What an excellent evening in every respect! Your staff were professional and very helpful and I would like to thank Mr. Angel especially for keeping his finger on the pulse at all times. Everybody enjoyed the wide spread buffet, ambiance, music, and service. Thank you very much.

The restaurant is conveniently located and the best part is it serves late night. It has a contemporary decor. Food menu is limited for late night dinners and vegetarians do not have choices at all. Some of the dishes are great and some seem to be stale. I have been here a few times and quality is not consistent.

The buffet spread is just about OK. Would have loved to see some more choices in the vegetarian section. The dessert section was food. The no vegetarian was good though. The place has a bit of a worn out look.
