Would definitely not recommend. The food was not very tasty and under seasoned. The pad Thai was almost ok. There are some very good restaurants in Collingwood which would be a better choice.

Decided to drive to Collingwood from Balm Beach (45-50 mins away) took 7 people for Saturday dinner. Unfortunately it was not worth the drive. Extremely hot in the restaurant which caused the ice cream very soft to the point of melting. many of the entree...containers did not have anything in them & were never replenished such as honey garlic ribs, baked mussels with cheese, to name just a few, 2 soups offered Hot & Sour only 1/3 in pot never filled, Wonton soup there were no wontons & only 1/4 of pot never filled with broth, we were there at 7:30 and even though it looked like they were checking , very little was done to fill them up. The womens washroom was disgustingly dirty with no toilet paper, my companion told the staff but when they returned later, nothing was done. Did not look like they were trying to social distance as our table was beside another table filled with 8 people. In past years we have gone here for the dinner buffet and it was very good and much more selection & quality, Too bad , not worth the drive.More

This is a place to enjoy food prepared and delivered with excellent product and under the supervision of Erin, the owner. Even with the restrictions of COVID, this establishment provides Service as well as a quality menu.

Hands down the worst Chinese food I’ve ever had. I can’t believe they actually get away delivering this to people. All the food tasted like freezer burn. The beef with broccoli tasted more like fatty pork. Totally Disappointed.

During COVID and our visit to Collingwood Sept 25-27th 2020 my daughter and I stopped by here. Usually a buffet, but not 2 choices; take out or dine in but order and stay at your table. We stayed and enjoyed our meal. We were the...only diners and it was absolutely fun to have the restaurant all to ourselves! Server had his mask on. We had mask on when go to and fro to the washroom and leaving the restaurant. The food was delicious! We took our time and had a great dining experience! Food was served promptly and tasted amazing. Will come back 😊 Sorry I only saved 1 picture the rest were on my Instagram story, oops!More

Very good food. Great service. The food was hot, presented well and tasty. Would go there again! Very good variety of choices considering the buffet was closed.

Wow !! I'm really impressed with the EXCELLENT QUALITY OF THE FOOD but they went the extra distance to DELIVER to us in the BLUE MOUNTAINS. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SERVICE !! They certainly went the distance to make our isolation a little better...!!More

Just left from a great dinner at the Crystal Buffet. Chinese food and sushi was great. Roast beef, gravy and mashed...not the best but edible. Small crab legs, but again, they tasted good. Lots of desserts to choose from including a chocolate fountain. They were...constantly refilling trays etc. We found the price a little high (2 adults, 1 under 12 and 2 soft drinks) $85 plus tip. But, it was a great night off from cookingMore
