During our stay at Vancouver RV we were looking for a place to eat close by. The Canton Chinese Buffet is across the street, price was good the ffood is outstanding, they keep everything hot fresh and stocked unlike others. King crab, BBQ pork ends, oysters on the half she'll, fried shrimp, and everything in between this is one to check out when your in the Vancouver area, we will definitely be back.

Beware of them charging your credit card more than what you paid for. My bill was 26.35 and i checked my bank statement today to find that they charged my account $33.53. Of course I called and the cashier said she needed to go home to check records of yesterdays transactions. I found that some what odd. Also she said it may have rang up as a tip included but I ALWAYS when going to buffets make sure to cross out the tip section. Why would I tip a all you can eat buffet?
Oh my GOD people! Don't you morons know there 's a freaking SEASON for crab??? Do you honestly think the crab legs will be full and to your 100% expectations all year long? Well they WON'T! During the off season, crab legs will be puny and very empty so GET OVER YOURSELVES! Also...if you need a clean napkin in such a big damn hurry, put some paper ones in your damn pocket before you leave the house. This is an excellent restaurant for the cuisine and the price. A little dingy maybe but excellent food but for the OUT OF SEASON crab legs. Get a grip and get out of line if you don't like it so I can move up in line!

Looks like people either hate it or love it. I love it, along with several of my co-workers. I've never heard anyone personally complain about it, although I've heard complaints about one or two specific items. Like their fried calamari dish is way too salty, or at least it used to be. They may have improved this. You can't beat the variety; there's something for everyone. Even my picky 3 and 6 year old love it. My husband says it's ""okay, nothing special"", but everyone else I know really likes it, and it's often the restaurant of choice among friends and co-workers.
I do think the food is better (fresher) during regular eating times,. But then again, there is the risk of an item running out at the regular times as well, although it's not a long wait until they refill it.
Here is what sucks about the restaurant:
*1 napkin, then you have to run around and ask for more.
* Crabs are 7+ days old + rewarmed i don't know how much times!!!
*People working their always seem tired and depressed, seriously....
*They don't understand English, i mean they do but simple stuff like "where is the bathroom". Once i asked them: is your water filtered, she said "what"? I repeated my self 3 times she said "i don't know what that is" and left.
* They whip of tables and then use the same rag to "wash" the dishes and cups. Gross!!! Although the owner dries a Lexus...not for long...if he keeps on running the business how he is, he's going to loose customers! Also, if you like your plates to pill up, this is the place to come!
My wife and I have been going there for years. We have noticed the quality degregaded over time. As of late we have been going primarily for the crab at the buffet. Much to our shagrin, the crab is obviously re-cycled and we don't care for 'green' crab!!!
Haivng said that, the food which is normally fresh, tasty, and enjoyable has been anything but...stringy, cooked, and re-cooked crab is disheartening at best. They charge a fair price, and our expectations are also fair. The food there lately has been major let down.
Additionaly.....would it kill anyone to provide a clean napkin????? You get one at start of your meal then nada. Try prying open the micro crab legs that are filled with more water than flavor without getting your hands dirty.
My God people wtf....

I don't know why anyone would give this place any bad ratings, unless their just rude and selfish and... well typically people one wouldn't want to deal with anyways. I love going to this place, the waitresses know my face and are always kind to me. Once when I had ordered a meal to go the waitress asked me if I was thirsty and brought me a glass of water while I was waiting for my food.
Their food is very good, not as good as when they had first opened but times are tuff right now and I don't blame them for that. The mood inside is very calming with beautiful asian style decorations. They have a very nice room in the back for parties that my family and I have used once and a while for special occasions. The prices are good, and I just love it when I buy a dinner meal to go, the price is good and the amount of food you walk away with is phenominal! it's been enough to feed me for three days. easily worth a few 7 to 9 bucks.
