CONCLUSION

This was the first of the three lounges I visited in this airport and I thought it was a pretty decent lounge. Upon arrival at the lounge, the receptionist checked my Star Alliance gold card and was then welcomed by another staff who gave me a meal coupon. I could order one of the two choices (panini or sushi) and I chose the former. There is also complimentary wifi. Overall, a nice lounge.
