With the line as long as it was, I expected some good eating, but found myself disappointed by the quality. I tried a little bit of everything. The turkey breast was moist, but did not have the distinctive turkey taste you would find on Thanksgiving day. The oriental choices looked delicious, but with the addition of undercooked and crunchy rice, it was almost inedible. Delicious rolls and biscuits were stacked high. The taco/fajita fixings were the highlight. As with most buffets, I did not give more than a passing glance to the salads and fruit bars. The dessert row was very bountiful, with all sorts of cake, pie, cheesecake, cookies, and soft-serve ice cream.

I'd have to say that the quality and choice, compared to other (sometimes cheaper) options on the Strip, was not great. You did not, for example, get the rib/shrimp that the Excalibur offered, and the choice of beverages was not as wide as the Excalibur's either. The "Italian" options were the ropiest. The pizza was dull and dry and the pasta sticky and soggy.
I can say that, bar the pickiest of eaters, you will find something tasty to fill up on. There are meat and fish dishes (mostly in sauces and gravys to keep them moist, obviously) and salad, fresh fruit, a couple of soups, and a dessert counter. The desserts were things like apple pie and cheesecake - they were OK.
I'd say that at about $19 a head, you can do better without much searching. OK if you're in the Luxor and can't be bothered to walk - not worth the walk if you're not.

The food was well-presented, and the staff was very friendly and seemed like a happy bunch. The selection for vegetarians was great, and they had a great salad bar! So they were sticking true to the healthy nature of Egyptian dining.
I would recommend this buffet if you're looking for variety and good food!
Some of things to see on your plate:
Dressings: ranch, Italian, French, raspberry, olive oil, carrot
Range from Italian to traditional American to Chinese and Thai
What to expect on your plate: salmon, lasagne, rice, chicken, shrimp, pizza, egg rolls, mashed potatoes, all sorts of pasta, sauteed garden veggies, stir-fry
Brace yourself! Pies, cookies, tarts, cheesecake, brownies, make-your-own ice cream sundaes, pumpkin pie, and sugar-free options too!
Believe me--if you're looking for a budget place that's worth your stomach and money, this feast is worth it. Let me know what you think and if you've been to other ones in Vegas!

Don't even think of coming here for breakfast unless you've built up an appetite because the presentation and selection is so appealing that you're going to want to try a little bit of everything.
The lay out is spacious with lots of room between the long buffet tables that are piled with sausages, ham, bacon, potatoes, pancakes, eggs, salads, fruit and pastries galore and more items than I can remember.
Seating is rather tacky because there is such a long line up that you feel like part of a cattle herd as you shuffle along but the wait isn't usually longer than 15 minutes and once seated, the booths have enough space between them that you do have some privacy.
We've not been here for the lunch or dinner buffet - usually we eat so much during a late breakfast that it keeps us full for most of the day.
A word of caution - if you plan to make a habit of eating at buffets, you better make a habit of getting lots of exercise to burn off those calories.

The staff is very helpful. Once you pay for your buffet, a server seats you at your table and comes back often to refill drinks. The buffet is found on the lower level of the hotel and can be entered via the casino. I have also heard that their breakfast buffet is great.

The Pharoah's Pheast has everything you could ask for in a buffet: fried chicken, tacos, Italian, etc., and that's just dinner. Breakfast had eggs, sausage, cereals, toast, bagels, and more. The food was hot and tasty, and filled us up enough to enjoy our day of gambling and shopping on the Strip.
The waitstaff at Luxor was always there if you needed a soda or coffee or tea, and they refilled glasses every 5 to 10 minutes. They were courteous and professional, and worked fast among the crowds.
Be sure to get to Luxor early in order to get a good seat and to avoid waiting in line for a table. Reservations are accepted for large groups. Luxor is open 24 hours a day for all three meals.
