was there last w/e. pretty good. very good value for your money. on w/e lunch we paid $10.50 for adult with 10% off for seniors before tax and tip. good dim sum at lunch (not sure if they have it for dinner) - good variety of steamed and fried dim sum. lots of sushi but i'm not a big fan of sushi anyway but the quality looked ok...not the greatest. i found the fried foods, ie, spring rolls and chicken balls, and stir fries etc ok (i think mandarin has better quality on these items. desserts not as good as mandarin - ltd choices on cake and pastries and ice cream. but very nice dessert tofu and lots of waffles with fruit and whip cream. good service...water was always filled up. if you go at lunch, best to get there by 1pm because dim sum variety will dwindle down when they stop replacing them.
best part for me was the steamed dim sum, dessert tofu and cantonese fried rice. i think starwalk has large variety but at sacrifice on some quality (i remember seeing cold shrimp, small steaks, duck, octopus but didn't try these).

Best bang for your buck for asian style buffets by far imo. This includes Mandarin and Mr. Wongs etc. Great variety. Nice and clean new building.

Yeah, I pretty much concur with what most people are saying. It's a pretty good value (I think $9 or something during lunch??). Pretty good selection of food, quality's not bad either. Certainly worth going to :cool:
i think this line's mostly filler

Starwalk > China Buffet King > Mandarin > All the other Asian buffets

IMO

China Buffet King has better desserts but Starwalk has better non-desserts.

I just love eating their peking duck

WORSE PLACE EVER!!!
this is by far the worse place i ate this year and i've eaten at a lot of places.

1. fly in the soup
2. sticker still on the fruit (inappropriate)
3. cracked/chipped plates/bowls (against restaurant violation)
4. horrible service

1. when i complained about the fly in the soup...the guy just said "oh ya? and walked away) manager came, didn't do anything, basically said the same thing as the waiter, except for he added "**** happens" when u leave the cover open.
not an apology or anything.
2. this bothers me when you have self serve fruit, and im not talking about the whole fruit that they put there on display, im talking about the fruit salad that's already cut into pieces. how can they have the sticker on those little pieces in the fruit salad.
3. i won't complain too much since a lot of places have it, but i'd expect more from a place which they call themselves somewhat fine asian buffet style dining.
4. as described in #1, plain horrible, no offered any type of assistance. the workers were eating dinner the table next to us and ignored us, i realize they have to eat too but i thought they weren't suppose to eat while customers were still there, and especially not ignore them when they need some service.
they were basically taking the food that was left and customers still wanted more. really inappropriate.

food was mediocre, they never refilled any of the more expensive dishes. everything was first come first serve, rush rush type of buffet where people would push over an old lady to get the last piece of sashimi....a little exaggerated but that's the feeling you get when you eat there.
