  • My husband and I took my two sister in laws to A1 for a buffet dinner one Saturday, and it was AWFUL, the supposed spicy garlic shrimp was just breaded shrimp, the wonton soup noodles were mushy, my one sister in law commented that the strawberry ice cream tasted sour, and when I mentioned this to the cashier upon checkout, she just shrugged and apologized, didn't seem too concerned, and didn't offer any type of discount or anything. We all got sick afterwards, won't be going there anytime soon!

  • I love the food from this place! It always tastes fresh and when I'm there I notice they bring out new food pretty often. Usually the waitresses or waiters are very nice, and they even have great take out.
    Best place to eat unlimited chinese food in windsor!

  • A1 is going down the tubes in food quality and service on Weekdays. Should be 2 Stars . The Chicken was DRY-DRY-DRY. Told the server who spoke to the chef. He admitted that he overcooked the chicken and was sorry. The two servers who were working barely spoke english, but they sure smile a lot :) They never came once to the table to see if everything was okay. Perhaps they knew, can't say for sure. Offered a 10% discount because of the lousy food on check out, which is an insult to me. Will never be back. Just lost the business of a family of 5 who use to eat there once every 2 months on average.

    I must say the Buffet on Friday and Saturday is very good. Have had some very good service. It is unfortunate that the quality of food and service is not the same on weekdays

  • We have been here a few times for lunch buffet. It's pretty good. Saw some customers order off the menu and the portions are very generous.

    Food tastes good and a bargain at less than $10! Used plates get taken away quickly and empty water cups refilled in a timely manner.

    My only real complaint is that the soups are always luke warm.

    We'll be back for sure.

  • I have been to this establishment many, many times over the last three years and have yet to experience bad service or a male waiter to tell you the truth. The service has always been courteous and helpful. The food is excellent both buffet and regular. In fact it is the only chinese buffet in the county which I will go to as the food is always fresh and hot. I highly recommend the spicy garlic shrimp. I have also enjoyed lunch here many times with my school aged daughters where time was an issue. I would call ahead and the food would be served within minutes of us arriving, not to mention that the portions were big enough to provide dinner also. A great restaurant for an extremely hard to please person like myself.

  • Order: buffet , lunch was the #3 and #6 specials.

  • Me and my fiance went for the buffet and it was very good. There was a great selection and it was always fresh. They don't over fill there food items so they are constantly bringing out fresh food. The service was very standard for a buffet experience, they do their job of picking up your dirty dishes and bring you a drink if necessary. We will def. be going back!!

  • This is the freshest Chinese Food I have ever had. Very very tasty and not "runny" like many others. Fast friendly delivery service! Dinner for Four for 46$ and change! You can't go wrong!

  • I had called around for a nice place to have dinner for my family and friends for my birthday.

    I had called this place and reserved a table, communication was not good they quoted a different price on the phone then in person.

    when we arrived a Chinese skinny waiter came to my table, I told him that I was was told I could get my dinner free because my birthday.

    This waiter yeld at me in front of everyone and said I never heard of this, he then ran to the back room.

    he then came back to the table when I was getting my food and yeld at my family and said ok we will give you it this time pointing his finger very aggressively.

    I got to the table and my family was shocked at this behaviour.
    I confronted this clown and told him to not serve us and if he ever pointed his finger in my face I would have knocked him in the head he said this is a business.
    I told him that we where his business and we were customers.

    I had never ever incountered this service ever.

    but the food was ok, I had ask for the manager they said she was not there, but I found out that the manager does not speak or understand english.

    I plan to write to this place to inform them of this customer practice, I will not bring my bussiness to this place again
    bad bad service since we already had some food we made the best of my birthday.

    These people only care about rushing you out, and they keep asking are you done.

    Don't recommend this place

  • The weekend dinner buffet was amazing! Everything was fresh and tasty! I honestly believe it's the best Canadian-Chinese buffet around (I've tried them all). If you're a fan of seafood, BE SURE to try their spicy garlic shrimps! It's fantastic! Also try their general tao's chicken and spicy garlic green beans!

    Pricing is very affordable. There's a very extensive selection on the menu as well, for those who do not want buffet.

    My absolute favourite chinese restaurant! Will go back to again and again!

  • The food was decent, but horrible service. Flies were all over the restaurant, even in my drink. Worst staff I have ever came across.

  • Order: spicy squid, sweet and sour pork, chicken fried rice

Price range is no where near $26-$60 per person so I don't know what this reviewer is talking about. Average I would say is about $10-$15 per person.
