As an out of town visitor I was traveling through the neighborhood and after 9PM on Saturday night the parking lot was still loaded with cars and they were still coming in one after another, so I figured that this must be a great place to eat, otherwise people wouldn't be swarming to the place so late at night. I... More

The only place I wanted to eat at if we were just going through town was China Star. I went there a few years ago & was surprised that the food wasn't as good as I remembered. I went back this past week & was seriously disappointed. I literally had to go to the bathroom to spit something out it... More

Lunch hour is here. I'd like something healthy, good, and even though not as fast as fast food- fast enough for me to make my 1:30 pm appointment and have 15 minutes to look over my presentation. Dinner is here and the movie we want to see is in an hour and 10 minutes away. We'll be well fed and... More

This used to be the #1 Chinese Buffett, Asian Cuisine as well as overall Buffett in Abilene, TX. My how things have changed. Their price for lunch is now almost $9.00. Dinner? Pushing $15. Over the past year or so - since they have real competition and have lost customers - instead of trying to up their game they have... More

What a pleasant surprise to find this Oasis of a Chinese Buffet in Abilene. The food was very fresh. There was a large variety of chicken, pork, beef, seafood and noodle dishes. One of the best Chinese buffets that I had the joy of eating at. The Hot and Sour Soup was superb and one of the best I've ever... More

I have heard mixed reviews about China Star, but as of right now (I've eaten there twice) I have had good experiences both times. Highly recommended!
