“Summerland secret”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Really liked the varied items offered on the buffet and loved that the server asked if we would like anything refreshed on the buffet before shutting it down. Good food and service

“Please check out the writers of the reviews for a restaurant that isn't open anymore”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Hi Trip Advisor, I"m not sure how to let you know that there is no restaurant in Osoyoos called the Chinese Laundry. About 15 years ago there was but it changed hands many times over the years & for at least the last 6 years (when I moved to Osoyoos) it has been called the 'Golden Chopsticks' so I am wondering how the 2 reviews were written for the 'Chinese Laundry' Restaurant in the past year or so when there has been no Restaurant called that (the Golden Chopsticks is in the same place but it makes me wonder how good a review is when they don't even know the name of the restaurant)? I go pretty well at least every 2 weeks & have never found their food burnt, cold or overpriced. It is always tasty, a good temperature (from the buffet & normal hot if ordered from the menu), & the service is great at the Golden Chopsticks. I didn't know how else to inform you of this error. Sorry if I am not doing it correctly. The number listed for this Chinese Laundry is also out of service but the one that you have for the Golden Chopsticks is the correct one (I just wrote a review for the Golden Chopsticks). I actually called the Golden Chopsticks restaurant & asked them about the Chinese Laundry & they told me about it being in Osoyoos about 15 years ago as I wanted to be sure that I wasn't giving incorrect information. I don't know what else the family had with the toddler review (Allisontedford) but I don't know how it cost $46 for just the buffet for the 2 of them as I'm pretty sure that they don't charge for a 'toddler' for the buffet. It sounds more like they must have had other items than just the buffet. In the buffet, I have never seen less than 12-16 items in the hot area & they have a cold area as well & a freezer area with ice-cream & a dessert area. Don't know what restaurant restaurant these people were at but it wasn't the Golden Chopsticks. The second review from 'alibilly' sounds more correct as the new owners are from Alberta but they still have the name wrong. I just filled in anything as it wouldn't let me submit this without answering certain questions. Thanks for listening, Csinos

“Overpriced, half cold, partly burnt.”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

$46 for me, my spouse and my toddler to have the buffet. Selection was quite limited, lots of it was cold, some of it was burnt. The staff were super nice and friendly. But it definitely felt like a tourist trap.
