“Pleasantly surprised”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

I did not know that you could find such a good smorg in such a small town. The family I was visiting suggested it and I was sort of scepticle BUT was pleasantly surprised. I would suggest anyone who has time while driving thru, to stop and enjoy the food.

“Not Chinese food”
Reviewed 25 January 2013

Tried this supposed restaurant several times to give them a chance. They don't have a clue what Chinese food is. Horrible, stale, mouldy food served each time !! Vegetables had brown slime from rotting on them. Meat tasted very air stale and mouldy at times. Ordered take out to see if better than smorgasbord and watched cook ( dirty clothes and apron on ) come out of kitchen and fill containers from smorgasbord and take to front till to waitress who then bagged it and charged us. All this after being told they cook ordered food fresh !!! Lady behind the till even argued that mine was cooked fresh and what I saw was for someone else !! Anyway, stay away. There is no such thing as Chinese food in grand forks bc if you've eaten it anywhere else on earth!!

Good variety - Salad bar could use some work but generally good food. Hours are inconsistent at times.
