Did anyone else notice so many empty tables inside like I did earlier this week. All the while so many wait outside to be seated and served?
I think perhaps the kitchen was overwhelmed when that happens, so they let people continue to shop or whatever instead of being seated and waiting too long for their orders to come out?

I was there today and got the Caramel Pecan Turtle Cheesecake. It was very generously portioned. Line up was crazy. Food was great!

I suppose they may have buzzed people but that mall is so big, it can take 15 minutes to get back to the restaurant. They don't know which table is going to pay so it's hard to know who to buzz. They should try and buzz people even if it means they have to wait 30 minutes more but people won't like that so restaurant is in no win situation.

When I was there I don't think I saw an empty table for more than a few minutes. But that was during dinner rush.

Even without a wait, I probably wouldn't go here. I had it in the US, & most of my friends agreed it was good but nothing special. The only thing special was big portions. Its not bad by any means, it's good but even without a wait, there are plenty of other restaurants I would go to before this place

People waiting 3+ hrs is just crazy. I would only try the cheesecakes but $10 for a slice is pretty steep and they don't look huge either.

Wow...so the prices here are cheaper than the states given the exchange rate?

That's awesome

Nope. It's more like a percentage....approx 30% or more.

Some dishes are $17 in US and $23 here. Etc.

3hrs is quite insane. 2hrs is fine so long as you have a pager since getting a pager may be quick depending on day and time you go.

The cheesecake are expensive and I would only go and get a cheesecake that you cannot find anywhere else. None of that plain basic simple stuff you can get anywhere.

When I was there, one of the servers said their cheesecakes sell so fast, they have a special truck in the basement just to hold cheesecakes because people are buying 2 or 3 whole cakes at a time. Not everyone but some people are anyways.

So that's basically the exchange rate..good to see them keep same prices here

But no way I'm lining up over 30mins

Was it near the strip?
Forum Shops @ Caesars. I went to a couple locations when I was in the US last. Food was just ok, cheesecake was good but I don't understand why someone would wait 3+ hours for it here.
