Many of the best Indian restaurants in Las Vegas make a point to have a buffet available—at least during lunch hours. It's hard to beat the selection at Taj Palace, which has all-you-can-handle servings of chicken tikka masala, lamb biryani, kabobs, and other signature dishes. The restaurant uses gluten-free recipes and organic ingredients whenever possible. Naan bread is brought to the table warm and fresh. Feel free to mix up a few different curries and sauces on the same plate and see what happens. Anything spicy can be tempered with a glass of mango lassi, a thick combination of fruit, millk, and yogurt.
Cost: Daily brunch is $15.99 11 am-3 pm.

Taj Palace is known for having one of the best Indian lunch buffets in Vegas ($15.99, 11 am–3 pm), although you won't be disappointed with the a la carte dinner service either. The restaurant tries to use organic ingredients as much as possible. Everything is gluten-free. Breads are baked fresh and brought to the table; never on standby in the buffet line. Recipes tend to favor the northern part of India with rich, creamy sauces that aren't too spicy—although an inferno ghost chili is on standby for the ambitious. Everything on the regular menu is made to order and anything hot can be tempered with a sip of mango lassi, which combines the fruit with yogurt and milk. The dining room maintains a certain cultural ambiance with hand-drawn murals decorating the walls.
