I tried almost everything from the buffet and drank tamarind water and I can recommend it to all foodies wishing to explore Arabic, Lebanese and Syrian cuisine.

Change of pace and the beautiful buffet allowed us to sample excellent foods of the entire region. The staff was so friendly they went out of their way to explain each delicacy to us. Exquisite service from the elegantly attired and sophisticated maitre'd who constantly checked on our table. Beautiful services and gorgeous surroundings and view. Posh and ultra cool.... More

The icing on the cake for us was the fantastic value... More

The quality is not as good as before. The food was bit cold and not large selection as in the old days. The service is always good.
