Went here with a group. The food was very good and it was a fun atmosphere. They obviously handle large groups well - no waiting, prompt service.

“Touristy yes, but Exceptional Staff!”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Be ready for a fun, Disneyland-like experience. The staff is exceptional. I paid with my credit card and inadvertently left the restaurant without having the card returned. Three members of the restaurant staff contacted my taxi driver to find out where I was staying and they came to my hotel to return the card (it was close to midnight). Am very impressed by their honesty and their attention to customer service. Would definitely go back.
