Food is ok. About what you'd expect from a large chain. Staff friendly and smiled. Always a big plus for me. Refillable coffee and tea..... Nice touch.

Food was very lovely, did not have to wait to long for the food after ordering. Although some staff members did not seem very approachable. But the other staff were very polite and lovely.
