Large buffet with many selections - unfortunately, none of them really stood out. Warmed under heat lamps and sitting in a steam table, they were all fairly bland. I cannot think, for the life of me, of a single item that made me think "mmm, that's pretty good". There was plenty of food, and the place seemed fairly clean. It... More

On 11/9/15 I had lunch for the third time at the East Buffet in Irving, TX. As always, this review is my opinion in comparison to restaurants of a similar genre. The reason it was the 3rd time is that this place is much better than most of the similar venues that I have been in. With a friend, who... More

It has been several years since I visited this restaurant but while I lived in Irving and surrounding areas, this was my all time favorite Chinese restaurant. True it is a buffett which usually means food sitting for long periods, but this restaurnat is so popular, all the food is always fresh. Sushi chef preparing fresh rice and seafood rolls,... More

I love Chinese buffets because they offer variety and you can eat all you want for a low to decent price. East Buffet Restaurant does not disappoint on both counts. Here, the staff is friendly and the restaurant clean. That is always great points to begin with but how is the food? Two words.... deliciously fresh. There is always lots... More

When co-workers suggested going here, I groaned. I've been to numerous Chinese buffets at home in Southern California. They are mediocre, at best. This place was a pleasant surprise! The place was extremely busy, which meant the food was fresh, since they had to replenish it often. The egg rolls were crispy. The soups were delicious. I would definitely come... More

I spent 2 nights in a local hotel, and had dinner at East Buffet both nights. It was crowded both nights, and I was eating solo, but was seated promptly both nights. The flat rate price changes from weekdays to weekends, and drinks are extra. The extensive buffet was well-organized, clean, and well-stocked. There was a bar with raw food,... More

We visited this restaurant for the first time. We asked to check it out before assigned a table. Looked clean and quite. Then we asked to be seated. Over all not bad and worth the visit.
