Asia is home to a diverse set of cuisines that have become popular all around the world. Some have made the jump largely unchanged, while others have mixed, matched and repackaged in ways that make them newly unique.

We’ve assembled a showcase of a few Asian restaurants in Las Vegas that have been on our mind lately, highlighting winning dishes ranging from pho and noodle counters to dim sum and Korean barbecue spots.

Asian Restaurants in Las Vegas

Enjoy Korean BBQ and more at Chosun Hwaro & Nara Teppan at Miracle Mile Shops

Chosun Hwaro & Nara Teppan at the Miracle Mile Shops in Planet Hollywood Las Vegas is the newest eatery on this list, offering two distinct styles of dining: Korean barbecue and Japanese teppanyaki.

Teppanyaki – some folks know it as hibachi – is the social “dinner and a show” experience with onion volcanos and culinary showmanship. Teppan chefs are dining’s equivalent of flair bartenders, cracking jokes and juggling shrimp to dazzle and delight you and the other groups seated at the table.

On the flip side, K-BBQ is usually the kind of spot where you cook your own food on the grill at the center of your table, but at Chosun Hwaro, you’ll have someone cooking at your table and making conversation as they prepare your meal.

The generous portions of meat are almost worth the price of admission alone, but you also get hearty traditional side dishes – known as banchan – like soups, noodles, dipping sauces, salads, veggies and lot more. Make sure you come hungry.

Street Style Eats at Sekushi and Yong Kang Street Chinese Restaurant at Paris Las Vegas

Although Paris Las Vegas is based on the City of Light, there’s are two restaurants along its restaurant row that showcase cuisines from Asia: Sekushi and Yong Kang Street Dumpling & Noodle House.

The sushi joint Sekushi boasts a cool Japanese street food stall ambience and offers dishes that combine flavors across cuisines with high quality ingredients and unique rolls. The Sekushi roll, for instance, is a savory delight uniting foie gras and tuna, with sweet shoyu and micro coriander greens. While the focus here is on sushi, don’t sleep on the Wagyu beef or Kumamoto oysters, either. Night owls will want to try the creamy seafood Udon soup known as “The Hangover Cure.”

Yong Kang Street also has a bit of a street-food look and feel, taking inspiration from the restaurant district in Taipei, Taiwan. You’ll find flavors from Taiwan, Hong Kong and China on the menu, with dishes like various noodle soups, fried rice, wok-tossed delights and dim sum.

Try Diverse tastes at Pho Da Nang Vietnamese Kitchen and KJ Dim Sum & Seafood at Rio

Restaurant owners can’t resist puns when it comes to the famous Vietnamese noodle soup dish, and neither can we: Rio’s selection is pho-nomenal.

Pho Da Nang offers all sorts of pho options, from “safe” chicken or brisket to the more adventurous tripe and tendon options. Other Vietnamese dishes include charbroiled pork with rice noodles and fried egg rolls. If it’s warm weather or you just don’t want soup, dig into a delicious pork, chicken or beef banh mi sandwich.

With a convenient walk-up counter, late hours and oodles of noodle options, there’s really no excuse for you to not be chowing down on some pho whenever you’d like.

Rio is also home to KJ Dim Sum & Seafood, which offers an authentic selection of Chinese cuisine presented dim sum style on roaming tableside carts. Even if you aren’t familiar with Chinese dishes, you can actually see what you’re ordering, which is a plus. You can also order larger portions and options like noodle dishes and soups from the kitchen, if you’d like.

Dig in at Beijing Noodle No. 9 and Nobu at Caesars Palace

You want options? Try 14 pages of options at Beijing Noodle No. 9 at Caesars Palace – maybe just not all at once. This stylishly decorated Chinese food spot looks almost dream-like, with bright white lighting and hundreds of goldfish swimming in the walls.

Although noodle is in the name, there are tons of dishes of all sorts to choose from. If you’re overwhelmed by the sheer selection, try the Beijing chicken with mushroom noodles, duck fried rice with pickle, honey walnut prawns or the seafood chow mein with abalone sauce.

Also at Caesars Palace is the high-end Japanese restaurant by Nobu Matsuhisa, Nobu. Enjoy fine dining, teppan tables and delicious sushi and sashimi selections. The signature black cod with sweet miso should be at the top of anyone’s list at Nobu.

If Asian restaurants aren’t your thing, you can try other restaurants in Las Vegas that suit your cravings.
