District One is a great example of Las Vegas Chinatown’s diverse and authentic culinary scene. While the menu is heavily Vietnamese, it also offers a mix of Southeast Asian-inspired dishes. The restaurant takes its name from Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), which is separated into 12 districts with District One at the epicenter. Find pho oxtail, pho tai nam with rib-eye steak, pho bo vien with beef balls, pho ga with chicken, pho tom with shrimp, and the decadent live whole Maine lobster pho, going for market price.
Rated with 4.5 stars and over 4400 reviews, this Asian BBQ restaurant is obviously a winner.

With options to either cook yourself or to order from the kitchen, there is something for everyone. You and your party can share dumplings, beef carpaccio, and bulgogi bibimbap plus Korean chicken, garlic shrimp, filet mignon, and scallops.
Another one of Dan Coughlin’s Asian restaurants in Las Vegas, Le Thai is noted as one of the first restaurants to help spark the now-thriving food scene in Downtown Las Vegas. Head to the restaurant for dishes such as the three-color curry, a mixture of red, yellow, and green curry, served with mixed vegetables, steamed rice, and a choice of chicken, beef, pork, shrimp, or tofu. Le Thai is also open until midnight Fridays and Saturdays for those who need a spicy bite to eat in between bar hopping.
We’re always a fan of Chinese takeout, but why not step it up a notch? You are in Vegas, anyway. Mott 32, the Chinese restaurant with Hong Kong roots, features a mix of Cantonese, Sichuan, and Beijing influences on its roster of Chinese dishes. Paired with incredible style and carefully-cocktails, their menu offers items luxurious such as Peking duck, crispy roasted pork belly, traditional Iberico pork Shanghainese soup dumplings, south Australian lobster har gow, and Australian wagyu beef puffs. This will be a Chinese meal you will never forget.
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. The restaurant is decorated to resemble a traditional Japanese restaurant with bamboo columns and oversized light fixtures that have been customized to make the experience really authentic.

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.
