My wife and I tried this all-day buffet restaurant for the first time, expecting greasy Chinese food, but the quality of the food was reasonable. The wonton soup was particularly good. As it was rather late in the evening, some food was stale, but they cooked fresh food. I would not call food excellent, but the buffet fills one up... More

We went here last night for dinner. We had never been here before but heard good things. The place was pretty busy. The decor is old looking, yes, but I don't go to a buffet to look at the decor. I want fresh and tasty food. I thought they were good at refilling the food quickly. I thought everything tasted... More

This restaurant has been in Owen Sound for as along as I can remember. It's decor is from the early 80s, a little challenged with being 'clean', would like cleaner washrooms. We had the buffet. They were super busy and had a hard time keeping up thus missed out on some items, some were on the verge of being emty.... More

The owner of the nearby Diamond Motor Inn recommended this establishment when ten of us wanted to order in some Chinese food. We all were totally impressed with the quality and freshness of our selections. Generous portions, top-notch ingredients and careful preparation make the difference. These guys nailed it !

Cleaning is an issue here. Entrance has not been cleaned in ages. Bathrooms are terrible makes me wonder what the kitchen would be like. I no doubt have high standards but cleaning is so important when serving food. Chicken wings where good. We got there an hour and a half before buffet closes and she told me they would not... More

The buffet is very good, however get there early as they tend to run out of some items. They do replenish but slowly. the salad bar is better than it was, but still needs improvement. They have added more desserts which is a plus. Price is good and lunch is cheaper. 10 % off for seniors.

Deep fried junk but it had been sitting there it was soggy deep fried junk. Not a lot of selection for a Chinese buffet. Atmosphere was dated. And felt gross after lunch. Depressing experience

This is a busy place because the food is very good for the price. Large variety of foods well cooked and displayed. Delicious! Come early before the great things are all gone.
