            The short answer is there aren't any. However, Gold Coast on West End has non-americanized dishes for their Saturday lunch buffet. Chinatown in Green Hills is decent enough. K & S market on Charlotte also has good but limited offerings at their food court.

            Other Asian options:
            Kien Giang, Vietnamese, on charlotte near K & S market
            Hae Woon Dae, Korean - Antioch Pike

              i was impressed with the K&S market...great selection of int'l foods. didn't get a chance to try the food court but looked decent. they had chinese roast duck which is a good sign.

                I've never tried the weekend buffet at Gold Coast, but I work near there so I've tried both buffet (once) and menu (a couple of times) there during the week. What they serve tastes like nothing I recognize after having lived 20 years in NYC and eating in Chinatown fairly often. Plus there's a strange aftertaste to the food. It wouldn't even make it as a corner takeout in NY. It's possible that in addition to having a wider menu on the weekends they also have a different cook, but otherwise I can't recommend it.

                  update on K&S Market:

                  went there today and was informed that their food court has been closed indefinitely. bummer.

                    Too bad about the food court at K & S, do they still have whole ducks and roasted pork available? As for Gold Coast, it was over a year ago when I went for the Sat. buffet.
