  • Really good food for a bargain price! They even have crab legs on the weekends and your choice of ice cream! The rest of the deserts aren't so great, but the main coarse food is very good! The lemon chicken, chicken on a stick and ribs are to die for, the children are entertained by the large tanks of fish, they'll steam your crab legs if you ask - great bang for the buck! We are regulars, my kids and I love this place!

  • We got the buffet. Except for the soup (which was watery and bland), the food was either cold or lukewarm. Should have walked out at that point. You know how, when you go to a buffet, you look for one or two dishes you're actually going to enjoy and might to get a second helping of. Not a single one of those at Sun Suns. Everything deep deep fried, tasteless, sugary, cold, and clearly not fresh, maybe a couple of days old. Poor selection too. No shrimp, "beef" like rubber, and very fatty chicken. The owner or manager is a mean middle-aged guy who yells at his staff. And they charge for jasmine tea. Who does that in a Chinese restaurant? Brutal. We'll never go back.

  • The new owners continue to drive this Guelph landmark into the ground. Trays of empty food NEVER refilled... food not hot, when food is in the tray its old and crust. Whoever wrote the review below must be a relative of the owners as nothing has changed. Very sad. Worst part - they don't do anything about it...

  • We went for dinner for one night which they promise crab legs! They only put a couple out and not reload at all for an hour :( My friend was luckly or very unlucky to try one. Which she got sick and had tummy troubles for a week.

    I wanted to try but they had none. I complained that they do not reload after promising crab legs. Which I had none. After learning that my lady friend got sick, I feel bad for her but luckly that I did not try it.

    Worst part is they have flies sitting on the deserts so we skipped touch them....

    Food that was hot was cold & cold food was warm. The slice eggs look like they went to mush. They hardly had any items out for a Saturday night prime time of 6pm....

    If you do not want to spend 6 hours on the toilet and love your family then please stay away

  • Folks, I have gone to SunSun for over a decade. The previous owners kept the trays filled with delicious food. The new owners are the WORST! They are trying to economize by cutting back on food. The buffet sits empty for long periods of time, and when they do bring something (like, say battered shrimp), they bring about 4-6 pcs at a time, then everyone rushes to get them. Nope, after 10 years I'll never, ever, EVER go back there again. Huge disappoitment.

  • I am so disappointed.

    For many years, I've come here for the best quality "Chinese" buffet in Guelph.

    Chinese food, tofu items...

    Now, I see soggy french fries and onion rings, battered scallops, and frozen food.

    Unless I hear that the new owners improve their offerings, I won't be back..

  • I've been going to this place for years, whenever I visit Guelph, and it is definitely my favourite Chinese buffet anywhere.

    With the new ownership, things have changed a bit, but the food is still top-notch. The new owner is very friendly and warm, too.

    The hot'n'sour soup tasted a little vinegary at first, but I loved all the generous chunks of tofu in there, and I was won over. The spicy green beans were excellent, and the parsley potato was one of the best (and most unhealthy!) things I have ever tasted! How the hell do they do that.

    The chop suey was nice and crunchy, as were the freshly cooked mixed vegetables, and the curry vermicelli noodles were just right. I also appreciate that they offer up steamed rice as an alternative to the fried rice.

    The one downside was that there was no tofu dish on the buffet. Under the old owners, there were occasionally two different tofu dishes. An eggplant dish would be nice too.

    But I'll be back! This place makes me happy!

  • I have been going to Sun Sun every weekend for 9 yrs. with my daughter and have always paid for an adult and a child. Jan. 21, 2012, I took her there and paid for two adults my daughter is 11, when i enquired about her age they told me adults are 10 and above which is kind of young to be considered an adult. Since the new owners have taken over the food quality has went down - our waitress long hair was down when she leaned over my table, hair should be tied back - their bathrooms were out of toilet paper and the toilets were flooded over - and at the 1st table by the counter - owners table had toys and crayons all over the table and floor. After 9 faithful years I will be taking my daughter somewhere else and will NEVER go back.
