This is the worst chinese buffet Ive ever been. I dont know if it is because it was sunday in the middle of the big weekend in first september, but the food was totally awful. Half of the food cooked 1-2-3 days before, so totally dry and hard, and the the bulk of the other half about to go off.... More

Sadly, this restaurant is not pleasant - in any way. It is very much in need of a makeover, if it looks dirty in the eating area, I would not want to see what the kitchen looks like. I wish they would change the dirty faded pink window blinds, it really brings me down when I walk past it. I... More

This place used to be okay but it's not anymore. If you are looking for good Chinese food Summerland doen't have it and I wish they did. I would say if you are here in Summerland try something else, there are lots of great restaurants.

The veggie food options here are fresh, tasty, and well presented when take-out occurs. The family that runs this establishment puts forth a good effort - try it.

Used to be the go-to place in Summerland, but we stopped going a couple of years ago. Tried it again a few months ago, and wasn't impressed with the quality of the food or the selection. Needs an makeover.

We had a slew of guests arrive all at the same time, some a day or two earlier than expected. The joys of having a home in a summer vacation destination. We had 8 adults and 2 children, everyone had huge appetites! We ordered $130 worth of chinese food and had it delivered. The food was great and we had... More

We didn't even get to eat here, anyone who has allergies to shellfish dont waste your time going here. They apparently can't cook any of their food separate from the shellfish I have never heard of this anywhere I've ever been they always cook it separate for me. So we didn't even get the chance to try it but from... More

The quality of this place has gone down. The food is inconsistant in its taste and quality. Try the Bejing instead.

I have been here many times. The food used to be better. It has become run down and the service isn't as good as it used to be. The food is hot but usually not enough left in the buffet by the time I get there. They are pretty slow filling it up.

Hong Kong doesn't cook huge amounts and let it sit around. They keep the buffet full of fresh hot fare. Always very good quality and great value. And no MSG! We come up from the coast to visit family and have been coming here for a number of years. It's only gotten better with the new name and new management.
