Excellent service. Very good breakfast buffet and noteworthy dinner prix fixe options. The decor is nice but some of the furniture can be updated as some looked worn out.

We loved the food here and would come again. We usually do not eat seafood, but at this restaurant the smell of food is so rich and spices that we had to try it. This place would not disappoint.
