Three of us went to try the $13.99 Daily Buffet (11 a.m. - 3 p.m.) after hearing good things about it. We were not disappointed as it is one of the best Chinese food buffets I have ever had. Lots of choices & everything was...More

Every time we come to Truro we make sure we have lunch here. If timing is right, we will come back the next day. The food is excellent -- great value -- great staff.

Food was over cooked and was not served hot . This was the worst meal I have ever paid for , will not be back . Best part of the meal was the bottled beer .

We had dinner during the week and the restaurant was not at all busy. We ate in the garden room which was nicely decorated and had a sky light. As expected, the menu was extensive. We ordered the special platters which were of moderate price...More
