They may not have a huge buffet but there is enough to make you stuffed and the waitresses make you feel like family

Worst food buffet in Barrie!! Eat at Mcdonalds, less risk. I went into the buffet only to find a horrible selection of food that had been sitting out for hours! COLD HARD FOOD that should not have been out for people to eat!

This is a very nice Chinese restaurant. The Buffet is ample but not huge. The food is very tasty and varied--the sauces are also good. The Desert area is very good also.

We had dinner for 3. We got it to go. Great service, but very bland food. Will try somewhere else next year.
