  • My review is about the Imperial Buffet on 3120 Dixie Rd Mississauga, Ontario.This is a wonderful place to be. I would rate this place a 4 out of 5.

    Imperial Buffet has a very distinctive look to it. On the outside it is a very big building, as soon as you enter there are many different kinds of designs such as mosaics of colourful glass, different symbols of different styles of art etc. Imperial is a place where east meets west, they have authentic artworks from Asia and up to date north american artworks that is suitable for a lot of people.These designs give a certain welcoming feeling. They also have music that compliments all their artworks, it has a gentle calming sound to it that gives a delightful atmosphere.

    Imperial Buffet is a place where people who don’t want to stay in one restaurant limited to a specific menu can go to.This place is for people who like to mix and match what they have on their plate and like to explore. They have a wild variety of asian food and normal food that north americans eat on a daily basis, they also have a massive selection of desserts for those with massive sweet tooth.

    Lastly Imperial Buffet has good services, I wouldn’t say that Imperial had awesome services but they do have a group of friendly staff, who always have smiles on their face and are always polite. One thing i would change is that there are a lot of staff working there so instead of letting the plates pile up on the table, they should look around more carefully.

    In all, you can see why i have given Imperial a 4 out of 5. They are great hosts; they have varieties of food, beautiful art works and decoration, beautiful enough to entertain your entire time there.

  • Went on a weekday night. $20 per person. Not as bad as I thought. I was hoping that they had duck though. That would have been really nice then. Didn't eat too much of their hot food because I was there for the crab legs. The dessert however was pretty nice ( regular buffet nice, not special dessert place nice). They have good variety of desserts and don't taste too nasty like the desserts in some other Chinese buffet. The service is pretty okay, no complain at all.

  • I always have come back to Imperial Buffet ever since the first time I tried it. The dishes are delicious and unique. Where else do you find oysters in a Chinese buffet? Imperial buffet also has prime rib, lamb, sushi, crab legs and other dishes that distinguish themselves from other buffets such as mandarin. They also have all the essentials in a Chinese buffet such as chicken wings, noodles, fried rice etc. They replace their food about every 15-20 minutes so you always have fresh food. They have good quality food and delicious dishes.
    The service isn't the best service, mainly because the waiters and waitresses don't speak english too well or they're too busy. The manager is very nice to everyone and always has a big smile.
    The restaurant is very clean and plain, I love the way the restaurant is set up because all the food is in the middle.
    Overall Imperial Buffet stands out from all the other buffets because of the range of food they have.

  • Order: Fresh oysters, crab legs, prime rib, lamb, crepes, waffles, sushi, chicken wings, fried rice etc.

  • My parents and my brother went there last night to celebrate my brother's birthday. They had the unfortunate experience with the "supervisor" . They were merely asking if there is a birthday special and if they could use their coupon along with it. After the 'supervisor' declined, my dad agreed and asked to be seated - fully prepared to pay the full price as advised. YET the 'supervisor' kept yammering on and on about how "ridiculous it was for my dad to think that he can get 3 meals for the price of 1!!!" She then told them to "GET OUT" and that they "DO NOT NEED THEIR MONEY" This OCCURED INSIDE the restaurant whilst other people watched! --- HUMILIATING my family in front of a restaurant full of people! SHE MADE THEM LOOK LIKE POOR PEOPLE WHO CAN'T PAY FOR THEIR MEAL!!!! We are NOT squatters looking for a free meal and we did NOT appreciate being treated like second class citizens!!!
    Half the staff can't even speak English .Food is not that great - you're better off going to Mandarin.

  • I always use a coupon going here (BOGO) which ends up as about $25 for dinner for two people! It is not very busy there during the week at dinner time, no lines & they don't run out of stuff. I eat a lot of the king crab legs, they are awesome! LOTS of variety in desserts, cut fruit is always fresh. Typical Chinese food for rest of buffet and pretty good! Would recommend & return for sure.

  • Order: Little of everything, Crab legs

  • I went to the Imperial buffet yesterday with a friend and found a nice sized house fly mixed in with my crab and stirfry. It made us both ill and we told the server. He offered us two free drinks for the trouble. We were not too pleased and then we ordered the two drinks. He came back and said the manager told him it could only be two non alcoholic drinks from the menu. We ordered two lemonades for $5.00 and didn't drink them and left. Never again. Filthy .

  • Order: crab, sweet and sour dishes, shrimp, salads, sushi, beef and others

  • This buffet is clean, has a nice environment and good fresh food. I've read previous reviews, but every time I went, the food was well prepared. I especially enjoyed the garlic shrimp (I think it is in a Chinese style garlic sauce of some sort) which tasted fresh and delicious! The size of the shrimp seems quite large compared to what other buffets offer. I also found the crepes & fresh cream very nice. :) The service is prompt though I wish they would not rush you to eat sometimes since there is a 1.5hour limit. If you are with a lot of people, it's difficult to meet that time and a little uncomfortable when waiters rush you by giving the bill early and frequently giving reminders about time. I suppose this was due to the large amount of customers since it was a Saturday. Overall, I recommend Imperial Buffet!

  • Order: garlic shrimp, Chinese style chicken & corn soup, tempura shrimp, crepes & fresh cream etc.

  • Visited this restaurant March 31/2010 6:00 PM for my wife's birthday. First impression was that we were in a cafeteria rather then in a restaurant. Location was not in the best part of town and in a really run down mall. Buffet had quite a selection but none of us found any of the dishes exceptionally good. I had a look at the roast beef but was not brave enough to try it. Some dishes were discontinued at around 7:30 since I guess there weren't enough customers.
    Absolutely no comparison to the Mandarin Buffet, and it costs the same. Mandarin restaurant setup is much nicer and food selection and quality cannot be beat I guess since the restaurant is always full and they have the volume of customers to always keep the food fresh and the buffet frequently replenished.
    My daugher was really excited about the chocolate fountain but of course it was not on since it's only operational on weekends.
    Will not be returning and not recommend to friends either.
    No need to dress up there most of the customers are in jeans or sweatpants.

  • We took our parents there for their 60th Wedding Anniversary. My Father is a very picky eater and it is very hard to get him to go anywhere. There was such a selection in everything from meats, fish, vegetables, noodles, desserts, salads, etc. The food tasted great! This by far has the Mandarin beat hands down. As well as those other places that we like to call 'cheap chinese' - well lets just say you get what you pay for. Our experience at the Imperial Buffet was a great one. I am coming back tomorrow to bring my aunt for brunch for her birthday. Thank you Imperial. :o)
