Chowhounds !!!! Any suggestions for "All you can eat " Chinese Restos (not buffet style, but buffet delivered to your table ) in the West Island ??? I was thinking of the Imperial Palace on Du Barry off St.Charles in Kirkland . Thanks Hounds,
I went there with my wife to celebrate my friend's 50th birthday. There was a set fixed menu at $36 per person + a 17% automatic group rate service charge . The food at best was was average !!! On top of this, when I got my bill of 95.02 I gave my waiter a $100 and he asked if "Would I like change ???" and I said yes and to this point he is still delivering me my change !!! He said he will be right back (I figure a restaurant of this caliber the waiters would have change) . After waiting about 10 minutes and no sign of my waiter, with my friends waiting for me I took it as a loss !!! As a result, my waiter received 23.9% tip for an average service !!!! Very displeased with this restaurant !!!!
One word; "YECH !!! " My wife and I were there about 3 Wednesdays ago at about 6:15pm and we were the only customers. I had a hot chicken sandwich with mashed potatoes and my wife had fried chicken. My Hot chicken sandwich and peas were cold !!! The mashed potatoes were imitation and tasted like crap !!!! My wife's chicken was too salty . The meal was served with disposable plates with matching plastic cutlery . I doubt this restaurant will celebrate it's first anniversary !!! Do yourself a favour drive down the street and go to Cote St Luc BBQ (4360 Boulevard des Sources )for almost the same buck, a far better chicken !!! -Rob
I agree, "What's so great about Schwartz's ?" If you like sitting at a table sharing with total strangers (which doesn't bother me but), when the lady (who you don't know) puts ketchup on your fries(no potato latkes , or a waiter brings your drink with his fingers in the glass !!! Go to Schwartz's The Main across the street is so much better (No sharing tables, with potato latkes ) !!!
Hi Chowhounders again, Thanks for your recommendations The Snowpea and SKYMTL, Those sound great, however anything in the "cheap side" because I don't want my friends and family to declare bankruptcy after my celebration . Also, a friend suggested maybe a "BYOB" after all the bar tab can be quite expensive .
