“Birthday Lunch with a friend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

This was my first visit to the Crystal Buffet and I was quite impressed with the overall appearance of the restaurant. They were quick to seat us and take our drink orders which arrived very promptly. The buffet was well laid out and full of interesting choices. The lunch price was was very reasonable and with the seniors discount, our bill, including drinks was under $40.00

“Best Food in Collingwood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

All you can eat Prime Rib Buffet ,if you want a rib steak cut a slice and put it on the BBQ . It is similar to the Mandarin in Barry or Niagara Falls .The décor and service is excellent ,best value for money spent ,have to improve the dessert section mainly the cakes .

“OK food, not worth returning”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

This new restaurant is quite stylish and very clean (well it is new). The buffet selections are numerous including breakfast items and roast beef. The salads were OK, the Chinese selections were in my opinion below average, meats were not tender, chicken balls were chewy and you had a hard time finding the chicken. Desert was a vast selection of out of the box low quality items. The service was minimal, our drinks were never refilled. For anyone who enjoys Bamboo Terrace or the Mandarin this will be a huge disappointment.

“The buffet prices are not worth the food selection!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

My friend and I went there the other night for dinner. The food was tasteless compare to most of the Chinese Restaurant we went. The buffet prices are too expensive for the food selection we got. They have nice salad bar and dessert bar. Unfortunately, most of the dessert we like are hiding behind the case. We had to ask the people whoever working there grab us some. The restaurant is fancy, nice decoration. But the thing is we went there for the food, not the fancy renovation.

“Wonder place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2012 via mobile

A new Chinese buffet in town and what a wonderful surprise. The places is very elegant, the service great, the visual appeal is really good as. A wide variety of foods, including non Chinese, on the buffet, all freshly prepared with a lot of visual appeal. They don't overload the trays so that the food will stay fresh unlike some other buffets in town we know. Want to test it? Try the lunch during the week at only $11 for a real bargain. Best roast beef I've had in a long time and the desserts-Wow! We will be back.
