Large and inviting setting serving mostly buffet style meals. Slow service, average food which in my opinion made for a very forgettable experience.

From there you're ushered to your table with it a white starched tabled cloth and polished silver cutlery. The buffet is quite a spread, fresh and... More

Ribs, chicken wings, fresh roast chicken (with a guy there to cut you exactly the piece you want), spit roasted lamb, mash potatoes, steamed rice, savory... More

The restaurant has to be seen to be believed. Superbly opulent surroundings, far too good for a buffet restaurant. Food was good though, great choice, with an outdoor barbeque.
