If you are a meat lover, this is an ideal place for you. You pay once and wait for the waiters, who circle around the tables, carrying different kinds of grilled meat. The meat is grilled perfectly and the selection is huge - sirloin steak, flap steak, top sirloin, filet mignon, seafood, poultry, etc. You can eat whatever you want at a convenient time for you. In addition, there is a gourmet salad bar with plenty of delicious choices and desserts. Unfortunately, the latter are the weakest part of the menu (they use fake whipped cream, the taste is average at best). Rather crowded place thus table reservation shall be done. The customer service is rude and unprofessional, that's why such low rating from me.

We arrived about 45 minutes early for a 6pm reservation and were seated right away.

Buffet has a wide selection, including salmon, paella, cheese lasagna, hummus, mango salad, artichoke hearts, other salads, salami, prosciutto, etc. Very good.

Carved meats, shrimp, chicken, pork, beef ribs, chicken hearts, steak, tri tip, etc. The sirloin steak very good, beef rib meat fall off the bone, the grilled pineapple so good had several servings. Most of the meat is marinated, not too salty.

Wine by the glass a little expensive @13.65 each.

Came here for a business dinner. Didn’t know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised. Wait staff is very good and came around with tasty meats and seafood regularly. The buffet is very good too. Lovely cocktails. Would recommend and would come here again.
