I was amazed of the vast array of entree selections at this restaurant. There is a sushi bar section and the staff provided to service the entree stations ensured that the pans of food were timely replaced when the pans were close to empty. Wait staff was prompt in clearing empty plates and keeping the water glasses filled. All the... More

The variety and quality of Asian food selections are consistently excellent. My personal favorites are the orange shrimp, several of the sushi rolls and their outstanding crab salad. Yes, the desert choices are plentiful as well. The cost may be a little more expensive than other Asian buffets in town, but it's worth the extra couple of bucks.

I stop in here from time to time when in South Austin. I have found that the quality has been consistent on each visit. There are a large variety of choices from different Asian cuisines. Salads seem to be better than most places. There is also a section of dessert choices.

Excellent buffet of Korean, Japanese and Chinese foods! I would have given 3.5 points if I had the option. I have been here before once and the way I remembered, the sushi was pretty good... Well, the sushi was a big disappointment because most of them were rolls of different kinds and some of them masqueraded as sushi but since... More

This place has a large selection of all your favorite Chinese foods. Not only is the selection nice but the taste is really good for a Chinese buffet place. The variety of sushi is the largest I have seen at any buffet place and also taste really good. I have been here several times and I have never been disappointed.... More

We tried the Buffet Palace for lunch and found it to be pretty good. They had an wonderful selection of Sushi and other foods. Had tofu and many soups and noodle selections. It certainly is not your average Chinese Buffet. And at just $8.99 for lunch, it cannot be beat!

This place serves a mix of Japanese, Korean and Chinese food. The selection was decent. There were more Japanese sushi and Korean style food than Chinese food. All seem to be the typical Americanized Asian food… decent taste and good value.

This is a big big big buffet in S Austin Texas. Went here for a treat lunch for my team. They recommended it. The soups are hot and some of the food is too. Potstickers, green beans and tempura veggies were actually cold, not even room temlerature.
