the best restaurant buffet i have had worldwide, and oddly enough in GZ.
Located near the famous Garden Hotel, this place attracts all the foreign business travelers. It is worth the trip.

The food quality was fantastic, the buffet selection was the best I had ever seen. The service was wonderful. The waitress who works there named SANNY (i dont think im spelling her name right, sorry) is the nicest person we met in all of China.

This restaurant is a bit expensive by guangzhou prices, cheap by canadian prices still, but it is without question the best food i have had anywhere, so well worth it.

Cant wait to go back there.

The overall food, service, and environment quality is soso only. I would not really like to revisit again. The price is just normal.

No idea about the food, we walked in around 3pm for a late bite to eat on Saturday afternoon, it was dead.
Further, the decor didn't inspire us to return later, but who knows, perhaps the food is wonderful? :)

seriously the best food and service in GZ. After suffering through some pretty risky street meals and traditional chinese cooking, you will love the Italian Restaurant.
They have a buffet that has about 30 items, each of the items would be a main course on its own, so the selection is amazing. Everything from steaks, roast, meatballs, pastas, seafoods, shellfish, pizzas, salads, veal, turkey, casserols, etc.

The restaurant is located just a short half block walk from "The Garden Hotel" which is a bit of a central landmark for foreigners. Take the elevator up to the 3rd floor and it opens right into the restaurant. Be careful not to go up to the 7th floor, you might be surprized what you see, lol.

Be sure to say Hi to Sanny, she is the best waitress in GZ, and after called me by name 6 months later on my 2nd visit to China. You don't find that service anywhere in the world!

In all fairness we ate the buffet two years ago when we were here. food was delicious. We got there for lunch and they were not having buffet. We ordered off the menu and the Fettuchini Alfredo was bland and no kidding it tasted like paste. Food portions were not your avg portion for an Itslian restraunt. Appetizers seved on big plates but very small portions. STAY AWAY FROM HERE!
