It cost $20 p/person for a buffet that was mediocre at best. They did have a lot of seafood options, but I can't eat seafood, so that was a problem for me. The General Tso chicken was more fried than chicken, and ALL of the soup options were seafood.

One of the worst dining experience ever. Terrible service, expensive bland tasting food, rude staff, just a overall waste of my time and money. This restaurant was recommended by someone at the Fallviews Casino but unfortunately, we did not enjoy our dinning experience. The only positive thing it is nicely decorated with tasteful surroundings and cleanliness; nevertheless, the multiple negative issues mentioned above cannot be ignored. Foods are very bland and lack of taste though plentiful. Getting a waitress to respond to any request is like trying to pull teeth. They only respond after numerous calls and only reluctantly. Just down right terrible. After reading many negatives comments on here, my only wish were that I had read them before doing to dine in this restaurants and btw, I am asian so I speak from an asian perspective and am well familiar with asian food and taste. Do yourself and your friends a favor and dine somewhere else less you prefer to have new friends.

The crab rangoon was so stale that it couldn't be eaten. Overall good variety for a buffet but the food had just sat out WAY too long. I didn't find anything that was fresh at all. We expected much more for $15 per person

I went to Niagara Falls last weekend. This restaurant was quite impressive. I am really surprised to see so many negative comments here. From a Taiwanese's point of view, I think their food is quite classic. Perhaps it does not fit the taste of Americans and Canadians. If you like the Americanized Chinese food, you won't be satisfied with their food indeed. Besides, everything is expensive in that area, and $15 for lunch buffet is not supposed to be too expensive.

If i go to a "traditional" restaurant a key observation id the number of people dining there that are from that ethnicity. For example a Japanese restaurant devoid of any oriental patrons is a good indicator especially if your waiter is named Juan. This place is chalk a block full of Chinese. The food is authentic Chinese, I tried easily 8 dishes i had never seen before and they were awesome. Chicken feet not so much but i tried them. Would repeat in a heart beat.
