Food is poor quality, had Lemon chicken that was rock hard unable to cut it, the noodles were bland and greasy, the squid had deep fried shrimp mixed with it, the Won Ton Soup wasn't good either. I stopped in here because they had a a banner voted best Chinese Buffet in Penticton, clearly the town of Penticton doesn't impress... More

Visited this restaurant and as it is budget priced, you expect the food to be not that great, but on this occasion we found some items to not be properly cooked. This really concerned us and we probably will not visit this establishment again.

We went for lunch today at about 1pm. The parking lot had lots of cars, yet there was still very good parking close to the door (important since my husband has problems walking). We went in, were greeted promptly and kindly seated efficiently. We enjoyed the buffet, both of commenting on the selection of foods. Good variety. Chicken wings deep... More

You are able to order the buffet which is very large. A variety of veggies, seafood, rices, and a lot more. You can also order from menu to eat in or order out. One of my very favs is the stir fried prawns I order often.

Things had improved food wise after management changed a couple years back, but lately, food has been getting worse and worse to the point that my wife gets ill the last couple times eating there. I have a stronger stomach, but the levels of salt and grease are too high for most. The only item I really like there now... More

The food was simply inedible. The rice was a dried out ball. The vegetable dish had almonds in it that were so old they tasted rancid. I would not suggest anyone eat this food.
