Mmmm. This place is appropriately named, although I've been coming here since it was called East.
It's a little pricey, but you can feasibly just eat and eat and eat. And the food is good and seems fresh! The selection is the biggest for a restaurant of this type and, in the fall, they have a this squash soup that I think about continuously all year. It's mouthwatering! Plus they have a really good amount of sushi and a whole giant grill of yummy things at the back.
The atmosphere is nicer than your average Chinese buffet, cozier and less tacky.
I was skeptical about going here since it was a 30 min car ride for me. I read some alright reviews and decided to give this place a try!
There is a "special offer", lunch was $10.99 and dinner is $18.99 (12% tips and tax are not included).
I had an enjoyable lunch! There were many selections of various chinese food. Not so much soup/ dim sum choices. They had roast pork/duck/chicken. There dessert and cold bar food was pretty nice. The highlight of the lunch was definitely their HOMEMADE Honey green tea with lemon and mint! That was the best and refreshing drink ever. Look out for it! A must try there.
After stuffing my face, I went to the Walt Whitman Mall across the street!

I like this buffet, me and my wife have been here a few times. The Peking duck is the highlight in my mind. Another nice thing that they do here is from start to finish of your meal many dishes change. The sushi is decent, the chinese food is good, I don't eat much of the "american/italian" foods, The noodle shop is also a nice addition. One of the nicer buffets I have ever been to.
My family and I have been here ever since they opened years ago as East Buffet. Since then, the name has changed to Best Buffet and the prices have gone down a bit (though still a bit more than your average Chinese/American buffet place). However, I think for the price you pay, the quality and variety of food is pretty good for both lunch and dinner buffets. They also have coupons too.
They have a lot of more authentic Chinese dishes (ie: snow pea tip greens, szechuan lamb, steamed flounder filets, herbal chicken soup, etc.), a pretty decent sushi station, a carving section with peking duck, a section for cold dishes, an island of fried and misc American style dishes, and a dessert section. For lunch, they tend to offer a lot of dim sum.
Though things may have gone slightly downhill since they've opened, it still works.
Other Chinese buffets just can't compare to this one... in fact, it ruins you for other Chinese buffets, imo. The only other buffet I would recommend besides Best Buffet, is Minado.

One thing I can say, Best Buffet has the best offerings than I've seen at other Chinese buffets. Their shrimp cocktail shrimps are always large and fresh. The crab legs cannot be beat...it is worth a trip just for the shrimp and crab legs!! There is also sushi, dumplings, korean grill items that are delicious.
Best buffet period on Long Island. Been here many time for lunch and dinner and never disappoints with the variety of food. No liquor available.
The best Chinese buffet on the Long Island, not as Westernized as many Chinese food places on Long Island. Many of their customers are Asian, that tells you something. Food is comparable to Chinese food places in Flushing Queens.
Best Buffet has a large selection of Chinese, American and a few Korean and Japanese dishes. The quality of the food is very good. Lunch is reasonably priced. Dinner is a bit on the expensive side but if you're really hungry, this is great placed to pig out.
Newly opened as BEST buffet and no longer EAST.
Easily the best buffet near 110, in terms of food quality, the best on LI.
For $12 for lunch, (after tax + included 12% surcharge) there is no other buffet with such a variety of QUALITY foods.
I love the fact that they ALWAYS have a new selection of foods I've not seen at any other buffet.
If you like sushi they have a VERY nice selection during the lunch hours.
Mongolian grill if you are into that is a plus.
Think Chinese places have the same crappy deserts? not here. Again, VERY different selection from most other Chinese buffets. Including stuff like cheesecake, tapioca, and mango pudding.
Highly recommended since it costs the same as a typical buffet after tip.

I came here with my gf's family on thanksgiving night. the place was fairly empty; the normal wait is suppose to be ridiculous. for the special they had a bunch of seafood and the normal stuff. the highlight of the night was the ginger and scallion lobsters, the hugeee schrimp and the snow crab legs. (i think i persoanlly had around 4 lobsters, a pound of crab legs and a pound of shrimp). Other items i tried were peking duck, raw oysters, yakitori, grilled ribs, mussles, clams, tofu, ham and sashimi. everything was delicious, no complaints
I am glad i found this place. for 26.99 you can have a huge seafood feast and whatever else you want. I am very impressed by the quality of the food, both the flavor and ingredients. All in all, I am a huge fan of chinese buffets, and i think this is probably the best chinese buffet that i have ever had.

I'm always hesitant about any type of buffet because the food is rarely fresh or good. However, Bast Buffet is the exception.
The food in the buffet stations are constantly refilled. Thus, you'll never have to worry about eating something thats been sitting there for more than 10-15 min. As a matter of fact, the lobster goes so fast that you'll be standing there for at least 10min just for a chance to watch everyone else fight over it. (Seriously. People get into fights because the lobster is fresh and too many people crowd that area). There is also a section where you can get food literally right off the grill. That part is set up similar to a cafeteria counter. There is even a station where a cook (butcher?) will give you a fresh slice of meat. They also have a dessert area where you can get some after-dinner treats.
I highly recommend you get there before the dinner crowd arrives. Otherwise, you'll be waiting a while for a table.

If Heaven had a Chinese buffet, Bast would be it. I've never seen so much good food in my life. I especially like the sushi bar. It's not one those buffets where you can "try a little bit of everything" - there's too much food to do so!
However, since the restaurant is so popular, the food doesn't lay there like many Chinese buffets. It's always freshly prepared. Make reservations on the weekends and dinner time, otherwise you'll have a hard time getting in.
Chinese Cuisine AYCE with other foods also.
My first wonderful Chinese AYCE experience was here at Bast Buffet all the way out in Huntington. When I have a chance, I always try to come out here because the food is to die for. It's well worth your money here. Fresh food that is replenished quite quickly. All different types of asian cuisines for you to try out, even some Western foods also. I try to stuff myself as much as I can when I come here and I just come back for more.
I always get the Peking duck here, apparently I can't find any place that can make Peking duck like they do. All their other foods are great asting and fresh. However, I do miss the days when you were able to hover around, stalk and fight for lobster. It is now an extra $4 for your own cooked any way you like it.
