If you haven’t yet eaten at Five Star International Buffet, or even if you’ve dined there in the past, you’re going to want to go back for more. With a new menu, and all-you-can-eat selection of delectable “five star” eats, there’s no excuse not to go.
“We wanted to start the New Year with a new menu that is much more exquisite and fine dining,” shares restaurant manager TJ Gannon.
The restaurant’s new menu includes more seafood items and an extensive selection of sushi.
Lunch is priced at $19 for adults and $12 for children, and dinner costs $48 for adults and $24 for children. With more than 40 items to choose from for lunch and more than 60 for dinner, you know your all-you-can-eat feast will be worth it.
Plus, unlike other buffets, the restaurant serves items in smaller portions, which guarantee you’ll be able to taste a little bit of everything.
The restaurant’s seafood offerings include King Crab, which is steamed, and Lobster. The lobster is first boiled and the brushed with butter and baked before being served. Melted butter for dipping and lemons are served on the side.
For something a little more carnivorous, the restaurant offers Prime Rib. Served with an au jus sauce, it is baked with herbs, and comes with horseradish and sour cream. It is cooked rare, but if you want it a little more well-done, all you need to do ask any of the chefs behind the counter in the restaurant’s open kitchen atmosphere.
Don’t forget to ask about the kamaaina, military and senior discounts.
