I have been a consistent diner at the Totem for the past 7 years. The food is always hot and to a very high standard. I wish I could say the same for the cleanliness of the place.

Always a friendly welcome at the Totem. Their buffet has been a family favorite for a long time. Love the dry pork riblets, prawns and their Chinese tea. In the summer when the green beans are garden fresh, they put out the most delicious green beans in black bean sauce....absolute heaven!

Good Chinese smorg! Friendly owners good prices. Dinner smorg around $11.00 with salad bar included. Love their Honey Garlic Chicken and the fresh prawns. They also have the norm - hamburgers, fries, sandwiches, breakfast. Great service.
