“New Management – Not Worth It”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 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”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 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.

Had the Buffet dinner. It was pretty good. Only thing missing was the rice. Servers were very nice and friendly.

“Anniversary dinner”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2012

My mother in law took us here for our anniversary last year. This is the second chinese food place here in Drumheller and while they are better than the first, it's still not that great. In a pinch I would go back here though.

The buffet was restocked regularly but there are very few choices and if you order from the menu they are quick but the food just isn't something I would write home about.
