food is ok.

Is it the best buffet? No. But a few items are pretty good. The coconut shrimp is pretty good if you get it when it first comes out. There are times when things have been sitting for a while and you can tell b/c it is dried out. It is your typical buffet. Nothing too spectacular but the restaurant... read more

I've been to enough buffets to make a reasonably informed opinion of East Dynasty and it is not positive. Much of the food was lukewarm if not room temperature-a decided food safety issue. Facilities were dirty, particularly the restroom. The actual taste and palatability of the food, even when compared to other Chinese buffets, was poor. East Dynasty is not... More

Dried out sesame chicken and coconut chicken. Overcooked broccoli and poor selections of fruits and desserts. Do not recommend.

A vast selection of Chinese-American cuisine sprinkled with a tast of America. It's a great place to take the family or bring business guest to eat.

My family loves to eat here. They have great food and the price is good as well! THe place is usually very clean. The bathrooms are a little strange with the black walls but over all we love it!

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
