They moved to the Chinese Buffet and share a kitchen, along with the smells. French pastries and sesame oil / soy sauce do not go well together! And I love sesame oil! I'm guessing they've moved to the Chinese resto to save on costs. But...More

This is an interesting place where you can have a Chinese Buffet, with a few other non-typical Chinese buffet foods, like hot dogs, Oregano carrots, and mussels. A small salad bar and dessert bar is also available, with the added treat of ice cream. But...More

La Gourmandine is a unique buffet-style restaurant offering a good variety of Chinese dishes, which are prepared in small batches so that they are always fresh. There is also a small salad bar and dessert bar, including ice cream. All is self-serve, including the Chinese...More

Sound strange but this place is excellent on two fronts. An excellent Cantonese style buffet and a bistro style counter for sandwiches etc as well as a great pastry and bread shop all under one roof. Spacious surroundings make for comfortable dinning.

This restaurant was much better in the little venue where is was previously situated. Now it is in a huge open dining room with no atmosphere. The food menu is not as elaborate as it used to be either.
