I had such high hopes when I heard that there was a buffet with international foods. The service was prompt, pleasant and attentive to taking the used plates away. The place was packed on a Saturday evening, about as loud as one would expect. The decor was interesting, but the smell was a bit off putting. Our kids drinks (Shirley... More

When you try to be all things to all people, you usually wind up pleasing nobody.....that's the problem with this buffet.... mediocre Chinese dishes ....soggy pizza....tough beef...nothing was wonderful, everything was bland.... loud....crowded...save your money.

Food was not fresh and dry. It was bland. The pizza was like cardboard.will not return. The food missed out on taste. The restaurant is not welcoming. I have had food beeter elsewhere. Eating at a buffet is not the cleanest way.

Great place with a wide variety of food to choose from, the food is adequately prepared. The dessert bar needs a lot more variety. Service is good... definitely worth the price.

My kids love this place and they eat for free so it's a win/win. Roast beef is really good and the variety can't be beat. Great for big groups as the dining room is immense.

For a buffet, they have a great selection and the food is pretty good. The only real complaint, they should be offering bottomless fountain drink. By the glass or by the pitcher just seems like a way to get a few extra dollars from people. Maybe that's the point... No idea what other people are comparing this restaurant to when... More

Went with my son, he like everything he tried, I thought the Roast Beef was excellent they cook it medium rare and if you want it medium they will cut a piece and throw it on the bbq. They did have a lot of choices, I was a bit disappointed in the desert, they did not have much of a... More

Buffet all the way. Lack of flavour, slow service, very large and noisy. Good deals, kids eat free with one adult everyday except Saturday I believe. Lots of choices and some good stuff. Just not at all very high end place.

Thank cjddmm
