“Very good for buffet food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2014

I'm not sure why there are so many good Asian food restaurants in the Binghamton area but I'm going to give my take...Binghamton University is here and has a large Asian population. They seem to come from NYC area. There are no less than 3-4 very good buffets here. Food choices run the usual and included crab legs at dinner. Good Sushi Bar. There is really too much to write…go try it. I think you will like it.

“This isn't a 5 star place, It's a BUFFET.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

.
This place is located a short distance from the college. Went there on a Sunday and it was great. A ton of students and locals were in this place. The food was good. Service was good. All around i'd go back and do it again.

“Mass quantity, low quality”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

The restaurant is quite large with numerous buffets. At first glance, it's intriguing but once you delve in deeper you begin to notice how messy the place is. Floors aren't swept after diners, storage closets have mass amounts of soda boxes/food waste/trash, buffet counters aren't wiped down after spills. Food is everywhere - spilled on the counters, floor, etc. I understand it was a busy Saturday night but there were areas open to view by diners that should not have been so filthy. This makes me question how clean the kitchen is. The food did not lack in quantity but quality is another story. Your typical Chinese buffet + the mess of an out of control school cafeteria.

“A fun version of Christmas story!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

We had Christmas dinner here (along with hundreds of others -- the place was packed). Tons of different food items to choose from -- beef, chicken, pork, squid, sushi, vegetarian, and traditional dinner offerings like turkey and stuffing. Variety of soups and a humungous salad bar. They even had a chocolate fountain for you to dip fresh fruit in! If you can't find something to like on their buffet, then it doesn't exist!

“Food glorious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

We were looking hard for nice Asian food and the front desk staff at our hotel told us about Buffet Star. He said it was about 15min drive. The drive was totally worth it. The food variety is huge! Food is good and fresh. There were just so many dishes/soups and most were authentic. If you want to have a nice and hearty meal (instead of the normal fast food) where you can sit and chat, this is the place to go.
