brunch/lunch buffets, prefer Burnaby or east Vancouver
I am charged with arranging a birthday party for my mother. 25 guests, including 2 pre-school age children. 8 of the guests are over 70. Dad has expressed a preference for a buffet, although "not Chinese buffet".
Has anyone eaten at the Grand Villa Casino or Metrotown Hilton? Other suggestions?
Event is in 2 weeks. Sunday.
Guest count, in the end, was 28, at the River Rock Casino. We were able to book the Chairman's/VIP room, and were comfortably arranged at 4 round tables. Guests all expressed high satisfaction with the space and the food. Even the fussy eaters were happy with the selection, which included: omlette and waffle stations, chilled shellfish, banquet roast beef, various tasty salads, chow mein, 2 dimsum items, eggs benny, breakfast meats, wonton soup, fresh fruits, yogurts, various baked dessert items, and two seemingly gluten free dessert items.
The choice of venue definitely suited our purposes.
I haven't had the Villa's buffet..but I tried their salmon off the menu and it was pretty poor. Clearly frozen, and a fishy taste. The side of grilled vegetables was as bad as you could make them. The salmon I had at Edgewater casino was much better, even though it came all the way from the Atlantic..no buffet there, though.
