Its a pig fest many rooms in an hexagon shape. People rushing to and fro into the central buffet area. Cafereria style rooms. Food is excellent but the way a thousand or so people are warehoused in there spoils the mood mostly. I prefer al a cart . When I am on the mood to struggle to get the wide... More

I've been eating here at least 5-10 times a year since it first opened in Ajax many years ago. I have written several great reviews for this place over the years and recommended this place to many family & friends. We have had several family events here over the years. The food has always been great and it was a... More

Went around 7:45 pm for dinner with family on Wednesday. Majority of the food, very little quantity in the server trays and cold. Did not enjoy the food at all. Waiters no smile and very ride. They still had 20 minutes to close and we were having dessert but got reminded by two unpleasant waiters that we are closing shortly.... More

Last time I was there it was for an early dinner (around 5:30pm). Food was barely out, not very hot and not fresh. I will not return.

I used to go to the Imperial Buffet in Ajax on occasion with family. While it was decent in the past, my most recent visit was the first time in years I made a complaint at a restaurant. Not only did the new management jack the prices (now $30/person during weekends), but the food and service quality went down the... More

Sometimes cold, frequently empty service areas. Went there tonight to try again. Thankful for the 241 coupon because I can't... More

We've been here at least a dozen times, and for a while it looked like the restaurant was getting better, it seems to be as bad as when we first visited. On this Sunday lunch the restaurant was barely half full (not a good sign). While checking out the buffet I noticed that the selection was not as good as... More

After getting a "buy one dinner, get one free" coupon from the Imperial Buffet in the mail, we decided to taste test the weekend menu of this restaurant for comparison to similar establishments. Upon presenting the coupon before being seated, we were advised that the payment had to be in cash. The establishment felt very basic,but clean, no table cloth,... More
