If you have ever been to a Mandarin Buffet location, you already know pretty much what to expect at this restaurant. A dozen hot dishes, including roast chicken, sweet and sour pork, spicy chicken and vegetable, bbq sliced pork and/or ribs, fried chicken wings, beef with broccoli, carved corned beef, fried shrimp, perl and eat shrimp, chicken curry, extensive salad bar, sushi bar, two soups, grilled steak and chicken, potsticker dumplings, sushi bar, big dessert section and a dozen flavours of ice cream and sherbet.

I have been dining here regularly for years, and the hosts/hostesses and servers treat me as if I were family or an old friend. The service is always friendly and efficient, with plates cleared very promptly and beverages refilled frequently.

The weekday lunch is the best deal, with almost as extensive selection as dinners (minus things like crab legs or prime rib), but somewhat less expensive. The current base price for weekday lunch is $16.95, plus tax and tip, and for the food quality and selection and quality of service, I think it is hard to beat that. Weekend prices are higher, but also feature premium food additions. I have never failed to enjoy my meals here, and always get good value for the price.

Of our week plus vacation traveling all over Ohio, Niagara Falls & Toronto, this was the best service we experienced, hands down. At a buffet restaurant! Seriously, they were so nice, accommodating, communicative and friendly!

Great variety of items on the buffet....amazing dessert selection, small sushi selection but tons of hot food items.

The place is nice and clean but very dated. It has a big dining area and a reasonable variety of food. Everything tasted fresh and full of flavour. The wait staff were all very friendly and efficient. The waiting area is cute and has a tiny fish pond. I did not come with high expectations and did not leave disappointed; even somewhat pleasantly surprised.

Amazing for a Chinese restaurant, so little actually Chinese. I enjoyed lemon marang pie, and excellent ice cream, but I enjoy Chinese food so much that I was disappointed.
