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

Have been twice & enjoyed it. The lunch buffet has a fairly good choice & all the dishes are tasty with distinct flavors for each dish (something our local buffet doesn't have). The price is not bad also. Even though it's more than 1/2 hour drive, will go again. Will have to try the dinner buffet.

I often go to this restaurant with two of my friends as part of our "girls' night out"...we all like it a lot because it is tasty, consistent, reasonably priced and the staff is just great. We enjoy the buffet, which is stocked with many items and constantly replenished. This restaurant serves "Canadian Chinese" food. They do it very well.... More

We visited this restaurant twice on our recent trip. First time was when we arrived late evening. We ordered special fried rice and ginger beef. Both were very nice and the portions were huge. We took half home! Two nights later we went to the buffet. Nice choice and everything was fresh and topped up regularly. It was very good... More
