    it's been a couple of years, it was better than average, not great. I would only go with a coupon. the state of things change fast. I'm sure others can chime in with a recent review.

    I went a couple of years ago for lunch. Was not impressed at all. It had gone really downhill. Maybe dinner would have been better.

    I saw a groupon the other day basically buy one get one free if you are going soon. 12 years since I ate there when it was Aladdin. Was great then but as others say...not sure of now.

    We ate there a couple years ago. Not horrible (MGM and MB are horribly IMO), but not great. They did have hot crab legs (special request in the VIP section only, maybe?) and cold on the buffet, already split. I did see that crab legs aren't listed on the buffet menu anymore, so maybe someone can confirm if they're still offered if that's something you might be interested in. When we ate, it was with the groupon promo they had at the time. I guess it was worth the price we paid (about 1/2 off). I don't know if they offered this to everyone, but our server brought us two HUGE plates full of hot crab legs and when we were done brought two hot wet towels with lemon halves to clean our hands and these chocolate covered brownies on sticks. The brownies had the PH logo and were delicious.

    I've been there twice, both on the Groupon. First time I thought it was pretty good and a good value for the cost. Second time I thought it was pretty bad. Even though I'm batting .500 there are enough other options that I doubt I'll go back.

    We have had many breakfast buffets and really enjoy. We are not dinner buffet people but do eat at them once in a while. We have had that a few times (PHo is our home casino) and it is hit and miss, prime rib and carving station is good and the different ethnical food choices is alright. Probably would be a 6.5-7.0 on a 10 scale...............Rick

    I like that buffet because Im not a big meat eater. When I went a couple years ago, they had made to order pizza and made to order burgers. I think they have a few stations that you can order things freshly made. Its a great buffet for someone that doesn't have a very sophisticated pallet (this guy right here!). Im not a gourmet food person, my menu is similar to a 10 year old so this buffet is awesome for me!

    You just described my husband. Maybe that's why he suggests Spice Market any time I bring up trying the buffet at Wynn or Wicked Spoon at Cosmo!

    It's the third best buffet in the caesars chain. Definitely hit it if you buy the 24 hour pass. Good steamed crab.

    We've eaten at Spice Market a number of times, including two weeks ago. Breakfast is overpriced and not good. We went in at the tail end intendinh to eat lunch and noted that the pancakes were burnt black. The meats, pastas, and desserts have always been good.

    Not a fan. Station casinos breakfast buffets easily surpass PH at a fraction of the price.
    Lunch is so-so and not on par with the better Strip buffets. Haven't done dinner for a couple years.

    It's perfectly acceptable, but nothing I'd go to for anything in particular.

    Don't pay full price either, there always seem to be 2-4-1 coupons or $5 off each coupons floating around the internet, on Groupon or similar sites, or available at the Tix4Tonight booths.

    Spice Market Buffet is something i might try this summer simply because of the Mediterranean Food they offer. My doctor has a diet plan i must follow and mentioned that Persian food (my doctor is Middle Eastern) would be better than most other buffets because it's healthier.
    I usually eat at Ports o Call in Vegas because it's cheap and OK, but i have to adjust now. I know that there will be fruits and veggies at my disposal, but i will need protein that is low in sodium and low cholesterol.

    We always go there during our 24 hr B of B time. Since I doubt that most people go to buffets for high-end dining....it is a good standard buffet....last month did a dinner...nice seafood selection & if you are plat or diamond....they will steam a plate of split crab legs & bring to your table. Salads were fresh with a limited selection...corn chowder soup was very good. If you like bread pudding...don't miss theirs with the vanilla sauce. Breakfast is all the normal selections....bacon was hot & crisp....omelet station line can get long if there is a big crowd . Hubby liked that they had non-lumpy grits....lol

    I enjoyed it.

    I especially liked the Mediterranean and Indian options.

    My last visit was about 18 months ago. Used to be my favorite in Vegas, but it has gone downhill. Food offerings are very average, not worth the price anymore.

    It's fine. I wouldn't pay full price - get a Travelzoo or Groupon(it shows up on either of those). We tend to do it for an easy brunch or lunch.

    I still like the PH buffet. Not great anymore like it was when it first opened but a reliable choice. As good as any non-upgraded B of B option. Yes the coupons are everywhere
