There was a good variety of food to select from at the two meals we had in this area. We found the attendant to be quite efficient as to serving coffee and clearing away used plates. We had a pleasant view of the river.

I'm always a little skeptical of buffets. This one was amazing. As a vegetarian there was plenty for everyone! Desert was amazing! We actually returned for the weekend breakfast buffet too. Equally great. Recommend!

We ate there last evening, again at the recommendation of fellow Richmond residents. First off, it's terribly expensive $39.95, for the buffet on weekends. Weekday day pricing is more reasonable $27.95. However for the quality of the food, both prices are inflated. Most of what...More

At first we thought the buffet was okay but not worth the price you pay. We've come to understand that that's just how Richmond is-it's generally overpriced everywhere. In comparison to other places, the buffet is actually very affordable and good for what you pay....More

On "Taste of Taiwan" nights (Mar 6-April 27, 2017), does the buffet still serve a regular selection of food? I am hoping to have a large group of classmates come here for a grad dinner, but I'm not sure if they will enjoy it if the buffet is only serving Taiwanese food. I'm wondering what other choices of food there will be such as whether there will still be the usual selection. I hope to come on a Thursday night. Thanks!
