This is my first review, I felt compelled after reading the other reviews to report my experience at Tukwila Zoopa also. We also arrived after 830pm (it states they are open until 9pm on the door, which to me should mean people could come in at 859pm and be able to get seated and have to eat...and since its a buffett....there should still be food available for AT LEAST 15-20 minutes after the closing time). Anyway, he came in at about 840pm, actually mentioned that it was almost closing time and the young man at the counter said that there was plenty of time. We got our drinks and found a place to sit, went back got our salad with the plan to go back and get pasta/baked potato/soup after eating the salad. Before we even made it to our table with food (so, 845pm) a staff person came around and told everyone (there were probably 8-10 tables) that in 10 minutes the food would be gone (so before 9pm). We ate our salad as fast as we possibly could, made it in time to get a bowl of soup, the desserts, bread and pasta were already gone and the 10 minutes were not up (not even close). This establishment is good for vegetarians, soups are also good (and some have a little meat), the pasta leaves a great deal to be desired and there is definitely not any significant meat. I saw the small size of the added chicken breast that is sitting in the salad bar all day for an extra charge and passed. Although I did find the staff unprofessional (in that they were not accurate with the food timing), we did complain to the manager about our experience and received 2 coupons for free buffett during our next visit.
Pros: Healthy food, appears fresh, but no meat and very few protien alternatives
Cons: Expensive for a salad bar, poor service
