“Absolutely unimaginably abismal!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2010

Just got back from Sister's on Valentine's Day. $21.99/person for the buffet, which was extra because of Valentine's. Even the regular price of $18.99 would have been ridiculous. Much of the food was obviously pre-cooked, frozen then reheated. Much of it was cold. Selection was poor. Roast beef was like shoe leather. Felt like I was eating at the Legion on account of all the elderly people there. I used to come here as a kid 25 years ago. It used to be elegant and classy. Obviously you can never go back. I was extremely disappointed.

“Real home cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2009

I live in Toronto, in the Eastern end of the city and luckily close to Sister's.
This is an old fashioned buffet, lots of home cooked goodness, always a roast beef and a ham or turkey at the carving station, the best yorkshire puddings anywhere too.
As stated it is nowhere near downtown, but if you happen to be in the East end this is a great spot for a huge dinner, or weekend breakfast.
