There is a new Mongolian Grill cook, and the food prepared on the grill is not quite as good as it used to be. Eastern Buffet still has quite a large buffet selection. It is kept well stocked, and the servers are attentive. The soft serve ice cream is not as good as the Breyers scooped ice cream used to... More

Good sushi for the price, and we generally like the food. Went there Saturday night and used the ladies room, which was GROSS....really bad. Has to make me wonder about the cleanliness of the kitchen. It will be a long time before we go there again.

This restaurant is very typical of the CHINESE BUFFET THAT YOU WANT TO AVOID... There are lots of dishes with plenty of grease and oil. The food looks like it has been left over from the day before. I hate to give a restaurant a bad review, but this restaurant is the kind that I would avoid because the food... More

I wanted to have the Mongolian BBQ but I went up to the counter and nobody ever came after waiting for a long time. I finally asked the person there making sushi , who had been ignoring... More

Our party of four arrived on a weekday afternoon and as usual everything was great! The huge buffet was full of fresh tasty dishes to satisfy anyone. The sushi was fresh and chilled. We especially enjoyed the Coconut Chicken, soups, fresh shrimp, and all the asian dishes. The place is clean and attractive. The only reason we are not giving... More

When you go to a Chinese Buffet you never know what you're going to get. Sorry Forrest. The Eastern Buffet in Aiken, South Carolina never disappoints. I have just completed my fifth dining experience there and it is nothing if not consistent. The food is good, the service is fast, and the atmosphere is acceptable. The price makes it a... More

This is an above average Chinese/Japanese buffet. The food was pretty good and reasonably priced. The food was kept full and everything was hot and fresh.

I have visited many times and always find the selections served at the perfect temperature, beautifully presented and so numerous I can't even try everything I'd like because I couldn't eat it all. The service staff is very attentive and friendly as well.
