Not many choices in Lillooet but this is my favourite. Johnny is always pleasant and makes you feel welcome. The buffet tastes decent but I always feel a little gross after. But if you order off the menu it's pretty good food. Have brought many visitors to Lillooet to Totem and they all love it.

Not bad, not great. We had typical Chinese food and an ok burger. The veggies were fresh, tho, and portions were generous which upped it a notch. The owner was kick, really enjoyed him.

Revisited Honest Johnnie's Totem with a bunch of friends. I'm so glad they had the carpet cleaned, I was dreading it. However, I was pleasantly surprised and I will remember the date. We shared a Dinner for 6 and there was plenty to eat. Typical Chinese food North American style. Deep Fried Prawns, Sweet n Sour Pork (boneless), Noodles, Rice,... More

The totem buffet is your typical western Chinese food buffet, so don't expect world class Dim Sum. The food was prepared fresh, and was flavourful. Great family run eatery, with friendly staff.

This is a favorite of locals. Many come here for the lunch buffet. The last time i was there was for a Christmas lunch. The buffet is ok. It is better than the other Chinese buffet in town but still, nothing to rave about. I have never ordered from the menu so I can't comment on that.

For the second time this year we arrived at a hotel to find the restaurant closed with no prior warning when we booked. This time it was Reynolds Hotel in Lilliooet who had not even made any arrangements for breakfast. We were told we could go next door to Totem for dinner. As the only alternative was another Chinese, this... More

We had the chinese food buffet - i had a huge urge for fresh veggies, and was not disappointed! Reasonable prices, friendly server (the owner i believe) - we stopped overnight in Lillooet, were tired and hungry - this fit the bill to fill our bellies!
