We went for lunch and the Hot and Sour soup was use as good, if not better than Chinatown in Vancouver. All of the dishes were hot and fresh. We've been back numerous times and even tried the dinner buffet. Tearing can sometimes be a bit tough, but no other issues. We will definitely be back.. Good job.

We tried this buffet last week, were totally disappointed. The foods that we tried from the buffet tasted like it had been sitting all day. The meats we tried were so tough you could not chew. The waitress was very nice. The dish washer walked by with a trolley of dishes she was dressed in clothing splattered with paint, looked... More

Went to this steaming heap of garbage restaurant for dinner with my family. It was the worst food any of us have ever had. Words cannot describe the food there. Save yourselves, go anywhere else. I am astounded that they are even open. The restaurant is old and smells like urine, the buffet was empty and when there was food... More

Chinese is what you expect and it is varied and very good but the evening buffet has some of the best ribs, turkey and chicken you can get anywhere. Try it you will like it.

Chinese buffet that was perhaps the best that my wife and I have ever had. Extensive number of items and great ice cream and deserts. Would certainly eat here again

We went to see how their wonton was as the parking lot seems always busy. The soup was very flavorful however served in an old dish. The restaurant has the exact decor from the previous restaurant in the 80s. Nothing seems to have been updated. Old and dusty. Booth seats are ripped and old. A lot of people come in... More

If you were a vegetarian, then you might be a little underwhelmed by the buffet. But tonight it was a carnivore's dream... Melt in your mouth ribs were the headliner, but at least a dozen other delectable dishes of the protein persuasion... Pork potstickers were huge and tasty, and the hot and sour soup was also a standout. Spicy squid... More

Went there as the parking lot seemed busier than other Oriental Restaurants in town. Some dishes were okay (4 out of 5), buy most were below par (3/5). I'd describe the food as way too Westernized Chinese Food...plastic plates, Jasmine pot of tea used a tea bag instead of loose leaf, more of a gut fill place than a quality... More
