I asked about gluten free food I could eat and they brought out the chef who was very knowledgeable and so helpful. It was nice they I was treated with so much kindness and not like I was wasting his time. Food was good! It was nice to enjoy a variety of food with my family!

Nothing is marked gluten free. You have to ask for the chef to walk you down the line and try to remember what is gluten free and what isn't. I was told the chicken tacos were gluten free, but they tested positive for gluten with my Nima (the only place I tried in Vegas based on recommendations in this app that failed the Nima test). I told the Chef and he listed the ingredients and said it should be gluten free. I asked about cross contamination and he looked confused and listed the ingredients again. I wouldn't consider this place celiac safe and more that gluten free means "no gluten ingredients." I felt much safer at Wicked Spoon as far as buffets go, but that's more expensive with a longer line. Just sticking to other restaurants recommended on this app is probably the best option if you are celiac as several of them have really amazing food (although check if reservations are needed).

After reading reviews here I gave it a go and was so happy I did! I notified the host and they told me they’d get the chef for me. The chef came out and walked me from station to station telling me what was safe and what wasn’t. He even told me they had gf carrot and chocolate cakes (made in a small, dedicated gf bakery nearby) behind the salad bar, to just ask the attendants back there. I had both and they were amazing! Chef was just as knowledgeable if not more than myself about celiac disease. He even made me an entire loaf of gf French toast as a surprise and hand delivered it to me. Cannot recommend enough!

I always get so worried while traveling. Usually only eating things I go and buy at a local store that has certified gluten free items or I pack a lot of snacks. However, after reading the reviews and being extremely hungry I decided to give a buffet a go. (And I usually stay very far away from buffets for mainly cross contamination reasons but also that most people don't even know what gluten is in. At The Buffet at Luxor, Chef William was beyond helpful. He was amazing, so knowledgeable, and very friendly! He walked with my husband and me around the entire place telling me everything that was ok and everything that was not. He even told me about how he asks for every single ingredient from a company (the sausage company kept refusing to give him the ingredient list because it was a family secret and so he recommended I just stay away). He had all his other line chefs trained and the lady behind the dessert/sushi bar even had some gluten free desserts for me behind the counter and they were amazing! I did not get sick other then eating way too much of all the delicious food I was finally allowed to eat.

This was such a wonderful experience! The reviews here were great so we went to go check it out. Upon arrival, we let the hostess know that I have an “allergy” so they let us go and look/talk to the chef before paying (wow). The head chef actually personally came out and told me his story as well as walked me around the whole buffet indicating everything I could/couldn’t eat—there were only a couple of things I could not have (donuts, waffles/pancakes, pizza, croutons…that sort of stuff, and he explained that he could not confirm on the sausage because the manufacturers would not disclose to him so he said to avoid those)! He was knowledgeable about celiacs and told me all about their process so I felt confident eating! We filled up on breakfast food but I will be back for some carrot cake!

One of the most amazing restaurant experiences I’ve had. I’m gluten and dairy free. The head chef gave us a tour and ran through everything I could and couldn’t have. He was even sweet enough to bring me a special plate of desserts after. 10/10 highly recommend.

Based on the reviews, I asked about the gf options and was also given the grand tour by Chef William. He was super nice and there were tons of options to choose from. He said they are starting to label some of the buffet staples as gf but not everything safe is labeled so it is better to ask. Also, there were gf cakes from a local bakery available if you asked for them at the dessert area.

My only concern is that while the chef was awesome, some of the other employees weren’t as aware and I needed to ask the woman giving me the cake to change her gloves because she just picked it up right out of the box. Did not get sick though so just keep a normal amount of caution watching how the workers serve the food.

Great experience. After reading a previous review I asked to speak with head chef. Head chef came to my table and walked me through the buffet. I was very impressed with his knowledge and understanding of the allergies. I did ask about the hand made gluten free French toast and he was beyond happy to make it for me.

The chef Michael came out and gave us a tour of the buffet telling us what items were made in house and safe, what items were risky for celiac but ok for an intolerance, and what to avoid. He had gluten free bread in the back and personally made gluten free French toast for my celiac son. He also keeps a GF chocolate cake in the back from a local GF bakery. Our server Rafael was excellent also. My son was very happy with his breakfast.

The staff were so nice when I told them about my allergy. The chef came out and walked me around the entire buffet telling me what would be safe. I had an omelette made with the request of real eggs (instead of the liquid) and it was one of the most delicious omelettes I’ve ever had. They even had gluten free dessert options for me! I was originally stressed to go the he buffet but this was a great experience.

More Buffet's dinner at the Luxor was great. I have Celiac Disease and the buffet provided a lot of gluten free options for me. At the hostess stand, they offered to have the chef show me the options prior to paying for the buffet. The chef took me on a tour of the buffet lines showing me what is and is not gluten free. The gluten free options on the buffet ranged from sliced beef to tacos. The buffet even had two different gluten free cake options for dessert. All of the food was tasty! And of course the important part is that I did not get sick.I definitely recommend the More Buffet at the Luxor.

The staff were very Knowledgeable. To the point of the Chef walking me through the line and naming everything that was GF. For things that sometimes/often have hidden gluten (like ribs) he went through the ingredients to ensure the sauce did not contain wheat. Even went over the sauces and dressings that can and can’t be eaten. Was very reassuring that he knew all the ingredients and exactly what was and wasn’t Gluten Free. Shows it’s not just a guess and the fact that he’s willing to walk through each item with you and answer any questions is comforting for someone so sensitive.

As with all the reviews, except for two, great visit. Chef Bill came out and walked through the Whole menu. Told us which items to stay away from, and options for some items they could turn into GF by removing roux base from the final presentation. GF desserts, you just have to ask. To the few people who gave bad reviews, if you don't ask for help, then it wouldn't be a good visit. I don't expect the chef to label items GF, but just ask, was a phenomenal meal. Unlike most places, there was about 60% of items I could eat. Will definitely return!

I stayed at this hotel and ate here due to the fabulous reviews. However, my experience, not so fabulous! The chef did walk me around and we discussed the food, Celiac, cross contamination. He assured me if I stuck to what he pointed out I would be fine. Nope, three hours of puking followed that brunch. I do NOT recommend eating here at all!

Not quite safe. Nothing is marked and my $20 meal pretty much consisted of pot stickers and ground beef...not many other options other than rice and a baked potato. Really ridiculous. Dessert option were carrot cake, but they can't tell you what flour it's made with in case you have any other restrictions, or sorbet. Will never go back.

I went to this buffet last week for dinner and was pretty happy with the service and options. I told the server that I had celiac disease and they let the head chef know and he came out and gave me a tour of the entire buffet line and pointed out what was safe and what was not. For dinner there was turkey and ham at the carving station, the entire tex-mex line including a really tasty pork chili verde, several shellfish and crawfish dishes, mashed potatoes, most of the salad bar, and five deserts including a good carrot cake and surprisingly good creme brule. The chef even came out later during the meal just to check up on me. I suppose it bears mentioning that the buffet at the Luxor is one of the more economical ones on the strip, so you get a lot of good solid food but if you want caviar and prime rib you'll need to go elsewhere and pay twice as much. However, the food is good and there was a good selection of food for a celiac. I had no issues at all, not even any acid reflux or heartburn which is usually my warning sign of minor contamination (i.e., someone with hands that had touched bread touched my plate, have someone remove croutons from a salad that I eat and I'm in the bathroom for two days!).

The chef came to our table and took us on a tour of the enormous buffet. He was friendly and eager to help. There were tons of dinner options. Some items that normally aren't safe are made from scratch and are safe for those with gluten allergies. I'm also dairy free and even that was easy to accommodate as well. There were even 2 options for gluten and dairy free desserts! Not all of the people manning the stations were able to answer questions, but they were able to find someone to check with.
