Off the Beaten Path
Join me on an adventure. Where will we go today?
Disclaimer: I last ate at the Asia Buffet a few months ago. This blog post reflects my memory from last Fall. Hours at Monday through Saturday, 11 am to 10 pm, and Sunday, 11 am to 9 pm. Parking is easy, and the restaurant is handicap accessible. The lunch buffet is $9.99, the dinner is $11.99, and the drinks are $1.99. For the quantity of food available, the price is very reasonable.
There is something for everyone, from tacos to pizza to a hibachi grill. During this time of Covid, a server was behind plexiglass. I pointed to what I wanted, and the server plated it. I have a lot of food issues, and we had a challenge determining what I could safely eat. I made my best guess and stayed away from all things breaded. The Asia Buffet had several vegetarian options. I enjoyed my Mongolian Beef dish. I overate and ate something that did not agree with me. Chalk it up to my food intolerances. The food selection is massive. The assortment of fruits, salads, desserts, and side dishes have something for everyone.
The interior has an attractive Chinese work, but many of the seating and wall fixtures look worn. Some of the upholstery needs repair. Beer and wine are available, along with the usual offerings of coffee, tea, and soda. The restaurant environment is very casual, with table space and room for large groups. The staff is friendly and works very hard. A server quickly whisked away our empty dishes and wiped tables clean as soon as guests vacated. For the quantity of food, there is a tradeoff in the quality. Only some of the dishes were as warm or hot as I prefer. However, the quantity of food available for the price is impressive. If you want to spend about $12 and have an extensive choice of American and Chinese fare, this may be your restaurant.
