If it's, Chinese they have it. I especially liked the way the chef repeatedly came out to tend the trays. We started out with a huge shrimp salad, with loads of green olives, then followed with a chicken, beef, pork and seafood main course, with egg rolls, and barely had room left for ice cream and cake.. We also appreciate... More

Going to Chinese buffets is really hit-and-miss. This one is reasonably priced and has a good selection of items for the dinner buffet.

I have visited many Chinese Buffet's in my life time and I can honestly say that this is not the best I have ever been to. It is a small restaurant with less selection than most other buffet's. I was however impressed with what was offered on the bars. For the money this is a nice place to sit down... More

I walked here from Oceans Eleven Casino around the corner. Doesn't look like much on the inside, but once you get in, wow! Three nice buffet islands, fast seating, great variety, and continuous fresh food coming out of the kitchen. Place is very spacious, so always a lot of room even when busy. The service is great, and the staff... More

We went here due to the numerous raving reviews. However we were greatly disappointed. Most of the food on the buffet was cold. Many of the food items had little taste- to include the soups and crab legs. My Asian mother was also very disappointed in the lack of flavor and variety at this buffet. The sushi selection was ODD... More

I am very familiar with this restaurant as I have been there nearly every Sunday afternoon with my baby. It is a very popular place on Sunday afternoons with the ethnically diverse after-church crowds, large families, and lots of people with huge appetites (bigger than mine- and that's saying something). The parking gets a little tricky at times, but there... More

$12.69 on weekends for dinner. It wasn't bad, some seafood mussels, snow crab, a stuffed crab shell, shrimp fried and peel and eat, all the hot seafood except the snow crab had cheese on it and I am not sure why.Good lo mein and fried rice. Good selection of food, could make in smaller batches to keep hot..

I liked the Lo-Mein. I liked the great service. I do not like the loud delivery horns. I don not like the skeezers that work in the kitchen. The sushi sucks. It it be Better as a DENNY's! Truth.

The food is the usual Chinese buffet food--- good but a lot of it seemed to be re-heated - not so fresh. Our server was very attentive and we liked that

I have eaten here twice in the last two weeks. Coming from Escondido, you drive on the 78 freeway to I-5 northbound. Get off at the Mission Avenue exit. Drive a short distance on Mission Avenue east. Turn right onto the driveway at the gas station near China Star Super Buffet. Look west (back towards the freeway) and you will... More
