When you go to a Chinese Buffet you never know what you're going to get. Sorry Forrest. The Eastern Buffet in Aiken, South Carolina never disappoints. I have just completed my fifth dining experience there and it is nothing if not consistent. The food is good, the service is fast, and the atmosphere is acceptable. The price makes it a... More

This is an above average Chinese/Japanese buffet. The food was pretty good and reasonably priced. The food was kept full and everything was hot and fresh.

I have visited many times and always find the selections served at the perfect temperature, beautifully presented and so numerous I can't even try everything I'd like because I couldn't eat it all. The service staff is very attentive and friendly as well.

I did not have high hopes for a good dining experience at a Chinese buffet. Not because of the Chinese part, but the buffet. I had noticed though in other reviews that the restaurant had a grill option of selecting your veggies, protein and sauce and having those grilled up for you. So I walked to the back past the...

Surprised to find as many selections as they offer on their many serving tables. All of the food tasted fresh. The hot food was hot, and the cold was cold. This is one of the top 5 buffets of this type I have been into. They do a nice job. And I doubt you'll be disappointed.

Every time I come to Aiken I try to have a meal here. The food is way above par for buffets. The sushi is pretty good. especially for a buffet. Service has always been very good.

Eastern Buffet is a Chinese buffet with better than average selection. We went to the Wednesday lunch buffet. We brought a Buy one adult buffet, get a free children's buffet coupon which was available on Eastern Buffet's website. I like the hot and sour soup and the hibachi grill. At the grill, you choose what you want from a selection... More
