A great place to bring a big family or a group of friends, price of dim sum is reasonable and variety is huge. Weekends mean a long wait and crowded rooms.

There are two distinct restaurants at this location, the upstairs serves Dim Sum for lunch and always have a huge line on the weekend - very unorganized and rude maitre’d, tough luck if you don’t understand Chinese when they call out your number. After 20...minutes of waiting, we went downstairs and was seated almost immediately. No Dim Sum here (even though we were only downstairs) but was able to order noodle and rice dishes. The food literally came within 10 minutes of ordering. We enjoyed the beef chow fun, chicken chow mein, snow pea vegetable, steamed chicken and Peking pork chops. We could have skipped the rice noodle, it was flavorless. We eat here often for dinner and always have consistently good food and great prices. I bet we would have still been waiting upstairs.....More

We were very hungry, walking down the main street and entered this venue. The food seemed nice and tasty, as it looked good. The venue was nice and decorated with balloon, banners, etc. As we turned into line - nobody paid attention to use, only..."ticketed" patrons were served. We left the venue with a kind of regret that we couldn't taste local food, and still in search for it... Living in absolutely remote part of New York, I am familiar with Oriental food. I truly enjoy it. We have a couple of Oriental buffets in our neighborhood and sometime we go to dine there. So good to know local customs if we find ourselves in Flushing next time.More

First time I’ve enjoyed this type of buffet. Steam carts with individual plating brought thru for your selection. Staff friendly and food good.

We stopped in for lunch. We had no idea what to expect. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the hospitality from the staff. We only speak English so they were very patient with trying to explain what each item was. Everything was served hot and...tasted delicious. I’m really glad that we came upon this restaurant while visiting Flushing. If we’re ever in the area again, we’ll be back to eat here.More

Fortunately we went here with a chinese speaker who helped us out a little. We decided to go with all the dishes that were recommended and were very happy with the results- Seafood stone pot, lobster and a noodle dish. Was tasty, very easy to...share, an the prices were excellent. It's only a few blocks from the congested areas of flushing but well worth walking a few extra blocks. Place was much, much, cleaner than many chinese places and we were there about 3:30 so was not crowded or loud.More

Went here for weekend midday dim sum. As is usual at all the Flushing places, had to wait, but nor more than 15 minutes. Giant room, very few roundeyes. Cart ladies come quickly, not as aggressive as we expected. Particularly good shu mai style offerings....Had to special order sticky rice. Wanted to order a plate of greens - out of bok choi (!),out of spinach - they came up with another leafy green, quite good, sesame dredged. Special orders over crispy noodles excellent. We read on their website they have valet parking, but didn't see any sign of it - parked on street.More

I've been to many many different restaurants for banquet style events whether it was for weddings, special birthdays, baby 1 or 100 day celebrations...it goes on and on. Asians love food and when there's a special occasion, Asians dine and boy are they critical about...their food. Nowadays, not only is the food judged like it was a dish on Top Chef, unique presentation, modern nuances to display has elevated dishes to gourmet heights! East Buffet & Restaurant covers all the culinary desires for the Asian diner. Now, you know the rule- if the restaurant is crowded with many Asian diners in a feeding frenzy you know that you've found a great restaurant. You've found it here in East Buffet & Restaurant. From purchasing cooked BBQ char sui, roasted ducks & pigs to authentic dim sum and great party catering for awesome banquets...this delightful culinary restaurant has fed many satisfied patrons for many years. Happy Eating and I'll see you around the table as often as I can, of couse if I'm in the neighborhood! So good!More
