I stopped in with colleagues from the area. We didnt have a lot of time, so a buffet seemed like a good idea. We were seated quickly and went up to the buffet. They seem to have one section all Asian style and one kind of hybrid Asian and other, some sushi and a dessert station. I had two plates and liked the variety, although there wasn’t a lot of flavour and they didnt have much in the way of vegetables. Overall, good

You have to wait to be seated, and the waitress we had was very efficient and courteous. The food available was such. that if a super-fussy eater was to eat here, there was sufficient to satisfy their appetite. In addition to the Chinese selection (which was a great variety) there was a large salad area, a Suchi area, a large desert area and a large selection of ice cream in a freezer. This is an all-you-can-eat facility and no one should leave hungry.

The facility was very clean, the ambience was nice anf the price was fair.. I would recommend this Restaurant to anyone.

Arrived for buffet at 1:50 pm. Buffet is scheduled until 2:30. There were a lot of empty spaces in the buffet so I asked if they could replenish some. Server said yes no problem. They did bring out some deep fried chicken wings and that was about all. There were no honey garlic wings, no rice (you could scrape some dried on the bottom of the server), no noodles, and the list continues. Basically what was left was scraps. Another customer asked if they could replenish the lemon pie, they brought out 2 pieces and part of another piece on tin foil plate. The customer actually took a picture of it it was so bad. Word to the wise if you can't go when buffet starts don't go at all. Certainly overpriced for what we received that day. Disgusted. Waitresses were very nice.

We eat at Golden Phoenix at least once a month especially for lunch buffet, there Hot Sour Soup is my favorite my least favorite are the inclusion of western food such as French fries and sausages etc. Selection for lunch is not as comprehensive as their dinner and dinner menu is a little more expensive.....only one bad experience as food was dry and noodles hard....our fault too late into the buffet.
