“It is an all you can eat place. That pretty much says it all.”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

Very average steam table food. When it opened it had variety but it has settled in to the least challenging, boil in a bag food for its regular crowd, which is the kind of people who go to all you can eat places.

“FalconAndSassy”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

The service is adequate, but the waiters/waitresses stand too close and they don't smile. It's obvious they don't enjoy their jobs, which is a poor reflection on the restaurant itself. Chicken balls are good. Chicken dishes are good. Fried chicken is good. All soups are tasty. Suishi average to good. Some veggie dishes are good. But...Salads are old. Beef and pork dishes are tough and greasy. Many veggie dishes are too oily. Poor to average dessert bar. The feeling I had leaving the last two times..Overall...too pricey for what you get. Disappointing.

“Give it a miss”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

It's a chinese buffet. What do you expect?

Seriously, If you are not from Kingston, and are used to Mandarin or higher-end buffets (oxymoron?), don't go. If you just want to stuff your face and aren't crazy about quality, go for it. Dessert table disappointing, leaving a flop at the end of a mediocre at best meal.

“Not the Mandarin that's for sure”
Reviewed February 23, 2013 via mobile

Average all round. I've never found everything to be cold. Sometimes something is old so I eat something else. I've had worse Chinese buffets for sure. (See my other reviews)
If you want fast this is the place.
If you want quality there are lots of better sit down or take out Chinese restaurants

Reviewed February 14, 2013

Lukewarm Chinese food is not appealing. Almost everything is fried. Chicken quality is awful. Keep away.
