The Spice Market Buffet is located in the Aladdin Hotel and opens for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. As we were stating at the Aladdin we had our breakfasts and a couple of evening meals here. You enter the restaurant via the casino (no surprises there) and go down an escalator, and pay on entry. You are then escorted to a table and told to help yourself.
Breakfast: 8–10.30am. We had several breakfasts here and paid $12 each. Although this was more than some of the other places it was convenient and had excellent choices. You could basically wander from counter to counter choosing anything from the huge range of foods. They had bacon, sausages, hash browns, fried potatoes, pancakes, eggs made to order, muffins, cakes, fruit, the list goes on and on. You have to remember to ask you server for toast when you fist sit down as it seems to take a while for them to bring it to you. If you forget to ask straight away you may have finished your breakfast before you get it. Obviously the cost also includes fruit juices, tea, coffee etc. At weekends it is called Brunch and served between 8.30am – 2.30pm and costs approx $16.
Dinner: 4–9.30pm. The food for dinner ($20) is separated into areas of the world i.e. Asian, American, Mexican, Italian etc. There was a separate area for desserts. You can either choose to be boring and stick to one type of food or go mad and have some of each. It gives you a chance to be a big kid and have things you wouldn’t normally have a chance to combine. The choices of each type were huge. The Italian section had lots of different pizzas, pasta dishes, garlic bread etc. Other options included various meats carved off the bone, seafood such as crabs, salmon etc. There really is an endless list. I would imagine that even the fussiest of eaters, including kids would find something here to please. The desserts are amazing, my only complaint is that you will have eaten so much you wont be able to eat dessert.
Lunch is served between 11am–2.30pm and costs $14.
Overall I would say the choice and quality of the food was unbeatable, even for Vegas standards where buffets are king. My only gripe would be the service, which although adequate, was sometimes very slow. We were often left with no drinks and had to flag staff down to get refills. This is very poor by US standards but seemed to reflect the overall attitude of staff at the Aladdin.
