I was kind of leary about going here...the former restaurant did not have a good reputation...but a friend said I needed to go and I was glad I did. Their buffet had around 35- 40 choices and always fresh. There is probably a little something there for every taste and the price is reasonable.

We decided to try this restaurant because we heard it was a very good Chinese Buffett. We were not disappointed. A very large selection of all types of Chinese Food. And a very good dessert table. We came away satisfied!

Enjoyed the buffet lunch at regent . It had all the favourites. Excellent selection and good service. Heard the owner is selling. Hope the quality remains good. The walking bridge over the fish pond is a nice touch. Especially seeing the key fish. Kids love it.

Stopped by for an evening meal....my last review was of the lunch buffet, which wasn't anything special. I was hoping the dinner menu would be better. It was....but only slightly. The food was hotter, fresher, and plentiful, but again some of the dishes were drowning in sauce, and the flavor was quite bland...perhaps not surprisingly, as there were a lot... More

I have been to the Regent numerous times over the last 10 yrs. Food is consistently good. Sitting area is starting to show its age but is reasonably clean and tidy. Staff are friendly and efficient. If prices of most of their dishes could be 10 to 15 per cent lower, then this would be one of my faves.

I have been to the Regent many times and have never been disappointed. The buffet is very good with lots of selection and it's kept well stocked through the lunch hour. The service is minimal but the waiters are friendly and usually attentive. The price is a bit higher than other lunches in the city but still good value. We... More

Growing up in Lethbridge and having an uncle for a delivery driver, you learn pretty quick what Chinese restaurant's are safe to eat at. I also worked at the Regent years ago, and still can't get enough of their delicious food! They even serve dim sum! I would recommend their Hot & Sour Soup (I have never found any one... More

I was eager to try The Regent as I seen some good reviews, but when I placed my order I asked about the chicken chow mein and mentioned that I had ordered it elsewhere before and it had more lettuce than noodles and was curious to know what theirs was like...I was told "Oh no, not here" so I placed...

We arrived at 8pm. and ordered 3 dishes, all of which tasted as though they were on the afternoon buffet. The calamari was drenched in grease. We cannot believe how expensive the evening was.

My father and I stopped in for lunch and had the buffet. It was okay....there was a reasonable variety of items, and they were fairly fresh, but too much sweet and sour sauce on some of the items ruined the flavor. It took a long time for us to be seated, and it was a while before anyone came to... More
