I was warned not to eat here by some old friends who said they thought the place wasn't clean. We tried it anyway, and it always seems clean to me. The buffet has a lot of variety and if you came around lunch or dinner,...More

We arrived quite hungry, but a little dubious. The outside of the building is not much to look at, nor is the inside. However, the service was attentive and efficient. The buffet has a generous number of offerings that were all quite good and fresh....More

Would have given it 5 stars but, there's a limited selection of food to choose from. But the did they have is extremely well prepared. They even have Real Ice Cream, not that milky Suu that comes from a bag. I will definitely come back.

The lunch buffet is the best, great food. This restaurant actually has hard packed ice cream with the buffet; the buffet is good sized too; you won't leave hungry. The restaurant is nice inside. The hot tea is great too.
