The breakfast buffet is truly excellent with a huge range of choices. There are fresh juices of all sorts, foods from all around the world, and very attentive staff. I personally enjoyed the outdoor seating option that was available.

Ate at the buffet for breakfast and dinner today. The selection offered many interesting options at both meals. There was a significant Indian influence and many other local choices. Service was extremely helpful and prompt.
