Cold weather added that we didn't eat much in the morning, causing our tummies grumbling while we're waiting for doctor's appointment.

 Ashley Queen (애슐리퀸즈).

I found out this restaurant because of Korean Drama 'She Was Pretty' (그녀는 예뻤다). If you remember the scene when Kim Shin-hyuk and Kim Hye-jin having a meal here where the background was the above photo showing lighted sign 'Ashley Queens'.

Googled to check this restaurant in Seoul, and found out that Ashley is chain restaurant. Ashley Queens is one of them, which operated since Dec 2014.

Ashley Queens, Ashley W, Ashley W+ and Ashley Queens, Ashley Marine are Salad Buffet Restaurant. The number and type of dishes serving on each restaurants resulting the difference in the prices. Besides that, they also have two premier restaurants: Ashley Brunch and 83Grill by Ashley.  

Ashley Brunch serving ala carte brunch set, salad, sandwich, pizza, pasta, cake and dessert. And for 83Grill by Ashley is classy complete course for lunch or dinner with amuse-bouche, appetizer, soup, main course (pasta / steak / fish), dessert, coffee or tea.

From the website, this restaurant looks pretty romantic, but it's located at E-World 83 Tower in Daegu. If I have a chance to go there, after my meal I'd like to top up 15,000 won for wine course. I bet the 360 degree view of entire city from 78 floor will be super awesome to enjoy it with a glass of wine or two.

But, the moment we arrived at the building, my hubby and I were 
wondering why this restaurant was so similar to 
 D'Maris Buffet Restaurant.

 We remembered that D'maris also located on the basement,
on the right after came down from the escalator.

Hhhmm weird! But at that time, we concluded that maybe some of the building
just look similar, and buffet restaurants like to rent the whole basement area!

The waitress led us to our seat, and it's actually quite crowded though from outside it seems like not so many customers. Great that we didn't have to wait because this restaurant is super spacious.

so many collection of dresses worn by famous celebrities.

'Queens' photos were artistically displaying on the walls.

Without wasting much time, we went one round to see, and we're sad to see the spread! It's too much food... and our main concern was how to select and eat them in such a short time!

Ashley Queens is really serving world Gourmet Buffet, as you can find signature dishes from Korea and others countries:

 Hubby's choice...

Actually, just sampling a bite size of 50% of the buffet spread enough to make us 3/4 full. So we skipped a lot of food such as fried rice, pasta, noodle, pizza, bibimbap, curry, salad,... some because we can easily find them elsewhere.

The other reason was we're rushing... only spent about 1 hour there as we need to arrive at Kidzania latest by 15:30 pm. Else we can enjoy and indulged more dishes. 

Let's go to Desserts corners for something sweet!
