“Everything you might want to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

I have to say that I have visited many, many Chinese Food Restaurants in my almost 60 yrs and between the food, ambience, service and seating quality, this is a solid 8 out of 10. I've given it an excellent rating above, because I believe the restaurant is consistant in their quality and I think that is very difficult for any restaurant, especially of this size, to maintain. They are great at managing large reservations for parties, etc. My only suggestion would be that parties of anything larger than 10 should be kept in a 'universal area' as others trying to talk at another table, when larger parties are seated nearby, tends to be quite difficult somethings, especially when the parties have children. I do not hold the restaurant responsible for the noise level of a very large party but haven't ever been in a situation to complain either. Their food is great, they are quick to replace food with fresh servings and food is always hot. If you are particular about your Chinese food, they have a great selection but I noticed that the selection is varied between lunches and dinners, serving the higher priced foods for suppers rather than lunches. This too is understandable as the price is also reflected. They also have a good Canadian food service on the floor for those who don't necessarily like the Chinese food service. The salad bar is great, even including fish options. Desert bar is great including lots of fruit. The restaurant is beautiful with themes in each, birds, fish, etc. Even the washrooms are a pleasure to use, regardless of busy times or not. The restaurant can get quite busy but this is a challenge for the restaurant as far as I'm concerned. If we want to confirm availability, we always make reservations. Otherwise it is a first come first seated situatioin, which can make for a lengthly wait.

“Best choice anywhere for Chinese Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

Since opening this location it has not failed to interest our family and also overseas visitors. The food is great, always fresh and the right temperature. The decor is lovely particularly at celebrations, and their Christmas display of lights is outstanding, the best I have ever seen. They are also very community minded, having made substantial contributions to various public events. This company is a great Brampton story.

“Nice ambience but did not like the food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

Nice ambience but too crowded and food is not good as expected for the price Variety is there as you can expect in a buffet but when you pay high dollar you expect the taste to be authentic felt too bland for my taste.

We always love having our family celebrations at this restaurant because of the beautiful fountains and lovely party atmosphere. Reservations have to be made well in advance as this location is vey busy.
Food selection is great and very delicious.
