Very tasty buffet- especially the mushrooms and beans. Excellent value. You won't leave here hungry! Decorated colorfully. The place was not busy at all when we were there. I hope they have a lot of business.

Very nice place, excellent and friendly service, and delicious food. We tried both, the vegetarian and the meat combos. Both were excellent! Deliciously flavorful and plenty of food. We couldn't finish our orders, so lunch next day, another great meal! Also, the prices are very...More
