Very Good Service, Good Food. Short wait to be seated. Good salad. Good Hot & Sour soup. Good Tea. Lots of large juicy lemons available. Liked the sesame Chicken and General's chicken. Dissapointed in the brocalli chicken and brocalli beef. Tried one rib, not bad....There was tons of food. Nothing ran out.More

We came on a Saturday night for dinner and it was busy but not too crowded. The food was hot and replenished frequently. A wide selection of sushi and seafood items as well as the usual chicken, beef, noodles, and rice. Overall a good pick!

Stopped in around 530 for dinner with grandkids. Very disappointing, had been coming on and off since opening. Was pretty good then went downhill. Tried again and was ok, it had been awhile so we stopped. Food was old, looked like leftover lunch. The sugar...buns were dark brown and like rocks. Sat there the whole time we were there. Many chicken dishes dry and hard. Most dishes did not look appealing. The crab salad had an off flavor. Ridiculously the best thing on buffet was a baked ham and I don’t like ham. Spent a lot of money for little return. Time to find a new buffet.More

They have reconfigured the buffet to be cafeteria style instead of serve yourself. The Crab rangoon was really good, and the rest of the food was ok. It was not vet spicy, not terribly flavorful. My wife thought the crab legs tasted like they had...been frozen too long. Buffet price on Fri to Sun was 13.99. Drinks are 2.59. Kids are less (about 1/2 as I remember).More

Took 4-star rating as a recommendation, so gave it a try. Some of the foods were cold and not tasty; ribs and chicken were dried and and overcooked. Salad bar was fresh and had a good variety. Sushi bar looked good, but I didn’t try...it. The hot and sour soup was the best choice, along with cooked mushrooms. Most fried items were not crisp. Probably wouldn’t go back.More

For an all you can eat Chinese Buffett , this is as good as it gets. We have been to Chinese Buffetts in several states ( hubby loves sushi), and this was fantastic. Great service, clean tables, and delicious food.

The staff was very nice. The place was clean. There was a wide selection of Asian themed foods as well as some American favorites. The food, unlike some Chinese buffets, was edible. I was charged $12.99 plus tax. Would I eat there again, yes. Did...it blow my skirt up, no. I am giving it 4 stars because there was noting negative to report. I always reserve 5 stars for a rise to greatness.More

Asian Star has a large amount of choices on the regular buffet; a Sushi buffet; and a Mongolian Grill. Generally speaking, there is something for everyone. The salad bar is also worth a visit. Great place for a fast lunch.

The quality of this buffet is great. The sushi bar has plenty to choose from, but the spicy tuna roll was my favorite! We went on the weekend so they had loads of seafood entrées including steamed crab legs, shrimp, fried scallops, clams, mussels, and...salted fried crab. The Grill also had a good amount of ingredients to choose from. I did not eat from the salad bar, but it was very large. The dessert/fruit bar was fresh and good quality, plus they have a chocolate fountain by the soft serve machine! The soups were also very good. This is a great buffet that is worth the price for its variety and quality. We will definitely be back!More

Asian Star was closed for awhile but re-opened several months ago. It is apparently the same as it used to be and I think under the same ownership. Everything on their extensive buffet is very good, Prices went up a little, but it depends on...the day and time. The Senior buffet in the early afternoon is the cheapest, $7.95. I think the evening buffet for adults is $12.95, without drink, with the senior buffet at $11. We always drink water, but soft drinks are $1.99. However, if you are a big eater, you can easily eat that much just in shrimp alone. Everything you'd ever want in a Chinese restaurant, even including Mongolian BBQ for no extra. Very clean, food is always fresh.More
