“Very good if it's like it was to begin with.”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

We had a fantastic buffet there when we first went -- probably the best ever; but the last time we were there, they placed us in a VIP area; and the choices were minimal -- not at all like the buffet with all the stations.

“yummy selection”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

Closes too early for breakfast! Dinner has something for everyone. And if you are hosting an event, the staff is amazing.

variety of healthy foods, hot and clean! Servers took your plate, coffee was hot and always available. I usually dislike a buffet due to colder foods but his one it was all hot and being made continually.

“All hype about nothing”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

This will probably my last visit to this buffet unless they improve the quality of the food and service.
Last visit was for my boyfriend's birthday and were let down big time. The selection is terrible and the quality of food is just not up to par considering the place looks really upscale. There is just not much variety.We paid $25 each not including tip and I felt ripped off. There are many other Bufets in Vancouver/Richmond that are cheaper but offer great variety and better quality of food.

The service that day was pretty bad as well. Our server took a long time to clear our dirty dishes even though there weren't many guests in the section we were seated in. He was polite enough, but we found him a little abrupt.

“crazy noisy but great food”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

Food here was far better than most buffets - terrific choice, fresh and hot. Did not like the children running around - not the restaurant's fault of course, but someone needs to explain to some parents that it is not a good idea to let kids think everywhere is a playground. I hate walking around with plates of food dodging running kids and even more I hate kids running around my table while I am eating. the downside of a family friendly place - too bad. One tip - take a sweater or something to leave on your chair or table for when you go up for more food - the over-eager table cleaners thought we were done as soon as we finished our salads and we were fortunate to be able to quickly retrieve a glass of wine (half full) that was being removed).
