Hi,

I have some friends who are buffet fanatics and want me to take them to International Buffet. I've been a couple of times, but the last time was probably a year ago. I realize that a buffet place, by its nature, won't be the highest quality, but this place, was decent for what it is.

However, I read a couple of reports that it's gone way, way downhill recently. Anyone eaten there within the last 6 months or so, who could confirm or deny for me?

Thanks.

    Had lunch there last week and didn't really enjoy it, well, it was OK but, hay, as you stated, buffets by nature are not the highest quality. However if your friends are buffet fanatics, then they may like it as they have a large variety of items including dim sum.
    They had congee w/ century egg & ham in the soup section ~ that wasn't bad.

      Thanks for the update. Considering that my friends think the highlight of Chinese cooking is Sweet and Sour Chicken, and Eggdrop soup, I think they will be just fine there.

      Was there for dinner on Father's Day and was disappointed. Sure, the selection was good, but a good many of the trays were empty and whatever had food in it didn't look that appetizing. The food was either too bland or too salty. The reason we went there was b/c DH really wanted crab legs and they didn't even have any that night. Paid $16/pp, ate a bit and left.

      Every time we leave that place, we swear we're never going back because the food tastes so bad, but we end up going back because it's the closest buffet place. And there aren't many buffet options on the south shore. As with all buffet places, go for the selection, but don't expect anything quality.
