THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Eastern Empire Buffet-Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Want to eat ’til you drop? Check out this Chinese/Continental spread, with about 150 items to whet your appetite. Choices range from lobster and dim sum to a salad bar, hot pot items in winter and Mongolian barbecue. Desserts are also popular, although not particularly exotic, and may include cakes, cookies and ice cream. All this unfettered eating is part of the restaurant’s effort to hold its own in the burgeoning Chinese-buffet restaurant competition in the metro area. The big winners are the patrons, who can spend one low price and eat plentifully. Eastern Empire also sells buffet items by the pound, if you want to pick up dinner (or lunch) on the way home.
