We frequent China Star several times a year. I don't really have anything bad to say other than I REALLY miss the coconut shrimp. That's the whole reason I used to go there. Now, I eat other stuff, but I'd go more often if they brought back the coconut shrimp. The buffet has a lot of choices and we usually... More

The staff was super nice, but the food was just so-so. There is a fabulous variety, but nothing was really great. Maybe I should've tried the steak where they cook it for you, because the stuff on the buffet didn't impress me.

Very good variety of buffet food. Excellent grill where you pick your fresh meats and vegetables and have them grilled with your choice of sauces. Seafood was excellent. During this time of year, crawfish are being served and I was impressed by the taste and flavor.

the food is very dry and left under the heat lamps for a long time obviously. the bake potato haves were like bricks with a sliver of hardened cheese. Restroom was dirty, when you walk into the mens room the stinch of urine was over powering. I had to wipe my feet on the carpet due to the fact that... More

Great variety of food! Made to order and several different types of food. Dinner was $11 per person which is very reasonable! Would definitely eat here again!

I arrived around 4 PM on a weekday and was seated immediately. I had asked and was assured they offered a senior discount. Service was fast and friendly; my ice tea came right away. I went to the savory part of the buffet twice, dessert table once. I was disappointed in the food - everything seemed to taste the same... More
