Absolutely Terrible food & Service - Not worth it, please do not go there. We went for the Lunch Buffet and although it is half of the normal Dinner Buffet food, only about 1 tenth of the half buffet was there and what was there was disgusting, dried up and old, and we had stomach problems after. When I complained,... More

We won't be eating at any other buffets in Penticton if this was the best! I don't usually write reviews or complain about food but the food at this place was not good. :(

Don't waste your money. We love buffets and have gone too many in many different places. This is the worst ever. Even my kids are "this tastes funny".

Saw the 'best in town' sign and stopped. I was underimpressed. The food was mediocre at best, it was difficult to get a glass of water. It was inexpensive, and the variety sufficient, but it was not fresh or flavourful and a bit stale and greasy. I would not go back.

I'm not a fan of buffets at the best of times but given friends were eager to give it a go at the Penticton Buffet, we went along with them. All of the dishes we tried save for the ginger beef were quite acceptable and in the case of the seafood, prawns especially, all of it was well prepared and... More

Save your money and your stomach. The worst food I have aver had!!! The only thing good was the ice cream they brought in. Over cooked, soaked in oil, or stale was what we had to choose from on a Saturday night. :(

Lured in by the promise that it had been 'voted best in town', I was surprised to see that the decor was rather dated and that the only people eating there were a few pensioners. As it's a cheap deal for them, hence the patronage, I could only begin to wonder who these voters were. I soon came to the... More

Nice clean place with lots of selection. Mostly Chinese food but a few other items like turkey, mashed potatoes and onion rings. A little limited on desserts. All the items looked fresh. Good service.
