This perennial "Best Buffet" winner in the Chronicle's "Best of Austin" poll offers a tantalizing mix of Chinese, Korean, and Japanese cuisine in gluttonous proportions. You'll pay a bit more than you would for your average Chinese buffet, but once you sample the juicy Beef Bulgoki, spicy Kim Chi, and fresh pan-fried dumplings (in addition to the usual Kung Pao and beef with broccoli fare), you'll be glad you did. Buffet Palace also serves a wide variety of passable if not necessarily superlative sushi.
