“Overpriced, average food.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2013

Dined here about a year ago. The food is overpriced, average quality and the money can be better spent on a fast food chinese restaurant.

Save your money and try somewhere else.

“Mall Gourmet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2013

Have been here a few times, and although pricey(bill can be upwards $400 TT) for two people without drinks, but on all occasions, the food has been good. Variety of items not on par with other buffets and for the price, this should be better for vegetarians I agree that that the fare could be better. Did have the vegetarian once and was left unsatisfied. However, I did think that the meat selection was food, and the side dishes tasty. Good soup, lots of choices for salad, and I thought the dessert was quite good. Wide variety of ice cream, especially my favourite soursop. I understand the crystals on the food comment, but if the ice cream is frozen solid as happened on one occasion, it will crystallize.
Again, a bit too pricey, staff is a bit stiff as thought they are unsure of their roles, and some just don't know anything about customer service. Decor is very oriental and the music combination makes for a very soothing and appetizing experience.
