I went with co-workers for a quick lunch. They all ate from the buffet. I had the soup with pita triangles. Everything was delicious as always. Was back at office in 45 minutes. Gotta love it!

We had the taste of the world combo and it was superb. Selecting your choice was a little complicated but server was a huge help. The flan and strawberry cheesecake were amazing.

All 4 in our family opted for the lunch buffet (Nepali/Puerto Rican dishes today) -- a flavorful and healthy mix of authentically prepared dishes. The staff were attentive, warm, and good-humored. We enjoyed our meal immensely and agreed that this visit was an "Upohar" --...More
