Favorite Buffet on the Vegas Strip - A Hidden Gem | The Buffet @ Aria

I had a chance to visit Las Vegas with some friends and they wanted to know where one would find a great buffet on the Vegas Strip. Without hesitation, I suggested my favorite buffet on strip with the simply called The Buffet at the Aria hotel. Great value for the Strip buffets with a good selection of high quality foods and various showcase items such as the king crab and other seafood assortments. While not as glamorous as Caesars Bacchanal Buffet, the Aria offers far greater value with the sacrifice of the high-end offerings and avoiding the 3 hour+ wait! From ossobuco & pizza to dim sum & dumplings, everything was made to the highest standards.
Premium seafood items include: raw and grilled oysters, an amazing array for crab (including King Crab) and shellfish, to a variety high end grilled fish -- all of which were, again, prepared to perfection.
Some useful links:

• 3730 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109, USA
• The Gourmet weekend dinner: $46 (but there may be some discounts with the casino card)
Thank you to you all for joining us on my favorite buffet in Vegas! Happy dining everyone and let us know about your favorite buffet!
Happy Dining!

Randomly stumbled on your channel and this video because of the TRvision algorithm (probably because I watch Mike Chen lol) and just realized I'm on this video (and my family)!!--I knew you look familiar, but didn't know who you were, but I did have a hunch that you maybe a food vlogger or some sort when I saw you holding up a DJI osmo camera then at Aria's buffet. This was filmed in August 25, 2019 I'm at 1:55 - 1:59 dining with my family at the far back (group of 5) just below the sign that says "Fish Market"! from the angle of your video wow. Small (internet) world. Lol.

I also like the Grand Lux Cafe at the Venetian....Between those two places, and an occasional fancy dinner, that about sizes up all the places i had been eating for the last several years when i come to town. (Edit), oh, and Tim, thanks for reviewing Savior the buffet at the Trop.

  • I ate here my last trip (2016) for lunch - not dinner. You can get discounts for lunch AND dinner - all the way down to costing nothing (I was able to get a free lunch buffet here in 2016). At the time, this was the ONLY buffet with Tandoori-prepared curry and naan - which is why I went here. (I had never had curry at all; let alone real-deal Tandoori-prepared curry OR naan.) How to eat curry with naan for rookies - use the naan as a "bed", spoon the curry over it, and eat it open-face style. You can put rice in between the curry and naan - or have the rice INSTEAD of naan as the "bed" for your curry, and simply eat the naan as a flatbread (which it is). If you eat here for lunch, you have two hours to stuff your tummy; the question is will you run out time, or run out of tummy? I am normally a Serious Eater; and I ran out of tummy - in fact, I had a half hour left. And I had some of every station - and THREE curry-with-naan passes! My next trip, I'm bringing my mom; she had tummy issues and was unable to join me here for lunch in 2016. I mentioned that you can get the buffet here at a cost of nit - it's still an option, especially if you have an Android or Apple device. MGM Resorts (which owns the Aria and several other casinos and hotels in Vegas - and elsewhere) has linked with two slot gaming apps - myKonami and myVegas; both offer rewards - including discounts on hotel rooms - in some cases, free hotel rooms, and other discounts and freebies - including the buffet here at the Aria. The slot gaming apps themselves are free, and available on Google Play (Android) and the iOS/MacOS App Store (Apple).
