The current (2016) building was probably built in 1979 to house the Alexis Dining Lounge. Alexis opened in 1979 and lasted until the late 1980s sometime. According to a former Britannia resident Alexis was owned by the same family that had owned the El Toro Restaurant and Pizzeria at Britannia Plaza which seems to have closed about 1979, so perhaps they were “upgrading.”

After Alexis closed the building was occupied by a series of oriental style buffet restaurants, some lasting years, others only months. These included (in not much order):

bankruptcy-buffetMoonlight Club and Lounge  & Easy Cook   ~ 2015
Fu River Buffet   ~ 2014
Mosaic Carling Buffet   ~ 2012
Carling Wok Buffet  ~ 2009
Dynasty International Buffet
Tansy Buffet

In 2016 the Moonlight Club and Lounge  closed and it looks like a Dymon Storage will be using the site.
