If you want authenticity and ambiance at an overpriced point, you'd best look elsewhere! While unassuming and off the beaten path, the food is good, filling, and a great price! Good service makes you think of those small town Chinese food gems you come across on the prairies. Must try: egg foo yung!

Typical "local Chinese" dining. Cafeteria like setting, bathrooms were clean, hard to order from menu if your not a buffet person, which I am not. My big complaint is that the chow me in/ vegetables were waved over a distant flame...very undercooked...I want my veggies either cooked or raw, not somewhere in between which seems to be the norm everywhere...

The food (Buffet) at this location was just OK, nothing special. Unfortunately there is such a small selection that it was very disappointing. I've been told by a few people that this is the best Chinese Buffet in Brandon...all I can say is I hope not. Staff was friendly but the restaurant was more like a greasy spoon diner layout... More

Taking friends or family to the buffet for either lunch or dinner is an inexpensive convivial opportunity. The staff treats you like family (of the good kind), the buffet table is freshened up SO OFTEN and the food is first rate with lots of taste. We will return.

Almost everything was disgusting and I used to enjoy this place. The rice was bland, the noodles were hard and crusty, the veggies tasted like butt, the fries and wings tasted like they were cooked in old oil, the soft drinks were watered down. The highlight of the meal was the fortune cookies...which were likely ordered in bulk from Costco... More

We had not planned to dine at this restaurant but because our car was getting serviced 1 block away and it was dinner time we decided to dine there. The waitresses were quick to get us seated and because it was buffet style it did not take long to start eating. The buffet was not extensive but had a good... More

Went for the supper buffet with friends on Sunday March 15th. Arrived just before 5 p.m. There were many choices on the buffet, all available and all were hot and tasted very good. Service was great as far as beverages and plate removal.

This is a basic unlicensed restaurant best known for its fair value Chinese food buffet. Selection is limited but adequate for the non-epicurean diner. The menu never seems to change from one year to the next, especially the 3 item dessert choices – fruit, cake and Jell-O. My father, a senior and diabetic, likes the fact that the dishes are...
