Saw the reviews on this site and decided to give it a try. We were not disappointed. We had the 'all you can eat' and choice was great. Would definitely recommend for a great meal out.

Very poor and unauthentic. Rude management, see comments when negative review posted. My review was censored and not published when I tried posting how bad it was. Go elsewhere!
