Like: close to Arena, convenient Parking close by,
Dislike:oriental food at premium price and average quality, service very average, depending on who's working, incredibly lousy acoustics cause difficult conversations

Few years ago I ate at JinSo with a friend, and it was okay. not that great. Today we walked by at dinner time, so we gave it another shot, and we took the 'all ya can eat' buffet. (like we did before)

I must say, it was terrible.
The "Chicken Sate" was yellow of the curry in has been laying in for.. 2 days? and then was washed off and used for the sate.
and, like the chicken sate, the Chicken Gon boa, didn't really taste (nor looked) like real chicken. I looked like "glued" together poultry.
The fries were stale, the mini egg rolls were wet and mushy, the rice was drying out, (or way undercoocked),& the vegetables tasted old. After 1,5 plate of "food" testing, I stopped eating. (can't really call it food)

The best part probably was the ice, which they didn't make themselfs.

So,... Stay clear from the "all you can eat" buffet... Maybe the a-la-cart food is eatable, but the buffet ain't!!

Totally NOT worth the 23,50 euro.

Went here for a quick bite with a friend. The place looks nice. Ground floor is a la carte and upstairs you can have a buffet dinner. I had the vegetarian dumpling noodle soup from the a la carte menu. Broth was a little bland and I thought there were a lot of noodles compared to the rest. The dumplings were the best part. I would not mind never coming back, though the place is not bad. I feel just like the Swiss: neutral. ;)
