The vicinity of Cedar Crest and Hamilton Boulevards is replete with eating establishments, and now there’s one more option in the neighborhood. Gourmet Buffet and Grill is in the Dorneyville Shopping Center, around the corner from the Chicken Lounge and Teppan Hibachi Steak House.
Gourmet Buffet and Grill is exclusively an all-you-can-eat buffet. Diners make their own selections from hundreds of items displayed in more than half a dozen large buffet islands. The restaurant is open seven days a week, serving both lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday and dinner all day on Sundays. The adult buffet price is $6.99 for lunch and $10.49 for dinner, with discounts for children and seniors.
The interior of the restaurant is spacious and open. Immediately upon entering, guests are greeted by fountains, koi ponds and distinctive Asian décor. And although Chinese and Japanese cuisine figures prominently in the offerings, there is also a full complement of American fare as well. Featured selections are made to order by chefs at the hibachi grill. Fresh food changes daily in the buffet, including lots of seafood (shrimp, snow crab, mussels), chicken, pork, fish, fried dumplings, themed main dishes, a sushi bar, extensive salad bar and plenty of vegetables and side dishes. Desserts include an assortment of carefully crafted pastries, as well as puddings and ice cream.
In addition to dining in, patrons may also stop at Gourmet Buffet and Grill and make their own carry-out, sold by the pound. A separate dining room is available for private parties.
