In the course of my life to date, the appeal of a buffet spread has changed over time. As a child, a dining experience at ANY all-you-can-eat restaurant was practically like Christmas come early. Nowadays, not so much. Many of the very same restaurants that had me jumping for joy during my childhood days now have me running in the opposite direction, away from the far-from-fresh, oil-laden foods. However there remains some decent buffet restaurants out there and one of them is China Bar Signature Asian Buffet. Touted as Melbourne’s largest Asian buffet, their selection of food is quite extensive indeed. Selection, check. Quantity, check (it’s a buffet!) As for quality, very decent and more so than most of the other buffet restaurants. Admittedly, the price tag is a little heftier but worth it if you’re after both quantity and quality.
Rather than write a ridiculously and seemingly endless post reviewing EVERY single item I touched, I thought I’d just post the photos. Besides, a photo is worth a 1000 words right? Enjoy.

The salad/cold selections.
Yum cha selections - dumplings, egg tarts and all things prawn!
Japanese selections - Japanese salads and sushi. (Sashimi available during dinner time)
More yum cha and Malaysian hawker foods.
A sweet, sweet ending: dessert! Oh, and fruits too for the healthy-conscious.
The desserts were quite petite-sized, which means stomach space to sample more goods.
Cheese, bread and olive selections.
BRIE. AND BLUE CHEESE. I’m not a fan of blue cheese but the capital letters were used to emphasize how amazed I was to see such good-quality cheese up for grabs.
