Service was excellent, they made sure to restock the food that we liked and it was fresh. I want to give them five stars because the owner is so nice but some of the food, including the chicken balls which are my favourite, could have used some more seasoning. Most of it was great though! The prices are great though... More

Well I hate to say it because the owner did seem so lovely, but we really did not enjoy our dinner here at all. My husband and I had the buffet. We found it very overpriced, especially with such a limited selection. Being a vegetarian, there was even less for me to choose. The stir fried veggies were good, but... More

My wife and I visited this little out-of-the way restaurant because we had a yen for Chinese food. We were pleasantly surprised. We chose the buffet meal and found the selection of dishes was very good. The fresh vegetables were cooked just right, nice and crisp, the Chinese way. There was a good choice of Chinese dishes which included pork,... More

We ordered takeout from here and it was not very good at all. The food did not seem fresh. All the meats, like chicken balls, deep-fried prawns, ginger beef, and sweet and sour pork, had a chewy texture like they were old and stale. And everything, especially the chow mein, was overpowered by sesame oil. That's all you could taste... More

There are 5 or 6 chinese food places in Cranbrook. Their buffet may be the small side but the food is pretty good. There are no very good chinese food places in Cranbrook but this would be my first choice.

Wanted some good Chinese and the Lucky Star kept popping up. Rated a 5-star experience on Tripadvisor my wife and I decided to give it a try. Chinese cuisine is right at the top of my all-time great foods favorites list. Over several decades I have eaten fine Chinese dishes from San Francisco to Washington D.C. and lots of places... More

I had a business lunch here the other day and we ordered off the menu. We had Tom Yum wonton soup, beef and brocoli and singapore noodles. The service was very friendly and efficient and the food good. I once again have a Chinese restaurant in Cranbrook that I like. As with all Chinese food, always order off the menu... More

Well that was a mistake. Horrible buffet. Tasteless and even the broth of the wonton tasted like dishwater. Will never go back unless they change management, cooks........ What more can I say?
