The Best Hotel Buffet

What we regard as the best hotel buffet in the world has also been described as the longest, though there are now several other claimants to the record in length. All we know is that it takes 10 to 15 minutes just to walk from beginning to end of the Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, USA.
Having personally sampled the buffet at over a thousand hotels around the world, we believe the Bacchanal Buffet is deliciously distinctive both in quantity and quality.
In terms of quantity, there are literally hundreds of daily offerings spread out over 25,000 square feet, with something for everyone, including the most enthusiastic eat-all-you-can aficionado. The variety ranges from strictly healthy items like the Acai Breakfast Bowl, fibre-rich salads, gluten-free options and freshly-squeezed juices to decadent diet-destroying delights at the centre-island dessert bar – and seemingly everything in-between!
Apart from classic American fare, there are also offerings from the eight other ‘show kitchens’ namely Mexican, Italian, Seafood, Pizza, Deli, Desserts, Japanese and Chinese. Guests from South and South-East Asia will be delighted to discover the sumptuous seafood laksa and curry dishes evocative of the mouth-watering traditions of India, Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia.
Our personal favourites must be the outstanding Cantonese selections of dim sum, noodles and stir-fry dishes – probably the best we have tasted anywhere in the entire USA, if not in Europe as well. Tucked away at the very end of the buffet-table, they awaited us every morning with authentic Cantonese-style serveware, including bowls, chopsticks and even toothpicks! Cantonese-speaking guests from Southern Chinese provinces like Hong Kong, Macau, Guangdong and Guangxi, as well as the global Nanyang diaspora will feel very much at home with this section of the buffet. Interestingly , Japanese guests were also enthusiastic in their affirmation that the food in the Japanese station was authentic and decidedly “oishi”!
Overall, the quality of the Bacchanal Buffet would satisfy the most demanding gourmand.  Ranked “Number One Buffet in the country” by the New York Post, it has also won accolades from publications as diverse as USA Today, Thrillist, Food Beast and Travel+Leisure. From the much-lauded crab-legs and delectable oysters to the luxurious Wagyu beef and dry-rubbed smoked spare-ribs, to the garden-fresh vegetables and the impressive choices in sauces, we found an attention to detail and a passion for perfection that belies its gargantuan size.
It is these finer qualities that led us to dub the Bacchanal Buffet at Caesars Palace as the Best Hotel Buffet in the world!
