China Poblano - The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Ratings and Reviews
The food was terrible the portions were tiny and it was expensive ESPECIALLY The xiao long bao! That was the worst XLB I've ever had in my life! The XLB skin was mushy when I bit into it and there was hardly any juice. There were some creative fusions but flavors and textures just didn't come together as I expected like for example the duck tongue and lychee taco. The taco was soggy after a few minutes of sitting and the texture of the taco was off. The service was good though but nothing over the top. Ambience was good too but was not worth the $$$ I paid.
The food was great. But the temperature was absolutely horrible. The thermostat consistently reached 76-77 degrees which was right next to our table. We asked the waitress and the manager both to turn the AC on and they both said "we have no control". Knowing this I would avoid the restaurant unless you have very light clothes or are a cold person. I would avoid at all costs. Or get a carry out.
I came to Vegas for my 40th birthday and this was the place I wanted to come to. I have always admired Jose Andres’s creative food and loved the idea of Chinese and Mexican all in one. Let me tell you this place hits it out of the park! From appetizers or guacamole and ceviche to tapas like albondigas, siu mai and unbelievable napales and carnitas tacos, everything was amazing! I could not recommend this place enough.
Portion size was horrible. Ordered a noodle entree and there was less food in this entree than a bowl of soup that I ordered. Waiter explained that portions were small, but to pay for an entree and literally have 2 or 3 bites? That's unacceptable. The other entrees were small, but not like the noodle entree. Tacos were good, but they better be when you pay 7.00 for one taco. Server was super friendly though and was very attentive.
Some of the worse food I have ever tasted. Nachos were salty. Fried wonton were greasy and inedible . Beef tendon taco was awful. Hardly ate any food. Told the servicer it was awful and got no response. Music was too loud. Wine was horrible. All in all a terrible dining experience which we paid 75 dollars for. There may be a reason why Chinese and Mexican together isn't a thing as it clearly doesn't work. Style over substance.
We were attending a concert over the Mexican Independence holiday and chose China Poblano because they offered Chili's en Nogada. Everybody from the receptionist to the wait staff were very friendly and accommodating. Food was good but it's not Mexican without limes on the table! Was very happy that my tequila flight was served with Sangrita though.
