“Always an enjoyable meal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Every time I am in the Houston area on the south side (close to NASA) I make it a point to go to East Star and I have NEVER been disappointed. My December 2013 trip was, once again, a really nice meal and a very good price. The food comes out fresh and there is plenty to select from - excellent seafood!

Highly recommended!

“Typical Buffet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2013

A trip to The East Star Chinese Buffet can be counted on to provide your typical Chinese Buffet Foods. Plus some Sushi dishes for those Sushi lovers. This place has been here for years and continues to deliver the same quality food

“Big Buffet Selection, Good Sushi Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Reliable Chinese buffet, in business for years serving NASA area. Sushi is a cut above most Chinese buffets. Other favorites are charcoal wings, fried wings (a little different, in a good way), garlickly lo mien, fried fish and surprisingly good yeast rolls.

But at King's Buffet in nearby Friendswood you can get much better steamed dumplings, pot stickers, won ton soup and spicey grilled shrimp.

“Good buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

I like their Budha's delight - best chinese mixed veggies - they put baby bok choy and Shitake mushrooms in it . They also have good beef teriyaki, Teriyaki grilled chicken wings,garlic fried shrimp, and crab legs and a nice array of sushi and shashimi .
The staff is very friendly - they know us there and esp remembers my son as a baby ( he is 7 yrs old now ). They have a nice way of making you feel very special . This is one our favorite restaurans .t
