I was shocked to read some of the comments that related to the place not being open at times or other communicaton trivia, that lowered the rating of this fantastic eating place. The prices, specially the buffet is very reasonable for tasty and home style cooking of this family run no frills eatery. I love tasty; but not over-spiced or... More

The service is below average. They didn't come to us after they supplied what we ordered. In between, one fellow started vacuuming in between our eating time. Price is competitive, but not much cleanliness, especially the washroom and floor. Not liked.Not customer oriented .

Go for the lunch buffet. Friendly service, extremely accomodating staff. Friendly chef/owner. Not fancy, not formal, not fine dining, but simply one of the best meals you will find. Food can be a little spicy. Very reasonable prices. Kind of out of the way, but well worth the trip. Don't pass this one by.

I've driven past this place at least 50 or 60 times on my way to Pacific Place and managed to get some take out before the lunch rush. There's lots of parking as it's in one of the business strip malls. The main attraction of this place is the lunch buffet. It had a small selection of food mostly chicken,... More

Went to this restaurant 4 times with the family, but it was closed, even though it should have been opened according to their store hours.
