I've been to this style of restaurant in the USA and UK a number of times. What I'm used to is a reasonable price for pretty much all you can eat salad bar and meat, with a fixed price for bottomless soda / pop. In the USA the salad bar at these types of restaurants tends to be massive and... More

For the money being paid better service should be a standard. The idea of the traffic light to indicate whether you want more... More
