This is a great restaurant for a family gathering. They serve family-style with platters of food for the table to share. The food is delicious and it is all you can eat. They charge per person, so it is not cheap, but it is well...More

I have no idea, but it sounds like the person before me knows. It would be very wise to talk to the restaurant now by just calling, so you feel certainty. Good luck.
