I am from the Abilene area and it's a phenomena that people think this is the best Chinese food ever. This was the first Chinese food buffet in Abilene and was opened when Chinese food buffet style was a fairly new thought in this area because there were no other Chinese food buffet until Texas China buffet opened in the...

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. My children love coming to this restaurant because they are treated like little people. The service is always good and the servers friendly. This place usually stays... More

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.

We ate here after the lunch rush and both became ill, my wife is still recovering 3 days later. The food was good, not the best, but I believe they might want to watch how they take care of their food. Something wasn't right.

We had heard good raves on this restaurant and we were not disappointed. There was an incredible variety and EVERYTHING tasted great. We have had experience with other Chinese buffets, so this was a nice surprize in quality. The other buffets almost made us give up on them, but this experience restored our desire for Chinese food. The waitress was... More
