“Best in the Clear Lake Area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

Frequent 3-4 times per year and find this Chinese buffet to be the best in the area. Has gotten to
be extremely crowded on Sundays especially, so unless you like to wait I would avoid this day.
The soup is adequate, fresh shrimp & oysters good, actual Chinese food is not as good as we
would expect, but overall a fair dining experience at a great value. If you are looking for good
Asian food this is not the place to go.

“Buffets. Buffets. Buffets. What's the appeal?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

Chinese buffets. Mass produced food, usually not at proper temperature. Kids sticking their fingers in food. General feeling that the restaurant is not clean. Uhh, not for me. I will search out restaurants without buffets and those that serve higher quality foods.

“Always an enjoyable meal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Every time I am in the Houston area on the south side (close to NASA) I make it a point to go to East Star and I have NEVER been disappointed. My December 2013 trip was, once again, a really nice meal and a very good price. The food comes out fresh and there is plenty to select from - excellent seafood!

Highly recommended!

“Typical Buffet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

A trip to The East Star Chinese Buffet can be counted on to provide your typical Chinese Buffet Foods. Plus some Sushi dishes for those Sushi lovers. This place has been here for years and continues to deliver the same quality food
