Hot and Cold has delicious, authentic cuisine! I eat vegan and it's wonderful to be able to enjoy the lunch buffet along with my meat-eating friends! There truly is something for everyone, and it's all delicious!

On the plus side...the food was delishious! Fresh, excellent flavors. The negative...such small portions for the price...main meals were appetizer portions. Very little meat but lots of rice and pita. We left still hungry. Service was also very slow.
