Formosa brings a wide variety of Chinese, Japanese and seafood delights. The soups are delightful as well. They have sushi as well. Price is right as well. Save room for desserts!!

The food was hot and the buffet was full. The food wasn't bad. The only reason I gave them a 4 was because of the dirty floors. I always think it's a bad idea to have carpeting in a restaurant. If you do it's important...More

Worst Chinese food ever. Even the egg rolls and egg drop soup were awful. It says seafood and there is fish on the buffet but it is Chinese dishes. Price was right.

We have been to Formosa a couple of times and it was pretty good, though a little expensive in my opinion - about $15 per person. We went after a movie on Sat, 4/1. April Fool's Day - maybe that was a bad omen! It...More

For an appetizer, we had the beef and tripe but the beef was quite fatty. The fried rice was good and the General Tso's was the best I've ever had.

This is probably the worst Chinese buffet place in Indy. It is a huge place with number of items but the quality is really poor. I am not going back!

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...More
