Buffet food was luke warm, scary to think meat is at Luke warm temperature.It had no flavour. NOT EDIBLE. Owner was rude about complaint on food. Absolutely will never ever eat there again. Disgusting all around.

Only real complaint was that there should be some "American" choices for fussy kids so parents can enjoy the smorg and kids are happy.
