This is my all-time absolute favorite Chinese restaurant. I have lived in many states and have visited many, many chinese buffets, but hands down, this is the BEST! Located in a strip mall on Strickland, near the intersection of Six Forks, this place sits off the road and may be easy to miss, due to other free-standing businesses blocking the view. I am so glad I stumbled on it and once I did, I continue to frequent this place at least 2-6 times a month! The buffet is delicious! My favorite is the black pepper chicken, which for some reason, is not always easy to find on a Chinese buffet. Not only is the BP chicken an everyday offering, it simply melts in your mouth. Another favorite of mine is the Mongolian chicken. In fact, everything I have tried here is amazing. Staff is friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is pleasant without being fancy.

I like it! I ate here regularly from 2005-2007. Then, I moved away from NC and have since returned. There are a lot of choices for chinese buffet in Raleigh, but I generally get my to-go buffet from here. I love the black pepper and

First the lady at the front was RUDE! What little food was on the buffet was extremely stale. The floors and bathroom were filthy. I don't even want to imagine what the kitchen is like. Someone needs to come inspect this place!

I used to like coming here back when I used to work by here, but it's gradually gotten a lot dirtier and untidier. I can't come here anymore without getting just sick to my stomach. I don't even bother going here anymore. What a shame.

My family and I have been going here for about a year.The service has been going downhill in the past few visits. The food is not always fresh looking and last week there was a huge cockroach in one of their dishes. We will definitely not

The restaurant is REALLY dirty. The review of tmx is pretty much spot on. I started noticing how extremely dirty everything was while eating and honestly thought I was going to get sick. If a restaurant is that dirty where the customers

Been coming here for years. The buffet has always been decent (with the exception of the wonton soup which is often stocked with stale/dried-out wontons) and the sushi bar very good...all in all, it's been a generally good, inexpensive

My wife and I eat at this buffet many times each week. For the price, It has the best lunch in town. Sushi, hand dipped ice cream, home-made noodle soup that you decide what goes in it is only a small part of the menu. You can order off a Menu or enjoy the buffet. Supper is also good, and is different from Lunch. We find the service very good, in fact, we know the servers by name. We also like the fact that the servers get the ice cream, and not everyone is in the box (if you have been to other buffets, you understand.). I liked what one person wrote in the reviews, take small portions each time the visit the buffet, that way you don't end up with more than you can eat and waste the food. They also do offer take-out buffet (by the pound) or a Menu if you are in a hurry. ENJOY

Pros: Home-made noodle soup, Sushi, & hand dipped ice cream

Cons: Trying not to eat everything

I dined there on a Sunday evening. The sushi looked like it had been sitting out for hours, and some of the prongs you use to handle the sushi were in the sushi. The rice had been out so long that it was hard, and the sweet 'n sour chicken was bland. I will not dine there again.

Food is consistent and select is adequate. Dim Sum selection/quality very limited. Sushi is OK. Gets quite busy around lunch time...best to go early(before 12 on Sat.). Desserts (chocolate coffee cake...oh my) and hand-scooped ice cream. All in all, good food, great value.

Our family loves this restaurant. The kids have full control of their dining destiny. You can sample Asian and American food from the hot and cold buffet. As the previous reviewer mentioned, this restaurant has a fantastic sushi bar. I must also mention that the restaurant serves the greatest coca cola in all of Raleigh - ice cold and full of carbonation (not that this is a dining requisite, but it sure hits the spot!).

I do not know where to begin with the hot buffet. One recommendation - don't pile your plates full of food - take a sample back to your table, try it out and then keep going up as many times as you like. One word of caution...if you take crab claws from the buffet, you will be charged an extra $2. This may be mentioned on the large diplay board when you enter the restaurant, but your server will not tell you this and there is no sign above the claws at the buffet. Since I am not a fan of these particular kind of claws, I would recommend to stick with everything else (hot, cold and sushi). For dessert, there are some pastries and an ice cream bar (your server will assist with this).

All in all, great food, good atmosphere, great value and nice people can be found here.

Eastern Buffet recently introduced a sushi bar, and I do mean a "sushi bar." Best of all, it's part of the buffet you pay for.

The chef prepares fresh sushi for you. He will also prepare sushi rolls to your specification and will include tuna if you ask for it. At the sushi bar, you can also have the chef prepare a hot bowl of fresh soup. Just tell him what you want in your soup and he cooks it, right there!

Let me tell you, Eastern Buffet is rockin' now. The sushi is simply sumptuous!

The regular buffet items are average I'd say, the sushi bar is what puts Eastern Buffet on top for me. Try it out.

The food here is quite good. Some people may find the buffet offerings to be a tad smaller than say Crystal Palace or Royal China Buffet. BUT, the food is very good. My favorites: cayenne chicken and black pepper chicken. My friend always get the squid and roasted duck. The sesame chicken is yummy as well.
