Located inside Aria Resort & Casino, The Buffet serves up a variety of eats in a brightly-lit all-you-can-eat restaurant. There was no wait as we approached the counter for brunch (and soon to be dinner), and we were seated quickly in the half-full restaurant. Our server quickly brought our drinks and kept up for providing refills. The buffet area was very clean, but many of the items were missing signs, which left us guessing on what was being served. There were various breads, sides, carved meats, Mexican food, Indian food, pizza, small plates, cheese plates, breakfast items, pho noodles, Chinese food, dim sum, mussels, sushi, and crab legs. The highlight of the buffet would definitely be their carving station because of the sheer number of items available including sausages, pork belly, cowboy steak, ribs, and rotisserie chicken. The cowboy steak was actually quite tender and the grilled vegetables were delicious. The dim sum was quite plentiful, but was falling apart due to being steamed so long. The buffet actually has a Tandoori oven, so we got to enjoy fresh naan and Tandoori chicken, which was delicious and tender. The second most amazing part of the buffet was the ice cream wheel. There were so many flavors of ice cream and gelato available turning around a contraption for the server. The flavors were delicious and decadent. The other desserts also looked very appealing. The pasta bar came later on as dinner started, and it was very rich with cheese and olive oil. Salmon also made an appearance near the seafood area and tasted delicious. Overall, food quality was pretty good at this buffet, and items stayed stocked up. The sushi area looked horrible and was not appealing at all. The ice cream station and carving stations are reasons alone to visit this buffet. If you have a chance to come to Vegas, give Aria a try (after trying the #1 buffet in Vegas: Bacchanal at Caesars)!
