I decided to try this place after reading the pretty decent reviews on Tripadvisor. I figured there will be food that I like, and also my kids like. Lunch is 7.99 for adults, and 60cent per year for kids. We were sitted promtly. The menu is decent with many different choices. My kids have been asking for Mac and cheese... More

The atmosphere was pleasant. Lunch buffet was $7.99 per person and had the very best selection my husband or I have seen at a restaurant of this kind. My hubby says he's never seen Egg Foo Yung on any other buffet. There were lots of cold and dessert options as well as American food for pickier eaters.

We had lunch but the best was the Sunday brunch. $12.99 buffet. Yummy fried jumbo shrimp, shrimp grilled and breaded, ginger lobsters, our favourite. Tried the cold crayfish was good. Don't fill up rice and noodles. Enjoyed the fresh fruits.

You won't leave hungry since there is so much to eat from sushi, vegetables, meats, desserts, and traditional chinese foods you'd look for. Food was typical so nothing that special but if you want a buffet this is a great choice.

The Grand Buffet is in a good location that's offers many different foods to chose from at a low price. The food that I ate tasted off/a bit rancid. My friend agreed with me, but my parents who did not get the same dishes thought that the only thing wrong was the lack of flavor. When going back to try... More

We stopped for dinner after touring Burlington. Food was okay. Nothing spectacular. Too many chicken choices. Sushi was fresh and basic. Price was right for the quality. Would go again

We went in on a Sunday, I am not a big eater, and I always dislike buffets for this reason. Sunday's they have a seafood buffet so it is more expensive, we paid more than $50 for 4 people. The food was average, there were only pork egg rolls and spring rolls, no chicken. Deserts were not good at all...... More
