Probably the best Chinese buffet I have had. A great selection of delicious items. I have eaten here many times growing up and eat here almost every time I go to Abilene. I would highly recommend it if you are thinking Chinese.

the place has been here forever, due mainly to the fact that it's consistent. the food has always been not to good, but not to bad. Best selling point is alot of food for the money.

I've been to so many buffets, they all seem the same. All good, none great. China star has a very good variety of entrées but very limited sushi. Service is always good. You should give them a try.

We ate here after the lunch rush and both became ill, my wife is still recovering 3 days later. The food was good, not the best, but I believe they might want to watch how they take care of their food. Something wasn't right.

If you're in Abilene and want Chinese, then I suggest going to Houston, Chicago, San Fran, or Seattle. This facility is clean and the staff is efficient and friendly. The menu at China Star list approximately twelve to fifteen entrees, the buffet is extensive. After...More
