“A nice Asian buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2013

Went here for diner while stopping over night in Montreal area. A nice buffet plus a grill and sushi. The buffet had what I consider a limited selection, but not bad. All the items I tried were tasty. Price was $18.99/person. I walked out very satisfied.

“Terrible food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2013

We used to go to Fu Lam in DDO but it closed so we tried cote vertu before a movie night. We went to the wok area and the guy looked like he hated his job so much.... Food is terrible and greasy and taste like its old old old,,service is awful and the waiters stare at you for a tip. We will not go back ever again and did not leave a tip.

“Decent family restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2013

We went there as an extended family on Wednesday the 19th of June; I was expecting it to be slow but the place was bustling with about three busloads of tourists and an assortment of locals either heading into or out of the nearby movie theater.

We tend to go monthly, almost always on a Friday but this was for a special occasion. I've gotta say that the food was hot, fresh and plentiful and replaced quickly by the staff. I noticed a couple of items were missing from the weekend menu: Crab legs and half-shell New Zealand mussels, but all things considered, the selection was excellent.

By excellent, I mean that this place is kid friendly, accessible to both able-bodied and physically challenged customers (no stairs), and offers a huge variety of decent food at a fair price. Foodies beware, this is not going to be a gastronomical experience...people come here to eat; they don't come here to dine.

We have also gone to the same-named restaurants in Laval and in DDO but for some reason we don't find them to be as big or as generous in the number of selections available at the Cote-Vertu location.

“Bad Food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2013

The food was terrible, I had been there before was descent. But on Father's Day the food seemed like left overs. We were 10 people at the table, and we all felt the same way. I Do Not recommend it at all. If anyone could recommend a good chinese buffet restaurent worth going to I will definitely try it out. As for Foo Lam on Cote Vertu I put an XXXXX . Never again will they see my money there. I hope the owner will realize that he has the secret to loosing clients.
