Help! Vegetarian Options?

Heading to Vegas over Labor Day weekend for a predictable (of sorts) bachelorette. The lady of honor is a vegetarian, and I'd love to pull away from the strip - or wherever it takes - for a great vegetarian meal. It doesn't have to be fancy, but I certainly want it to be tasty. Ethnic food (Indian or Southeast Asian in particular) is well loved. Suggestions?

Advance thanks!

  1. Will you have access to a car? Also, does the vegetarian eat dairy, eggs and/or seafood?

      We'll be in cabs or some other form of transportation (it's a bachelorette, fingers crossed for a limo). And yes, the vegetarian eats dairy and eggs, but no seafood.

        Las Vegas has among the highest taxi cab rates in the US. For the price of a round trip can fare, or lower, to an off the Strip restaurant you can rent a car.

          Thanks for the tip. Honestly, we're likely in a limo for the night. Close to the strip is probably appreciated - looks like we'll have an 8 pm show to hit - but off is fine (would like to weigh all options!)

    2. Komol (Thai), in Commercial Center, is a good starting point for any list - the largest vegetarian menu in Las Vegas, and the quality will not disappoint. Ambience is nothing special, but if it is dinner before a show, than perhaps that is of lesser importance. Be forewarned that their heat scale runs more fiery than most Asian restaurants, so order accordingly.

      1. For something fun with more of a party atmosphere, try Origin India across the street from the Hard Rock on Paradise. Not the best Indian food around (that would be in my house:-), but lots of good tasty options...especially the vegetarian (they have a lot of "fusion" dishes, and I have always liked their veggie options). Plus, the real reason to go are the cocktails. I've said it here before, I think they have some great and original cocktails. I especially like the Mumbai fizz (like Bhel puri in a glass) and the mangotini. If you go on a weekday from 5 to 7 they have happy hour; apps and drinks are half off. You could make a meal of that!

          Perhaps it is because I couldn't help but compare it to the Indian food at your house:-) but I wasn't too entranced with Origin India (though we weren't sticking to vegetarian options either). However, Bhel Puri in a glass is something I have to try. Happy hour on next trip to Vegas!

            oh, the food isn't perfect, but they do have some good veggie apps, and of course the cocktails, and both DH and I have enjoyed the "happy hours" we've spent there.....I thought it might be a fun yet very different option for a bachelorette. Also live music sometimes....

        2. Lotus of Siam off the strip close to the LV Hilton..
          This is one of the best Thai restaurants in the world...lunch or dinner...order off the menu.
          It's in a divey shopping center but don't let this fool you.
          I'm so craving their Pad Thai with Tofu super spicy with extra sauce..

          1. Namaste is next door to Lotus of Siam and features Indian cuisine from the Goa region. They have several vegetarian options. She has a new chef, and he is doing a good job there, I haven't been disappointed yet. Tell Melque (the owner) that Walter sent you.

            The Wynn has expanded its vegetarian meals.

            Another option is the Bar+Bistro located in the Arts Factory. Chef Beni has been doing great things over there, and I believe he has a vegetarian menu now.
