Great selection - and very good service. The always fresh variety will surprise you and it is very affordable. My servers have always deserved a nice tip.

An excellent selection of quality fresh food from around the world. Service was spot on. There is more than you eat or try. Do a walk around before selecting something to eat so you don't miss anything. Can't go wrong

We attended this buffet on Thanksgiving. It was quite expensive and not as good as I had heard. Might have been because half the buffet was dried up food.
