Much cuter inside than it looks on the outside. The food is spectacular. Tried a variety of foods and was impressed with them all.

Although the food is still good. It wasn't great. It just didn't have the same feel as a few years ago. The service is horrible. The first time they offered to refill our drinks was after we asked for the check.

We have found our family, who are all gluten free can eat most of the food, except the pita bread. We have eaten at many of their buffets .
