Haven't been here in a while (for a reason) but thought we would give another try. Wish we hadn't bothered. Went early for lunch, 11.45 on a Thursday, in the hopes of getting fresh food. The place was literally packed, a seniors' outing or something;...More

What’s not to love about a buffet! Add the fact that it was excellent tasty Chinese food that was always fresh and rotated, a chill atmosphere, not too expensive and a massive range of food 😍 would highly recommend for all people and all ages!

This restaurant has a nice selection of Chinese Canadian food and it was very fresh. The prices are very reasonable $8.99 for the seniors lunch. Very clean place for a nice meal.

We went for the lunch buffet, and it was my first time going to this location. The food selection was decent, as was the food itself. The service was very good. Would definitely go back.

It was just ok. Edible but seemed like a lot of the foods served were possibly frozen foods that were heated up by them - not necessarily cooked fresh. Ok for a quick meal. Lots of variety.
