Just read that terrible review! We've made Yangming our buffet of choice in Ottawa for about 10 years now. It's not gourmet food and we do like to eat and cook fresh, rustic and gourmet food but sometimes we just want
Worse Chinese restaurant EVER!!! Out of 9 adults and 2 kids for my nephew's birthday party, a total of ZERO people had a positive experience here!!
Here's a few reasons why...
My dad ordered a Coors Light which everyone knows has white mountains on it and turn blue when cold!! This one was still white and you could tell it had been in the fridge only minutes before being served! Anyways, my dad calls the waitress back and explains it to her and she actually reaches for the bottle and the glass and says" feels cold to me" and leaves!!
My mom got flat gingerale!!
Egg rolls and chicken balls were both refried, the waitress even said they use the leftovers from the lunch service for dinner!!! DISGUSTING!!
I asked her if the egg rolls and chicken balls are made fresh or store bought and she replied " I'm not sure " REALLY???
And to top it off!!! I went for ice cream and I opened the lid of the cooling unit where the ice cream bins are kept and there was so much condensation dripping!!! The " ice cream " had the consistency of yogurt!! If I had dropped the spoon into the ice cream... It would have sank!!!
Worse experience ever!! Absolutely not worth 40.44$ for a buffet for 2 at this restaurant, we left 40.45$ on the table and I consider that generous for a meal that should of been free!
The best part of the meal was an ice cream Cake for my nephew's birthday that wasn't on this restaurant's menu but from DQ down the road!
Good food overall, clean restaurant. Too bad they got rid of the cooked, unpeeled shrimp dish. That was the only thing available that wasn't either battered or deep fried. But for $11, it's still not bad.
I agree with most of what people have said about Yangming Buffet. Tremendous selection, tasty good, and if my stomach was bigger, a reason to return for 5th and 6th servings. ) The downside - like clockwork, about half hour to an hour after I eat there, it's straight to porcelain throne to lay waste to all the goodies that I consumed. Great things about Chinese food, wait another half hour and you'll want more.
i went there on saturday. the place was packed. i have to wait 20 min in order to get my table. i like the crab legs, the prime rib. my favorite dish was the chicken with black bean sauce. delicious! also they have a huge selection of desserts, like baklava is good. it was worthy to wait that 20 mins. sure go back again!
Great Buffet! Sushi is good, Sashimi is yummi, Crab legs, Prime Rib, Shrimp,
Soups, Chicken with Black Bean are all good. Good selection of well prepared
dishes. There is a small grill where you can cook your prime rib a bit
further to get medium or well done. Great service at a fair price.
Amazing food!!! Best chinese buffet in ottawa!!!!!
