I was told by several people the food was very good. I was skeptical because it is a buffet but after a long day of running errands in an empty stomach we decided to give it a try. Wrong move. Everything was mediocre and I...mean anything. The one good thing I can write is the food hot.More
First time visitor to this location. It is an acceptable, at best average, Chinese buffet. They do not have a large selection. This is a smaller than I like buffet. I went on a Tuesday night = never the best time to visit any restaurant....Regardless, many of the items were tough because they were over cooked.More
Hubby and I needed some eats after his PT appointment.The Eastern Buffet was close and convenient. Food was warm but not hot like I like it.One of the staff did come to our booth to ask about our food and we did express our concerns.We...ate there doing lunch and dinner change and that is not good.They stop bringing hot food out at a certain time.The food is usually good and hot but not this day.More
Have been coming to Eastern since they opened. Have always had great food and service. Have been gone for about three months and last night the wife and I decided to return. Complete new staff.
The food was horrible at best. Everything tasted the same....I tried the Egg Drop Soup, which I love and it was like drinking warm dish water. Sad to see a good place go like this. I can only assume it is an ownership change or cooks, but they need to hire back what they had.More
Delighted in Eastern Buffet several times for lunch. The seven hour drive this time would make arrival at dinner time: 6:45 p.m. on a weekday night. It seemed a potentially bad omen to see the illuminated sign "The EASTERN BUFFET" above the door had only...EAS letters illuminated. Found a near empty venue with limited or poor replenishment of items not well prepared. Restrooms in disarray and the ice cream cone manner of dispensing disturbingly unsanitary. Cones are deep in their boxes, so patrons' unwashed hands all go in to retrieve a cone. Price for two just about at Golden Corral's level.........quality of the food and cleanliness of the venue far below even Golden Corral's questionable standards.More
In my opinion this is the best Chinese buffet in Columbia. The selection is vast, quality good, always fresh, wide selection of included sushi, clean and easy parking. Will not break the budget and if a senior, ask for a senior discount.
One of the best Chinese buffets every encountered. Despite being two in the afternoon on a weekday, the steam tables were attended, ample, and tasty. Over eighty selections, each with satisfying flavor. Staff provides eager service with engaging smiles. All of this for under twenty...dollars for lunch for two.More
My mom, wife, and two small children have been regular customers here for the better part of a year. We stop by here whenever we shop a the Sam's Club on that side of Columbia.
First, the service is quick but inconsistent. They get your...drinks quickly when you order something regular like water or team; however, they take a long time to refill less traditional choices like hot tea. About 60/40 of the time they take your plates off of the table in a quick manner.
Second, the food selections are nice for both a vegetarian and non-veggie. Not a whole lot of choices of veggies, but still serviceable. Lots of meat choices though.
Third, usually the meat choices are hot, but I have found the rice and vegetables to be a bit lukewarm under the lights. Food tastes fine though.
Of course, we are going back. It serves its purpose for why we go even though I am sure that are better quality places.More
