Five Star International Buffet, the newest buffet in town, is one like no other. For one thing, the buffet line is right in the kitchen. The nice thing about this set up is that you get to see the food being prepared right before it hits the buffet line. The bad thing is that the buffet line moves slower because people can't help but look up at what the chefs are doing while they are making their way down the line.
The food is fresh, there is no doubt. They put out smaller quantities so that they can bring out fresh stock of each item more frequently. They even have an employee who roams the line and tells the chefs what needs to be replenished.
Noticeably absent from the line are two items that I see at almost every other buffet: prime rib and crab legs.
Bottom Line: a little overpriced for what was offered. The weekday lunch at $19 might be a better value.
Ask your server about their Kama'aina discount (dinner only).
