In addition to an a la carte menu with entrees ranging around 15 euros, the restaurant offers a buffet for 20 euros/person. Having walked all day long, two of us decided our appetite could handle the "all you can eat" buffet while the other two settled on the a la carte menu.
The buffet consists of 2 soups, several ready made dishes such as egg rolls, satay, stir fries, noodles, etc., a wok buffet, dessert and coffee or tea. The best part was the wok buffet where you can pile your plate up with your choice of beef, pork, chicken, shrimp, fish, calamari, shiitake mushroom, vegetables, etc. then watch the chef prepare it in the style and sauce of your choice right in front of you. For coffee, you have a choice of expresso or capucino, unusual with a Chinese meal!
We found the service to be very attentive. In addition to our waitress, the father and son owners constantly stopped by our table to chat and offer explanations and solicitations to try the different dishes on the buffet. They sure wanted to be certain we did not leave hungry.
