Saraya serves an excellent brunch in an impressive setting. This place is obviously packed on weekends as they serve a more “international” buffet featuring more Asian, Indian, and indigenous food rather than the usual Continental cuisine we have come to associate with international food. The ambiance is great, service quick and unobtrusive, and the price is at par with most other brunch buffet options in town.
