Recommended to us by Carlos from Yellowknife Outdoor Adventures. We arrived and thought it looked dodgy. We were surprised, the food was great and plenty of options for everyone. The service was excellent and the food comes out quickly. There is the buffet, however we didn't try it. We ate breakfast here everyday!

They have a good menu and they also have a buffet. So there's lots of choices and you should be able to find something to suit yourself. There's lots of seating for larger groups.

Six of us walked in on a Thursday afternoon for lunch and ordered the family meal for six and I have to say it was very, very good, actually -excellent under the circumstances. The food was very tasty, service was fast and efficient, and every dish was served hot, and was both savory and distinct. Ginger beef, lemon chicken, egg... More

The buffet varies in size and selection depending on how busy it is expected to be. The usual mix of Chinese cuisine with some bacon, perogies and eggs. Good Chinese dishes are on the menu. The staff are always cheerful and able. The place is spacious with lots of windows.

We go here almost every Friday with a large group. Lots of variety, which is goo, as not all of our folks like Chinese food. Most of us get the buffet, but ordering from the menu is quick as well. Service is friendly and quick.

We checked out the buffet and it's your typical western style Chinese buffet. However, they do have a pretty good menu for you to order from. It's more expensive to order but the food is good. We had the rice noodle with beef, beef brisket hot pot, and a fried rice dish on 2 separate occasions. The beef brisket just... More

The food is good, and with a great value. The lunch buffet has some good options, and the plates are enough for two people eat well. It's a nice option on a pricey city.

It is quite expensive and very mediocre food. Unless you are going for the $18.XX + tax buffet, which contains fruits and is pretty good comparing to other restaurants in YK, it's not worthy it at all.
