You can see this restaurant as soon as you enter the hotel, the buffets are usually in this restaurant, nice but small since buffet occupies lots of space!

Very busy restaurant with a great range of quality food at the buffet. We enjoyed the evening buffet so much that we returned on several occasions. Staff are friendly and helpful. Well recommended, even if you are not staying in house

The food was cold but had many varieties. Western breakfast like smoothies and bacon were tasteless. Rest OK.

Last but not least, the ambiance is very nice... More

Our tables were cleared while we were selecting our desserts. We returned to our table to find cutlery, serviettes and a half-drunk lime juice had vanished. No sooner we returned though, the...
