Best Asian Restaurants in Las Vegas

From Chinese to Japanese and Thai to Korean, Asian restaurants in Las Vegas truly offer something for everyone. Whether you’re seeking out tried-and-true favorite dishes (hello, chow mein and California rolls), or looking to indulge in something more exotic (masa toro tartare caviar, anyone?), Sin City’s world-renowned chefs never disappoint. Read on for our favorite Las Vegas Asian restaurants.

 

Kumi at Mandalay Bay

After a meal at award-winning chef Akira Back’s Kumi, you’ll discover that Japanese cuisine and Korean American fare may just be the perfect combination. Start your meal off with something from the cool or warm shared plates menu, which tempts with things like tuna tataki and pork belly bao buns. The entrée menu is packed with everything from Kobe short ribs to jidori chicken with kimchee green beans. Looking for something more casual? Grab a seat at the sushi bar or dig into the bento boxes on the daily lunch menu.

  

Koi at Planet Hollywood

See and be seen at the celebrity-favorite Koi. The menu features Japanese cuisine with a bit of California flair—take the Wagyu surf and turf roll, for example, which is a shrimp tempura and avocado sushi roll topped with American Wagyu beef. Who would say no to that? Entrée favorites include miso bronzed black cod and wasabi braised short ribs. When dinner is done, don’t leave just yet—the lounge next door is the perfect place for a nightcap (or two).

  

Yellowtail at Bellagio

There’s no such thing as too much sushi, right? Head to the Bellagio for traditional and contemporary Japanese fare, including seasonal fresh fish flown in daily from markets all over the world. Pair your favorite sushi with a seemingly endless sake menu and selfie-worthy panoramic views of the iconic Fountains of Bellagio.

    

 

MOzen Bistro at Mandarin Oriental 

At MOzen, Asian food is on the menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so you can start the day with green tea waffles, try Thai for lunch, and sample a little bit of everything in the evening with one of their popular bento boxes, which include everything from Tandoor roasted chicken in tomato curry to Kobe beef carpaccio.

  

Nobu at Caesars Palace

While Chef Nobu Matsuhisa has restaurants all over the world, the Las Vegas location is the largest in the world, and they’ve really pulled out all the stops. From Kumamoto oysters to lobster ceviche to squid ‘pasta’ with garlic, there’s something for every taste. Can’t decide? Indulge in the multi-course Omakase menu and sample signature items or the chef’s daily creations.

  

Tao at Venetian

Part nightclub, part beach club, and part restaurant, Tao isn’t just a place to eat—it’s an experience. The cuisine is inspired by flavors of China, Japan, and Thailand, and includes a full sushi bar and perfectly paired cocktails. Dig in, but don’t forget to look up from your plate every once in a while—this two-story restaurant is a visual treat as well, with a giant Buddha statue, candle wall, and rich, colorful Asian décor.

  

 

Hakkasan at MGM Grand 

Chic, modern Hakkasan is dressed to impress in cool blue tones, and the food doesn’t disappoint, either. Michelin-starred chef Ho Chee Boon and his talented crew of wok and dim sum chefs whip up crowd-pleasing favorites like stir-fried black pepper rib eye beef with merlot and roasted silver cod with Champagne and honey. Oh, and you’ll want to save room for dessert. Unique offerings include black sesame and chocolate dumplings, coconut mousse, and banana lime ice cream.

  

Andrea's at Encore

Overlooking the pool of the Encore Beach Club, Andrea’s tempts with Wagyu beef and lobster rolls, New York strip steak with wasabi demi glacé, and truffled ponzu rock shrimp tempura. Snag a later-evening dinner reservation and get a chic soundtrack courtesy of Andrea’s resident DJs, who start spinning at 11 p.m. nightly.
