The restaurant serves Asian - Oriental food which was really decent. The spread was good infact a bit too much and desserts were OK. Atmosphere was also nice. The lunch buffet was really reasonable at around € 25 per person.

Very much delicious meals to chose from. Buffet costs (weekend) approx. 27 Euro a person. Great deal. Great ambiente. Nice service. The best restaurant in 2 weeks travel as a tourist. First time we felt not be lightened from our money. Great.

There should be nothing to complain about - the buffet is so sumptiously furnished that everyone should find food to make him happy. Even if you don't like some things or they are not top - who cares? There are so many others, so many... We had a wonderful evening trying this place and went out really satisfied. And the... More

Went there for NYs. It was a set menu of 4 courses and a glass of champagne for 95 euros. Venue was spacious, looks like a transformed factory. Fusion cuisine. Average service. Great drinks. Food was ok, but the main course was the size of half a sausage ... Outragous! Wouldnt say it was worth the money

The title of my review should say it all. Service - unfriendly, I think even by "stereotypicall" French standards. Atmosphere - blah to terrible (you felt like you were at the upstairs of a chinese buffet) - food decent. Prices OK. So many better choices in Aix. Don't waste your money.

I came across this restaurant by accident and thought it was a really great discovery. The idea of combining different cuisines is really refreshing which is enhanced by the urban design of a warehouse being turned restaurant. The industrial, modern atmosphere is a nice change to the classic, old-style fashion of all the bistros on Cours Mirabeau and the like.... More

Quietly located away from the crowds, this restaurant offers a buffet or an a la carte restaurant. We had the buffet. The food was good but unexceptional, the staff were helpful and pleasant. However, the wine list was very limited
