- This was the place that started our obsession with Indian food. We go when we are in Vegas and its always good but super expensive for Indian, not sure why so pricey it's at the Rio not Bellagio or the Wynn so that is our only complaint. Have eaten at the Gaylord's in San Fran and sausalito and they were good as well.
- Mattar Paneer (cubed farmer's cheese and peas in a delicious gravy), Beghan Barta (baked eggplant with onions and tomatoes with spices), and Aloo Gobi (cauliflower and potatoes baked with herbs and spices). All the flavors were rich and wonderful. My favorite was the cheese and peas, followed by the baked eggplant. I love that Indian food has so many flavorful vegetarian options. It was a fantastically satisfying lunch.
- ...having eaten at all of the Gaylord's in San Fran over the years,why are the prices 20 to 50 percent higher than in the bay area? It's like buying a soft drink at the airport,you feel ripped off because you know what the prices should be. Here's an example: Tandoori prawns in the SF location are 22 bucks,in the LV location ,it's $30.
- The service IS slow and non-responsive, but we have come to terms with the fact that it will be a 90 minute meal. The food is well-worth the snail pace. It is expensive, but well worth it. Try to make the buffet for a much cheaper meal. Be sure and try the delicious Mango Lassi. They have perfected the balance of spices, which can be hard to find if you are a fan of Mango Lassi. I highly recommend giving Gaylord's a chance, maybe you will come to love them as well!
- I had the chicken tikka masala with garlic naan and it was everything I wanted. The portions were just the right size and the sauce was delicious. The service was wonderful and surprisingly better than some higher end restaurants. We were seated quickly and never really had to wait long for anything.
- This place was amazing! I'm a vegan and they were very accommodating both times I went to vegas to make sure we found the vegan items on the menu. The second time we had a party there w/ a group of friends and pre-ordered a vegan feast and everybody loved it - and they weren't vegans.
