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.

I'm finally writing a review after coming here about 10 times over the past 2 years. My wife and I absolutely love this place! They have several options for meat eaters like myself and veggie lovers like my wife. Always great service too. Give them a try. You won't be disappointed :)

This is the best of all oriental buffets we have ever been to. The Buffet Palace has a wide variety of oriental and some traditional American as well. Many of the hot dishes and salads have a definite Korean flavor of fish sauce and sesame oil. We were there during lunch and was well pleased with the first class freshness... More

First, let me say that we visited the killeen restaurant. Pros: friendly, bright, clean, buffet. Cons: food was cold. 1/2 the food I tasted was gross. I literally only liked the salmon and peach cobbler. Even the rice and sesame chicken were gross. Personally, I wouldn't waste my time and money.

I've done a good bit of travels. I do like a good buffett for the speed, variety, hit it and get it and go! We happened on this one quite by accident-were passing by, got hungry, and popped in. Glad we did. Now several visits later, we still enjoy. Not your typical Asian buffett. It has a variety of dishes.... More

When this place first opened, it was the shizzzzzzzzz. It aint no more. Don't misunderstand me. This place is good, but you need to know when to come and realize that it is average at best. Get there just as lunch or dinner is starting up so the food is fresh and hot. Good selection of soups, salads, sushi rolls,... More

This is more of a korean and sushi buffet than a typical chinese buffet. I am not a big fan of both sushi and korean. If you like any of these i would encourage you to visit the place. The place was fairly clean and whatever they have tasted good.
