“Great selection, slightly bland food.”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

I've been here several times, and I leave every time stuffed and impressed by the selection, but not the taste.

If you love all you can eat with a huge verity, check this place out! But if food quality is more important that quantity to you, as it is to me, try other chinese/canadian buffets.

A few of the dishes may be very good, but you have get lucky, as it's not consistent. One time, I found the beef and broccoli more than adequate, an other time, I didn't bother with a second fork-full.

Their soups, however, have always been good. Dessert selection is impressive, and their sweet won-tons are a favorite.

Bottom line: Great in selection and service, forgettable in taste.

“Best all you can eat in the city”
Reviewed October 31, 2012

This buffet style restaurant offers a wide assortment of chinese and Canadian food. It has ample parking, lots of seating and the food is always fresh. If you want a good buffet in Saint John this is it! Expect to pay around $12.00 for lunch, about $15.00 for dinner.

“SO SO”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

I find that it all taste the same and sometimes the food taste like it has been reheated. If you like to eat alot and don't care about quality then you will love it. But if you like nice fresh food then you might want to eat else where. Very prices for the quality.

“It's a good buffet”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

We like buffet's. This one did not disappoint us. Consistent food from being here multiple times. As we do not have that many buffet's in the city, this one gets our business.
