I frequented this place when it had just recently changed management a decade ago, and I found it just as good as it was way back then. The selection is outstanding, the quality of the dim sum (especially the siu mai and wrapped sticky rice) certainly equals some of Calgary's dedicated dim sum eateries, and there are some dishes which...

We went their as a group of 5 on Monday. It was fairly busy. The food was alright, the crab was pretty good. It seemed that a lot of the food had been sitting for a while and gets fairly mushy. They did bring out more fresh items as the meal progressed. Now I must say though that the Salt... More

Variety may be the spice of life. Asian Buffet has plenty of that. Recently, they have added more dim sum and sushi items. They have so many dishes we could not sample them all. What the do have and the ones I tried tasted OK for steam table food. One thing I noted was that their washrooms were not very... More

The place is always a little bit crowded. Is very spacious however is always full. The food is ok. For lunch is very good for the price you pay. But, for supper I think is a little bit over priced. The staff are ok and the taste is ok too.

The staff is always friendly and the restaurant seems to be always busy. We went for a Sunday dinner and the selection was better and fresher then a past visit which is a plus. A good deal for the price you pay, and it looks like they are making some improvements to the decor / dinning room.

The most dreadful restaurant I've ever eaten at. For starters the table cloth was filthy, the tables are jammed together with little space to walk between your dirty table and the buffet area. The buffet is large, but lacking any real Asian food... everything is greasy and drenched in sesame oil. There were about 10+ chicken dishes, but none of... More

Meat included large clumps of fat. Squid was burnt. We will... More

A friend and I tried this buffet last night and I'll just say now that I'm over the moon not to have woken up with food poisoning last night. I had seen the bad reviews of this establishment before I went and normally I wouldn't go anywhere with a 2 Star Rating but my friend insisted we try it. The... More
