For salad and soup lovers, this place is a winner. But, other than that, the choices are scant and the price is dear. Food quality is good and wholesome.

Good sumptuous food at our pick. Soups, salads and breads to be chosen from. Enough space to sit and eat with so much choice. Self service buffet. Enough parking space. We recommend the place to the hungry.
