enjoyed a few days of breakfasts here, wide range of different styles (continental, Arabian, Indian, English, American (waffles)). Coffee and mushrooms a bit meh but otherwise very good. Lunches (as part of small conference package) overabundant, we had to start refusing food after a while, but it was all nice. Ignore the weird Egyptian theme. Nice view of museum out the window

I do not recommend this restaurant. The service is terribly lazy, plates pile up on the table, drinks are for never. The seafood buffet is with no taste, full of dishes looking good but very deceptive.

The first point is staff greet you with a big smile, and assist you to the table. Variety of foods served is good.
