This is my favourite buffet. I find it a decent price for the variety and the food is very good with a lot of vegetable options. There are also non Asian options and children's options plus a lot of dessert options.

We've been here before and remembered it as being fairly decent. We went for supper last night, and were terribly disappointed. Some of the food looked old and dried out, as if it had been sitting there for awhile. It wasn't busy in there (~5;30pm),...More
