This restaurant south of Campbell River offered a nice selection on their smorgasbord buffet. The dishes were replenished quite quickly when getting down, and the food tasted very fresh and hot. There was a bit of a wait to be seated, but well worth it.

Great, as per usual. Nice fresh hot assortment of delicious Chinese Food. Today they had my favourite breaded shrimp. Location is a bit far out but well worth the trip. Lots of free parking. Across the road from the ocean and a park.
