“Good Buffett with Huge Selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

We have been to Moonstar a few times and it is consistent every time. Food is good and there are lots of choices. The quality of the food is good....not great...but worth the price. There are always lots of people in this large restaurant and the food seems to turn over quickly so that it is always freshly made. As with most buffets, the food has a high amount of sodium, so if you have problems with that, be careful.

Do not expect too much from the desserts. The "chocolate" fountain where you can dip fruit or cookies is not really chocolate, so do not expect that. But lots of other desserts for every taste.

The service is good and there are always people clearing dirty plates and clearing the table.

This is a very large restaurant that caters to large groups. There are many long tables that accommodate large numbers of diners, so it is not a quiet relaxing place to eat. If noise is an issue, go somewhere else....but it is fun.

“Hungry?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

This is a place for when you are truly hungry. There is a wide assortment of asian foods. Everything seemed to be fresh and nicely displayed. The wude variety goes from Sashimi to a chocolate fountain. It did not have the usual fare one finds in a Chinese buffet. Well worth a trip.

“One of the better Asian Seafood buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

Large variety of food and it's above avg for a buffet. Serves some of the more expensive seafood selection, such as three type of oyster, fresh, roasted, and steam. Large selection of sushi, even the cone type. Lots of seafood, several crab dishes. All sorts of discounts are available for repeated visits or different specials on weeknights.

“For about $12 for lunch you can stuff yourself with a big choice of buffet items”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2012

If you want to load up on lots of sushi and chinese food, this is the place. it' has a big choice and is a great deal--especially for lunch. It's a good combination with the UA cinema inthis complex. The food is fresh.

“Crowded”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

Place is crowded. A little pricey. The food was ok. Service was ok. Who wants a clean place for a buffet? I do and this is not one of them. Do not expect Reno or Vegas buffet. This is not one of them. I would honestly not recommend this restaurant.
