Our Al Bustan dining experience was great. Their international dinner buffet has a variety of options and we enjoyed it. Me and my friends were thankful to their kind and accommodating staff. The place has a relaxing ambiance and we will definitely come back. 😊Thanks to Mr. Ernie for answering our queries, appreciated much!
