The Cuisine

Let’s get this straight from the beginning – all meals are sumptuous Chinese banquet and buffet style servings. Don’t worry about whether you can or cannot eat something. There is something for everyone! If you enjoy meat dishes, we generally have beef, pork, chicken or seafood. For our vegetarians, we have delicious and carefully prepared non-meat dishes. You can even switch back and forth if you like. Breakfasts are usually at the hotel morning buffet, serving lots of Western dishes; eggs, bacon, toast, fruit, juices and a full variety of other breakfast items.

Since we are usually out and about during the day, most lunches and dinners will be served in carefully picked restaurants. And, of course, you are free to eat out on your own at any time. Simply put “The Food is Fabulous!”
