Like the casino itself, the Buffet called Flavors at Harrah’s Las Vegas Hotel & Casino is a mid-level, handy, and moderately priced alternative.
Flavors, the Buffet, as it’s officially known, is positioned in the heart of the casino, closer to the exit doors that go to Casino Royale next door than the casino floor itself.
The open and rather simple décor is appropriate for a nice, reasonably-priced buffet.
Dishes on the Plate
As the breakfast buffet at Flavor is quite standard (pastries, egg dishes, sausages, bacon, an omelet station, pancakes, and Belgian waffles), we’ll focus on the dinner buffet here.
Lucky Charms, Total, Frosted Flakes, and the like are available in tiny, individual boxes if you can’t get enough cereal at home.
There are eight primary stations, which we’ll refer to as “Salad, Mexican, Seafood, Italian, Carving, Asian, Dessert, and Beverage,” during the lunch and dinner buffets.
The salad bar of Harrah’s it’s called “Fresh”.
Regular lettuce, mixed greens, eight various salad dressings, and the normal array of condiments are all available in the salad section.
Broccoli and artichoke salads are among the pre-made salads available. I couldn’t find any fresh fruits under “Fresh,” since all of the alternatives were canned.
There is a taco bar here called Ole, where you can get your fill of ground beef or chicken fajitas in taco shells, chips, or tortillas. The usual suspects are on hands, such as guacamole, salsa, and nacho cheese. Chicken tamales and pig sopes are also available in the Ole neighborhood. For whatever reason, the barbecued pork ribs are included here.
You’ll also find a soup option, which may include chicken posole, clam chowder, and/or a sweet corn and shrimp soup to the right of Ole on any given night.
seafood Station for preparing and serving seafood
Crab legs are the star of this dish, which is dubbed “Splash.”
Cajun EZ-Peel Shrimp, fried shrimp, mussels, “Marinated green-lip mussels from New Zealand,” saffron rice, tilapia scampi, hushpuppies, french fries, coleslaw, and a crab salad are all on the menu at this establishment.
Sushi, Chinese dumplings, and fried rice are just some of the Asian-themed items on the menu. Other items include pork buns, chow mein, pepper steak with a plum sauce option, and spring rolls.
The little individual shooter dishes are a special touch and a welcome change from the usual fare served from a huge steel pan. A seaweed shooter and an orange scallop shooter with cranberry sauce are included in this set.
Several Asian-inspired soups and congee are included on the menu (which is an Asian rice porridge).
Simple meats such as prime ribs, turkey, and kielbasa sausage may be found in Flavor’s carving section.
In addition to all of the main courses, there are a variety of side dishes available to accompany the carving station. These include anything from green beans to steamed broccoli and cauliflower to macaroni and cheese to stuffing to baked beans to brown gravy-topped mashed potatoes.
Spaghetti, lasagna, penne, ravioli, sausage and peppers, linguine & clams (on weekends), and pizza are all available at the pasta bar (there were four varieties on a recent visit).
Other options include grilled pork marsala and garlic break.
This isn’t quite the biggest dessert buffet in town, just referred to as “Sweet”.
As a result of this, you can expect to see apple and cherry pies and other desserts like flan and crème brûlée at this Buffet.
Ice cream is available, of course, and the cookies and cream ice cream here are a big hit with customers! Strawberry, pineapple, and chocolate chip gelato varieties were available on a recent trip.
At the self-serve beverage station, you’ll find a Pepsi dispenser with hundreds of drink and flavour combinations and the standard selection of coffees, iced tea, cappuccino, normal milk, and skim milk. Other selections include orange juice, grapefruit, cranberry, and apple juices.

Flavors the Buffet is a good value for the money, particularly compared to the other buffets on the Las Vegas Strip.
Even though it doesn’t have its toilets in the restaurant area, it’s not a deal-breaker since most of us eat so much food at a buffet that a little additional walking doesn’t appear to be a negative thing considering how much food most of us eat at a buffet.
