Decent Chinese buffet - good value for the price!

There seems to be a lot of conflicting opinions about this typical Chinese Buffet. Today I went for lunch along with my 12-yr. old grandson (with the hollow leg!). I found it very much like similar Chinese Buffets in many other places - not great, but not bad! It seemed to be clean and we were... read more

I went there for the lunch buffet and their wonton soup is delicious one of the best dishes they have. They also have a big salad and dessert bar with a lot of choices, fresh fruit and veggies and cakes...will come again next time I visit this town.

Our first impression walking in was that of our waitress, that had the look of just cleaning toilets. From that point we should have walked out. We stayed thinking that some previous reviews must have been right! Not at all, out of the several dishes I had tried only 2, maybe, were passable. Most everything was old and tasteless, some...

we are visiting Penticton,BC....we choose this last minute restaurant.without checking the reviews..we figured that at a buffet, you will always find something you like....what a mistake. The hostess and waitress were both friendly...but they don't cook the food. Food: the soup was just Ok...from there the food went down hill, Shrimps were way overcooked (dry and hard).the fried noodles were... More

Granted, they have had a steep learning curve, but the last 3 times I have been in there it was great. Food was freshly cooked, plentiful, varies daily, the place was clean, servers attentive. And you cannot beat the price. $9.00 for lunch, and $8.00 if you are 55 or over.

The selection is incredible. I don't know where you can find a better meal for Nine Bucks. Food was hot and totally tasty. Definitely will be eating here more often.

Has definitely changed since it opened. Food isn't as dried out and gross. Wonton Soup could use some work, but the meats are yummy. Good value.

Never eat here!! The food is old, probably microwaved and reused, dried up and absolutely disgusting. The first thing I noticed were all of the FLIES hovering over the food. There are spider webs hanging from the lamps 2ft away from your plate. I'm scared to think of what the kitchen looks like. I don't think the place has been... More
