“Plenty of choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

It is a buffet and you were spoilt for choice I would have liked a little explanation as to the food contents I was very interested in the Arab food as it was so different and I felt that it was an imposition to ask the chefs who were busy replenishing the food what the contents was but they did not seem to mind my asking questions

“Hospitable and Friendly Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

My husband and I finally decided to try the restaurant. I find the food arrangements in each section neatly done. Ambiance is also nice as there is natural light. Each and every staff are really friendly and that's where we enjoyed our lunch most. Selection of food is good, though I didn't find the salad selection much of a variety. I was a bit disappointed when I went to the grilling section when they told me beef was not avaialble, however, I saw a small piece of beef on the grill and the lady said, it is for the child of their long staying guest. But then, when I went back to take my grilled chicken, she added a piece of beef on my plate. I was happy. Good food and warm hospitality of staff make it a perfect meal. In some places, food may be great but staff are rude, that ruins everything. We will definitely come back for breakfast or dinner.
I like the chocolate fondue. :)
