Your average 'mall' food

The restaurant we wanted to try was closed since it was Monday, so we ended up here. Had the buffet ($16), with all the usual dishes (chow mein, sweet and sour pork, won ton soup, crispy spring rolls, etc), mass distributed from wholesalers, just like 'Chinese' food in your local mall's food court... read more

I love raw fish, and this restaurant offers great sashimi nicely served, and affordable. Best sushi restaurant in town. I go there once a week when I need a treat.

We ordered an assortment of dishes for take out, all but one vegetarian. They messed up one of our orders and gave us a random meat dish instead of the vegetable dish we'd ordered, which would have been ok had the rest of the food been tasty. The one meat dish we ordered was lemon chicken, which was greasy, deep... More

Lousy weather so we decided to have our food brought to us at the hotel - and we were not disappointed. Good menu and the food was great. Portions were over-sized as well. Would definitely repeat this experience

Great restaurant for groups or families. Not fancy, but reasonably priced food with something for everyone. Wide variety of several Asian cuisines including seafood, sushi and desserts. Lots of turnover so food fresh and hot. Appear understaffed for busy times so can be difficult to get beverage refills or tables cleared.

I just grabbed take out...... Lady on phone and the one who was working the cash were great, very nice and personable.unfortunately the food really lacked flavor tho , maybe it's better when eating in but I won't be back to test that theory!

We had a great experience here. I asked them to recreate a dish pictured in the menu even though it wasn't actually listed anywhere; BBQ pork on top of noodles, served with Gailan. Wonderful!

Pros : roomy dining area , attentive staff ( more in cons ) , and the nicest sink in a bathroom I've seen, lots of water refills Cons : buffet is small , and not impressive. If you don't do fried food or sushi, you are pretty screwed. After pointing to a picture on the menu of a dish I... More
