The food and facility all need refreshed. The buffet had little variety. Everything appeared to need a better wiping or washing. This use to be one of the best, but not anymore.

Good question. You can always ask the wait staff. I'm allergic to MSG and didn't break out after having lunch there. I stayed away from the highly processed items though.
