I used to go to the Imperial Buffet in Ajax on occasion with family. While it was decent in the past, my most recent visit was the first time in years I made a complaint at a restaurant. Not only did the new management jack the prices (now $30/person during weekends), but the food and service quality went down the... More

We've been here at least a dozen times, and for a while it looked like the restaurant was getting better, it seems to be as bad as when we first visited. On this Sunday lunch the restaurant was barely half full (not a good sign). While checking out the buffet I noticed that the selection was not as good as... More

After getting a "buy one dinner, get one free" coupon from the Imperial Buffet in the mail, we decided to taste test the weekend menu of this restaurant for comparison to similar establishments. Upon presenting the coupon before being seated, we were advised that the payment had to be in cash. The establishment felt very basic,but clean, no table cloth,... More

I took my family there and we were very disappointed. We have been here before and it seems the quality is dropping. The food was cold and had been on the buffet far too long. For $30 a plate, you can get much better food elsewhere. We will not be back.

I used to enjoy this buffet with my family quite often, but after the last two times we visited, we will never go back again. It has gone down drastically and the food is nearly inedible. High prices, mediocre service, and the worst food I've ever had at a buffet. I would recommend going anywhere else.

We continue to go way out of our way to visit the Imperial Buffet. This place is the absolute best buffet anywhere. The food is great with lots of variety.

Hot food average but not very hot. Deserts are very good. Over all not bad but make sure you have a coupon as price is very high otherwise.
