Christmas Dinner Spectacular at Dragon Pearl Buffet (Cash Only) + Gift Exchange

While the Dragon Pearl Buffet is not a theatre, the décor makes a great setting for one. All the furniture is made from ancient ship wood and the place has the setting for a Chinese Emperor. The elongated chair and red decoration throughout the lofty space gives it an appearance that would do well in the most elegant of castles. 

The food here is great too, so come with a big appetite. Some of the highlights of the buffet include:

Roasted Beef

Baby Beef Short Ribs

B.B.Q Spare Ribs

Peking duck

Head Lettuce Wrap

Sashimi

Salty & Spicy Shrimp

Tempura Jumbo Shrimps

Mussel with Black Bean Sauce

Stir Fried Baby Shrimp

Fish Filet & Mango Coconut Sauce

Fresh Salmon with Teriyaki sauce

Pad Thai

Sushi

Many kinds of B.B.Q Foods

Half a tasty lobster

In addition, there are several other Chinese dishes, dumplings, homemade noodles, a salad bar, and an amazing selection of desserts.

The address of the restaurant is:

Dragon Pearl Buffet

Buffet Price:

There is a special buffet price for our group of $25.56 per person plus tax and tip (comes out to $34 per person). This price includes tea and soft drinks and a half lobster. This must be paid in CASH.

Cash Only:

The total of price of $34 (includes tax and tip) for the buffet is CASH ONLY. If you do not bring cash, you must go to a bank machine and get cash. If anyone tries to pay by a credit card, the restaurant will charge the entire group $1 more per person, so please bring cash.

Gift exchange (gift draw):

Everyone should please bring a wrapped gift valued under $10. All gifts will be put in one pile. Once you bring your gift, you will pick a number out of a hat. When we exchange gifts, people will go to the gift table in the order of the number they draw and pick a gift from the table. Gift “stealing” will not be part of the gift exchange.

What is I don’t want to participate in the gift exchange?

You will not be given a number to draw a gift from the gift table if you don’t bring a gift for the gift exchange. So in other words, if you don’t want to participate in the gift exchange, you do not have to. But you will miss all the fun if you don’t participate.

TTC Directions:

Subway to York Mills. Then take 95 York Mills bus east to the restaurant. The buses run about every 11 minutes from York Mills station. The restaurant is just before you reach Don Mills Road in a shopping complex. If you reach Don Mills Road, turn around and go back a few blocks.

    A special thanks to everyone who came tonight despite all the bad weather. This was a really nice event. The food and service was excellent and great company for a Christmas dinner. I really liked the prime rib and the chocolate cake was unbelievably moist. All the dishes were great, so many choices I couldn't possibly try everyone. All the ones I had though were terrific.

    Lobster, Peking duck, ribs, and roast beef - this will be an awesome dinner. The gift exchange is always a lot of fun too. I'm really glad Dragon Pearl was able to give us a large space because around holiday time on a Saturday night, this place will be packed.
