Fermé, même le Uber n’a pas voulu nous y laisser seuls, parking pas rassurant du tout!
The food was delicious and the prices were reasonable. The food presentation was nice. My Family and Friends enjoyed it.
Will be coming back! The food, atmosphere and service was amazing!
We selected this restaurant because we couldn't get into Lotus of Siam. The reviews looked great and we had vegetarians in our party. We went for my husbands birthday. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious!!! We ordered the calamari and it was light, crispy and flavorful. I ordered the drunken noodles with shrimp. Flavor profiles were complicated and amazing. We ordered the pineapple fried rice and it was probably the best fried rice I've ever tasted. Even the lemonade was delicious - a perfect combination of sweet and sour.
The last surprise was a special dessert they brought for my husband. I asked if they did anything when I booked the reservation. I couldn't have asked for anything better. Thanks so much and we will definitely be back! My stomach is happy.
The food was actually better than I expected..very small quiet place outside the strip if don’t want to be in the noisy casinos..not very big wine selection
Great food and service. I make a point to visit every time I am in Vegas This time we went twice.
The arawan pad thai is amazing with generous pprtions. The only downside to it was that the prawn didn't taste very fresh. Also, this place was lacking AC, and it felt stuffy.
Food is amazing, prices are great and service is fantastic
A little hard to find, but worth it. The food is delicious, and they are happy to accommodate you on your requested spice level. Pad Thai, Chicken Satay, and all curries are wonderful.
We often judge a Thai restaurant based on the Tom Kha Gai. Unfortunately it was bland. Having eaten at MANY Thai restaurants around the country, including New York and San Francisco, the soup was missing the sweetest and zest it needed. While hearty with chicken, there was no lemongrass in the soup and it lacked bay leaf, giving it a one note flavor profile. The Panang curry was also one note.
Pleasantly, they make their fresh wraps to order, so we were able to change the shrimp to tofu.
The wait staff was very nice.
Restaurant is in a post apocalyptic dystopian strip mall setting but don’t let this dissuade you from coming here. Once you enter, the ambience is quite warm, inviting and immediately welcoming.
The ice cold beer served in a frosty mug was a welcome respite from the hot desert heat. Food overall was high quality. Ingredients were fresh and expertly prepared and presented. The summer roll was crisp and you could taste the freshness of the mint and leaves inside. It was served with a delightful sweet and citrusy dipping sauce with crushed peanuts. The Duck Drunken Noodles was amazing and blew us away with the myriad of tangy and zesty flavors. We’d come back here for this dish alone! The Ribeye with Crispy Basil was tasty, but underwhelming due to the delicateness of the sauce in contrast to the Drunken Noodles which were served first. The ribeye steak was thin and had some tough fatty edges. Nevertheless, we were hungry and finished everything! Dessert for us was the Mango Paradise and was probably the best mango rice dessert we’ve ever had (and we’ve been to Bangkok!).
Service was excellent and the wait staff were attentive, warm and friendly.
Highly recommended and we will come back again!
Excellent high-end Thai food restaurant located in the same "less than up-scale" strip mall area as the older "Lotus of Siam". Everything that we tried was outstanding and very well executed. I also appreciated the fact that we could enjoy normal dinner conversation without having to scream at the tops of our lungs in order to be heard. We'll absolutely be back.
This is a true gem. One of the best Thai meals I've ever had. And Gail and the staff are amazing.
This is a bit off the well beaten path (our Lyft driver had never been to the strip mall it is in). It is worth the visit. All the food was delightful. We especially liked the pork belly dish (sorry don't recall exactly what it was) we had.
Great thai food in Las Vegas. Traditional thai cuisine was tasty and well presented. But what really stands out is dessert. Wow. All made to order and interesting flavors. Can't say enough good things!
We eat here every time we are in Las Vegas. Simply amazing.
Thai is one of our favorite types of cuisine. We love to try new restaurants when traveling. This is, hands down, the BEST Thai food that we have had anywhere! They use fresh ingredients and herbs, and the food is packed with flavor! The yum yum soup is delicious! So is the short rib curry and red curry. My only regret is that we didn’t have room for dessert!
Food is absolutely delicious. Seating is comfortable, with space between the table to provide each table with some privacy. Hardest part is finding the restaurant...while the address is on a main street (E. Sahara), the actual entrance to the restaurant is in the back.
A regular stop on our Trips to Vegas. Consistently delicious and friendly.
Amazing little Vegas gem in an unassuming strip mall. They do very well here with atmosphere (guitar player at the door and lovely decor), service and a menu that leaves you speechless. My husband has been to Thailand and is always searching for the next best dish. He had a short rib curry that blew his mind. The mint eggplant is delish and my parents enjoyed their chow mein. Happy to know my home town has great food off the strip that won’t cost you an arm and leg!
Found this off-strip gem after reading reviews. Don't let the sleazy, half empty, strip mall setting deter you from going to this fantastic restaurant. This was some of the best Thai food I've experienced. We had the Yellow Curry Short Ribs and the meat practically fell off the bone looking at it. We also had Pineapple Fried Rice which was exquisite and the Phad See Iew which was good but different from my typical fare. The Phad See Iew noodles were not as thick or gummy as I'm used to. The noodles were more in line with an Italian style flat broad noodle with very little sauce. It still tasted fantastic, but was different than what I am used to.
Delicious vegetatian and vegan options available. We loved the food!
We came here for team dinner (7 co-workers) and had a great time. The wait staff was very accommodating and we did 7 or 8 dishes family style which worked out really well. Reservations were easy to get. Everything was very good, by my favorites were the whole deep-fried fish and the duck panang curry special. The restaurant is in a strip mall about 5-10 minutes from LV Blvd by Uber.
Terrific food. Dollar for dollar among the best means I have had. Don’t pass on the dessert
We chose this restaurant because it was reported to be a diamond in the rough. Was definitely in a rough neighborhood but not much of a gem. We ordered one of their top wines and it tasted like it had been stored for six months on the top shelf of a hot kitchen. The calamari was batter with tiny bits of squid. The rest of the food was ok but I’d recommend searching elsewhere for a good meal.
Great service, great food, very helpful and friendly. (You have to get past the terrible facade out front!) But GO inside, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. We ordered spring rolls, Duck drunken noodles, Thai fried chicken, and Panang Curry. All were amazing! The portions are large and can be shared.
A must visit if you are in Las Vegas. Don’t be put off by the outside and location. The food is delicious. Make sure to make room for the dessert. The mango dessert especially
Excellent food and service! Very worthy of their high ratings!!!
Wonderful meal with excellent service
The food was great! Everything was great! 🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉🎉
Off the strip in a lower rent part of town. Looks iffy from the outside but some of the best food in Vegas. Plenty to pick from even if you’re not into Thai food.
Loved this place. Excellent food, great service. I will come again. Worthy of a trip off the strip
This place will take you by storm! Amazing food! Arawan Pad Thai and the Crispy Duck are winners
Excellent food v good value. A little off the beaten track but worth it
Excellent flavors and fresh ingredients, vegan options, friendly service!
Nice place and great drunken noodles. Only blemish on rasonable prices was $6 tea.
This place was so unexpected. Do not be concerned with the plaza. I invited out of town friends. I had never been but saw good reviews and reserved. We loved it. The staff was amazingly friendly and attentive. The food was styled beautifully. It was so tasty. We would come again.
Delicious food and excellent service! Quiet and quaint atmosphere.
Excellent restaurant. Very good pad Thai and spring rolls. Service was very good.
Great food, served beautifully, in a comfortable setting (nothing fancy) - if you want a break from the strip prices and noise, that's a good one!
