    In a run down mall about 15 minutes from the strip, this unremarkable exterior opens to reveal a kitchen serving some of the best, and most affordable, Thai food in the country. The menu is endless an

    Many entrees are less than $10 at this Asian restaurant that's received many great reviews over the years. They serve distinctive Northern Thai dishes at this hidden spot off the strip. Read more

    So much better than any of the over-hyped, über-expensive restaurants on the strip. Very authentic Thai food and a killer German Riesling selection to boot. Great for lunch and dinner!

    This is by far the best thai food in the country. They mean it with the spice, so stay between 2-4, unless you can handle the heat.

    Don't let the location or decor fool you; you will probably have the best Thai food of your life here. The Khao Soi is great. Watch out- Their idea of spicy may not match yours!

    There is a team of beggars on bicycles who work the lot and swoop in on anyone coming out the door or getting out of a car. Do not give them money: just ignore and keep moving.

    Get the nam kao tod as an app. And they'll ask you how spicy you want everything on a scale of 1-10 where 10 is very spicy. Average spice of 5 still has a good amount of heat so be cautious.
