Lots of food to eat here - We ate here once and it is quite bad. On our second visit, the food from another store is delicious and very fairly priced! Tip: Walk one round first before making your decision. They are mostly selling the same thing, albeit at different prices, so just look for the store that interest you. We ate at a store at the corner (close to the escalator down), where the staff are wearing yellow, and their food is delicious! Would definitely revisit if we happen to be in the area.
There was some wait time but the food was decent. Quick games were quite fun. However, there were way too many people there... Overall, it was okay. Great for family, friends and couples. Also, if you like being in a crowded place, you should definitely visit!
