Wazuzu features modern Asian dishes using Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Vietnamese, Indian and Korean influences.
The crunch roll, a delightful bit of heaven, is a modern take on the previously Americanized crunch roll, laden with grease and fried to a crisp. In this much-improved version, panko crusted shrimp, cucumber and avocado serve as the simple, delicious filling for the roll. The coating is actually Japanese rice crackers.
The ahi tuna, fresh salmon and yellowtail sashimi are all-melt-in-your-mouth, fresh.
Dining under the head of the 28-foot-long dragon with 90,000 Swarovski crystals is a bit intimidating, but the over-the-top opulence reminds you that you are dining in a Steve Wynn property. Wazuzu, a Chinese word meaning "nine dragons," and the dragon's crystals sparkle in Wazuzu's 2,400 flickering lights beaming from an accent wall.
A spicy roti panang is served with a semi-greasy, but crispy flat bread. The chicken panang is seasoned beautifully with bold flavors from the curry and coconut milk.
A crispy fish is perfectly cooked. The tender filet is served skin side up and topped with a mango salad.
Wazuzu's pineapple fried rice has a little bit of everything. The fried rice has jumbo shrimp, grapes, pineapple and sausage, served in a pineapple boat and large enough to share.
Wazuzu is open for lunch and dinner with a casual elegant atmosphere and exciting modern menu.
