The first time we dined here the service and the food had snap. Now, there is a definite decline in service as well as quality of the food. Front desk was asleep and the wait staff were 'sliding around' with a down at the heels look and approach. Sorry about this!

This is our third time to eat here. Quality of food has declined and prices crept up. Still have a variety of foods, but lacks the freshness and good taste like they had when first opened. If quantity over quality is your main concern, this is the place for you.

The food at China star is the best. The ribs are great!!!! The food is always stocked, and most the time fresh. The grill is also nice. Plenty of choices

While we usually don't have to wait the Sunday lunch crowd was unusually large. But the decor and the freshness as well as the large selection of food is unparalleled in my book. Many non-typical offerings here deserve your visit!

My friend and I who are senior citizens stopped at China Star on Dalen Rd in Beaumont Texas to have some lunch. The person that seated us placed us in the most unlighted seats in the entire restaurant although they were many well lit seats available. Never the less we had lunch from an not so good buffet, gathered up... More

My party of two was quickly and warmly welcomed at the door, and promptly seated. Our drink orders were taken before we sat down, and the waiter was very attentive and helpful. The typical selection of food was decent, nothing to write home about (TSO, Orange, Etc.) The seafood (Crabs, Shrimp) were not very good at all, and were poorly... More

In mid-October, China Star reopened. All of the staff is new, except the new owner brought back the original chef, "Chef Min", who was there when the restaurant first opened. The improvements in the food offerings are substantial; the sushi bar is much improved, and there is a wealth of seafood on the buffet. Oysters on the half-shell, fried oysters,... More

They charged my 1 year old daughter! Can you believe this? In addition to a 2.5 yo... Besides that, food was rather regular for "Chinese buffets", hibachi was awful - stay away! Their sushi is good though. This is why they get a start from me. Overall, worth a single trip.

When they first opened earlier this year (2013) they were great. By the early summer the Houston based group that operated it sold it. Much of the kitchen staff left. What used to be a 40 minute wait for dinner in a crowded restaurant evolved into an almost empty building as the quality and selection of food greatly diminished under... More
