We had the taste of the world combo and it was superb. Selecting your choice was a little complicated but server was a huge help. The flan and strawberry cheesecake were amazing.

Wow - what a great smelling, well spiced and tasty range of foods! Lunch buffet was Nepali and Puerto Rican varieties. I had a delightful North African vegetarian tagine. Never thought to put artichokes in!
