Lunch buffet is great, many different dishes.
I frequent this place for their lunch buffet, it's consistently good. Dinner has some fantastic options but you have to know what to order, I've had some disappointments. I recommend steamed dumplings, veggie balls with brown sauce (yes, terrible name great dish), spicy mushrooms, seaweed tofu soup. One time I ordered wonton soup with noodles and it had spaghetti in it. Maybe they were out that day but I didn't risk it again. MSG makes me very ill and I've never gotten sick eating here. Good enough for me to keep coming back almost every week.
Great lunch buffet, dinner is also tasty. Conveniently located downtown, so it's within reach for everyone all over Winnipeg. Has no alcohol. Staff is friendly. What else do you need to know?
This place is not sure why they would be veg, asking them question about how they prep there food, they are puzzled with the question. They don't even have low sodium Soya.
Tastless dishes and poor presentation. Its time for a makeover.
This place was a lovely treat. Cute, clean restaurant with a very wide selection. We had the dinner for three and added the fried vegetable balls which were delicious. Friendly service, been to lots of veggie places in Canada and this one is top notch. :)
We liked the quiet of the resto and the very friendly service. Just a short walk from the Louis Riel Hotel where we stayed, so a fien location. Food was so very flavourful and colourful. Plenty rice, vegetable, and high protein (faux meat) choices. Always leave room for their refreshing desserts.
The food is good, but it is very pricey.
Nice staff but not great food. A little on the bland side.
Affinity has a nice atmosphere and is hygenic. The decore is nice.
The food is amazing! I have never tasted better veggie meats any where else.
The employees are very nice people.
We went back, since Delicious (that we wanted to try out) was closed. We ordered Vegetarian Mock Goose, but they didn't have it, so we ordered the Curry Soya Pork with Potato(real salty, the soya chunks smells like chemical, it was labelled spicy but wasn't at all): around 8 CND. The hot and sour soup (shredded young bamboo shoots, mushroom, tomato, a little bit of tofu): around 3 CND and affinity garden noodle (we chose HO FAN for the noodle type ): around 9 CND was good (veg ham, mushroom, ... can't recall what else ... ). All in all: 22.something CND (before gratuity).
Here is our post for our 1st patronage:

Review: We didn't get the chance to try their buffet (since they are closed each Sunday and this coming Monday they will be closed for the day), but we tried their "wonton soup, brocolli, spring roll, tofu / mock pork" combos and they were good. 15.71 CND all in all, and we were full! Their water doesn't smell, which is good! Their mock pork (we believe) is made of mostly dried soya protein, I (the wife) believe, but we agreed they taste just like real pork ) *shivers!* Free plain water (in Singapore, we ate at Original Sin- and the water there was bottled water (maybe) and it cost us 9 SGD just for the water.).
Pros: very reasonably priced, :)! * HUGE PORTIONS! *
Cons: soy sauce has sodium benzoate? (They uses/used Kikkoman- that has benzoate- for the tables.)* *
I have been to Affinity numerous times now and have not once been disappointed. Last night I had the opportunity to go to Affinity again and I tried a few dishes I would like to recommend. Sometimes going to a new restaurant with different options can be intimidating because you don't know which items to choose. If you need some help, here are some of my favorites:
The Veggie Shrimp, (crispy battered bean curd, vegetables and veggie meat, comes with a sweet and spicy sauce)
The Steamed Veggie Fish (exact same constancy as tuna, tastes like real fish and wrapped like sushi)
The Steamed dumplings (veggie filled heaven comes with a ginger sauce that is incredible!)
The only con about this place is there's too many options I have to keep going back in order to try new things!
