“Not worth the price”
Review of Plates International Buffet - CLOSED

Plates International Buffet
Restaurant details
Reviewed 4 January 2017 via mobile

We didn't feel that the buffet was worth the price but the food was pretty good.
Definitely the best buffet sushi we'd ever had.
There were many dishes that we avoided because they looked like they had been sitting for a long time, specifically the pastas and potato salad looked crusty.
There was a lot of shrimp but no crab legs like the pictures posted on their website and here. They had chunks of deep fried fake crab.
Would we go back? Not for the price.

Thank Gorrell

We were there for New Year's brunch, food not bad but could be better with the selection. We did not mind paying the price for it on this day but when they charged us 15% gratuity for 5 people (sign says 15% for 6 people) just "because is a holiday and we have to pay staff time and a half" we got turned off by this statement. Management should be more professional, they need to be trained better to serve the public, just saw a very poorly trained management.
Sticky rice is too dry, need more stuffing, fried noodles are too greasy, beef in pho is tough.
Love the shrimp tempura and the sushi.
Deserts are too sweet.

Recommended to try this Vegas style buffet. Called to make same day reservation for evening meal during their lunch hours, of course they did not pick up, had to go through automated voice system to leave message. Called again near the end of lunch and still no human voice. Finally got a return call near closing time of 3 and booked table, not good impression overall thus far.

Upon arrival there were larger parties waiting for tables, they did not have reservations, recommend strongly to make reservation versus walking in whether it's small or large party. We still waited for a table despite having made reservation. At 7pm still pretty busy,

Japanese was bare and the sashimi and crispy maki rolls are great. Soups levels were down and did not seem to be priority for refill. The server was great despite his attempts at humor. Pop, coffee/tea are included in price; kids and seniors are different prices and holidays seems more expensive so beware.

Chinese section was on far side on way to washroom with vietnamese pho and limited dim sum, don't get the dim sum as it has been sitting out getting old and soggy. The pho seems to be made on the spot. There was prime rib and beef rib remaining along with au jus.though it was difficult to access. As it got closer to closing time (1 hour), food was not being replenished fast enough or even replenished, dessert was at minimum though you could get crepe made with loads of jam mixture.

This place was another food establishment and that was supposedly high end eatery; this buffet does not meet Vegas standards though it seemed to have the high volume of clients and staff running off their feet to keep up with the demand. There are a few buffet places in town and they have been disappointing; not sure this will be any better in the end, for now it is decent for the $35 adult price. If you have guests it might be the easiest way to satisfy varying taste buds.

Food were very bad ! Most of the food are dried out and pretty salted . A person charged 54.95 for that buffer is not a good deal. I'm not recommended to be honest
