So Spoonful happens to own a number of AYCE buffet restaurants under their belt. I've been to this location in Brampton two times before and we enjoyed both visits so when my in-laws came in from out-of-town we thought we would treat them here.
It started off with the four of us waiting at the front counter for 5 minutes. No one was there. I mean no one. It's noon time on a weekday so possibly they might have been busy? So I walked into the hallway and someone finally met me halfway to seat us. I'm still thinking at this point that they must be very busy and that their large seating area is full. When we were seated, I took a quick look around. There were only 10 people in the eating area. Just 10!
The Service: Well the last paragraph sort of sums it all up but I wanted to add that the servers don’t clear your plates quick enough. It’s not nice to stack your own plates and wave a server over once you finally made eye contact.
The Food: Presentation of food is nicely laid out. Grilled and cooked food in the back, apps on the right, and an entire dessert area on the left. I give them points for their dessert station. There are single stations that hold different types of candies. They also have a carousel that holds several tubs of ice cream that is really cool but just beware that you have to wait until a staff member is available to serve you.
The apps: Lots of choices from salads, fruit, and shrimps packed on ice. Pretty standard like most AYCE buffets where you have to get your own food.
Grill/Cooked food: I have a big issue with this part. Most of the food I wanted were less than half full almost the whole part of my lunch and it had been untouched so it makes me wonder just how long the food had been sitting there. The grilled food had only about 2 or 3 pieces of each type of food baking underneath the hot lamps. It's almost as if you're biting into beef jerky. The sushi and maki tastes fine BUT when they post a sign that you are limited to taking only a few pieces at a time really annoys me. Besides, could someone tell me how the heck I’m supposed to enjoy sushi if I can’t dip it into the soy sauce??? (shaking my head!)
Unless I’m absolutely desperate, I will not return back to Spoonful.
