We spent five nights in Vegas and been big food lovers, tried quiet a few hotels and resturants. This buffet at Mandalay is fantastic and for the cost is well worth it. All hotels offer these buffets and they differ greatly. This is $32 dollars so around £28 then you can add the drinks package for extra $7.99(£5.80 which is... More

I love the hotel, casino, and the property..but this buffet was disappointing. I did read the reviews before going there and I thought to myself, "Aw this can't be that bad, I'm not that picky" Wow I was wrong. For just starting lunch time service it seemed like everything was cooked wrong and OLD. Chicken was rubber, eggs were runny.... More

While attending a trade show at the Mandalay Bay I ate twice at the buffet. The first time around I figured that I had hit an off night because of the volume of people from the convention centre. I gave it a second shot the following day and it was worst than the first time. As a matter of fact,... More

Been coming here for years and whilst mandalay maintains its rating as a hotel the buffet just keeps getting worse. Assume they are cost cutting as meats are getting cheaper cuts and even meatballs etc are getting changed and cut back. Cost cutting gone too far. This buffet no longer matches the standard of hotel and is more representative of... More

Awful. Worst buffet we experienced in Vegas. We truly struggled to find enough to eat. First of all... everything had meat in it.. even the salads? We are used to composing our meal of side dishes... but nothing compared to this. Many things were also simply unappetizing, such as poached eggs floating in a pool of water, which were inedible,...

This buffet is wonderful. We ate breakfast there on our first day. The food was hot and there was an excellent selection. Please don't pass this one by. It was so good we went back the next day for lunch.
