Respond to Review of Wynn Casino Buffet
Review: I ate at a few of the Wynn restaurants on my recent Vegas trip. Overall, I was impressed with the staff's knowledge, and from my experience would say that this place can accurately be described as a vegan friendly hotel/casino. First I ate at Red 8, an Asian restaurant just off the casino floor. We found the waitress to be very helpful. She explained to us what was vegan on the menu, and even offered a suggestion that wasn't on the menu (a vegan Kung Pao made with, I believe Gardein veggie chicken- very good!). We had edamame, a veg dim sum sampler plate and the Kung Pao. A delicious meal. Next I ate at Pizza Place, a counter style pizza restaurant in the mall area of the complex. The staff was again friendly and understanding. They had a couple of vegan options including vegan pizza by the pie on request. We got a tofu parmigiana sandwich, which honestly wasn't the best I've ever had, but wasn't terrible either. I would've liked it better if they'd have used Daiya cheese, or at least tried to make a better effort to melt the Teese. The next day we went to the Buffet. I have to admit, I was skeptical about this one, but my fears were laid to rest very quickly. We told the hostess that two in our party were vegan, and she asked if we'd like the chef to come out and give us a walk. I was expecting a hurried, impatient, somewhat annoyed breeze past the buffet stations, but instead was surprised by a very enjoyable experience. We were greeted by a very friendly, cheery chef that pointed out, in great detail what was and was not vegan. He really made me feel comfortable and at home. The sheer number of options was incredible! MUCH more than I expected. Salads, Indian dishes, Chinese (even veg egg rolls!), Sushi.... vegan pizzas (the one they made us had oyster mushrooms and capers on it-delicious!)and pastas both prepared on request. Everything I tried was amazing. They even had a couple of non dairy sorbets on the dessert bar. I would definitely recommend it for lunch or dinner, and would definitely go back when I'm in Vegas again.
