Family visited for dinner. Was really looking forward to Chinese and unfortunately we left feeling underwhelmed and disappointed. The service was good and friendly, however the food was bland. The portion sizes off the menu seem to be smaller compared to the past.The smorgasbord offered different choices. The seats in the booth need the be reupholstered as it had big rips. The inside could use some update to refreshed the space.

The dishes were pretty fresh, but not a huge selection. It was OK, but the table was sticky - as were the condiment containers. The whole place needs a good clean up!

We've been driving by for years, looked good and we thought we'd give it a try. Should have left when we saw how dead it was. Very limited choices in the buffet because it was so quiet. What was available wasn't very fresh, scraping bottom of pans. My favorite is chow mein but they only had plain chow mein, looked like it had onions in it. Very bland. I always have won ton soup, it was in an open pot lower than the buffet on the end, I didnt think it was a very sanitary location as anyone walking could accidently drop something in it. I lifted the ladle and it looked like broken over cooked won ton so I passed. The buffet was decently priced except for the fact the food wasn't good.

Welllllllll......being a huge connoisseur of Chinese food especially in Port Alberni, Nanaimo, Victoria and Lower Mainland. Let me you there's NOWHERE in Port for good Chinese food.

The Golden Dragon used to be alright uptown, moved to Alberni was good, they sold it now it's just BLECH!!! Tried it again, don't ask me why!..... and the deep fried prawns had the black intestinal tract still attached on every prawn. Greasy, tasteless, just awful. Used to go there quite often, sometimes daily, bidaily basis, now YUCK!

Chopsticks, Golden Dragon and Dollar House were so good in their day....and Wei's in Naniamo, few places in Victoria but don't expect anything at all like that here. It used to be packed all the time, that there was a lineup out the doors. Not now. Smorgasbord is just gross... pass on the whole restaurant.

But the owners are nice!...sorry feel bad now but don't go!

The smorgasbord is terrific. A lot of choices for everyone. And if you want individual dishes there is a huge selection from the menu. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We went at lunch time and had the smorg. Definitely ate our fill.
