Great Food, Great Customer Service

Great food and great customer service! Worth a 45 minute drive to try it for the first time. Thinking about having my birthday dinner there with my friends and family!

It's Not My Last Visit

Been here few times and find the food above par for a buffet. Service is prompt & friendly, selection for lunch buffet is nice. Really enjoy the dim sum & salt & pepper squid (enjoy seafood). Prices are reasonable for lunch, seating is ample as it was at Ponderosa many years ago. Nice treat once in a while. :)

Service is Rapid and Pleasant

This is my 11-year-old son's favourite restaurant. He loves the speed of service. This is unusual in St. John's :-) He loves the noodles and usually has three plates. A friend who ate from the menu said the food was really good. I try to make healthy choices and this restaurant has at least two dishes with lots of veggies on the buffet. The rest is your typical Chinese restaurant food, full of salt and fried. I am not super keen on this type of Canadianized Chinese food. However for this type of a restaurant, it's a "best in class".

Quick Meal

I have eaten at City Lights on a few occasions. There is plenty of variety. Food is always hot. The display is always full. Staff are friendly and courteous. I like the idea that you don't have to wait around and when done just go to the counter to pay. Great place when you are in for a quick meal with little time to spare.
