The food was yummy, the staff was very nice and friendly. They knew a lot of the customers and it seemed like they really cared. With pop and 2 buffets plus tip and taxes it came to about $32 money well spent. We were both full and satisfied. We would go again!

I'm lost when you say they don't understand English so just say sorry sir. First of all, the majority of the waitstaff there is CAUCASIAN, and all the wait staff is female. Apparently you have issue with the place and appear to have never been there if these main facts escape you, or you have trouble recognizing Asian and Caucasian decent 3 out of 4 times. Beyond that, the food here is as good as any buffet with many elements better than most.
Out here in Trent Hills/Northumberland, you are in COTTAGE country. If you're expecting fine dining and mystical delights, you're already in the wrong part of the country, if you're looking for a hidden gem in the middle of a small cottage rivertown, Ming Star Buffet is excellently prices with good quality food and friendly service. You want cutting edge, go back to the city.

Nothing fancy but the selection is varied enough that anyone will discover items to enjoy. Like any chinese buffet, it is best to arrive around 5:30-6:30pm., late enough for the original food to be replaced with hot fresh items, yet not too late that things start slowing down. This is a fav of the locals. Reasonable price, decent quality, decent service.....good place to have a "cheap chinese fix".

Nothing special about this food, just typical. Would go back if I really needed a chinese food fix but I wouldn't hurry.

We received a gift certificate for this place or we would not have went, the food was very greasy, and old, although I live buffets, this was lived up to the local reputation it has, bad!
