Chinese - Upscale and good

I remember Ruth Reichl saying that Las Vegas has the best Chinese Restaurants in the US. Does any one have any recommendations. Something good with nice atmosphere. Cost is no issue.

  1. There are many good ones, but Wing Lei is probably the only "upscale" one.

    1. Assuming the Las Vegas Hakkasan is comparable to those in Beverly Hills and New York, I'd say that's your best bet. You have to be careful with the upscale Chinese in Vegas. Some are not very good. Note that Reichl's comments were made several years ago, and referred specifically to custom meals for Asian high rollers, and not to restaurants open to the public.

        She must have never been to or heard of SGV.

          Well she left L.A. just about the time that the San Gabriel Valley became the pre-eminent Chinese dining locale in the US.
