Love this place! It's the perfect combination of seafood and Chinese. They have a great variety and serve everything from crab legs to frog legs, steak, ribs, shrimp and traditional Chinese food. There are different menus for lunch and dinner. They are both great. If you are in the Castleton area- you should certainly check them out.

This place advertises as a Seafood Buffet. It is an average (at best) run of the mill Asian buffet. It does have a fair sushi bar and there was a decent selection but the food is fair at best. There was some seafood on the bar but it was just the normal shrimp and frog legs. Was looking at the... More

I arrived at this restaurant at 9:10PM Saturday night after a long day of driving. The advertised and posted closing time for this restaurant is 10:30PM, so I figured that there was adequate time for a hungry traveler to eat. went to the buffet line and noted that several food items were scarce or non-existent, however I was not overly...

The food at Formosa was average, and I tried this place five weeks ago and nothing has changed. But the customers should be ashamed of themselves, if the place charged them for filling their plates with 25 crawfish, or 15 oysters or a large pile of the small crab legs the customers would not come back. SHAME on the customers!

The restaurant has changed a lot since we have been going there for a least the past four years. Going there on Sundays once every three weeks was something the Wife looked forward to. She would get her monies worth just eating the crab legs, but the quality of the legs has changed. The way some people PIG out on... More

I love Asian food. I eat at Asian buffet type places often. I had always seen this place and wanted to stop so I finally did for lunch one day. All the complaints on here are true. The food is terrible. Worst egg roll I could ever imagine. Terrible soup, worst I've ever had. Almost everything was bad.

We were dissapointed! The choice of dishes was vast, but it was all either digar-coated or plain... Prices are okay. Alltogether not worth a visit!

I only go there on weekday lunches, and it seems Fridays have more choices than Mondays. The grill station is a hit or miss. For example sometimes the Chinese chive cakes were great, other times they were not even cooked through, making them uneatable.
