Not too pricey restaurants and breakfast places

We'll be in Vegas for 3 nights next month staying at the Vdara hotel. Can anyone tell me some good restaurants nearby that won't break the bank as well as breakfast places that aren't too expensive. We don't drink by the way.
Thank you.

      1)The $20.12 3-course lunch at Milos in Cosmopolitan is the best deal in town for upscale dining.
      2) The $29.95 brunch at Border Grill in Mandalay Bay using a certificate is also a deal on an upscale meal.
      3) Check Tix4tonight offers a service where you can get up to 50% off an entree at many fine restaurants for a fee of $3 per person. Here is a link with a listing - click the ones you are interested in for my information.
      4) Check out for discounted gift certificates to a number of restaurants.

        Westie - Don't see the link. I didn't know that Tix4tonight offered discounts on meals!

    2. Just came back from Vegas......what an awesome time we had!

      Had a really unusual breakfast at Hash House a Go Go at the Imperial Place ( next to Harrahs...across from the Mirage) .....portions were huge... prices very reasonable. Will definitely go there again next time I'm in Vegas.

        +1 on Hash House at Imperial Palace. I know some give it a bad rap, but the food is tasty, different and fun.

      2. How far is too far? Will you have a car? What is your budget?

        Namaste over on commercial center has good Indian fare from the Goa region.. I haven't had a bad meal yet. The $11 lunch buffet is also good.

        Many of the casinos have buffets that do a good job. $4.99 breakfasts at Station Casinos. with club card.

        Without some more information it will be hard to answer your guestion.

        Personally I would venture off the Strip, as there are many great local restaurants. Great meals , and better values in my opinion.

          Won't have a car. Just don't want to spend $100 a night on dinner if possible.
          Thanks for the suggestions.

            I went to Namaste a year ago because Lotus of Siam next door was closed. The buffet was pretty tasteless. My understanding is that the original folks sold out and I am in no hurry to go back there.

              Melque is the sole owner now after her partner left. She has a new chef , and he is doing a great job. I have yet to have a bad meal there, and I have been to Namaste several times over the past year for meetings. Everyone I know who has eaten there recommends it to others. Head on back, and tell her Walter sent you.

          2. Charlie Palmer's 'cut of the week' deal $48 pp for 3 course meal..
            Lotus of Siam for some of the best it since its off the strip by the LV Hilton
            Bouchon for breakfast at the Venetian
            Delmonicos at the V
            Hugo's Cellar downtown LV
            Milos at the Cosmo
            Wynn at Country Club
            Oyster Bar at Palace Station
