Best Buffets in Las Vegas: The Buffet at ARIA

Best Buffets in Vegas - The Buffet at ARIA

In 2017, I visited Las Vegas 5 times which is a personal record! If you're not too familiar with Las Vegas, the buffet scene is a serious thing there. Every hotel big or small offers a buffet and you can often buy these ridiculous unlimited 24 hour passes to selected buffets. While I've never tried the 24 hour passes, I have tried quite a few of the buffets on The Strip. I'm kicking myself for not thinking of this earlier but I'll be introducing the best buffets in Vegas on this blog each time I return to Sin City.

The first buffet I'm sharing is The Buffet at ARIA. It was actually my first time giving it a try since it was so close to where we were staying, the Monte Carlo. I have to say, I was super impressed with Aria's buffet. Just the atmosphere, cleanliness, design and customer service bumped it up to my top 3 favorite Vegas buffets before even trying the food! Don't worry, the food quality and selection went above and beyond my expectations, too.

Why is The Buffet at ARIA one of the best buffets in Las Vegas?


  • The Location: The Buffet at the ARIA hotel is right on 'the strip' of Vegas. In fact, the ARIA hotel is located in the center of the strip so it's easy access from any direction or hotel.  
  • The Service: Most buffets in Vegas will process your payment in the beginning and treat you like cattle. Because of this, I was surprised with the friendly service we received at the entrance while we paid and even more so from our waitresses. Even though they had 10+ tables to deal with, they were friendly, helpful and efficient (both brunch and lunch service!). 
  • The M Life Rewards Perks: If you're a member of the M Life Rewards which is run by MGM Resorts and you're at least a Pearl, you get to use the M Life line to enter the Buffet at ARIA. When we went to brunch on Saturday, there were over 50 people in the regular line and nobody in the M Life line. Win! 
  • The Price (scroll down for detailed pricing): For the quality and selection of food, the prices are incredibly reasonable. In my opinion, the Buffet at ARIA was comparable, if not better than the Bellagio Buffet which is at least $10 more. 
  • The Food Selection & Quality: When it only cost ms $32.99 for weekend brunch, I dreaded the food quality. Boy, was I wrong! The food stations were clearly labeled and separated as well as having a generous selection. You don't just get ham or prime rib at the meat station, you get 5 types of sausages, 2 types of ham, prime rib, New York steak and turkey! The hummus bar had 8+ types of hummus and the Indian cuisine bar was just delightful. Oh and my absolute favorite? The ramen and pho bar! What?! So awesome! 
  • The Dessert Bar: To me, dessert is very important (anyone else?). The fact that the dessert bar is just as big as the other food stations made me a happy camper! The selection is vast and beautifully presented. I especially enjoyed the turning gelato tub; the birthday cake gelato and the mandarin yuzu were my favorites!

  1. That price is actually cheap (in my opinion as it's almost the same price of hotel buffets over where I live and food is cheaper here)! I didn't know 24 hour buffets are a thing?! No wonder it's really sin city!

    1. Isn't it? That's what I thought too! Couldn't believe how reasonable it was in comparison to their quality and selection. YES - 24 hour buffet passes; go to as many buffets as you want in a 24 hour period, crazy isn't it? Haha! xo
