“Best Chinese Buffett in Hershey!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I gave 5 stars for the variety, quality, cleanliness and service. Yes, service! Although it is a typical Chinese Buffett the owners are personally and constantly checking if you are ok, if you need anything fresh or special. They are always with a smile in their faces. They additionally offer a variety of sushis that are included in the buffet. The food is delicious, prepared in small batches so they are always fresh, light (they barely use any oil) and of course MSG free. The best surprise come at the end with the bill: it is so far one of the cheapest Chinese Buffetts in the area. I highly recommend!

“Appearances are Deceiving, Food is Not”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

We chanced upon this place on our way to Hershey's Chocolate World, and, since it was pretty late, we decided to give this place a try. As we walked in, our expectations for this place lowered rapidly as the atmosphere was dark, there were few people around, and the staff consisted of about two people. As we began to dine on the food, however, our perception of the restaurant dramatically changed. The variety is, of course, standard fare for a Chinese buffet (egg rolls and the like), but it is all done well. In addition, the sushi also available for the buffet was prepared well and pretty fresh. The dessert was also good; the Hershey's ice cream was certainly a great touch. The price for three came to about $20, including taxes. Overall, this place warrants a visit for lunch, given the low price for very good food.

“Go Some Place Else”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

I was in Hershey, PA for the day and had dinner at Asian Buffet. Now I have been too several Chinese Buffet’s in several states and know that it isn’t haute cuisine, but if done right, you will get a respectable meal. At Asian Buffet the food was poorly prepared, some hot dishes were cold and the quality of the food was lacking as some of it did not taste fresh. Even the quality of the ice cream they have is poor. Take your $10 per person and go somewhere else, as at Asian Buffett it will not be money well spent.

“Unassuming and quiet but great buffet quality.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2011

After a hectic and tiring day for the family at Hershey Park, we were driving back to our hotel in Harrisburg and was looking for a dinner place enroute. No far from the park, we chanced upon this asian buffet restaurant and thought we'd give it a try. A little apprehensive initially as it was pretty quiet, but due to the hunger pangs from my 2 boys, we decided to give it a try. While the variety was pretty standard and not cooked in huge quantity, the quality of the dishes were surprising very good. The food was hot, fresh and tasty. It was also very affordable. To finish up dinner, they even had Hershey ice-cream!! Will definitely return when we are next in the area.
