriced for those who can't find a lot of eat off the buffet

I've always been leery of sushi on a buffet but we have eaten here for probably 4-5 years and have NEVER gotten ill and ALWAYS have sushi. Buffet has a nice selection though desserts could be better.
