    Luxor Buffet: Luxor Buffet

    Experience eating at the Luxor Buffet. The motif is totally amazing. You will be more amazed more of the architecture and design of the buffet restaurant than the food itself. You will see huge ropes and huge rough logs, wells and big stones like you are in a different time and space.

    Favorite Dish: Everything is excellent. Just make sure that when you go to the dinner buffet, arrive earlier. There are many choices of food from salads to soups. It's all you can eat, so bring your appetite after an all-day of walking!

    Tender: Tender at Luxor

    by Roadquill Updated Jan 19, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located off to the side in the Luxor casino, the Tender restaurant is top notch. Quite expected as the major casinos must compete with one another. There is a nice waiting area in front where you can enjoy a drink in comfort if you have to wait for a table. We were led to a quiet room of only a dozen or so tables, well away from the casino noise. Service was professional and friendly. Several cuts of steaks in various sizes, as well as lobster, seafood, ciopinno, soups and salads. We split a 22 oz bone in ribeye,

    Favorite Dish: They offered a soup sampler, 3 off of the 4 offered on the menu. The mushroom, lobster bisque, pumpkin soup was excellent. One of the specials of the evening was a black truffle mash potato. The bone in ribeye was done to perfection, all though it would have been better on a platter warm enough to last the time it takes to eat through 22 oz. The wine was a Maso from Verona and a bargain at only 30 for the bottle.

    Luxor Buffet: Pharoah's Pheast Buffet

    Luxor Hotel

    I hit this one for breakfast and, at $14 per person, it was not a good deal. Lunch is probably a better choice.

    Pretty standard breakfast stuff here, and not even a wide selection. Not even any muffins or pastries here. No salad bar either. Not that I wanted one, but I was getting accustomed to seeing them at every Vegas buffet, including breakfast. The pharoah would not be pleased with this one.

    Sea Blue: Michael Mina's Seafood Experience

    by Etoile2B Written Jul 14, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    San Francisco based celebrity chef, Michael Mina has several restaurants in Las Vegas. Among them is Sea Blue, specializing in seafood. Located in the MGM Grand the menu is dominated by fish but meat eaters will find a few options as well, such as lamb, chicken and steak. The food is good, but as I tend to find throughout Las Vegas, it’s never quite as good as the same restaurants back on their home turf. The service is excellent and they feature a nice wine list. We had a nice meal when we dined here. The shellfish platter was amazing. The king crab legs were huge and scrumptious. The oysters were delicious. As usual, the signature dishes like the lobster corndogs and the root beer float were a pleasure (although the chocolate chip cookies weren’t up to par). I would recommend this place for seafood lovers while in Vegas.

    Favorite Dish: I had the grilled scallops and enjoyed it. If you’re up for the splurge (it is Vegas afterall) the Lobster is great as is the shellfish appetizer platter and of course, the lobster corn dog appetizer.

    Isis: Luxurious dining at the Luxor

    by Robachu1 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We felt like royalty.

    We were made to feel like royalty when we entered Isis. Our waiting staff (Joseph, Jean Pierre, Lee) made sure that everything was perfect.
    The interior was beautiful, private, quiet, and romantic.

    Favorite Dish: We started off with the Baked Prawns Stuffed w/ Crabmeat and the Avocado and Crabmeat Salad. Our entrees were Bouillabaisse and a Trio of Meats (Veal, Filet, Lamb). The desserts looked fantastic but we just didn't have room.

    More (Luxor's Buffet): Cheap...

    by heryanta Written Nov 1, 2007

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    rather blurry picture :p

    Located at the base of the Luxor Pyramid my review of More as follows:

    Price - very good
    Lunch buffet for $12 ($15 if you're not staying at Luxor), a very tough price to beat since you'll be spending around the same amount for a sandwich combo at a deli.

    Selection - poor
    There's no crab legs, cocktail shrimps, dim sum items or cook to order noodles. I guess you get what you pay for.

    Food - poor to average
    Although the salad bar is good the warm meal selection is disappointing. The oriental cuisine is tasteless, the pizza taste like a cheap frozen brand. The fish and meatloaf were ok. Dessert sort of salvaged the meal in the end.

    Ambiance - average
    Decoration was quite nice, seat was comfortable. The restaurant is rather warm and humid which was kinda weird since the Luxor is generally cold

    Overall - average
    If it's not for the cheap price I will not consider coming back here. I can see myself coming back since I don't normally go to fine restaurants for lunch. If the option is paying $11 for a sandwich combo at a deli or $12 to go to this buffet I'd rather do the latter.

    Part two of my More: The buffet at luxor with more pictures.

    More: The Buffet at Luxor, which is easily one of the most popular buffets in Las vegas since the price moderate. More: The Buffet at Luxor is Located in the lower level of the :uxor hotel and inside this massive buffet area are the Indiana Jones Type Motifs and there could be a long line during lunch and dinner as you don't need any reservations to enter the buffet. MORE features a massive 30-foot salad bar, homemade pizza station, two delectable carving stations, a tasty omelet station, and specialties from around the world. The scrumptious dessert station features French pastries and sugar-free dessert.

    Favorite Dish: The choices here are really wide and there are various cooking stations and price wise, this is a steal for just $ 20 for a dinner buffet including the unlimited drinks too. A downside of a cheap buffet is that they don't have special stuffs like snow crabs, alaskan king crab legs, huge scallops or lobsters unlike the other buffets at the Wynn or Bellagio or MGM Grand (but they cost $ 35 or more).

    Sacred Sea Room: If you like it hot.....

    by RAINBOWWINGS Updated Aug 23, 2007

    Service was exceptional even tho the ambience was a little strained, the sort of place where you feel you must whisper. The food was superb so worth the quiet ambience.

    UPDATE: June 2007. Sorry folks you missed out as they have closed this restaurant together with its sister the Isis. The Luxor is upgrading the hotel to a more modern theme so very shortly all those lovely Egyptian artefacts and knick-knacks will be gone!

    Favorite Dish: If you like hot spicy food then you must try the Alaskan King Crab claws with the hottest horseradish sauce ever!! Guaranteed to blow your head off...or at least make your eyes water!

    Luxor Buffet: Pretty Plain and Ordinary for lunch

    by PinkFloydActuary Written Mar 22, 2005
    More - the Luxor Buffet

    Tried this one a couple of times for lunch over the years. Not too much memorable - standard buffet choices. Not as exciting as the high end buffets, and not as stomach churning as the low end ones. I would simply call this an ordinary buffet, good for those who'd prefer to spend a little less for their buffet.

    Favorite Dish: Can't remember a distinct favorite.

    Backstage Deli: Quick and easy sandwiches

    by PinkFloydActuary Updated May 18, 2008
    Backstage Deli (Luxor)

    Just stopped here for a quick bite to eat. Fairly wide selection of sandwiches with "food court" style seating. It's tucked away in a corner of the casino, so you can eat in relative peace. They stacked the sandwich high with meat. Overall, a solid choice for a fast meal.

    Favorite Dish: The corned beef sandwich - lots of meat, very satisfying.

    Gardunos: Somewhat disappointing, then redemption

    by PinkFloydActuary Updated Jan 16, 2010

    Ended up travelling to the Palms specifically for this restaurant only to get stuck with a brunch buffet. Part of the allure was the never-ending glass of margarita, which was good, but the buffet food itself was pretty average. Still good enough to stuff myself on! At the end, we did get soapapillas, but that's not really up my alley. Right next to the casino, but it has a large seating area so noise wasn't too big a concern. Lots of cool looking items hanging on the walls. Wait staff was friendly. Probably a little pricier than the quality dictates.

    Update: 2009, tried this again for lunch with much better results. I tried fish tacos, the fish was tasty and plentiful. I also went with a cup of tortilla soup that was really good, and capped it off with a mango margarita, which went down quickly! Much better experience, and I would definitely now go back again.

    Favorite Dish: They had a great chips and salsa bar.

    Luxor Buffet: in the middle but near the end of the Strip

    by conark Written May 29, 2005

    some other buffet boards often give this place a generously high rating. i tend to disagree and sometimes wonder at whom votes at these places. i came here for breakfast and heard that it was a good deal. i suppose if you're looking for something economical, with some atmosphere, a ton of warm/hot hot, and plenty of space to park your loogie traps (i.e. kids), then drop on by. for a high end meal this is not. it's safe and caters to the middle America crowd with the extensive collection of bacons, eggs, normal pasta, pizza, etc. yet nothing that could be considered a chef's special exist here.

    Favorite Dish: can't remember. must be like most hollywood films these days: decent for what it is, but not trend setting.
