OK for what it is

OK food nothing very special but it's to eat. It's not expensive and OK to go with a family and to eat on a budget.

Buffet contained both Chinese and Western Food. Meal was in the middle of the dinner rush, but the trays were always full, fresh and warm. Best buffet I've had in a long time. My wife ordered off the full menu and said her burger was good as well. The Jello and ice cream for dessert made my daughter happy also.... More

We were driving around Brooks looking for a place to eat, when we spied a sign saying 'Chicken, Ribs, and Chinese food'. Wanting to try a local place versus a chain restaurant, we tried it out....but were sorely disappointed with the food and the atmosphere of the restaurant.

Your typical Chinese Food restaurant found in small town Alberta. Seems to be family run. Had a decent selection in their buffet. Service was fine - not bad and not spectacular. I would go again.

Had been on the road for eleven hours and outside of some fruit hadn't eaten so was hungry but unfortunately there was nothing within a ten to fifteen minutes walking distance of the hotel except for two fast food chains, take out pizza and what I thought was a Chinese restaurant but turned out to be a buffet place. Didn't... More

A fairly large selection of standard prairie town good Chinese food but with a *really* nice owner/lady. She asked if there was anything that wasn't on the buffet that we wanted and she would have it made, even though it was a little late (8 or so). They also have ice cream and cookies on the included desert buffet. Next... More

I used to visit here with my family very often since it's one of the only Chinese Buffets in town. However, I will never step foot in there again after I had experienced rude customer service from one of the workers. However the waitress is always so kind! The food is the typical Chinese food, nothing special. I know many... More

I eat here all the time, its not that healthy but hey its all you can eat. The food is somtimes cold though reguardless its on sterno burners. The food is typical amero-chinese food. The staff is very nice though they refill your drinks almost immediatly. I personally enjoy the place, but i understand that some people would dislike it.

although it is now under new ownership and actually renamed as "Starbright". They have changed the menu a little but the former owners are still in the background to ensure that the standards haven't slipped. I think this is still the best Chinese restaurant in Alberta, and I have tried all the top ones in Edmonton and Calgary.
