I have been to China Star multiple times. Lunch and Supper both. Dined in and taken out. Always consistently good, way above average for Chinese buffet. If you want a fancy (read - expensive with ambiance), this isn't the place for you. However, if you want some of the best Chinese buffet I have had in 50 years of eating... More

Best, and now only Chinese buffet in town. Always voted #1 or runner-up in Reader's Choice from our local paper. The food is excellent and there is a good variety on the buffet.

I wasn't feeling so good, but I wanted some soup. Their egg drop soup is hot, good for the unsettled stomach. The next few times I was feeling better and had a variety of their dishes. It is a good variety and fairly decent service when it is busy. The servers I have had are always friendly and helpful.

Probably the best Chinese buffet I have had. A great selection of delicious items. I have eaten here many times growing up and eat here almost every time I go to Abilene. I would highly recommend it if you are thinking Chinese.

the place has been here forever, due mainly to the fact that it's consistent. the food has always been not to good, but not to bad. Best selling point is alot of food for the money.

I've been to so many buffets, they all seem the same. All good, none great. China star has a very good variety of entrées but very limited sushi. Service is always good. You should give them a try.
