My husband and I eat at this buffet probably once a month. Most often we go for lunch and if you get thete at about 11:30AM the food is fresh, hot and plentiful. They have many choices, 1 salad bar, 1 dessert bar, 1 American food bar, 2 Oriental food bars. Beverages are extra, and they will give a "senior... More

I have been here about 4 times in the last few weeks. In the past I went a few times and loaded up on the heavy, breaded and sauced foods and walked out feeling pretty poorly. I decided the other day that I wanted something quick and tried it again. But this time I approached it differently since I am... More

The atmosphere is not exactly inviting: the restaurant is cavernous, but dark. The dingy carpet has seen better days. There is a disagreeable smell of grease and seafood in the air and you have to mouth-breathe until you get used to it, which takes a while. The restrooms are in serious need of attention: I had to back out of... More

It's not the best Chinese buffet I've ever been to but it is the best one I've been to in New York so far. The prices are reasonable and the staff was attentive. The food was average for a buffet.

This is a buffet. There is both Asian and Western food. Very tasty. The dessert can be both sugary or cut fruit. I usually have melons and Rice Krispie cubes. I have chicken in several forms, fish, crab, stuffed mushrooms, etc. Waiters/waitresses are Asian and bring the drinks. Very satisfying.

Food is ok not great but there is a lot of it on the buffet... Both American and Chinese. The place is large and can seat large groups in a separate room.

Lots of buffet choices, but the three types of chicken I tried all tasted the same and all had that gooey sauce on them. The pork I had was dry. Is that all there is to Eastern food? The restaurant is spacious but rather dark. Except for the beverages, it's self-service.

I've been to enough buffets to make a reasonably informed opinion of East Dynasty and it is not positive. Much of the food was lukewarm if not room temperature-a decided food safety issue. Facilities were dirty, particularly the restroom. The actual taste and palatability of the food, even when compared to other Chinese buffets, was poor. East Dynasty is not... More

Dried out sesame chicken and coconut chicken. Overcooked broccoli and poor selections of fruits and desserts. Do not recommend.
