First visit to Buffet Palace with friends on a Friday evening. The food items were fresh, well prepared and made in small batches (so it's not setting under a heat lamp and getting stale). The service was very good and the buffet stations (salad, sushi, chinese, pan-asian style dishes- just to name a few) were tasty with a multitude of... More

Okay, I admit that I'm a buffet junkie. After having plowed my way through Chinese buffets that offer greasy, bland food that tastes the same from one dish to another, it's a pleasure to find Buffet Palace. They have a decent selection of sushi; I've tried most of the rolls and they're very good and this coming from one who... More

My wife and I had just arrived back in Austin from a trip to her home state of Vermont and needed some quality food that didn't require prep on our part. Buffet Palace has always been exceptional for us, both in variety of choices and quality of food and our return meal back in Texas was one of the best... More

Buffet Palace is an asian food smorgasbord! Anything and everything you could imagine in a buffet! Go hungry :) Highly recommend if you are in South Austin.

We went on a Friday for lunch. Brilliant selection of sushi, salads, soups and 'regular' dishes. Our very picky kids were really excited by the selection and each ate two plates. $35 for all of us.

I have eaten at many Korean Restaurants in the US and Korea over the years as I am married to a Korean women going on 35 years in September. My wife is a very good Korean cook and has a very sensitive palate, she can basically reproduce anything she tastes. She loves the variety of Korean dishes offered on the... More

There is a good selection but food was just okay. Most Chinese buffets are not very good at all but this one is better than most and price is not awful. Service was not good. They had no idea whose table was whose and the girl that was suppose to have my table never served us anything but the check.... More

Our party wanted an Asian dinner but couldn't decide on the cuisine. Fortunately, we found this restaurant and we were so happy we did. Everything was fresh, very flavorful and the variety was awesome. The server checked on us constantly and was very friendly. We will be back on our next visit to Austin.

This is a different kind of "Chinese" buffet serving Chinese, Korean, Thai, Japanese, etc. Food. All of the dishes we tried from their large selection were very good to excellent. The restaurant was clean and bright, and the drink service was prompt. A definite favorite.
