Asian and Mexican may seem like strange bedfellows, however they pull it off. I very good choice without killing the bank account.

Excellent food and service. The employees were all very friendly and very attentive. The service was quick but unhurried. The 21 vegetable fried rice (we added shrimp) was really good.

This has been one of our favorites in the Las Vegas area.

Just an incredible experience. The entire staff were on point and service was impeccably. The whole concept of merging Mexican/Chinese cuisines is brilliant ! Chef Andres has managed to score big again in Vegas with this concept. Want to say a special thank you to the AGM, Eduardo who single handily attended to us in addition to playing maestro to the orchestral wait staff and made it look easy ! Great food, great staff and a real human being in Chef Andres !
BRAVO !!!!!

The food and service are consistently good, and we had another wonderful experience. The server was attentive and acknowledged my mom being gluten free so she could make sure she ordered properly. We always love the food and continue to recommend it to friends. We will definitely be back!

Recommended by bartender my husband was skeptical but supper except to try this concept of the two mixtures if food. Going was supper excited then fire alarms started going off due to another place so our dinner turned into two hour dinner but I would like to say management team and our waiter did a great job keeping us updated and also gave us the option to leave if we needed to or change our order since stove couldn’t be in use. We did the chefs menus so got to try little bit of everything DO THIS!!! Amazing a lot of food we did one pairing and ordered a taco and small bite PERFECT!! The mango sticky rice is a must as well as the fried rice with basil! Husband is still skeptical but we enjoyed ourselves minus the fire alarms!!

Sat at the bar. Food and margaritas were delicious, specifically the fried rice, fish taco & the har gow. The bartender D’Andre provided excellent service. Will visit every time I come to Vegas!

Have eaten here three years in a row, hope to come back every year. Unlike many places, we feel it’s actually gotten better over the years. Salt air margarita is a must, lamb potstickers are scrumptious, every taco we’ve had is 👍👍👍.

Chips, salsa, and guacamole were delicious. The Birria taco was hands down the best we had. The pollo loco, carnitas, and frijoles were just fair.

The service was terrible. Waited 25 minutes for the chips and salsa. Tableside guacamole was another 15 minutes. We were WAITING for food for what felt forever.

Not impressed! Will not go back or recommend

Food was delicious and atmosphere was very fun. Portions are small but the price is not crazy for each dish which allowed us to get a lot of different dishes and split between the group. The salted foam margarita was a favorite of the group. We also really loved the traditional dim sum dumplings and the mojo shrimp.

China Poblano was the eighth restaurant my husband and I dined at during a weeklong stay in Vegas and it was our favorite. The creativity, innovation, and perfect blend of aromas and taste were amazing. The staff was attentive and made some great suggestions. We shared several dishes including the golden pigs, ants climbing a tree, don’t be jealous soup, fried corn dumpling (name I forgot), & mango rice dessert. We will definitely return.

I would recommend yes with some disclaimers. It's loud so if you want to chat with your fellow guests, it's difficult. Ordering was even a challenge a couple of times when particularly loud music was playing. We had a party of six. The waiter explained that there are two kitchens - one for the Chinese/Asian and one for the Mexican - and items would come out at different times. He did not add that even if different people in the party ordered the same item, like hot virtually everything is small plates...we found some things absolutely delicious (Golden Pig dim sum, hot & sour soup, fried wontons, chicken verde tamal) and some meh (special menu beef mole tamal, birria tacos)...the savory items on the whole were far better than the desserts. Mango sticky rice is so different than norm - a huge mound of whipped cream, with some small cubes of hard mango that had hardly any flavor with little bit of crispy fried rice puffs...the corn cake with cream a delicate caramel popcorn was best, the terra cotta choocolate soldier looks impressive but chocolate shell very hard, even kind of 'waxy', interior cream lacked flavor...why? I had a margarita with pomegranate that was outstanding. guac made tableside good but not great, chips and salsa delicious (smoky salsa really great)...I will crave the soup & chicken tamal & margarita but not other stuff so much

We we're excited to try a restaurant of Jose Andres. The concept and ambience perhaps were a little more trendy than we were expecting. The eclectic design of the restaurant was interesting to look at, but a little overstimulating and loud. The service was very good. While I recognize the concept is small plates, the price related to portion size didn't really seem a good value. Our entrees did not come out at the same time, but our server did provide us with a complimentary Carnitas Taco to make up for that which I have to say was delicious. Mixed review and experience.

It is not often we are faced with a menu where every single item sounds incredible. The fusion of Asian and Mexican is creative, bold, and a treat from the very first appetizer. Start with the Dim Sum, move onto a taco, then dive into a noodle dish. Our only regret is that we got full and could not order more!
