shady business practices

Ordered delivery only to find out that the online menu they are posting is not accurate. All prices were raised and the person who took my order made no mention of it. I was overcharge $13 on a bill that was $48. Would have been $35. Like an idiot I gave a 20% tip without checking. Lesson learned... read more

We're of partly mixed Chinese ancestry and that's about it, however we do know Asian food and this place is by far our favourite for Chinese Food. It's obviously a family run restaurant, and it seems like the kids are serving, so sometimes it can be a tad slow especially if you're trying to flag them down to order another... More

Was nothing special. I didn't get sick so that is a plus. Portion size was huge for the price so that was a bonus as well.

Wish we had taken a better look at the tanks when we walked in. When we were leaving, we noticed the filthy tanks, and multiple dead crustaceans. Absolutely disgusting. Out of the four dishes we ordered, (BBQ pork, spring rolls, chow mein and deep fried shrimp) only two were edible. Spring rolls and BBQ pork. The deep fried shrimp was... More

Used to be one our favorites. Food quality has dropped since they went to buffet. Now everything is trough food. Service was always efficient but the food was the prime attraction here.

They serve buffet lunch but don't try it. We ordered food from their menu. Food is well priced. Quality is good, better than my expectation. You need to know what to order. Tell a waiter or waitress to cook your food with less oil. The owner is really friendly. Nice to recommend what food to order. We even talked to... More

We went for the lunch buffet and came at 1:30 pm paid the full price. The buffet closes at 2:30 however there wasn't much there and when we asked them to replenish some of the dishes we were told that they wouldn't because they are closing soon, I told them that if they are taking full price they should replenish...

The food is substandard, the service is OK but this is probably one of the worst buffet restaurants I have visited. I would not go there again.

Poor service, very oily fried rice, cleanliness (front door very dirty/smudged), badly frayed front door rug. Pieces of chicken in the curry hot plate were from the least desirable parts of the bird, spine etc. Too much sterno under the bowl meant that the dish was bubbling hot and it took awhile to get service to bring another plate and...
