I stopped at lunch, and tried the new buffet. I loved the curry vegetables, sesame chicken and some of the noodles. My favorite has always been the eggrolls at the chow family, but they were cold and seems smaller, or less filling. I would recommend trying the buffet, and hope that they are able to control the temperature of the... More

Ordered combos that came heaped high and juices overflowing the plate and food was cold. I wonder if the food was just slopped off the buffet. Previous visits were better.

Family get together - been a long time since I ate here or any "Chinese" restaurant where bright red sugary sauce substitutes for sophisticated spicing and flavours. Proportions were large but flavour was "blah"

The food is still good with good lunch special prices, but this restaurant is in real need of a renovation. It is so run down that you feel like you are walking back in time. The atmosphere is not for a good dining experience. Take out is you're best option but it could be so much more.
