We had dinner and breakfast here. Breakfast was very average buffet. Dinner menu had a good choice and the food was good, but the service a little slow and the waitress didn't have much idea about the menu.

I ate here with my boyfriend for his birthday and the food was delicious! We each had three courses and the food was so tasty and beautifully presented. Our waitress was also so so lovely and attentive. I can't fault it!
