Buffet met expectations. Everyone was able to find something they liked. Customer service was ok, not great. They automatically add 10% gratuity to parties of six or more. We had seven, so an $80 ticket quickly became a $100 ticket.More

We had watched their commercials for years, and had hoped that if their volume was high, the chances were also high that everything would at least be fresh. As it turned out, I don't know whether the selections were fresh, but the quality was low--...More

First visit to Buffet Palace with friends on a Friday evening. The food items were fresh, well prepared and made in small batches (so it's not setting under a heat lamp and getting stale). The service was very good and the buffet stations (salad, sushi,...More

Okay, I admit that I'm a buffet junkie. After having plowed my way through Chinese buffets that offer greasy, bland food that tastes the same from one dish to another, it's a pleasure to find Buffet Palace. They have a decent selection of sushi; I've...More
