We last came here two years ago and while the food was okay, we were disappointed with the overall feel of the place. We felt we were being hurried along in an attempt to free up our table for the next group. Went back tonight and there's now a much more relaxed atmosphere. Very helpful staff and no sense of...

If you enjoy Asian food then China Bar is the place to visit. For around $67 you can eat to your hearts delight with this 'all you can eat buffet'. There is an area where one can savour oysters au naturel, crab or other delicacies of the sea. For those who prefer their food cooked you can put together your... More

Having been to the China Bar outlets in Box Hill and Glen Waverley, I wasn't excited going to their signature restaurant which is the only one that offered buffet/ 'all you can eat' meals. We went here for a Friday lunch and the place was huge with lots of Asian diners (a good sign). There were several choices, from actually... More

I took my husband here for dinner for his birthday and he was very impressed. The restaurant is large but tastefully decorated so doesn't feel like a barn. The buffet is spread out in several zones so there was plenty of room to move around and the food was easily accessed. The only slight delay was at the fresh seafood... More

My family and I recently went here and I was amazed at the amount of food there. There was so much different food there although I've been told if you like seafood you're better off going for dinner as there is a lot more there at dinner time. It is a bit more expensive at dinner time but there is... More

If you like unlimited seafood, including salmon, prawns, mussels, oysters, fish or sushi or Peking duck, dumplings, yum cha, stir fry, noodles, then this is the place for you! There's also a BBQ outside with squid, and other stuff I didn't even get to try. Not to mention the delightful bite sized desserts - you can have half a dozen... More

I would say this is the best Chinese buffet in eastern suburbs. they provide Hongkong style foods, including YunCha. They also can cook for u with fresh materials and you can pick by yourself. the price is higher than Hollywood buffet, but you will get better foods here
