Also in ARIA Resort & Casino, Din Tai Fung is a world-renowned international chain originally from Taiwan that has recently opened its first branch in Las Vegas.
Din Tai Fung is known for its dumplings and noodle dishes, and if you only eat one thing, make it the Shanghai-style xiao long bao, delicious steamed dumplings filled with korubata pork and a savory broth that oozes out into your mouth with each bite.
But of course, you won’t want to stop there, and the menu also includes a range of other types of dumplings along with delights such as korubata pork buns, pork chop fried rice, black pepper beef tenderloin, braised beef noodle soup and much, much more.
This in-demand restaurant now offers mobile takeout. To eat in, walk-ins are possible – but reservations are highly recommended if you don’t want to risk missing out.
3. Ping Pang Pong
- Where: 4000 W Flamingo Rd
- Opening hours: Daily 10am-3am
Award-winning Chinese restaurant Ping Pang Pong is a Vegas favorite that serves a range of classics from all parts of China – you’ll find plenty of authentic Chinese recipes as well as other dishes that have been adapted for Western palates.
Look out for the West Lake Beef Soup, named after the famous lake in Hangzhou, as well as other classics like Mapo Doufu, a spicy tofu dish, and Mongolian Beef. The lamb stew hot pot is also a recommended choice – as is the double braised sea bass hot pot.
The restaurant also has a display of live seafood, with Maine lobster, Dungeness crab and live eels, so there’s no doubting the freshness of everything that’s served.
4. Beijing Noodle No 9
- Where: 3570 Las Vegas Blvd S Caesars Palace Hotel & Casino
- Opening hours: Daily 11am-11pm
Intended to cater at least in part to the large numbers of Chinese visitors who come to stay in Caesars Palace to gamble in the casino, Beijing Noodle No. 9 is a great place to sample some high-quality and particularly authentic Chinese fare.
As the name suggests, noodles feature heavily on the menu, and among others, one to sample is the house take on the classic Spicy Beef Noodle Soup. The Dan Dan Noodles, originally from Sichuan province, are also not to be missed.
However, there’s more than just noodles on offer. You can allow yourself to be enticed by handmade dumplings with various fillings, and there is also a range of other dishes such as Kung Pao Chicken or Roast duck to tempt you.
So in short, if you’re a fan of Chinese food – and you like it to be as authentic as it comes – this is a place that should appeal.

- Opening hours: Sun-Thu 11:30am-10:00pm | Fri-Sat 11:30am-12:00am
Wynn Hotel boasts three exceptional Chinese restaurants, all of which made it onto our list – and Red 8 is the second. This one is a little less formal than Wing Lei, but you can still expect to be served high-quality Chinese food in tastefully decorated surroundings.
On the menu, you’ll find an extensive range of dim sum delights as well as dishes like Kung Pao Prawns, Sweet & Sour Pork or Chicken – and the innocuously-named Sichuan Boiled Beef, strips of beef served in a fiery oily broth laced with chili and numbing Sichuan peppercorns.
The menu also has a separate Macau Noodle section, and the restaurant offers a range of specialty Chinese teas including Longjing, Oolong, Pu’er and Jasmine to accompany your meal in keeping with true Chinese tradition.
6. Mott 32

- Opening hours: Daily 5pm-10pm
A renowned restaurant that first opened in Hong Kong and now has a branch in the Palazzo in Vegas, Mott 32 is a Cantonese restaurant that also draws influences from Sichuan and Beijing cuisine to provide a high-end Chinese dining experience to savor.
The signature Apple Wood Roasted 42 Days Peking Duck “Signature Mott 32 Cut” is a treat you won’t want to miss – and you should order it in advance because it sells out fast – but the menu also includes plenty of other creative dishes to temp you.
For example, you can sample such unusual delights as the Sweet & Sour Pork with Dragon Fruit and Aged Black Vinegar or the Alaskan Crabmeat Fried Rice with Flying Fish Roe.
Mott 32 also offers a range of signature plant-based dishes, and the restaurant is famous for its stylish décor as well as for the quality of the food, all of which should place the restaurant high on you list of priorities while in town.
7. Joyful House

Inspired by the cuisine of Hong Kong, Joyful House is an award-winning restaurant that should be of interest to all Chinese food lovers visiting Vegas.
The quality of the food is excellent, especially for the reasonable prices you’ll pay, and the staff are super-friendly too – chef Kai Wa Yau sums up the experience of eating in his restaurant in three words: “tasty, clean, friendly”.
Deciding what to order can be a challenge thanks to the wide-ranging menu that includes live seafood, scallops, oysters and clams as well as a list of claypot options and more. However, whatever you opt for, you’re sure to leave with a full belly – and a smile on your face.

There’s also a wide selection of fresh seafood that is kept alive in tanks until required, and particular specialties include Giant Clam and Bridge Over Giant Clam with Beansprout.
This might not be the cheapest Chinese restaurant in town, but you know that what you’re paying for is of the highest quality, so if you want to splash out on something special, Blossom is an option to consider.
9. Shang Artisan Noodle
- Where: 4983 W Flamingo Rd Suite B
- Opening hours: Daily 11am-10pm
Focusing on the noodle-making traditions of Shanxi province that date back over two millennia, this is the place to come if you want to sample some of the best noodles Las Vegas has to offer.
This restaurant attempts to give the humble noodle a modern interpretation by combining age-old noodle-making techniques with contemporary ideas about ingredients and presentation – and the results are spectacular.
Shang Beef Noodle or Beef Shank Noodles are among the most traditional of the Shanxi recipes, but there are also other options such as Chicken Sesame Cold Noodles and the simple but irresistible Tomato & Egg Noodles.
The menu isn’t as extensive as in some other restaurants, although a selection of side dishes is available. Rather, they focus on making just a few dishes but cooking them to perfection. And if you want to know what that tastes like, Shang Artisan noodle won’t disappoint.
10. P.F. Chang’s
- Where: 3667 Las Vegas Blvd S Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino
- Opening hours: Sun-Thu 11am-12am | Fri & Sat 11am-1am
For late-night Chinese dining, P.F. Chang’s is a reliable option since it’s open till midnight – and 1am on Fridays and Saturdays.
Start your meal with a portion of Chang’s Lettuce Wraps, one of the restaurant’s signature creations, and then choose from a selection of dim sum as well as delectable dishes such as Chang’s Spicy Chicken, the intriguingly named Buddha’s Feast and more.
This might not be the most authentically Chinese restaurant in Vegas, but if you’re more interested in delicious flavors than sticking rigidly to Chinese cooking traditions, P.F. Chang’s is a restaurant that won’t let you down.
11. Hong Kong Café
- Where: 3325 Las Vegas Blvd S
- Opening hours: Sun-Thu 11am-10pm | Fri & Sat 11am-12am
Located on the Palazzo Casino floor near the Palazzo Waterfall Atrium, Hong Kong Café specializes in tasty treats from Hong Kong and the rest of China.
It’s a laidback place you can duck into for a quick snack of something like steamed Shanghai dumplings or a bowl of noodles and washed down with a Hong Kong-style milk tea – or you can choose something a bit more substantial when you’re in need of a proper meal.
As you’d expect from a place called Hong Kong Café, there’s a respectable dim sum selection. Typical Hong Kong dishes include Honey-Glazed Barbecue Pork, and they also have a range of Sichuan-inspired dishes for those who prefer a bit of spice.
12. Orchids Garden
- Where: 5485 W Sahara Ave
- Opening hours: Daily 10:30am-9pm
A large and unpretentious Chinese restaurant to the west of downtown Las Vegas, Orchids Garden has a particularly impressive range of dim sum – although they have plenty of other dishes to choose from too.
It might be slightly removed from the main Vegas action, but the restaurant has its own car park, and the prices are extremely reasonable too, so making the short trip out to Orchids Garden is well worth the effort.
13. Mr Chow
- Where: 3570 Las Vegas Blvd S Caesars Palace
- Opening hours: Thu-Mon 5pm-10pm | Tue & Wed CLOSED
If you’re in Caesars Palace but don’t feel like going to Beijing Noodle No. 9, your other option is Mr Chow, a venerable Las Vegas institution that has been around since 1968.
The interior features a unique contemporary style that includes elements such as a kinetic moon sculpture that’s designed to entertain you during your meal as it comes to life and morphs into different shapes throughout the evening.
You can order a succulent Beijing Roast Duck to share as part of a three-course meal, and there are plenty of other Chinese classics and mouth-watering modern creations to choose from.
You can even try the shark’s fin soup guilt-free – since it’s an imitation version and doesn’t contain any real sharks’ fins – or you can indulge yourself with fresh live lobster or green prawns Chinese-style to make it a meal to remember.
14. Veggie House
- Where: 5115 Spring Mountain Rd Ste 203
- Opening hours: Daily 11:28am-9:33pm
For those who don’t eat meat but want the widest selection of Chinese dishes to choose from, there’s only one place to head – and that’s Veggie House since the entire menu is 100% vegan-friendly.
You can happily order items like Orange Chicken, General Tzo Chicken or Kung Pao Beef because these are imitation dishes that contain no meat.
There’s also a range of vegan sushi on offer, so those who are tired of having to navigate menus full of meat and fish will be able to order anything that takes their fancy.
Look out for house specialties like Spicy Veggie Mongolian Beef or Curry Duck and see how delicious vegan food can be when it’s done right.
- Where: Bellagio Hotel
- Opening hours: Wed-Sun 5pm-10pm | Mon & Tue CLOSED
The menu includes well-known favorites from Cantonese and Sichuan cuisines as well as delightful dishes from the cuisine of Hunan, far less common in the West – Hunan cuisine is known for its generous use of chili, so this is one for those who like it hot.
With lavish décor and a stunning view out over the lake, Jasmine is a Chinese restaurant for the most discerning of diners who want to sample the very best that Chinese cuisine has to offer.
16. Chengdu Taste
- Where: 3950 Schiff Dr
- Opening hours: Daily 11am-2:30pm, 5pm-9:30pm
For those used to eating Westernized Chinese food loosely based on Cantonese cooking, authentic Sichuanese food comes as a surprise.
Full of pungent sour and spicy flavors and employing a variety of ingredients, Sichuanese cuisine is among the most popular in China – and in Las Vegas, Chengdu Taste is among the best places to experience it.
Order dishes like Boiled Fish with Green Pepper Sauce, Boiled Beef in Hot Sauce or Flavored Chicken in Chili Sauce – and if you’ve never tasted anything like it before, you’re in for a real treat.

- Opening hours: Thu 11:30am-10:00pm | Fri & Sat 11:30am-11:30pm | Sun 11:30am-10:00pm | Temporarily closed Mon, Tue and Wed
Wazuzu is the third of the restaurants at Wynn we’ve included here, and while it isn’t strictly Chinese, we thought it still merited its place on our list.
This is a fusion restaurant that incorporates elements of Chinese, Japanese and Thai food, taking the best from all three traditions and giving you a wide selection of dishes to choose from.
The most typically Chinese options include the dim sum selection and dishes like the Cantonese Assorted Barbecue Plate, but you’ll also find items like Thai Panag Curry and Japanese ramen, so nobody in your party is likely to have trouble finding something to order.
18. Dagu Rice Noodle
- Where: 4284 Spring Mountain Road #106
- Opening hours: Daily 11am-11pm
Dagu Rice Noodle is a hugely popular noodle franchise found all over China, and the Las Vegas restaurant is the first branch to open in North America.

The restaurant is located about two miles away from The Strip right in front of Chinatown, and for an authentic taste of real Chinese noodles, this is the place to head.
