The food was good but pretty boring in compared to other buffets we have been to. They need to change the variety of dishes. We may go back. They other one down the road is far and above better quality food.

Nothing special for me but it seems as if the locals love it. Went early so everything was fresh, but just not to my liking. A bit expensive for the offerings.

Very disappointing. The remodelling is good but food at buffet has totally gone wrong. Also the price has gone... More

I can't believe anyone could complain about the food or the service!!! This is by far the best Chinese Buffet in the Okanagan. The best wings I have ever had and the huge prawns without the usual heavy batter, just huge juicy prawns. Squid is awesome too and always fresh and hot!! Never been disappointed and I have eaten there... More

Huge mistake, horrible food and service. Didn't get the drink that I ordered and when I told the waitress she said humpf and walked away. I should have left without paying. Was sick for 2 days after eating the food that I should not have eaten. Wish Penticton had a good Chinese buffet. Wish this place would close.

Girlfriend and I ordered some takeout. 3 dishes. Deep fried prawns ginger beef and chicken chow mein. Delivery was quick everything looked fine. We started eating and I found some staples in the chow mein. I caked the resturant about it. They did nothing. No refund so new dish. Just ignoring the whole thing. Beef was dry as hell. Prawns...
