We went here for dinner after a set up for a wedding and we were disappointed. I mean it is your typical Chinese buffet so we were not expecting much but even for that it was disappointing. Food was bland and cold, service was non existent and with only 5 tables taken up and 2 staff on you'd expect better... More

With this Good Buddy location in north Edmonton, they do offer good quality choices for eating Peking Duck. The restaurant is friendly, clean and well managed. A repeat visit is fantastic.

As soon as you walk in, you'll notice the festoon of photos of Martin Yan. Which is a nice way to get your clientele excited for tasty Chinese fare! Unfortunately, that was about as Chinese as it got. Bland, oily and nothing resembling the cuisine I've grown up eating, I couldn't even tell you the dishes we had as they... More

Dropped in for dinner. Large dining area with sunlight. Ordered Peking Style Sweet and Sour Pork Chops which were very good - tender and sweetened just right. Not so luck with our other order of Singapore Fried Noodles. The curry flavor was so weak it tasted like boiled noodles with coloring. Brought it to the attention of the server who... More

My significant other and I brought her cousin and hubby out for supper. We had an excellent dim sum supper including hot and sour soup and shrimp fried rice. The food was delicious and well priced for dim sum. The service was very good as well. I used the bathroom and it was absolutely disgusting. The mess was so bad... More

We had not been here before but friends suggested the restaurant. There was 8 of us so we ordered the meal for 8. This was way too much food dinner for 6 would have been plenty The best part of the whole meal was the wonton soup and appetizer plate. The rest was okay

Their Din Sum is the best in the city and it never stops coming and it never gets boring. If you like Din Sum you have to try the Good Buddy Restaurant. Mac
