All the food was sitting so long it had huge skins over the sauce. The desserts were all obviously from Iceland. The soup looked like vomit. Which is ironic because I was up all night vomiting afterwards.

I have eaten here several times & always found it to be busy, clean, great food variety, hot food, fresh & tasty. I will say that twice I have seen some of the staff carry or move food with their hands when refilling the dishes, which I am NOT a big fan off. Otherwise 100%. Highly recommended.

The Fab Four were out for lunch for a Chinese buffet The bill was certainly easy to pay We all missed mushrooms in the vegetable selection The staff were very helpful and gracious More variety and more fat free vegetables would have made sense And would have improved the overall experience

Went here tonight and not only was the food disgusting, cold barely existent as many trays were empty, a staff member picked his nose for a period of time on the restaurant floor. I wanted to refuse to pay only my partner was too embarrassed. He is now in bed sick ( coincidence or not I don't know ). Avoid... More

Been to this place numerous times and was pleased with everything, but on this occasion wasn't very happy, wasn't many people when we went and I think I know why, lukewarm to cold food and when I told one of the waiters he replied, and I quote, no problem, then I take it it was the manager who came out...
