The Aria Resort and Casino prides itself as the biggest and tallest structure at the CityCenter Complex on the Las Vegas Strip. Its two towers of curved glass and steel occupy 4 million square feet and they stand up to 600 feet in the air. It’s also the largest hotel in the world to have earned the LEED Gold certification, and many consider it as perhaps the most technologically advanced hotel on Earth.
So of course, the guests here can’t be served with any ordinary buffet. The food items they offer at the Aria Buffet have all been carefully prepared. The treats and especially the desserts are world class, and ironically they also use traditional tools such as an authentic Tandoor Oven to prepare dishes like naan bread.

A Brief History
The hotel started out just recently in 2009 and its focus is not on any particular theme. Yet they offer a delightful mix of classical art along with highly advanced technology. Their lobby is a showcase of natural materials, from stone and glass, to wood and flowers. Their technology isn’t about simply being advanced. Instead, the tech features are all about the conservation of energy and the preservation of the environment.
That same mix of contemporary and classical can be found in the Aria Buffet. The place is large, but it’s also relaxing. It underwent a major upgrade back in 2013, so it looks much better than ever.
The number of stations has been increased from 8 to 11, so that the buffet can compete with other notable buffets in the Strip. The prices are quite reasonable, especially if you have children in tow. It’s all about comfort and relaxation here, as you enjoy fine dining and comfy settings at very affordable prices.
What They’re Famous For
The place is actually quite large, which isn’t surprising given that the hotel itself is huge. Yet at the same time, it offers a nicely intimate vibe that’s very comfortable for everyone. They’re open every day from 7AM to 10PM, and the cuisine is mostly American. Yet there are plenty of nice options from the 11 stations.
Here you have Asian cuisine from China, Japan, and Thaliand, and of course there’s plenty of dim sum. Other choices include Italian, Mediterranean (Middle East and North Africa), and Latin (South America, Mexico, and Spain).
You have Tandoori options, fresh seafood including unlimited crab legs, and meats that have been smoked, grilled, or slowly roasted. There’s New York-style pizza, along with gluten-free options. You’ve got salads and sweets galore—you can create your own salads with the toppings options available.
Of course, for many the reliable star of the show is the Diner station with its plethora of American comfort food options. In Las Vegas, after a while you can get tired of the many exotic dishes. Sometimes you just want something familiar, and here you can get chicken fried steak and spiced meatloaf, grilled corn on the cob, and the famous red velvet stuffed pancakes.
The pricing is quite variable, depending on whether you’re going for brunch or dinner on a weekday or weekend. On weekdays if you’re staying at the hotel, you can get an all-day pass at the buffet for just $60 on weekends.
Kids are very much welcome here, as children from ages 5 to 12 can get a gourmet dinner for free (that’s 4 kids for every 1 paying adult). For breakfast and lunch, the kiddies only pay half-price, and on weekday adults only pay $25 for breakfasts, $29 for brunches, and $39 for dinner. On weekends, adult brunches cost $34 and gourmet dinners cost $44.
What about the drinks? If you’re an adult and you want to relax with a bit of alcohol, then for 2 hours you and a partner can enjoy unlimited options for just $20 total. These include cocktails like mimosas, Bloody Marys, Margaritas, rum punches, and champagne. You can also get wine and premium beer on tap.
Why Eat Here?
If you have 4 kids with you, then that’s a question that’s easily answered. Here they can eat as much as they can, and they can find all their favorite foods along with a large variety of desserts to choose from. They only pay half-price during the day and then for dinner they eat for free!
Yet even without kids it’s easy to understand why you’d want to visit the Aria Buffet. It’s bright and contemporary, and there’s no artifice to the place. It feels simply natural and relaxing. There’s no pressure. You can try exotic Tandoori dishes or food items from the Mediterranean, or go for basic American comfort foods that relax you.
It’s that simple: you can relax here. The food is great, the prices are reasonable, and the settings are comfy. What more do you need when you’re taking a break? At the Aria Buffet, the food and the bottomless drinks for 2 hours can give you the breather you need.
