The food was cold (steam tables cold) badly cooked and seasoned. They were out of eggs and bamboo shoots in the stir fry. No egg drop soup, This used to be one of the better restaurants, but has slid badly and it is one of the more expensive.

Don't know why people are giving this buffet such negative ratings. It's good, lots of variety. No, it's not the biggest & best in the nation but the prices aren't reflective of that. Good value.

Don't see how this place has 3 stars. The hot food isn't hot. Looks like the foods been there for a long time. The sushi was meh at best. The servers (stand arounders) were not all that friendly. Definitely not worth the $31 for the two of us.

For an appetizer, we had the beef and tripe but the beef was quite fatty. The fried rice was good and the General Tso's was the best I've ever had.

This is probably the worst Chinese buffet place in Indy. It is a huge place with number of items but the quality is really poor. I am not going back!

Love this place! It's the perfect combination of seafood and Chinese. They have a great variety and serve everything from crab legs to frog legs, steak, ribs, shrimp and traditional Chinese food. There are different menus for lunch and dinner. They are both great. If you are in the Castleton area- you should certainly check them out.

This place advertises as a Seafood Buffet. It is an average (at best) run of the mill Asian buffet. It does have a fair sushi bar and there was a decent selection but the food is fair at best. There was some seafood on the bar but it was just the normal shrimp and frog legs. Was looking at the... More

I arrived at this restaurant at 9:10PM Saturday night after a long day of driving. The advertised and posted closing time for this restaurant is 10:30PM, so I figured that there was adequate time for a hungry traveler to eat. went to the buffet line and noted that several food items were scarce or non-existent, however I was not overly...

The food at Formosa was average, and I tried this place five weeks ago and nothing has changed. But the customers should be ashamed of themselves, if the place charged them for filling their plates with 25 crawfish, or 15 oysters or a large pile of the small crab legs the customers would not come back. SHAME on the customers!
