We stumbled upon this restaurant because we had a coupon from the Vancouver Island Coupon book for 2-1 buffet. (We live further up north on Vancouver Island.)
The lunch-time selection is limited to: won ton soup, rice, chow mein, spring rolls, s/s boneless, additional meat dish, battered prawns, chicken wings, stir-fried veg./ usual jello and cake squares.
The food was always hot and fresh as they make smaller amounts more often.
I have never been in the evening, so I don't know what other dishes they might include in the buffet.
The lunch is $13.50, but we had the 2-1 coupon, so it was really inexpensive.

The Lunar New Year buffet was fabulous! The staff gracious and the atmosphere festive! What more could you ask? Ahh yes, getting seated even when you don't have a reservation! Yes, that would do it! Even though we arrived early the restaurant was very full and the reservations were booked up. Our wonderful greeter did find us a table quickly so that we could be finished by the time the reservation came in. But, the food was so fantastic! This is our 'go to' place for Chinese buffet and it never disappoints!

We came to try Dragon Yuan after hearing good reviews and recommendations. We love Chinese buffet so that was what we tried. We were a bit disappointed. There was not much selection: they had the usual Chinese buffet standards and they did them all pretty well, but nothing stood out as amazing to justify the higher price than other buffets we've tried. We also didn't love the strange corner table we were seated at in the back of the restaurant.

Next time we visit, we will try ordering off the menu, because the quality of the buffet did not match the high price.

The buffet is consistently good, with a wide variety of selections offered and refilled regularly. My only complaint is the lack of variety of vegetables. It's true that often veggies don't last well in a buffet, though fast food buffets seem to manage it.

Buffet had a nice variety but could have some beef included. Service is not bad, had to remind server of plate we ordered and not received. The place is very tidy and decent food.
