“Pretty decent buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2014

I haven't gone to this buffet in years, and I didn't have good memories. So, I was impressed to find that the food was actually pretty decent. I mostly ate the "Western" food (fried chicken, mashed potatoes & gravy, roast beef, mixed vegetables) and it was definitely above average for buffets. My wife ate alot of the Ukranian fare and was also pleased. My mom ate mostly chinese food, she also found it to be good.

“nice atmosphere; disappointing food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

The decor and spaciousness of this buffet are impressive. The food, however, is not.

The best thing on the buffet were the pierogies, and the second best item was the fried chicken wings -- not saying much for their Chinese food. (Actually all of their non-Asian food that we tried was good).

Virtually all the Asian dishes were deep-fried in thick batter. Lots of grease. Less selection than most buffets. Many items had very little flavor. Many were made with cheap cuts of meat. Minimal stir-fried dishes with vegetables.

Service was acceptable. Restrooms were reasonably clean. Seemed pricey for a lunch buffet, especially considering the cheap cuts of meat and heavy breading.

We do not recommend and will not return. Second worst Chinese buffet we have ever eaten at (worst was in Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada). Check our reviews -- we give very few negative reviews, but this place deserves one. Sorry.
