We came in for a lunch buffet, as was advertized on the web site, but there was no buffet at all. The restaraunts was practically empty. Only one server/cashier in the whole establishment. No chopsticks, water brought only upon request. Food was OK, but overpriced....Debit machines demanded minimum tip of 15% with three increments to 20-25-30%. I would call it a dying place.More

Bland and chewy Chinese food and is way over priced. Portion size was fine. Disappointing. If someone in Vernon provided average quality and average priced Chinese food places like this would be history.

We ordered steamed pork spareribs and black bean sauce and it was all just pork fat. The house special chop suey was ok but the barbecued fried rice was dry and the pork was hard as a rock. We ate what we could and threw...the rest away. This is not something we normally do. It was terrible.More

We ordered take-out on a whim while passing through Vernon and were blown away by the food. We had basics like the house special fried rice, sweet and sour pork and beef and broccoli but it was delicious. The rice had significant portions of shrimp,...pork and chicken. We tried to go back the next day but they’re currently closed for lunch due to Covid-19. So, three months later, we timed our drive back through Vernon to ensure we got to eat the SSP again. And, it was delicious AGAIN. The restaurant is large and clean and the service attentive. Food came out quickly and hot. Highly recommend this spot. They advertise they don’t use MSG and, unlike other times we’ve binged on Chinese food, we felt full but light after the meal.More

Ordered food for take out. The egg rolls were awful, I'm guessing they were deep fried from frozen, certainly what they looked and tasted like, very flat and very little filling and the crust was not even fully cooked through. The almond chicken was dusted...with what appeared to be almond dust, definitely not an almond in the entire package. The chicken chow mien passed but was bland , and sweet and sour pork was just your run of the mill average dish. The biggest disappointment was the egg roll and almond chicken. Will never order from here again, we assumed that because they had been in business for so long that the food would be better.More

No matter having the buffet or ordering from the menu the food is excellent. Great staff as well. The buffet as well attended to, fresh food being added continuously keeping up with the demand of customers dining. The owners take pride in their restaurant and...it definitely shows.More

I guess the people of Vernon are content8 with sub-par dining experiences; I cannot understand how Kiki Gardens has so many awards displayed on their front wall and continue to be in business. I I I I guess the people of Vernon are content with...sub-par dining experiences; I cannot understand how Kiki Gardens can have so many awards displayed on their front wall and still be in business. Here's why: The premises is dated and tired and needs a refresh. The service is adequate but not stellar. The selection at this buffet is meager at best. And the food is horrible. The best offering that I could stomach was the canned peaches and ice cream. Everything else was barely edible and truly unpalatable. Case in point: the fried rice was dry and tasteless, the noodles equally bland, the deep fried prawns more batter than flesh, the sweet and sour pork really little pieces of tough meat completely drowning in a too sweet syrupy viscous glob. I could go on but you get the point. In conclusion, this is not Chinese cuisine in the slightest; it is what uninformed Euro-Canadians in the interior of BC believe Chinese cuisine should be. But even using that altered lens to rate this dining experience, Kiki Gardens falls well short of its competition. A generous 1 star.More

As part of a Canadian Rockies tour with a Chinese tour group I had the pleasure of dining at many Chinese restaurants in BC and Alberta. Kiki Gardens Restaurant in Vernon BC was by far the best. Wide selection of traditional Chinese dishes including the...best breaded shrimp ever tasted. I rarely go back for seconds but with this dish I went for thirds.More

Never been in on any trip to Vernon. This time we thought to give a try to the buffet. As I titled the review, i found myself thinking it was not fancy, but certainly comfort food. They hit all the notes of a Chinese takeout...in the offerings - so you feel just like when you sit down with a plate in front of the TV. Continually tidying up and refreshing the items. Pleasant place to have a meal at a very affordable price.More

This used to be my favorite Asian restaurant in Vernon, but not anymore. They have jacked up their prices so high that it's not affordable anymore. If you want food delivered it's $7.00 for that! And they messed up our last take out order too....Not very happy with the serving staff either. Too bad it's gone so far downhill. ☹More
