I went in for a quick combo plate, in entering I had low expectations and just wanted a chance to get some quick Chinese food. Well awkwardly enough they still managed to fail my already low expectations. I ordered a combo plate which was supposed...More

Sushi smelt awful. Ice cream was freezer burnt. The sliding glass cover to access the ice cream is held together by duct tape. The pastries were rock hard. The food is dried out and needed to be replaced with fresh food. In the woman’s washroom...More

This restaurant has successfully made the transition from mid grade Chinese buffet (Panda Garden) to a miserable Chinese buffet. There is not a corner that they did not cut in the change over to Peony. Just don't. It makes Mandarin seem like a great deal.

Nothing special. Good variety. No problem with service as previous reviews had indicated. We had salad, soup, hot food and all was o.k. Didn't have problems as previous reviews

Granted, I did go at 8 pm on a Wednesday so selection was limited. Servers (all male) and management seemed indifferent and frankly clueless. There has been no effort to keep this place up, it is worn and dirty, clearly, they are just there till...More
