Lived in Vegas for a few years, though I'm currently in the process of moving to Montreal Stuck in Plattsburgh, NY temporarily while waiting for the work visa, and very much missing the food in Las Vegas. Not that it's known for its vegetarian cuisine, but it does have a few decent places.
My favorites, all of which are shown on the happycow link above, are:
Go Raw Cafe - It's primarily raw vegan, with their only cooked item being brown rice which is available at the salad bard. I am not raw, or vegan, but this place is just freaking good and I went there a LOT. Good variety of entrees, awesome deserts, huge juice section, and a small but excellent salad bar.
Veggie Delight - This is right in Chinatown, and is typical Taiwanese style fake meat based vegetarian dishes, and also has soy based boba tea. They also do phở, Vietnamese style noodle soup, though it's almost creepy how much detail they go into with the fake meats. They've got, like, veggie tripe in it lol.
Samosa Factory - Not quite authentic Indian cuisine, but very good. Not completely vegetarian, but the menu has a very large veggie section, and both the vegetarian and vegan items are very clearly labeled. One of the few non-vegetarian restaurants that actually has a separate vegan section in the menu, not just a separate vegetarian section.
And if you're in a hurry, which I often was working at Mandalay Bay, the Whole Foods just south of the main strip, in the Town Square shopping area, has a decent vegan section in their hot food bar. They also make a "Las Vegan Burrito" which is decent.
Thanks for the lists I love Las Vegas and I would love to go there again some day Thanks for the ideas. I usually go to the casinos buffets and just pick salad stuff and fruits and veggies but the other suggestions are nicer.
The buffet at the M Resort, although quite a bit south of the main strip, actually has a small vegetarian section, composed mostly of Mediterranean/Greek style foods, in addition to the standard buffet items. Useful to know if you're ever with a bunch of non-vegetarians and need a compromise that will satisfy everyone
That's good to know about the M because Ive been there and been disappointed by the other restaurants. I'm very accustomed to finding veg food on any menu and asking fir substitutions but I prefer not to if I don't have to.
To the OP: just so you know, the only 100% vegetarian or vegan restaurants in town are Pura Vida and Go Raw Cafe. All the others serve animal meat and other animal products.
