I like that this Asian buffet had a traditional salad bar i.e. lettuce, tomatoes, carrots etc as an option. We also noticed there were many options for persons who were vegetarians. Favorites were the mushrooms, mixed veg, pepper shrimp, beef and for dessert the sago palm 'pudding' We appreciated that the kiddie chair also had its own little tray which... More

Where do I start? The service was extremely slow - we're talking getting flatware and initial drinks - that took 15 mins; and the place only had 3 other tables occupied. The food was bad. Food that is supposed to be crispy-was soggy. None of it was warm. For the price of one person-I've taken my staff of 5 people... More

I actually went Asian Buffet in October 2014 for my birthday. The buffet styling was nice and the scenery was wonderful. That day I really enjoyed myself. I ate a lot of Asian food. At that time it only had a few desserts and they did not tasted that 100% so I hope at this time it have upgraded. Also... More

An absolute waste of time and money. Wish I hadn't gone. Wonton was oily and raw. You get 2 stars for dessert, your ice cream had lumps and was icey, which means it melt down and you refroze it.

Its a nice restaurant. Not top notch but has a wonderful atmosphere for family and friends. I enjoyed the buffet which had a greater variety than I've seen elsewhere. And the desert was delicious too. There aren't any exotic foods ,just the basics. I missed out on shrimp, squid. I did get a dirty plate on the stack of clean... More

Travelling from POS to Boston on JetBlue was trouble free especially when you are in a More Seat! The snacks are good and there is a good selection of drinks. The most challenging part is the overlay in Fort Lauderdale. Customs and Immigration are less exhausting than in Miami. The return from Boston via New York is a breeze .

Did an early dinner here on a Tuesday evening. I've been here in the past, with the last visit being over a year ago, and left pleased. But this time I found the food was not so tasty, and main course choices not appealing. The dessert selection is adequate though. And the ambience is nice and attractive.

You must sanitise your hands as you enter. There is a great variety of dishes to choose from ranging from local dishes to standard Asian dishes. I found drinks were a bit of a problem; fruit juices did not taste like fruit juices.
