Went there the other day for lunch. It was ok, nothing special, just ok. The restaurant says "Gourmet" but I couldn't find the "Gourmet" in the food.

Expensive run down business in a bad area. Food was not the best Chinese I've had. It seems that a lot of Japanese and maybe Korean tourists come by in small buses. They have signs all over saying that will charge you extra if you leave food on your plate. Staff were unfriendly, place looked dirty, old and worn out.... More

The food served here is far from "Gourmet"! We were staying in a hotel close by and needed a bite for supper after a long flight from Vancouver. This seemed to be OK but we were very disappointed with the quality of the food offered and the cleanliness of the restaurant. The only food item that was enjoyable was the... More

The buffet was the centerpiece of this cafeteria style restaurant. Huge selection of standard american buffet fare, plus a lot of pan-asian and local specialties. None of it was especially tasty, though, and the bill was $17 for buffet and a drink. Choose one of the other restaurants in this strip mall.

The food was cold, the price was much higher than advertised. The table was dirty and the food was all over the floor. Would never go back again, better eat somewhere else.

This is very close to the Best Western. We were there for lunch. The buffet is ($10) for lunch. The restaurant is dirty especially the ceiling near the food. Old 5 year old hand written signs are taped to the wall with yellowed tape. That should tell you all you need to know. The food is a combination of what... More

Not the cleanest place. Been there 3-4 times, always an odor. Sometimes food all over the floor from many kids and some adults. Sort of third world. . . .but cheap $
