Not a fan of this food. The beef is tough, a lot of the food looks like it's been reheated for a week. The food is really not good. Find somewhere else

I visit the garden buffet often. I would say at best the food is average. Nothing to write home about. I only eat there because I work near the restaurant and it's convenient for me. The staff at the restaurant are very nice and friendly. I would say that's the best thing going for the place. So if you want... More
