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.

You can see that at one point someone cared and had a vision for this location. Now it is just sort of sad, dirty, and run down. As for the food, I am the type of person that likes to get a bite of each thing and try it. In the end I found three things that I actually like... More

This buffet is the only buffet I ever frequent. Mostly because I have no self control when someone hangs the feed bag! With that said enter Buffet Palace. Built in the former Westgate Theatre the place is pretty darn spacious and they need that because there is a LOT of linear feet in this conga line of a buffet. As... More
