When Moonstar was located in its old location between Market and 8th in San Francisco, it was the best Asian Buffett in the Bay Area. Food was gourmet quality, and they actually served lobster tails. Moonstar moved to its Daly City location over 10 years ago, and although the quality of the food has diminished somewhat (no more lobster tails), it's still better than its competitors. The dim sum section is lacking in variety, but that's the only negative. Now the positives..... they have a section that serves congee made to order (select your combination of fresh ingredients). A pho/noodle station serves up noodle soups made to order. They have a section for salads (Caesar's, cucumber, seaweed, etc), sides (diff types of fried rice, egg rolls and other fried appetizers), main dishes (roast duck, Chinese ribs, all manners of sautéed veggies, surprisingly good Chinese beef stew, clams in black bean sauce, all manners of Chinese chicken, beef, pork, and seafood and shellfish dishes - all are restaurant quality). There's a section that prepares BBQ on skewers. The sushi section serves up surprisingly fresh and many varieties of sushi and sashimi (lots of customers, so they're constantly putting out fresh food). The desert section constitutes 1/4 of the food court, consisting of a chocolate fountain for dipping marshmallows and strawberries, an ice cream section, and varieties of cakes, pies, creme brûlée, cookies, etc. Show proof it's your birthday, and the servers will come over and entertain you with a drum serenade. Cost for dinner is about $30 bucks per person, but worth it IMHO.
