“Great Buffet Value”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

There are many "all you can eat" buffet restaurants these days but Lau's is the king of buffets. Located on Stowell Street in the heart of Newcastle's China Town, Lau's is always busy but you rarely have to wait long to be seated. The buffet price varies depending on the time of day but there is not a great difference and whenever you go you will get great value for money. They have an amazing selection of dishes most of which are very tasty. There is something to suit most palates. Of course, it helps, if you have a hearty appetite as buffet restaurants tend to encourage greed. Some people pile their plates high, which is unnecessary as you can go back as many times as you like. They are licensed, so you can have a drink with your meal if you wish.

“Good Food”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

The food and service at Lau's was very good. Great selection of food with something anyone will like. The waiters and waiteress's always available if you need more drinks or to clear the table when you are finished. Not expensive. Great for work night out or party as they have larger tables available.

“Average .. Not much variety..”
Reviewed February 13, 2013 via mobile

It's good. Value for the price you pay .. But food lacks flavour .. Place to go if you just want to stuff yourself for the lower price ..

“All I could eat- good value.”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

For the money- all we can eat sushi is good. Can't say the wasabi and soya sauce replaces the ginger, still, some sushi for less price never hurts. Ice creams are okay, not so great.
