Thank you for the 4 Star review and your patronage. You are right when you compare the different cultures and their choice of spices European/Scandinavian foods do have different spices. Thank you for recognizing the different cultures around the world. Have a great New Year!
We planned a visit to Solvang during the week to avoid the crowds on the weekends. No fault of the restaurant, the smoke from the Thomas Fire to the south lingered around most of the morning but did clear by the afternoon. Chatted with several...More

Rudest staff who were running around like headless chickens - totally uncoordinated. The bread seems like one week old / so dry. We had to eat the potato salad which was not homemade because the bread was so dry. The buffet was unappetising and food...More
