Supper buffet

Went to the supper Buffett. We were one of the first ones there and everything was fresh and tasty. It was 50.00 for the 2 buffets plus we had 2 sodas. The wait staff were friendly. I did find that it was quite crowded at times and people were just going everyone. There was no organization... read more

The food looked lovely, but it pretty much all tasted the same. This is a restaurant to go to if you want to bulk up for a casting call of the Klumps. I was told I wasn't allowed to take a picture of the buffet, after I had already. The spread looked quite good and I would have thought they... More

The food is fairly good....does not seem to be as good as it was in the past. Also, They are unwilling to compromise on their take out order - we wanted to substitute Guy Ding for Chow Mein, but the lady would not cooperate. Not a user friendly restaurant. I may return but it would not be my first choice... More

We dropped in for lunch today expecting to have a great meal. My mom and I used to drop in every time we went into the city. I haven't been in there for a couple of years now. The food is no where near as good as it once was. The won ton soup was tasteless, the egg rolls were... More

The first time that I went there it wasn't that bad, but the last time it was just horrible. All of the food had a horrible taste on it and I've never gone there again. Also the people who work there are just plain rude.

Went in to ask about 5 people dining. 4 were going to have the Buffet, 1 person had allergies. Inquired about ordering from the takeout menu, and was denied. All they would have had to do was put the takeout order on a plate for the person with allergies. Bad form for any restaurant...

We went here right at supper and were the first in the doors. The food was hot and very good. There was such a big selection that even a picky Eater could find something they would enjoy.

For the variety of food provided, I think they deserve a thumbs up for the quality and taste. Definitely worth a try especially for chinese food lovers who have an enormous appetite! I love the sliced grilled pork (char siew), and the coconut tart. Good place to satisfy cravings for Chinese food.

We got there around 1:30pm after flying into St. Johns. There was about 3 other tables of people in the restaurant. A lot of things were empty and dry. Most products were frozen and fried or heated. There was only 2 cake and 2 pies for dessert. I paid almost $100 for the 5 of us and I feel like... More

Won ton soup was warm enough. Can't say the same for the rest. Every other dish was moderately warm to cool. Yes, I'm sure there was an alcohol gel candle underneath in the very centre of every tray but totally insufficient to do anything than take the chill out. You're even more out of luck if you take the vegetables... More
