Best Z, Toronto, ON

I'd read an article about this restaurant in the Toronto Star a couple months ago and have been meaning to try it. Today was the day!

It's a buffet with about 20 items. A small container costs $5.99 and a large container costs $6.99. You can fill it with WHATEVER you want as long as the lid closes. I filled mine with veggie rice, black bean beef, sweet and sour pork, General Tao chicken, a couple wings and a couple honey garlic ribs. I had lots of food and there was still room for the lid to close.

I tried a bit of it all and left a lot. The food isn't very good. The quality is poor and nothing tastes like it was supposed to. The black bean beef, wings and ribs were blah and the pork and chicken were sickeningly sweet ... the veggie rice was the best thing. Everything had a funky texture and was kind of cold.

If I was ranking this on quantity, it would be 5/5 ... you can jam a lot of food in the large container!

But ranking it for quality, I've got to give it 1/5.

In this case, you get what you pay for.

I won't be back.
