China Palace has the best lunch buffet in Austin. I love Chinese Food but not necessarily everyday. I own the Tai Chi and Kung Fu school next to the China Palace (Master Gohring's Tai Chi & Kung Fu) and have seen the quality of the food and service go up and down with the various owners. Kelly who owns and manages it now is the best by far. The lunch buffet is continuiously refreshed as needed so food has not been sitting under a heat lamp for hours. For evening and weekends ask for the "authentic chinese food" menu if you want to try what Chinese really enjoy.
