Even during a snowstorm there was a good crowd for lunch. That says a lot about the China Star! They have all the normal options and we find the quality above average compared to other buffets in the Midwest.

China Star is always busy. St. Cloud loves a buffet, but I think they do make an effort here to keep the food fresh and buffet areas clean. They have several buffet lines with everything from appetizers, entrees, desert and fruit items. A lot of...More

Pros: Lots and lots of options. Many different dishes on the buffet. Try one of everything! Cons: Everything is okay, but nothing stands out. Verdict: Mass quantities of so-so food. Come if you are hungry, but nothing here impresses.

Yuck, almost everything was deep fried. Unhealthy and not homemade. Broccoli was hard, egg drop soup was gross. atmosphere was outdated and in welcoming. cashier and supervisor were rude.

The buffet has a wide variety of foods, so everyone can find something they enjoy. You can also get takeout.

Ok so maybe it's just because we went on a Weekend, but it was about 85% seafood. Being allergic to almost anything in the water, that's not a good thing for me personally, and maybe I'm a spoiled American, but the point of a buffet...More

When I wanted Chinese, this was my go to place, usually meeting a friend for lunch. Went for dinner and was disappointed. Most of my favorites were no where to be found. But there was plenty of seafood options on a Thursday evening. Didn't know...More
