Arrive a little early to make sure you get a seat. This lunch buffet is always busy. The food choices are full of delicious flavors. Plenty to eat and pick from on this buffet line. Reasonable price for lunch.

I was most impressed by the design and layout of the restaurant. It has a lovely vibe to the courtyard (eating area) if one could call it that. The service was good but not remarkable. The food was tasty and all in our party enjoyed...More
