I have been here with family, friends and co-workers and I have never met staff like these idiots. Do not bring coupons because they will argue with you about it. The food is always cold. I have had some waiters ask for a tip. Here's your tip: The service is crap so learn your damn job it isn't hard to... More

This location blows away the Scarboro one but either of them surpass anything you'll find at their big name and advertising budget competition. Large Japanese table (won't say sushi because it scares away the non foodies) Always mounds of crab legs and seafoods cold and hot. Been to numerous buffets and this place is possibly the one with the largest... More

Imperial Buffet, Ajax Run away, run away. I have never placed a variety of buffet choices on my plate and been unable to consume any of them. I gave it a second try, using a new plate with new choices but with the same result; beef that eats like gum, cold food, steam tables that emit too much steam at... More

I was there Saturday night. Although it was busy, the service was good, except for one busboy (must be a relative). The food was excellent, specially the fresh oysters and scallops. All dishes, including the expensive ones are always refilled. I had a 2 for 1 coupon, but I'll definitely go back even with no coupon. We had a reservation... More

I have been to this restaurant many, many times. The staff are becoming more and more confrontational regarding coupons. The most recent mailing delivered coupons that virtually looked identical apart from the fine print on one coupon limiting it to weekends only. They look like 2 coupons that indicate bogo free. Unfortunately when my daughter arrived with her friend to... More

I used to go here pretty often and it was great never really had any problems with the place but one day my sister wanted to go and it was Easter so I said they would be more expensive on Easter and I wouldn't want to pay more for the exact same food I would be getting any other day... More

Had a very nice meal at the Imperial Buffet last night. There was more non-Chinese dishes than I remembered from before (nice variety). We went at approximately 7:30 so the restaurant was fairly busy but not packed so food was fresh and hot. We really enjoyed the BBQ selections. Great price with the coupon but remember to bring cash (coupon... More

They are trying very hard to be mandarin but not so much. The food was just average and the selection limited. The server we had had an attitude when I asked for a second drink. Will not go back.

This restaurant is along the same lines as the Mandarin. It offers pretty much the same selection of food and has a similar atmosphere. The bonus regarding this restaurant is their 2 for 1 coupons. They also serve crab legs on the weekends which the coupon can be applied to. The only negative I can think of is the service... More
