“Worst Chinese Food We Have Ever Had!!! Avoid It!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2014

My wife and I have travelled extensively and stopped here on a recent vacation, as our hotel was just down the street. When we arrived the restaurant was half full at the most. We did the buffet as it seemed what everyone else was doing. What a mistake. Several of the dishes were out and no signs of being filled so we took what was there. We were there in the middle of the week?? The food, which is what we were there for, was terrible. Some of the dishes tasted very bland and with a watered down flavour. Some of the dishes tasted like they were off, as in a sour taste. Some of the meats were extremely tough. Several of the dishes tasted like they had been made in the same pot. The desserts were few and very unappetizing. Many of the tables were empty and dirty. By far the worst meal we had had on our vacation. Service was terrible. I have given this restaurant a 1 our of 5 but it does not even deserve that. Then, on top of everything else and to add insult to injury, the cost of the buffet was more than we have ever paid at a Chinese restaurant. What a disappointment!!!! Hopefully this review will save some people from the same experience...

“Always fresh food...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013

I have been stopping there for years every time I get a chance to go to Lethbridge. Their buffets are always fresh and plentiful. The tip is that you should get there early to beat the crowd. The family that owns it changes up the eveing buffet with some unusual treats...well worth the stop.
