This restaurant caters to all tastes, from the north-American penchant for fried chicken balls with strange coloured sauces to beautiful stir-fried vegetable dishes. We have never done the buffet, preferring to order from the menu. We are never disappointed. I love the hot and sour soup and could eat buckets of that alone! Any of the meat and vegetable dishes will be pleasing. Last time, we had the beef in black bean sauce and there were plenty of fresh vegetables in it; also the tai pan chicken, a sizzling platter with different fresh vegetables. The service is always good and efficient. This restaurant is well worth the dirve.

Located 15 mins south of the city this is a large Chinese restaurant with both Buffet and Menu options. Service is good, but can be very busy on weekends. Buffet has varied items from soups to simple desserts. Some spicy items.
Although children get a discount it's still pricey for what youngsters usually eat.

Stopped here for dinner at the recommendation of family. It is the atypical chinese american buffet except for the multiple versions of shrimp available at the buffet table.Quality of all offerings was good and with the so much shrimp for under $20 per adult you can't go wrong.

So, finally we make the decision to make the drive out to Campbell River to check out the Driftwood Restaurant. I checked their hours of operation and they were open today, like all the other days listed, from 11:30 until 9:00. NOT SO! After a 1/2 hour drive from Royston we were so disappointed to find the place CLOSED:( with a "sorry for any inconvenience" hung in the window.
Grrrrrrrrr..........

My wife and I tried this buffet over the August long weekend. We got to the lunch buffet with an hour and a half remaining and about a quarter of the items were out and they didn't replace them unless asked. The wonton soup was good and the shanghai style chow mein was tasty. The value was decent at $13 per person. I suggest getting here early for lunch unless you want to specifically ask for the items they have run out of.
