Based on the menu, unless you are looking for something different the value is in the buffet especially if you are a senior. The won ton soup was excellent with large tasty dumplings.

We love this place as they will go a step further and do their best to special order food that is not on the menu. We can get some actual Chinese non Canadian which is always cooked to perfection. They are the best place to eat Chinese in Yarmouth
