Great food, great value for money and great service. A huge range of different cuisines to choose from in a buffet format. Definitely all you can eat, we always walk out full and satisfied. Would go back again.

This is the best food for a buffet all you can eat type restaurant. Excellent selections which change meat main course options daily. Try to avoid usual dinner hours. It will be easier to make selections without a crowd.

Very poor customer service at cashier upon arrival. Everything I touched was sticky. The place was not clean, floor, tables. Had to walk all over the place to find two forks. Refused to use their restrooms.

The food is good, the steaks are delicious. There is a good variety of food to choose from. Need more of a dessert selection.
