My husband and I come here when ever we're in the neighbourhood, and we always enjoy the food! My husband usually has the chicken livers, which he says if very good. Will be back another time we're in the area.

The soups were the only items hot enough to consume and enjoy. The remainder of the "hot" menu items at the buffet were warm at best. The food lacked colour and flavour. Plus, it was odd to see a Caesar salad offered at all at a Chinese food buffet. My advise to the restaurant is to stop serving this sub-standard... More

Reluctantly went here with friends (the outside is a bit old looking) and there was almost nobody inside so I was nervous but the food turned out to be amazing! The prices were really reasonable, the service was great and the food was excellent. I'd recommend trying this place.

This was our go to family restaurant for many years. In past 5 years we returned as a grown family & with guests,food was so delicious. Now the sight of an empty parking lot was my first sign something was not right. Food tasted so processed, we all agreed that all our dishes were not the same. Not a great... More

Came for Lunch buffet one hour before it ended, and literally half of the trays in the buffet were empty. Staff indicated that food would be replaced shortly. After taking my time and finishing my first course, I went back up, and now less than 50% of the buffet was left. There obviously was no urgency in stocking the buffet.... More

We went for the lunch buffet . The food quality has drop a lot since our last visit. The meat was all very tough and fat. The vegetable dishes were most cabbage. They did have spring rolls and egg rolls. The price is still $10.99.

Ordered take out ...Chicken Fried rice , beef chop suey, sweet and sour shrimp and the Chef's specialty ... golden dragons. Have been dining there for 40 years. And now I have to thank God that I'm not dead. So far 4 trips to my Doctor and one trip to the hospital😩Which has included some very uncomfortable symptoms and tests.
