I visited Ping Pang Pong at Gold Coast casino, Vegas. It was fantastic. I would rate it the best in Vegas. Also the Noodle Exchange at Gold Coast was nice. Do you agree?

Big thumbs up from me for Ping Pang Pong. Only problem is the line can be slow and I think line cutting is a problem.

The only better Chinese place, in my opinion, is the Orchids Garden on Sahara and Lindel.

I hate when a group of 6 sends one person to stand in
line for half an hour.

I must confess that I am guilty of that. When my family goes to a restaurant, generally the Suncoast buffet, I'll stand in the line and let the rest of the family sit down while they wait. No need for everyone to stand up for a long time. I view it like standing behind someone at McDonalds who orders for his entire Little League team, my loss, but I can't expect every kid on the team to stand there with him. This happened to me once, by the way.

I meant Sahara Blvd.. The Sahara casino is boarded up and vacant.

Everybody does. It wasn't allowed in high school, why is it OK
in real life? Try letting 6 of your friends cut in front of you in
the HS cafeteria and see what happens.

Oh Bob. Such a grump! It's okay in the buffet line because everyone sits at the same table as a group. HS cafeteria line takes money on individual basis so THAT would slow the line. But it's not like that in a restaurant, is it?

It is not quite the same thing. In the HS cafeteria the bottleneck is people move through the chow line only so fast. So cutting inconveniences everybody behind the point of the cut.

In a restaurant the bottleneck is that there are only so many tables, and you have to wait for one your size to clear to be seated. I think there should be one person per table in line. It benefits nobody to have the entire group standing there. When I get my table and waive the family over, they are not cutting in line, they are sitting at my table, which I fairly stood in line for.

If you haven't tried it, check out China Poblano on Las Vegas Blvd. The Mexican version of Chinese food, rather than the (equally idiosyncratic) US version.

For authentic Chinese food, I like Red 8 at the Wynn. There are some newer authentic Hunnan and Sichuan restaurants that have opened recently that I haven't had a chance to try yet (Yunnan Garden comes to mind). For Cantonese, I'll add another vote for Ping Pang Pong. Jasmine at the Bellagio is supposed to have awesome Hong Kong cuisine, but I haven't tried it yet, myself.

If you want to hunt around, LV Chinatown Plaza has a website: http://www.lvchinatown.com/

How would you rate that Chinese fast food place in a casino in Hendertucky that brings the food to you between 2:00am and 6:00am so that you don't have to leave the slot machine/poker room/whatever.

One of the best Chinese restaurants I have eaten at anywhere is Food Express at Palace Station.

The name makes it sound like a cheap place and it kind of is a hole in the wall, but I can't imagine anyone being disappointed with the food.




Food Express

The reviews on Yelp.com back me up.

I really like Noodle Asia in the Venetian. The Night Market Fried Rice is fantastic.

I do not eat in Chinese restaurants. Sometimes the cook does not get all the fur off the cat and it gets stuck at the back of my throat.

Pretty sure. I always order a cheeseburger anytime I get trapped into going to a Chinese restaurant. Pretty damn good when they have one, I must say !

In Las Vegas, the best Chinese restaurant menu prices can vary. Some popular spots include China Poblano, where entrees range from $15 to $30, and Wing Lei, known for its high-end dining experience with main courses starting at $35. It ultimately depends on your budget and preference for casual or upscale dining!

These places still around
Do they do takeout?
I grew up on homemade Chinese food
Are they reasonably priced?
No interest in high end places
Always interested in good cheap Chinese food
Its just a forum. Nothing here to get obsessed about.

Thai food much more healthful. Weera Thai is good.

If you insist on Chinese - Kung Fu Thai & Chinese Restaurant has both.

Higher end would be Fuhu at Resorts World or Wuzuzu at Encore.
