Excellent buffet of Korean, Japanese and Chinese foods!

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.

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
