We went there for dinner because the restaurant in our hotel was closed for maintance, we checked out the Buffet, and most of the hot dishes were empty. We chose from the menu, I thought it was a bit pricey, the Ginger Beef was very tasty, but more onion than beef for $13.99. Chop Suey, was pretty much cabbage.
It was very clean, and our waitress was so pleasant, and overall it was a very pleasant meal. I would not hesitate to suggest this restaurant to a friend or family.

Lots of food but most of it tasted all the same. Not much flavour. It was really Kind of disappointing. With an increase in price it should at least taste good.

The chicken balls were all greasy.

very disappointind visit.went to dons because of some of the reviews i read.if i had my time back i would have went to mary browns.buffet started at 5 we got there at 5.05.the first time there. when i walked in the door and saw the size of the buffet that was disppointing enough until we picked up our food.
the rice/noodles/and chicken balls were all cold. the only thing that was hot was the spring rolls..
for 15.99 didnt even get a complimentary tea or coffee. the first time i went to a buffet and didnt have a sweats bar or dessert bar unless you ordered it and payed extra.will never eat there again.i would suggest restaurant 99 over dons any day of the week.
