Good

A pretty good Chinese buffet. I like that they have freshly made sushi on a regular basis. Definitely worth the price to stop in.

As Buffets go, East Dynasty is a very good restaurant to eat at. It has a large variety of food that is kept fresh constantly. The fish selection is great as well as it great selection of Chinese fare. If you have time to spend sampling a little bit of everything you will find that it is a wonderful selection... More

I can't say this place has ever been a favorite of mine. Every time I eat there, I say "never again". Typical food. Frozen and thawed, canned, commercial stuff that sits in a steam table. I often wonder what's in most of it. Crab legs must be boiled for hours. Never tastey and always mushy. You can get filled up... More

This is a good place to go if you're hungry and like huge portions. Though definitely not a gourmet restaurant, the food is a good value. Best to go there on a busy night, as the food items are fresher. Lots of choices, my favorites are the salmon and the fried calamari. The sushi is quite good as well. This... More

It's understandable that a place so large that serves so many people wouldn't be the greatest place to have lunch. But my visit today sort of clinched the idea that "All You Can Eat" restaurants aren't the value you might think. I've been to East Dynasty before, and the issues I had at those previous visits were still evident today.... More

The food is alright. However the cleanliness of the place in general is not. Unfortunately, I have whitenessed multiple nasty sightings. Adults and children with dirty hands using untencils to scoop food. Sneezing on food. Nasty things. The bathroom was poorly kept. Disgusting. Toilets had matter in them, overflowing toilet water and an abundance of toilet paper all over. It... More

Have had lunch here several times over the years, always seems to be a decent choice with a variety of foods, Our latest stop there was a good experience, the shrimp and calamari were delicious. Had some nice hot wonton soup and nice hot chicken wings. Like any buffet, things that should be hot get cold after a bit, but... More

I ate lunch here on a recent Monday. The restaurant opens at 11, I arrived about 11:30. The buffet is large with a lot of options. Although it is a Chinese buffet, easily 60% of the food is standard American fare, ie: pizza, mac and cheese, etc. The Chinese food was bland. With only two seafood choices, fried squid and... More

We heard so much by the advertisment on TV and decided to go. I'll get to the point. The food was awlful and old. The imitation crab was chalky consistency, and I had to spit it out. The seafood salad was chalk like texture with a zing to the mayonaise. I spit that out. I told my husband not to... More

Clean. Great variety of Chinese and American options of food available. Fast seating. Reasonable cost per person considering all of the choices. Good service. Nice staff. Can get pricey with more than two people. We drive the hour and eat there as a family treat.
