Jardin Tiki, the review you've all been waiting for!!!

Maximilien | Feb 9, 201308:09 AM     38

Some friends and I decided to get together and have a go at the infamous Jardin Tiki Chinese buffet (5300, sherbrooke east).

We battled the elements, snow, wind and the cold ...

From the plastic Easter Island statue to the dusty dragon with the kitshy ligthing from japanese paper lamps to christmas (island) ligths , you have it all, including a small pond with barely alive turtles!!! (yeah, we saw some of them move!)

The food, do we really have to talk about it ?

It is Chinese buffet central, from chicken with red sauce to sweet sticky overcooked spare-ribs to onion rings with some brown-ish fried rice and unnameable vegetables and the usual non Chinese offerings, pasta, fries, hot-dogs in VH sauce or hot dogs wrapped in bacon ...

The only redeemable good thing are the drinks, while not super-extra-ordinary original, they are good and tasty, in fake coconut, or in real pineapples

Crowd : weird mix of people, some odd couples, some families, a big group of "teens", some retirees; the night started quite empty, but when we left it was relatively full (weather not helping).

$ : cheap, dirt cheap, even with the booze... $40-ish buffet + 2 drinks

Go at your own risk: :-)

Max.
