The price for this restaurant is excellent, actually quite fair than most buffet style places. It's about $11 excluding tax. You get a wide range of dishes from a wide range of nations. The problem is that only a few style of cuisine gratifies your appetite. It's like having a B grade quality of food from each cuisine, and some as roughly as C. And only one D, the shushi! The worst shushi I ever had my entire life. You might want to pass on the shushi if you are having it for the first time. The service is attentive and for a buffet, what more can you really expect? Just as long as your water is refilled. I was here with a couple of friends and most of them said the same thing. Some decent food, others were not, so the price compensates everything.

This is one of our favorite places for Sunday brunch. The variety is awesome and it is well priced. There is something for everyone and it's always hot! The wait can be fairly long at times depending on how busy it is and it's over priced for dinner. Overall very good experience!

We go once a month. The menu never changes. Always the same tired and tasteless foods. The everpresent wonton soup could be served in hospitals. The pizzas have burnt bottoms. My wife forces me to go (she meets her friends).

If you're only in Ottawa/Gatineau for a few nights and you're pulling your hair about which restaurant to visit in your short trip, then this is the place to go. let me tell you why
(1) if you go to a sit in restaurant, you only get to try what you ordered... but with a buffet, you get to try different kinds of foods! Everyone in the family is satisfied bec they get to eat what they want
(2) kids eat free with paying adults!
(3) buffet worth the price (weekday lunch $11, evening $15)
(4) huge international selection (Italian, Greek, Chinese, Canadian)... Are you craving for Italian? Chinese? Greek? Canadian? Don't fight with your family... for this restaurant has it all.
(5) we visited during dinner time and they had salmon, roast beef!, SMOKED meat (amazing!), turkey, pork chops, sushi, fried rice, noodles, pastas, beef stew, swedish meatballs, salads, desserts ... and on and on and on...
(6) great fun ambience
(7) only 15 min from downtown Ottawa
For family of 4 for dinner, we paid $34 before tips. Really worth it!
