“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

The food here was surprisingly good. We had been warned by friends that it is impossible to find anything good to eat in Drumheller, but we enjoyed our meal and the owners were friendly, pleasant and helpful. A few other reviewers have mentioned a buffet, but there was no buffet when we were there. A couple of things we originally wanted weren't available, but we were very happy with the dishes we had.

“Yummy”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Very good chinese food. The new owners are very friendly. The food is always good and fresh. They really make an effort to remember your name.

“Order from the menu”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

I am from Vancouver, BC and I know that some good asian restaurants seriously lack decor and the tables are too big for comfort by my taste. Friendly service is also not expected. This is one of those places. Don't do the buffet. Order noodle and other dishes from the menu. I wasn't expecting great asian flavours anywhere in Drumheller, I was surprised. Very tasty.

“New Management – Not Worth It”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

Sizzling House was recommended in our guide book, though other online reviews spoke of new owner ship.

Loving Thai food and trying to be adventurous we gave it a shot, though the exterior is extremely off putting. Apparently, we should have judged this restaurant by its exterior. The food was overpriced. The buffet selection had been sitting there untouched for some time. And my Tom Yum soup tasted like canned tomato soup with mushrooms – at least the mushrooms were fresh instead of canned.

“The best food in town”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

Despite having some language difficulty with our server who was clearly more fluent in Chinese than English, the food was great. When we return to Drumheller we will definitely make this little eating place a stop. And perhaps we might consider their take-out option if we have a busy schedule.
