The take out is always really good. So we decided to go to the buffet at dinner got there @ 4;30 pm. It was a diaster. The food tasted like it was from lunch. The food was very sparse and lukewarm. Very disappointing. The remodelling is good but food at buffet has totally gone wrong. Also the price has gone... More

I can't believe anyone could complain about the food or the service!!! This is by far the best Chinese Buffet in the Okanagan. The best wings I have ever had and the huge prawns without the usual heavy batter, just huge juicy prawns. Squid is awesome too and always fresh and hot!! Never been disappointed and I have eaten there... More

Huge mistake, horrible food and service. Didn't get the drink that I ordered and when I told the waitress she said humpf and walked away. I should have left without paying. Was sick for 2 days after eating the food that I should not have eaten. Wish Penticton had a good Chinese buffet. Wish this place would close.

Girlfriend and I ordered some takeout. 3 dishes. Deep fried prawns ginger beef and chicken chow mein. Delivery was quick everything looked fine. We started eating and I found some staples in the chow mein. I caked the resturant about it. They did nothing. No refund so new dish. Just ignoring the whole thing. Beef was dry as hell. Prawns...

Not all places are open on a Sunday, so we ordered from here. They told us it would be 2 hours if we had it delivered so we pick it up. Went there at the time they recommend and still had to wait a long time. The food was barely warm and bland. The ginger beef was tough. Would not... More
