Best kosher options in Las Vegas

We're going to Las Vegas in 2 weeks. I have the list of kosher places from the Chabad website. Does anyone have any experience with kosher places there - which are good, which are convenient, which are best for Shabbat meals?

  1. By far the best kosher place in Vegas is Sababa. It's 15 minutes from the strip, but well worth it. Their best dish is the Beef shish kabob, which is extremely tender and delicious.
    I am in Vegas 1-2 months a year and I have tried all the kosher restaurants, let me know if you have any more questions.

      Hi, My husband will be in Vegas for Shabbat, at the venetian ,
      1. We are looking for ashull (walking distance)
      2. Where can he find/order kosher meals on shabbat ?
      thank you

      1. re: michali

        Shaarei Tefilla, Rabbi Wasser's Shul is the closest, but I'm not sure it's walking distance. If your husband is there for a trade show, there may be Minyan/meals that the other vendors arrange. Tell him to ask the vendors. If not, you should move to the La Quinta motel next door to the Aish Minyan for Shabbos. Take-out for Shabbos is easy. You just have to choose which one you want. Friends of ours ordered from Haifa and were happy. You can drive over to Summerlin to get take out from the supermarket there or order a Shabbos package and pick it up. Check the threads I posted here to get info.

          Another Shabbos tip. If you are in the Venetian for Shabbos in the end, then go over to the Coffee Bean and prepay for your coffee and pastry. Then you can pick it up Shabbos morning. I did that with the Palazzo, but you can ask the one in the Venetian if they are willing to do it. I also pre-paid for the sandwiches for Shalosh Seudos. The morning coffee was more important, though.

            Thank you so much.
            your tips were very helpful.
            I'll check all the options.. thanks again, michal.

      2. There are three kosher Coffee Bean & Tea Leafs on the strip: in the Palazzo, the Venetian, and Planet Hollywood Hotel. All three are under LA Kosher. I believe there may be others off the strip, but I was only at those three and can vouch for their their supervision as of December 2011. In addition to pastries, they have a small amount of fresh prepackaged other food too like wraps, salad, etc. Each of the three vary in terms of how much food they have.

        Also, downtown, on Fremont Street, there is a Krispy Kreme under KOA Kosher.

        1. Just got back from Vegas. Panini Cafe was great, and one of the few dairy options. But it's about 20 minutes from the strip so not very convenient if that's where you're staying. Jerusalem Grill is about 5 minutes off the strip and the food is very tasty, especially liked the baby chicken and tabouleh salad. Agree with jrfigo about Sababa -- delicious, but a bit out of the way.

            Glad to see Panini is still great. I just spoke to a foodie who believes that Panini is the best kosher dairy she has had in the U.S. and I agree.

            1. re: cappucino

              I also went in with the impression it was going to be amazing beyond all belief and honestly was disappointed.... I was there for 4 days in June with my family and since we are all vegetarian and were staying away from the strip (plus, Adars Pizza was only open til 4pm every day??!) about a 5 min drive from Panini we went to Panini about once a day.
              The food was ok. I really do not think it deserves the title of best kosher dairy in the US- not bad, not amazing, def not somewhere I would have kept returning to if there had been other options. I found Beyond Shemtovs in Miami to be much better, as an example.

              1. re: marissaj

                Perhaps ownership has changed. I haven't been there in a while.

                1. re: cappucino

                  FYI: there is a coupon deal for panini cafe- if you find a coupon code you can get $10 for $2....

          2. Report on a recent business trip-Jerusalem Grill did a very nice job of packaging a take-out meal for me- appetizer, chicken main dish, dessert, drink. They threw in little containers of hot sauce/tehina without my asking, and had the whole thing ready quickly. Solid job- I'll go back if I am here again.
            I relied on Coffee Bean for lunch, had a veggie wrap which was good, not great- the main thing was that it was available when and where I needed it. I went to the one at the Venetian (actually there were 2, one had some salads and the other sandwiches and wraps).
