Ate at the buffet while in Vegas. Suggest getting a players card first(deducts $5.00 off if price) so paid about $22.00 which is comparable to canadian buffets that are similar. Lots of stations to choose from and is in the Palms Casino
We are there Feb. Although I have never had prison food, if given a choice I would choose a tray before this buffet. I'm not exactly sure what the after taste in everything was but you will never forget it. I seriously questioned every piece...of meat on the buffet and spit it out. I'm not a picky eater and will usually eat anything and not complain. Seriously I'm a human trash can when it comes to food and this was not eatible. $17.50 a person. Don't waste your money. I would recommend eating road kill raw before dining here. I think a pack of rabid raccoons would eat here. This was the located at The Palms Hotel in Las Vegas. Save yourself the disappointment on this place.More
Although it's not centrally located on the Strip, the AYCE buffet at Palms is worth it at its price point, especially since it's ~$16/person for lunch. The wait wasn't too bad for Saturday lunch, about 15 minutes. They have different stations to specify the type...of prep/cooking like the Greenery, Revival, World Pan, the Roastery, the Hearth, Smoke & Fire, and Sweet & Light.
The Greenery is more than the basic salad bar. It has a variety of vegetables and greens but also fresh pre-made salads and elegant, gourmet options like an arugula fig salad or pesto mozzarella, one of my favorites. There's assorted breads, fruits, salad dressings & toppings, and cold pastas.
Revival is a vegan/vegetarian station that revamps the traditional vegetarian dishes and included mushroom quesadillas, pita bread and hummus, rainbow chard hash, and zucchini noodles in marinara. Nothing is really special and most of the stuff is pretty bland. At least there's healthy, light options. But let's be real, you're not going to an all-you-can-eat buffet looking for healthy stuff, you're here to indulge.
World Pan is pretty extensive and contains mostly Asian cuisine because it doesn't really fit anywhere else and includes beef & broccoli, dumplings, gyoza, pork buns, fried rice, adobo, poke bowls, and honey walnut shrimp. There's also elotes, paella, and a DIY taco section (al pastor, fajitas, pico de gallo, guacamole, sour cream etc).
There's also the Hearth which is focused on oven baked and/or Italian items like assorted pizza, strombolis, and pasta dishes (penne, mac and cheese). They had a variety of baked macaroni dishes like the traditional one topped with breadcrumbs but also one with Flamin' Hot Cheetos garnished on top. Most of these options are skippable in my opinion. You can definitely get better pizza and strombolis (so flavorless) elsewhere. There's chicken pot pie in individual ramekins (amazing), Thai Red Curry Mussels (not great), and a DIY pasta bar.
The Roastery is more meat-based items like roast beef and fried pollock, calamari steaks, but also sliders, mashed potatoes and many different gravies and sauces.
Smoke & Fire has savory comfort food like BBQ ribs, BBQ pulled pork, borracho beans, collard greens, fried chicken, hush puppies, and biscuits. Just the essential BBQ eats.
Sweet & Light is the dessert station. But like the name suggests, the desserts (cookies, cakes, ice cream, bread putting) aren't too rich and indulgent. They have special desserts like eclairs, cream puffs, cobblers and fruit tarts too. Ice cream was okay and the flavors weren't super extraordinary. Just basic flavors like vanilla, chocolate, coffee, pistachio, caramel, but also spumoni and stracciatella. They offer sugar-free flavors too and you can make an ice cream sandwich. I got a cup of the pistachio and the flavor tasted so artificial and sugary.
There was a variety of sushi (the basic California rolls, etc.) at Revival (vegetarian) and also at World Pan but they were terrible. The rice was not soft enough, like it was either not fresh or just cooked wrong. And so it doesn't possess that melt-in-your-mouth quality. I would skip it. Most of the stuff from Smoke & Fire are pretty good, especially the pulled pork. Hands down, the best dish they have is the Chicken Pot Pie. The pie crust is perfect -- the right balance between flaky and buttery. And the filling was deliciously creamy and flavorful.
TL;DR: newly revamped and renovated space, diverse food selection with some standouts (Chicken Pot Pie), lower than average Vegas prices with minimal wait.

An average buffet. We wanted to try something off the strip. It was a champagne brunch so it was a little more than a regular lunch $27 for this meal. The sushi was dry like it sitting around for a while and the roast beef...was also dry. The variety was not a vast as I would have liked. This would not be my first choice for dining at this price point.More
So much better since it's been renovated. I love their Breakfast Buffet cuz they have so many unique food items you don't see on most buffets - quiche, tapioca pudding topped with fresh fruit, cauliflower grits, pesto egg dish and wonderful fresh squeezed Mango juice...that they always run out of!! They have a great selection of fresh fruit too.
They have the standard items like omelettes, bacon, sausage and pancakes, etc. and a nice variety of pastries/breads.
I've tried their lunch buffet but i really prefer the breakfast buffet.

For this late lunch visit, we were 2 couples. 2 Vegetarians, me that likes and can eat almost anything and my wife who is a diabetic and highly sensitive to spicy and acidic foods. Our vegetarian friends found enough choices for their diet although they...said there weren't many protein choices. For me, there were plenty of choices from various cuisines but, every thing I tried was mundane. I love collard greens but, it was very disappointing. For my wife however, there was salad! Really, that was nearly all she could eat without an acid or some heat (spicy). I mean who would think that chicken pot pie would be spicy? It was and quite spicy. She left hungry.
As for the deserts, there was a decent assortment and the gelato bar was great.
Overall though, based on price, atmosphere and assortment, I would still come back.More
My brother and I ate here for lunch one day. Even though the line didn't seem very long, the wait was at least 30 minutes. Once we were inside, we went straight to grab food and weren't thrilled with the selections. They didn't have very...many options and what they did have wasn't amazing. However we did enjoy grabbing a soft serve ice cream cone to go.More
I am glad we only paid $25 for the buffet and we didn't wait too long because it wasn't nothing to special. Most of the food was dry and not very good. The French Onion soup was pretty good and the fried chicken was seasoned...well just really dry. If you are visiting or staying at The Palms I would try other restaurants before choosing the buffet.More
The food was good and diverse. $17.99 for lunch. But, if you get a rewards card (station card), you can save $5-$8 per person. You don’t even have to spend anything before using the discount. We would go back.
