Visited during Ramadan for iftaar. Was very busy and hard to get a booking. Very crowded. We got a seat outside. Lucky the weather was warm. The food was average. Service was poor. Buffet area gets very crowded with long queues.

Went as a party of 12, the table they originally gave us was right at the front which was not the greatest as we had a buggy. Management kindly gave us a private room at the back of the restaurant which was a nice gesture...More
