    Photography-wise its good. But food styling plays a big part in food photography too. One example in the waffle photo:

    Personally like the 3rd photo best.

    Since buffet is mostly about how a person fill up their own plate for photo taking unlike ala carte item where the chef will do it, i think i will comment on this area slightly more.

    If you don't mind, here are some of my comments:

    Photo 1: Composition can be improved rather than the egg is smacked in the middle. The background of the egg looks like some leftover gravy which do not help in making a photo nicer. Since it's a buffet, you may want to use a new plate. The egg white of the egg is burnt out, you may wan to post process it a little.

    Photo 2: Personally don't like Chicken Claw, nothing to do with the photo. The type of cuisine is a little mixed up with salami, sashimi and dim sum. May want to put those dim sum on a smaller plate and shoot the 3 dim sum items.

    Photo 3: A more well balanced photo with a variety of colors. The best photo among all. The only thing is the leftover soup(?) in the spoon on the right. Sorry if it's not.

    Photo 4: As mentioned by photoart, probably should rotate the plate to show the nicer side of waffle.

    Photo 5: Personally think that the cropping is too tight. I would put the cheese and the peach into the background on the left side of the salad so that the pastry can be the main subject. White balance is also a little blue due to the natural lighting coming in from the left. Can post process it a little and push up the yellow.

    Do take note of things which you can easily control, and which are often overlooked:

    - the other items which get photographed too. Try your best to ensure that they complement your subject, rather than become a distraction to the viewer. If they're not necessary, remove them or crop/clone them away. e.g. part of a cup, plate, bowl

    - placement of the food on the plate. try to ensure that it is placed neatly and that you photograph from the 'best' angle/side.
