Great Chinese Buffet in Orillia

Golden Wok has been a staple for Chinese food in Orillia for years. It has now moved to a bigger more modern location near the lake. It is right on Front St beside the Metro Plaza. Bigger more roomy dining area and large free parking area. Food servings are pretty much the same as in their old... read more

We tried the Golden Wok at its new location, very disappointing. There is a large amount of food on the buffet but the quality is not good. When the restaurant was at its previous location, it started to go downhill when the ownership changed. Moving to the new location did nothing to enhance the quality. We used to enjoy it... More

New location, so we thought we should give it a try. It looked like nothing had been clean since they moved in. Bar was full of dust. It is a Chinese buffet, with lots of choices. But just not good quality. Very disappointing. Trish was a great waitress ,friendly and very fast.

Food was good. Service from Trish was great. Atmosphere was fine...until the Supervisor started griping out a guy in an orange shirt in Chinese. I don’t know what he was saying because it was chinese...but his voice, facial expressions and mannerism were very ugly and loud. Right behind my table!! If you have an issue to discuss strongly with someone... More

Adequate but..... For Orillia - OK. But they really need to improve on the tired and tried menus used in the original place to stay relevant. The buffet at the casino much better choice - if additional 10 minute drive not an issue.

3 of us went to try out the new location and were very impressed. The food was very fresh and hot, replenished quickly (not to mention delicious). The chicken wings are amazing. Our waitress named Trish was very attentive to our needs. The dessert bar is tasty and the ice cream tasted like Kawartha Dairies (may have been) We had... More

Was here for a business meeting. The buffet seemed to be good with variety and amounts. Overall a good buffet. The staff were attentive and did an excellent job. The restaurant was clean as well as the washrooms. The price was higher than I expected for a lunch buffet and I will say the food was very "heavy and filling."... More
