Ate breakfast here. Food was hot, typical buffet offerings, fresh made omelets, fruit, meats, assorted pastries. Attentive service and great for people watching as it is located in the open close to front desk.

A very pleasant experience. Good sushi and overall a nice restaurant. The staff was attentive, although has a little issue understanding English. The restaurant is kept cold, so take a jacket if you are sensitive to temps. Overall, worth the visit.

Yes, they are open. Just like every service industry in the world. Not trying to be mean, just how the industry works. A great place, pretty decent service and an overall good experience.
