    A Sushi oasis off the track

    Sushi Oasis in a giant generic building

    I stumbled upon this place in my travels around Reno. It seemed to be buzzing whilst other parts of reno wee not. I had to investigate.

    And wow did I score big. This place was awesome.

    For about $17US I was able to eat myself silly with unlimited sushi rolls...It was pure joy I experienced here. And don't the locals just know they're on a winner. It's away from the tourist strip.

    Favorite Dish: They had a series of sushi rolls after famous persons.

    The Garden Restaurant: Surprisingly odd location, surprisingly great food

    by bpwarne Updated Dec 1, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is located inside the European Fitness Center on the second floor, on Virginia Street. We were rather taken aback by it's location and pleasantly surprised by the detached atmosphere of this restaurant. Though in a health club, it is located in a very quiet corner and has a very relaxed atmosphere to it, almost a romantic setting, with lots of plants and windows fronting the main street. Many vegetarian entrees, some organic entrees, heart healthy entrees, as well as chicken, fish, and pork.Homemade soups and desserts. Beer, wine, soft drinks, juices and protein/fruit smoothies. The owner is very ammicable. We had a great dinner in this quiet restaurant and will return on our next trip to Reno. The fact that it is right next door to the Peppermill makes it a very appealing get away from the hustle of the casino, especially if you are looking for vegetarian faire.

    Favorite Dish: Chicken wrap with avocado, brown rice. Carrot cake looked delicious. Salmon wrap and garden salad were also delicious.

    Pho 777: Vietnamese Noodle Restaurant

    by bpwarne Updated Dec 1, 2007

    We ate at this restaurant twice in November, 2007 after reading rave reviews on the internet. It did not disappoint. Prices are cheap, portions are large, staff is friendly and efficient. This is a very popular restaurant and you may have to wait in line a bit to be seated. The food is well worth the wait. Ambiance is rather low, but not a problem at these prices

    Favorite Dish: Shrimp Pho(Noodle soup) and #19( Shrimp, pork and egg roll over a bed of rice vermicelli with fresh vegetables and a special sauce). This is enough for two people as portions are quite large. Try the Lemonade also.

    Santa Fe Hotel Basque Restaurant: Authentic family restaurant

    by trvlrtom Written Oct 22, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Basque restaurant

    Basque immigrants from the "Pyrennes" region of Southern France and Northern Spain, primarily sheep herders, settled in Nevada during the 1800s. The restaurant at the small Santa Fe Basque Hotel features traditional Basque fare, served family style - meaning plenty of good, hearty food.
    There are a lot of meats on the menu - steak, lamb, pork, chicken along with some seafood dishes.

    Eating here is a welcome break from the common food served at the hotels and restaurants. You are likely to find something new here.

    Americana Cafe: A taste of Americana

    by poetjo Updated Oct 22, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This restaurant is located within the Circus Circus Hotel Casino complex among varied other restaurants. I would call it a high end diner only because of the ambience. It is very spacious with booths and tables alike. There is also counter dining. It serves breakfast all day with a scrumptious belgian waffle that I love and has a fairly extensive menu for this type of restaurant. You can order a turkey dinner, prime rib or burgers, sandwiches etc... they also had a few healthy alternatives, veggie burgers and sandwiches and a tofu salad, which was nice to see.

    The portions are large so be warned. I ordered a turkey club at one point with fries and when my order arrived my first thought was "how am I going to eat all of this". The food is good and the staff accomodating. The prices are average. They are open 24/7. They also never get too crowded.

    Favorite Dish: I haven't eaten their enough to choose a favorite but I did enjoy the Belgian waffle and turkey club.

    Top Deck Restaurant: Cheap eats

    by poetjo Written Oct 22, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is typical american diner food in the middle of the Cal Neva casino. It's housed on the second floor of the casino. I love the spacious booths. The waitstaff is friendly and attentive depending on what time you are there. I've been eating here for years and it's just the luck of the draw on the waitstaff. The Keno runners however are always friendly, but then again they're taking your money.

    The food is good. They serve breakfast 24/7 which I like. They serve everything from burgers, to steaks, to salads etc... It's not fine dining but it's good and satisfying. I would label it comfort food. It's a bit difficult to eat healthy in Reno, even at the hotel casinos unless you just order salads. Their restaurants are conducive to comfort. In any case I have to say the club sandwiches and the patty melts are probably my favorites. It's never really that crowded which I also enjoy. Prices are inexpensive and great for families.

    Favorite Dish: It's difficult to choose a favorite but I really enjoy the patty melts because they are grilled to perfection. And, I always enjoy all the breakfasts.

  • The Nugget Diner: Awefully Good and Awefully Big!

    by CaryRocks Updated Feb 15, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You must experience the Aweful Aweful Burger from the diner in the back of the Nugget on the strip. From under $5 you get the biggest, tastiest burger you've ever had. It also comes with a basket full of fries. It's tough to finsh, but it's so ggod, you won't want to waste a bite. When you first look at this diner, you'll think it's a dive, but the locals will tell you it's the place to eat. Be prepared to wait because it's always busy. The also have a full service menu for those who don't like burgers. This is a Reno must!

    Favorite Dish: The Aweful Aweful Burger!

    Chef's Buffet Entrance

    This buffet is one of Reno's best. Some days are definately better then others and it is best to read the menu of offerings before going in. Mid-week breakfasts are very basic while weekends have many choices and so on. The service is usually very good with the exception of the cashiers which is a hit or miss situation. Some are just not real happy campers. :) The nice thing about the breakfast buffet is there is always an omelet bar. My first stop. I love a fresh made omelet. Dinner always offers roast beef and at least one other fresh carved item. Fridays is the seafood buffet and bringing your appetite is recomended. Prices do go up for this.

    Lindy's: Some good filling fare

    by thecatsmeow Updated Feb 3, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    table setting

    Lindy's is a 24 hour diner/cofeeshop located inside the Reno Hilton. We usually like to have breakfast here. The nicest thing about this place is the help. (well the food also) I think it really says something about a place when the help is the same people visit after visit. I always have had great service and more then one smile to go with it! The restaurant was named for Charles Lindbergh and has an old timey feel to it.
    Sad to say that it looks like Lindy's is no longer there. There is however a coffee shop inside the Grand Sierra and I will find out if it is the old Lindy's. If you have not seen my updated Reno Hilton tip the Reno Hilton has been bought out by the Grand Sierra Resort. We shall see what comes of it. :(

    Favorite Dish: The pancakes are outstanding and very filling. unless you are extremely hungry stick to the short stack (2 cakes). I like to have blueberries put into mine but you can order them plain as well. The omlettes are very good as well but a little to much for me to eat. We have split one on occasion. And the coffee here is excellent!

    Luciano's: Consistently the best in Reno

    by roadeagl Written Feb 3, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I get to Nevada on business several times a year and I always make it a point to dine here. The food is excellent; the wines, though t not a large selection, are reasonably priced. Very friendly staff.

    I must have eaten in every restaurant in Reno and I've paid a lot more elsewhere but Luciano's is the best value in town. You can gamble in a casino but don't eat there. Drive the extra mile to Luciano's.

    Favorite Dish: Salmon is always fresh. Zuppa de Pesce very good. They will customize their polenta offerings to your taste; al you have to do is ask.

    Island Buffet: Great dinner buffet

    by PinkFloydActuary Written Oct 13, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Everyone enjoys a good buffet

    A highly rated buffet. It's about $16 for dinner, which is a bargain compared to many of the big time Vegas buffets. There is plenty to choose from with many types of stations - Chinese, Mexican, American, and a huge seafood station with plenty of shrimp, crab legs (3 kinds!) and even oysters. They have an average selection of salads and fresh fruits as well. The wait was a little long for a Sunday night, but it's hard to beat what you get for this price. They do have an ice cream station that is pretty good, but the one shortfall is the rest of the desserts. Between my wife and I, all three selections tried tasted stale - I don't know if it was frozen or had just been sitting too long, but was a small disappointment to end the meal.

    While you are eating, from time to time, a thunderstorm will roll through the dining area, complete with lightning and thunder!

    Favorite Dish: I was impressed that they had three types of crab legs - Snow, Dungeness, and a few King

  • Great Wall Buffet: Avoid at all costs!

    by WoHop Updated May 25, 2006

    Masses of terrible food with one constant - its all greasy, steam tabled to death, and unappetizing. This restaurant sets new lows for cleanliness with filthy carpets, repulsive restrooms, poorly bussed tables, and sticky serving utensils. The ambiance is non-existent and the service is surly. In a town known for gambling, its a sure bet that you will walk away from the Great Wall Buffet wondering how they stay in business and regretting having ingested a single bite.

    Oceano: Oceano Seafood - Sushi - Oyster Bar

    The Peppermill Hotel / Casino finally opened
    the much awaited Oceano, a new seafood
    restaurant, sushi and oyster bar, dazzling
    aquatic casino, and high tech video lounge.
    It was great, we really enjoyed it ....
    Great food, and the waitstaff was very prompt.

    Favorite Dish: If you decide to try it out, plan to sample the freshest seafood, tastiest
    pasta and most sumptuous steak in a dramatic undersea environment.
    You'll immerse yourself beneath the sea with blue cast mirrors and over
    240 life size replicas of sharks, manta rays, turtles, whales, butterflyfish
    and other marine life soaring above.

    Another exclusive attribute of the restaurant is the large aqua farm area
    that sits in the middle of the main kitchen. These aqua farms feature
    fresh, live shell fish such as lobster and Dungeness crab. The shellfish
    are changed in the tanks to coincide with each seasonal variety.

    Louis Basque Corner: Louis Basque Corner

    by Tom_Fields Written Oct 31, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Louis Basque Corner in downtown Reno

    The Basques are a distinct ethnic group from southern France and northern Spain. Mostly herders, they were attracted to Nevada because of its open spaces and good grazing land. So a large number of them settled in and around Reno. This is the ONLY Basque restaurant that I've ever visited.

    The food is served in a communal setting. It's ideal to have a large group. You select the main course, but the other dishes simply come with it. They include beans, a salad, bread, and vegetables. Take all you want, but save room for the next course.

    Obviously, this is NOT fast food, but a special gatronomic experience. Take your time and enjoy it.

    Favorite Dish: The whole meal comes together.
