East Buffet & Restaurant

42-07 Main St. Flushing, NY 11355 | Flushing | 718-353-6333

Location Description:

This long-running "dining palace" in Flushing has ditched the buffet tables to focus on its core Cantonese cuisine. Authentic hot pot and dim sum have replaced the vast and eclectic spreads of yore, but that doesn't mean East Buffet & Restaurant is much less extravagant. This three story mega-restaurant sticks out from its workaday surroundings in downtown Flushing with a grand, columned facade and plenty of marble. Inside provides a similarly magnanimous experience: cavernous, gaudy, mirrored dining rooms that are loud and hectic, but that's part of the fun. For just under 20 bucks a head, servers maintain a hot pot full of broth on the table and bring as much meat and seafood as one desires to eat, of which the live shrimp and crab legs are highlights. --Alex Spoto
