This is probably a great restaurant if you're really hungry! There's no real menu, just a quite basic salad and sides buffet and continuous skewers of different sorts of meat which keep coming as long as you want. The waiters bring them out in turn but the meat is being continually basted and kept warm. This means that although the... More

Great selection of items and they definitely keep the food coming as long as you want. Highlights were the chicken hearts and the chicken thighs but all the meats were really good. Lots of selection on sides as well, service was fantastic. Was disappointed they didn't have Sangria on the menu but they did make it for us...wasn't the best... More

We have been here a few times, always great! The service is unreal. The salad selection is really good. The meat is to die for. We will definitely be back!

We ordered take-out for a family of 13 and prepared our own side dishes at our condo. There was a lot of meat, it was tasty and enjoyed by all.

Hands down the best value at lunchtime. Salad bar includes with tons of sides. Beef, lamb, pork, chicken - unlimited helpings.

We were a group of six - 2 from BC, 2 from South Africa and 2 from the UK. We had dinner here in mid-July on a Friday night. Had a fantastic experience! Service was fantastic despite the restaurant being very full and with a few other large parties. Food was scrumptious - all the meats were done perfectly and... More

The place is kind of a weird feel to me. Too few tables scattered around in a too large a space. The food was generally good. Nothing outstanding, but nothing bad either. Friends tell me that you can expect fairly consistent results here. But to get me to keep coming back to a restaurant, something has to be really great.... More

The food was good (not great) and the cuts of meat were very tender, also the waiters were friendly. Unfortunately if you are not a huge MEAT eater, then you are restricted to a very few salad options from the side bar but at the same expensive price as those who eat meat. So, unless everyone in your party likes... More
