This is the re-born/former Mosaic Carling buffet but SO much better(and that wouldn't be difficult...). This Buffett house has undergone a number of management and style changes over the past 20 years or so, and had for a number of years - until last week - failed to find it's "groove." Previously a Chinese/middle Eastern buffet(?!) ...well, not so much.... More

On a hot early evening in July a friend and I attended this buffet. The food was dry and tasteless. The air conditioning was non existant and the washrooms were very hot and humid. There seemed to be more staff than customers. I will never go to this restaurant again nor would I recommend it to anyone.

Whenever my family takes a trip to Ottawa, this is our number one place to go. Yes some of the food does seem as if it was 're-heated' but what buffet doesn't? Many choices, friendly staff and overall great experience. And YES, I have and will recommend others to this restaurant.

I can't sleep from indigestion from last nights supper so I'm writing this review. I paid good money for this and now I have to work the next day without a good nights sleep because of eating there. Save your money and save your health it's too late for me but I'm not going there again.

This place has changed owners so many times, you never know what you're going to get when you eat here. The last time we went, the food was decent. Prior to that, the food was awful. I'm giving it a 2-star rating since it's so difficult to know what to expect. However, I would encourage everyone to try the place... More

My advice to the people who thik to go to that restaurant is to better go to a superstore or metro or loblaws by a baguette, a fresh BBQ chicken some fruits and eat it on the premises. That resaurant does not deserve your money for which you worked hard.
