It's been a while since I've been here, but this place is usually set up exactly the same ( which is a good thing). The restaurant is great, I always enjoy the selection of food that this restaurant has. It's very clean, and this restaurant has excellent staff. The sushi is 99% of the reason why I go to this...

The variety and food is great. This is my favorite restauant and I go for lunch here once a month with friends. Also my grandaughter loves it and she is 7 so 1/2 price. Dinner costs more but they have crab legs and prime rib.

I find Mandarin Chinese food bland. I do not like the large crowds when I am eating. Their American food is not much better, I had some prime rib and it was not very flavourful

Beware of the greed of mankind! Don't plan your special occasion dinner around any statutory holiday or the month of December. The normal high prices will be even higher! Food is very good but not the ultimate.

I've been there for both lunch & dinner. Price is a bit higher than its value. Lots of selection & even more selection close to Christmas & New Year, but the price is steeper. Most of the food is tasty, but is also overcooked, especially seafood items.
