Open for both lunch and dinner, about 40 different dishes line the buffet. The buffet includes appetizers, salads, mains, desserts, and soft drinks. Although not offered every day, sweets buffets with cakes and other desserts are scheduled on certain days from 3:30pm to 5:00pm. While their concept of eating healthy with an urban-forest-like atmosphere remains the same, the theme of the buffet changes seasonally. For example, Asian cuisines such as Thai, Vietnamese, and Indonesian are offered for the Asian/Ethnic themed buffet available from June 1, 2016 to August 31, 2016. If interested, take a look at their website or the front of the restaurant for details on their dishes.
