Went with a family of 5, server was friendly. The layout of the restaurant was ok with a type of wall dividing one side from another. Food was absolutely gross. The rice tasted like chemical and most of the food didn't look good enough to even try. We got the buffet but all 3 kids wouldn't go up for more.... More

We eat here a couple times a year and it is always pleasant. The atmosphere is quite nice and the staff are always friendly. The selection of food has a wide range, and there is something for everybody. If you like buffets, you will not be disappointed visiting here.

I will start out with the positive the waitress was very nice and that's it. The food was horrible as if it had been a few days old and reheated several times no joke. I try to find the positive in things but I paid $25 for ice cream and the water for the scoops looked disgusting as the dishes... More

We went with a good size group for a birthday dinner. Restaurant was very busy but the design of the buffet stations make it flow well. All the food was hot and fresh.Food for everyone including kids of all ages.

We went at lunch (which I think is better value). I would say it is good (not average but that's not an option). There is something here for everyone - standard Canadianized Chinese, sushi, pizza. This is not high end gourmet food but definitely some good options. Server was very nice.

An extensive and popular buffet restaurant with reasonably good food. Hot and sour soup was spicy hot but not hot in temperature. Spring and egg rolls, on the other hand, were piping hot. Likewise, some of the food served was adequately hot, while some was almost cold. There was a good variety of all categories of food. The service was... More

Visited this venue recently. Service was good. Food was fresh, good sushi, and a fair salad bar as well. This is a busy place but the food was plentiful and one never good the impression the place was that busy. Well worth a visit.

The food is good for a buffet. It is worth the money (19$ for Dinner Buffet) if you take your time and actually eat more than 2 plates. There is plenty to choose from and also plenty of vegetarian options. For those who like healthier options there are plenty of vegetables, salad, and fruits available. for those who prefer their...

It's a Buffet with a Variety of choices, the food wasn't bad, you have to keep in mind that usually buffet food isn't high quality, if you want all you can eat, it wasn't bad, it's not great but better than what you would find in a shopping Mall Food court our opinion. If you want quality there are a... More

We went at suppertime. The waitress was very friendly. Her name was Angela. We had the Chinese buffet. The only thing hot was the egg rolls. Everything else was stone cold and it all tasted the same. I then tried the prime rib, which is actually a paper thin ribeye fatty steak that is cooked to order. It was the... More
