“Nice Buffet, Simple But Friendly Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2011

I've visited Henry's three times now over the years when passing through the area. I've managed to hit the buffet every time. Selection is great for a "small town" place. There are even a few vegetarian options (maybe a 1/3 of the buffet). Everything seemed really fresh and not overly cooked like you find at some buffets. Some of the dishes included:

>Spring rolls (not sure if they're veggie)
>Won ton soup
>Teriyaki chicken
>Orange chicken
>Prawns with vegetables
>Sweet and sour pork
>Another pork dish (can't remember)
>Chop suey (with heaps of nicely steamed broccolli - still a tad crunchy)
>Chow mein (veggie from what I can recall)
>Carrot cake
>Nanaimo bars!

If you're driving through at dinner (I think the buffet is Friday, Saturday, Sunday only) it's worth a stop.

“great chinese buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2010

If your hungry for Chinese buffet on a Fri,Sat or Sun night this is the place. The staff are very friendly and the buffet/smorg is awesome. It is clean and nicely laid out . It is worth the 20 minute drive for me. My son just loves it! [he likes the nanaimo bars]

“Best Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2010

Best Chinese food buffet Mid Island on Fri/Sat. A small simple restaruant with a good view of the ocean. This is not a pretenious place but a local hidden jewel for food. The buffet is small but very tasty. Buffet starts at 4:00pm, arrive earlier for the best window seats. Snobby people stay away.
