“Great Vegetarian”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

As far as vegetarian restaurants go this is one of the best with a really good choic of menu. The buffet is excellant but can end up expensive if you overeat but their normal menu is excellent for the smaller eater. They always have a very good day menu at lunchtime also.

“Even for carnivores”
Reviewed March 12, 2014

This is a vegetarian restaurant in which even carnivores will be happy. I have been with friends for lunch, colleges for brunch, and family for dinner. The main draw is their huge buffet, but menu option is available. Their juice concoctions are well known in the area. The food is absolutely wonderful. Service can be sketchy, though, at times. It is a multi level restaurant, so manipulating from the buffet to your table can be tricky, especially if you are upstairs.

“Used to be better”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

The Buffet is always superb, everything fresh and huge choice of different foods.The menues lack a bit of gusto and are in my view too expensive.
