Good food, choice of North American and Oriental dining. Eclectic decor includes new landscape paintings on one wall and antique collectibles on another.

This restaurant was the "go to" place from all over 75 years ago for Chinese food. Today when walking in to the place its like taking a step back in time. A person can spend hours looking at all the artifacts and treasures Rainy (the owner) has everywhere and he loves to tell stories. And BTW the food is good... More

We ate here on a stop through Moose Jaw. The location is great, right next to the Tunnels of Moose Jaw. Four of us had the Chinese buffet/smorg. The food is good, but certainly not great. The service was outstanding, however. Friendly, prompt, and responsive.

The charm of the place cannot be overstated. I've been there to breakfast more times than I can count, and it truly feels like a second home. Lovely people, lovely atmosphere and wonderful food.

This restaurant has a full menu as well as a Chinese buffet. The building is very old but well maintained. Their Chinese buffet is exceptional. Canadian food is very good.

We had breakfast at the National Cafe and loved the old counter and chairs, all the antiques and the unique tables. The breakfast was the most reasonably priced breakfast ever. Excellent food and service.
