Tasty smorg, with allot of dish varieties. When we took the deep fry off of one prawn discovered it to be almost completely black inside. Pointed it out to the buss person, and also to our waitress who both said they would mention it to the kitchen. No adjustment to the bill was made as compensation. Make sure you check... More

Waited for an hour and a half, phoned 3 times and the owner/lady said all 3 times, " is on its way ok? My driver just left with your food" when it finally got here at 1030 at night it wasn't even hot anymore. DO NOT SUPPORT THIS PLACE EVER AGAIN.

Food just is not so good anymore, I watched a staff member throwing food back in the smorg that was sitting on the plate rail.

It was a big mistake choosing this restaurant on my wedding anniversary. Oh my God what a pathetic food I had. Chicken Chowmein was like boiled noodles (since morning) with dry chicken pieces having no taste no ingredients. Hot & Sour soap was burnt and had weird smell. Chicken fried rice was made of brown rice which I have never... More

We had visited this restaurant once before and hubby was ok with it and I was utterly disappointed. The kids found nothing appealing. Our favourite is Yellow River on 10th where they ask you what you want them to make fresh for the buffet. But I cried a little upon learning that they were closed today and hubby asked me... More

After all day fishing we wanted something simple, tasty, and filling. This chinese buffet filled the bill perfectly, with a reasonable choice of westernised chinese dishes, and unlimited returns to the buffet.

Whether dining alone or coupled, at lunch or supper, both the smorgasbords and "off the menu" items here always leave me smiling. The evening smorgasbord is superior to the lunch buffet as one might expect. Canadian dishes are also served, and the Chinese food is not of the Asian dim sum variety.
