Great buffet - reasonable price - quick attentive service - may also order from the menu - tucked away in a small strip mall

We go often. Food is always fresh and well prepared. This is a small buffet compared to other places but offers enough of everything. Local coupons make it a very affordable place to go.

In spite of my misgivings about buffet restaurants, I allowed my grand daughters to talk me into visitng China Star Buffet. I was right. The food was less than acceptable.They offered sushi, which was poor and had few choices, soups and an array of hot dishes. It would be pointless to name them as they were very poor quality. They mention snow crab legs but there were two partial legs in the chafing dish and no attempt was made to refill the tray. The only items they kept up on were the least expensive: lomein, breaded chicken dishes and breaded shrimp which was more than 50% breading. The best part of the meal was the self serve ice-cream , I will say that the staff was attentive. That refilled our beverages and cleaned up the empty plates in a timely manner.
If you want Chinese food, go to a full service Chinese restaurant. You are less likely to be disappointed.

China Star is mainly a buffet restaurant although I believe you can also order off a menu. Due to its size, there are about 20 items available, not including the desserts. There is a separate dessert area with fruit, jello, cakes, pudding, and ice cream. The food is tasty and fresh, staff is always checking and refilling when needed. One of my favorite items is the mixed seafood in a butter sauce. The stuffed mushrooms and hot & sour soup are also very good. In addition to the normal buffet fare, they also have crab legs and sushi.

My family has been going here for years and have never been disappointed. They are located just off Rt. 130 on Rt. 522 in the Stop & Shop shopping center. You can usually get $2 off coupons on the back of local Stop & Shop or Shoprite register receipts
