When you first approach Formosa Seafood Buffet your not sure what to expect. It sits behind the Denny's in Castleton. It is in the old building that use to sport the seasonal Halloween shop. So it looks pretty cruddy on the outside. When you open the doors though, its magical. Your stepping into a new exotic land. A land filled with a large indoor fountain, beautiful artwork, and unique seating. The waiter we had was very friendly and our drinks never hit bottom. The food was tasty. We went for lunch so no crab legs at lunch :( *sad panda. So, if your looking for Crab Legs you have to go at dinner. However everything else was amazing. My kids loved it and there was plenty there for kids to choose from. There was also a chocolate fountain well equipped with a variety of items for dipping...Strawberries, Marshamallows, and SO MUCH MORE. I loved it and I could have eaten a dozen of the chocolate covered strawberries. Delicious. It is a nice selection of food and I can not wait to go back and experience dinner.
This was my first time eating there, and I was very impressed. The atmosphere, decor, and ambiance was wonderful, and the service was fast and courteous. I chose to eat dinner there, and at $17.99 it was more than I would normally pay. It was definitely worth it though! The drink was only $1.39 for unlimited soda, which is not bad at all, and the lunch buffet is priced at $7.99. The variety of food was very large, ranging from sushi to hot food to salad bar to the desserts, and the quality was very good as well. This is a very nicely decorated modern restaurant, so even though the dinner buffet is a bit more, you are paying for the great variety of food, and the decor and ambiance. The Journey is on the North side of Indy, and it fits right in because it is just as nice as most of the houses in that area. I enjoyed my first trip and will definitely be returning!
Journey is the best Chinese buffet in the city by far. They have a large selection of different, quality items on the bar. The wait staff is friendly and quick to refill drinks or remove plates. The trend most buffets follow is to be good for awhile, then let their quality slide, but they have been there for years and it is still as good as the day they opened. Also, you can't beat the price. Those are the reasons I eat there at least once every couple weeks.
