This buffet has a lot of Chinese dishes. Salads and American dishes are available also. Nice desserts. Forget the ice cream.

We ate there last evening, again at the recommendation of fellow Richmond residents. First off, it's terribly expensive $39.95, for the buffet on weekends. Weekday day pricing is more reasonable $27.95. However for the quality of the food, both prices are inflated. Most of what we selected was quite obviously frozen (most specifically the seafood). The shrimp were flavourless, the... More

At first we thought the buffet was okay but not worth the price you pay. We've come to understand that that's just how Richmond is-it's generally overpriced everywhere. In comparison to other places, the buffet is actually very affordable and good for what you pay. There's lots of options at dinner, and great good for buffet standards. Seems very clean,... More
