Nothing really stands out at this buffet. It is just OK. Service was fine. Price is a bit high. The restaurant was clean. May be my expectation is high because I am from Vegas.

We stayed at the hotel associated with this restaurant and decided to dine here. There was a decent assortment of dishes, and all of the food we sampled was good. But NOT nearly as good as many buffets, and not a huge number of choices.More

The place looks like a cafeteria. The food is comparable to a food that you buy at a mall food court and it either sat there for a long time or they overcooked it. They have different selections. Korean-basically assorted kimchi and that's it. Chinese-...More
