It is a good enough place to eat. Nothing out of the ordinary in so far as chinese cuisine. All you can eat buffet and take out are fine. The place needs a little pick-me up, but it's fine.

I've never eaten in but on special occasions with family we take out. If you're sitting in a hotel from out of town and are looking for a good feed of Chinese food this is the place. Hot, inexpensive, food size servings, good value. We always go here and have never been disappointed once. Go ! Take Out.

This is hands down the best Chinese food restaurant in Pembroke/Petawawa. The food is your typical greasy fair but the flavors are so delicious and the buffet has so many choices. Love love love!!!!!

I love Chinese food and I thought that shanloon would be a great place considering they are overlooking the water but unfortunately the view is ruined by all the long grass and there are always children playing near the windows the food is average and doesn't taste bad but it's definitely not the best I've had.

My girlfriend and I went to this restaurant supposed to have the best Chinese food in Pembroke ON... The buffet itself is limited in choice, it's basic... When we ate there, everything seemed to be O.K., except the next day, my girlfriend had an upset stomach... She told me that among the shrimps she ate there was one that was... More

This is your typical greasy deep fried, salty "chinese" buffet. Add to the fact that the food is 50% grease and 50% salt, that the place is not the tidiest, well, it wouldn't be my first choice. I suppose if you just want a quick means of filling up it may suit your needs.

Yes it's busy, so the carpeting is absolutely filthy. Why have carpeting over uneven floors where people are going to drop stuff anyway? Layers of dust obvious on blinds and other surfaces.next to tables. Service is "tired" but friendly. Buffet choices limited to standard fare, but includes a watery and tasteless chicken noodle soup. Needs a manager who cracks the... More

For a change of menu during our stay in Pembroke we decided to take in a Chinese Restaurant. We were surprised to see the items that were on display for the regular buffet meal. Everything that can be imagined was available to excite your taste buds. We have been to other Chinese Buffet restaurants but the variety that was available... More
