Comments=Was a little skeptical...buffet was included in tour of Red Rock Canyon. Turned out to be worth a trip. Has an International theme similar to Rio's. Good variety of entrees, smaller crowds as it's away from the Strip. It's a new hotel, so everything is clean and fresh.  Appeared to attract a lot of locals from the surrounding neighborhoods.

First Visit=Yes

Comments=We won a $250 Jackpot so we went in to celebrate. Our $250 didn't go far with 4 of us but it was one of the BEST meals I have ever had. The help could not have been nicer. They didn't care if we spent $250 or $5 they were as nice and as helpful and friendly as could be. The steaks were absolutely delicious. I have had Ruth Chris's steaks and thought they couldn't be beat but I think Austin's are even better. Pretty pricey but GREAT for a special occasion.

Makino

Time=11:30am
Courtesy=Great
Neatness=Great
Visit=No
Recommend=Yes
Comments= Forget the hotels! Makino offers the best buffet when it comes to food and service. You are promptly greeted at the door by a very polite and friendly Japanese lady. There's salads which are fresh and green with a light oriental dressing for the health conscious; fried rice, chow mein, teriyaki chicken, assorted seafood, sukiyaki (one of my favorites), and of course, a variety of eye-catching sushi for the daring and the timid. Desserts range from naturally sweet fruit to sensibly bite-size desserts.  Believe me, it's hard to eat everything that's offered; there's just too much good stuff! I usually end up coming back the next day to try the things I missed because my mouth wants to keeping saying "yes" while my stomach groans "no"!  The price is about the same as the buffets at Bellagio and Paris. Drink refills are very quick as well as removal of dirty plates. Extra utensils and napkins are always readily available. Check this place out on Decatur at Flamingo in the Renaissance West Plaza!  I sincerely recommend it!

Thai BBQ 1/9/01
Time=1:00pm
Courtesy=Great
Neatness=Great
Previous Visit=No
Recommend=Yes
Comments=The saying that "looks can be deceiving" really applies to this place. I believe they could increase their business twofold if the location wasn't a dumpy looking plaza. This restaurant is situated in between a bar and a run-down Laundromat, and the other shops look like they're out of business. The only thing that attracted me to this area was the bright red and yellow signpost advertising "Thai BBQ", and the fact that I was starving. I decided to take a chance, and was I in for a pleasant surprise. The inside of the restaurant looked  clean and the service was fast and very friendly. I had the best fried rice and beef sate, and I ordered more to go. The sweet and sour sauce was too sweet for my liking and the eggrolls had too much meat, but that's just a minor complaint. However, one time I ordered a "lard-na" noodle dish where I got a big container full of the gravy sauce but very little of the noodles. I thought maybe the cook was in a rush or something; Go for the fried rice lunch specials; they're the best deals in town, and don't be intimidated by the locale because overall, the food and service are worth it. The restaurant can be found on Jones just a little past Flamingo.
