I have ordered from there regularly but have noticed a decline in the quality of food. Not sure if they have a new chef or different suppliers but I'm at the point where I will be going elsewhere. I ordered tonight and it was horrible, there was so much grease it was not edible, we ended up taking the order... More

We were a very large group however all of our menu items came quickly. The food although fresh is pretty average chinese fare. There were options for the extensive buffet or a la carte orders. This is an economical place for feeding large groups inexpensively.

We were looking for a chinese restaurant, within walking distance of our hotel, and spotted this one. Lots of seating, quick service. We ordered a dinner for two and there was a lot of food - very fresh and tasty. We took leftovers and were looking forward to having them the next day, but happily shared them with a homeless...

The food here is mediocre at best. Typical for a Chinese-Canadian buffet joint. A nice place to go with Grandpa, Grandma and the family for some plates of mall food, but if you want good Chinese food, go elsewhere. That being said, the wait staff was good enough to bring the rating up to three stars.

We now try to go once a week for lunch on Monday (Seniors day-15% off). This is the best Chinese buffet we've found north of Arizona (including our local one in Campbell River)! We even get take-out once a month or so to bring home for 2 more meals. Their almond gai ding is great - huge chunks of chicken... More

Our go-to place of family birthdays. Lots of space with various size tables to accommodate singles, couples or groups. We always have the buffet or take-out. A good variety and the chicken wings are especially good and so apparently is the hot and sour soup, according to my family! Also a side bar of sushi as well as standard "Western... 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.
