“Quick and great food. ”
Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

I'm guilty of eating here many many times. The food is great. It isn't out of this world, but you don't feel like junk after leaving while at the same time thinking you'll be back there soon. Definitely one of my favorite lunch locations in the downtown core.

“Seriously awesome buns”
Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

Fantastic fresh food but above all try the steamed buns. All the food was really good and the owner was exceptionally gracious.

“A delightful surpirse”
Reviewed November 4, 2013

I have been to the dinner buffet, but the lunch buffet is one of the best I have had anywhere. The choices are many and each item is cooked to perfection, not the usual fare we seem to get in Northern Ontario. The quality of each item is excellent, especially the dumplings and the steamed custard buns (they are not for desert, just ask the owner - Elaine). Service is jus right and the price is excellent, I return again and again!

“A nice suprise!”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

I am not a fan of Buffets, especially Chinese ones, mainly because the food tends to be warm but not hot. This is why I had avoided this new restaurant in town for so long. What a nice surprise to find a large buffet with plenty of different options and all of it nice and HOT!
Some of the food was very good and some was so-so, but there is enough selection that my friends and I all came away happy and full. I will be back for sure!
