By sharing your experiences, you're helping travellers make better choices and plan their dream trips. Thank you! Very good and fun experience. My kids loved it. Not only do you have an unlimited selection of meats carved right onto your plate but they have a great salad bar and other hot items to choose from. The sausages are the best... More

We went for an early dinner on Saturday night. Staff is very nice and helpful. We enjoyed the salad bar first then on to the meat offerings. They come by and you can take a piece of whatever you like and skip what you don't. Here's the story of the 5 stars and why:. Some 20-something guys come in for... More

A nice place to go for lunch but go early bec when they ran out of food then you will end up with leftovers. Love their sausage! There's not much of meat choices and they ran out of rice. The staffs were very apologetic and I still got my money's worth by eating lots of salad. Pa King is always... More

I wouldn't return here... There's entertainment - the woman at the door asked if we'd like to be close to the entertainment to which we replied no - but somehow she put us about 15' from the main stage. The dancers are fine I guess - but it was so loud that it makes talking to each other impossible. The... More

We enjoyed it! We walked in at 12-noon on Father's Day, the place was empty, the hostess asked if we had a reservation, we said we didn't, she looked at the computer for a minute or two, and said "we have 181 reservations today"--we were surprised. She sat us at table (one by the window), we went up to the... More

We had planned on going here for a few weeks. After having been to this type of restaurant in Singapore we were excited about finding this place. Firstly the salad buffet was very basic indeed almost fast food type salads. The meats served at the table were of average quality. Lamb on the tough side, beef had a strange taste,... More

There was a group of 4 of us that ate here for dinner, we sat out on the patio which was nice. The food was very average. The salad bar wasn't very exciting and the food was bland. As far as the meat goes, the chicken was good, the pork was dry but the beef was decent. The pineapple was... More

If you like meat this is the perfect place for you. We were advised to go for lunch between 12pm and 3pm because this gives the best deal. The restaurant closes about 330pm to reset for the evening and according to local sources in Vancouver, the price almost doubles for the same deal. Once seated - and we did a... More

The restaurant is in a good location, nevertheless the service and the food are not the best. The salad bar seems to be all of frozen or canned vegetables. Paella rice was like "pudding". The people who serves the meat, does not know what kind of meat they are serving. We asked several times for cheese bread and pinealple with... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Vancouver's business district, the Downtown area is bustling with smartly-dressed folks balancing their lattes and briefcases to and from work. The area's plethora of contemporary commercial, residential, and corporate spaces has bred a landscape of nouveau restaurants, chain cafes, and upmarket shopping options. However, located right on the waterfront of Vancouver's energetic Harbour, Downtown is a also popular public meeting spot, with a massive public library and convention center attracting a bevy of visitors both local and not, as well as a hotspot for the arts, being home to some of Vancouver's most cutting-edge galleries. With behemoth architecture and a professional air, Downtown means business.
