Went to Buffet Star for the first time two weeks ago ,we always enjoy chinese and have been to alot of buffets ,but i would say this was the worst ,food was warmed up and not fresh ,in fact after having soup i went to try some chicken and just by looking at it i knew it wasnt fresh ,it didnt smell nice or taste nice so i just had a dessert which was ok ,but i just couldnt eat anything else ,and like i thought i was ill that Night ,couldnt stay off the loo ,so we wont eat here again .

I've visited this restaurant buffet many times now & that must be an indication that they are doing something correct.
The food isn't the best, and you wouldn't expect it to be for the bargain prices they charge (especially at lunch time sittings; when it's cheaper) and as it is very mass catering. The restaurant is very large and can sit well in excess of 100 people I'm sure.

You go in, a waiter/waitress comes to your table to take your drink orders then it's all systems go as you race up to the buffet.
They have dedicated 'areas' for starters, mains and desserts but you of-course can mix & match what you want. The starters and mains are very general food you see in places like this: Beef, chicken, chips, rice and so on.

One thing that does let it down is the desserts, it really is only Ice Cream amongst some light fruit bites. However, it is a very refreshing end to your meal.

ENJOY YOUR MEAL.

First of all 6 of us went there tonite and thought the food quality was terrible the ribs were just bones with fat on and the main dishes were luk warm the chicken still had hairs and feathers under the batter which I suspect is due to very poor quality chicken. I will not be going there again. Thanks but no thanks.
