Best Chinese Restaurant on the Strip?

p
Panski Nov 9, 2011 06:29 PM

We are heading to Las Vegas for a few days and love Chinese food. We won't have a car so am not sure if we will get to Chinatown.

This may be an impossible request, but is there any place on the strip serving authentic Chinese food? We used get really good dim sum (I think at the Venetian) but the place was closed last time we were in town. Also, would like to not have to take a second mortgage on the house to get dinner.

I have looked at menus at the various hotels for places like Beijing Noodle No. 9, but can't tell how good they are. We have had some pretty terrible food at the fanciest hotels.

I will appreciate your thoughts.

    Ping Pang Pong at the Gold Coast is the best for Dim Sum. Don't let the stupid name scare you away. You can catch a shuttle from Bill's to get there, or a short Taxi ride up Flamingo.

      Thanks. The menu sure looks interesting. I never would have looked at the place without your advice--I do love Chowhounds.

        Check out Cathay House @ the Palms.
        The original is on Spring Mountain. They have wonderful dim sum and authentic cuisine

          Wow, their menu sounds very good also. I see they have shredded pork with dry tofu. I would be curious how it compares to our favorite place here in N.C. I am glad we have five days to eat. What is the best way to get to the Palms from the Flamingo where we are staying?

            The Palms is directly across from the Gold Coast. Just west of the strip on Flamingo.

              We are thinking about walking. Need to walk off all the food and cocktails. It looks like their are sidewalk all the way. Are we crazy? I didn't get a chance to check the free shuttles today.

                It's a decent distance for a walk, fortunately the weather is perfect now. But.....getting across the 15 interchange on Flamingo could be risky. Whenever I drive around there I feel like I'm taking my life in my hands and that's in an SUV. Don't know about walking past that part. I think there should be sidewalks the whole way though.

                  Thanks julesrules4food. That is what I was afraid of. The distance didn't look that bad, but I was reading LV is the sixth most dangerous place for pedestrians. Unless the information online is out of date, it looks like The Palms has a shuttle. I will check on that.

                    The GC is across the street from the Palms and PPP is a great restaurant. Can't comment on the food at the Palms, haven't ever eaten at any place there but can recommend PPP at GC. You could take the Palms shuttle and go across the street.

                      The shuttle at the Palms only drops off at the Forum Shops and the Fashion Show Mall. It does not pick up at those locations to drop off at the Palms. There is a shuttle that leaves and drops off at Bill's Gambiling Hall to the Gold Coast and the Orleans.

            Has anybody tried the Cathay House @ the Palms? I posted an inquiry on this board but nobody answered. What I'm afraid of is something like Sea Harbour--one of the best Chinese restaurants in the US but apparently the branch in Caesar's is awful.

        i was only there once (and it was a while back) but i thought the crispy suckling pig appetizer (boneless) and black cod congee at Noodles (in the Bellagio) were very good. Did not try their dimsum or noodles.

          Depending on where you stay on the Strip, a cab ride to Chinatown might be a cheaper alternative than the inflated prices at resort restaurants.

            Thanks everyone for all your advice. We leave Sunday (can't wait). Don't know if I can get hubby off the Strip--I can but try. I love congee so Noodles is a possibility. Also have marked down PPP and Cathay House. I will file a report after we get back.

            If you are refering to Noodles Asia at the Venetian, then I second that. I make an effort to dine here whenever I do not feel like driving to Chinatown
            I won't even return to Zine at the Palazzo cuz food is too ordinary for its price.

              Selfportrait93, What do you like to order at Noodles Asia? So many choices, so little time.

                I am a sucker for wonton soup with or without noodles, depending on my mood.
                I feel Noodles Asia's wontons are a bit mild. so I add their chili sauce for that extra kick and saltiness.

                  Wonton with an added kick of chili--yum. Sound perfect for a November day.
