Las Vegas' 10 Best Chinese Restaurants: Serving Traditional Favorites and New Trends



With an international clientele on the Las Vegas Strip, it’s no wonder that the city has a plentiful number of Chinese restaurants. Although the restaurants on the Strip tend toward a more refined atmosphere and expensive dishes, there’s a good balance of casual eateries to give diners a wide range of choices.

Perhaps the most well-known Chinese restaurant on the Strip is Hakkasan at the MGM Grand. While the name might bring the nightclub to mind, the restaurant wows diners with its fine Cantonese food. This is one Chinese restaurant where you’ll want to be sure to make reservations.

Although Las Vegas has plenty of neighborhood take-out style Chinese, the best restaurants in town offer a more upscale atmosphere, with the selections reflecting a keen knowledge of the cuisine. Sure, you’ll find the standard sides of rice and noodles, but those dishes--along with the rest of the menu--will be memorable at these fine restaurants.

If the thought of Chinese food brings to mind a more casual style of food for you, don’t despair. Ping Pang Pong at the Gold Coast blends some of the newer and more inventive dishes with standards that Americans will recognize (for those who’d like to see some familiar names on the menu).

For those diners still pondering where to find the best dim sum, fresh seafood or noodles, read on for our list of Las Vegas’ best Chinese restaurants.
