This place has potential if they took the time to put more effort into their cooking and to actually taste what they serve to people. They have a large variety, but lacking in execution and a waste of products. Food handling is questionable. The manager was attentive to address our concerns even to the point of bringing out a fresh plate of lobster for us.
We arrived at dinner time, shortly before 6pm. The place was not busy, for a buffet at dinner time on a Saturday night, this was not a good sign. As we checked out the buffet tables, some of the food looked like it had been sitting out too long. My son had some fried rice, he said it was dry and crunchy like it had be sitting out too long. The manager came by to check on us, and we sent the plate of fried rice with him. His excuse, "there is now fresh rice just put out, the stuff you had a little bit ago was left from lunch..." What a horrible excuse to continue to serve stuff that was left from lunch, 6 hours ago drying up under the heat.
My husband had the lobster, and had to spat it out because it tasted like dish soap. There were all kinds of seafood at one of the steam tables, everything from crab, lobster, snails in shells, shrimp, crayfish, salmon, clams, mussels and oysters on the half shell. I tried the crab legs, they were no good, I picked out a nice big pincher leg, but inside of it was practically hollow with a tiny bit of meat. My aunt had the baked salmon and she said it was decent.
As the evening wore on, more dishes were being replenished. The noodles and vegetables dishes were edible and did taste decent. The sweet sticky rice wrapped in banana leaf was decent.
I ventured over and took a photo of the Sushi table, but did not eat anything. The camera took a better photo than what it looked like up close. The rice in the sushi rolls were on the dry side and the fish, some type of pasty red fish was on top of the California rolls. Nothing was glistening like fresh ahi, everything looked pasty.
The low light of the night was finding a big grasshopper/critter in the washroom stall of the women's washroom. I took a photo of it and show the manager. He said it wasn't a cockroach, only a fighting grasshopper that got into the restaurant from outside.
We will not return to this place, if you decide to try it out, eat at your own risk, you've been forewarned.
