    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

    Pair your meal, where you can request a degree of hotness, with the excellent list of Reislings, a perfect balance to the spice. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    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

    The coconut ice cream with sticky rice is a must dessert! If you are full, share it with the table.

    Order the Nam Kao Tod: crispy rice salad with chilis, ginger, peanuts, mint, cilantro, peanut, lime & sour sausage. It's capital punishment last meal good.

    Touted as best Thai in America! This place is authentic & delicious. Get Nam Kao Tod, Crispy duck on drunken noodles, garlic prawns. Skip the traditional pad Thai stuff! Great wine list too

    The world class Thai food may be the draw here, but don't miss one of the best selections of German Riesling anywhere in the country! Great when you order your food a "2" spicy and unbearable!!!

    Can't skip the nam kao tod, khai soi and either get the prawns ocha or the softshell crab salad. Do not miss the sticky rice and mango AND the coconut ice cream. Read more

    Best Thai food I've had outside of Thailand. Skip the buffet and get the Nam Kao Tod, Koong Sarong, and Tom Kah Kai soup. It won't disappoint.

    Rachel W. · June 8, 2011
  • Andy E.

    Order the Panang Duck. Wonderful crispy duck in a cognac infused red cream curry

    Andy Ellwood · January 10, 2013

    Garnered more national attention than any other local restaurant, thanks to her take on Isaan & Chiang Mai–style Thai dishes & a wine list stocked with German & Austrian Rieslings

  • Holger L.

    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!

    Try the Pad Thai With Steamed Tofu

    @JohnMischief · April 6, 2012
  • A G.

    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.

    Amazing thai dishes - try beef salad and drunken noodles with sea bass. Nomnomnom.

    Don't leave without trying the Nam Kao Tod, Panang Duck, and Sea Bass Drunken Noodles. Best Thai I've ever had.

  • Shane G.

    Deep fried prawns with bacon, and Nam kao tod were both awesome!

  • Amanda F.

    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.

    Extensive wine list for a Thai Restaurant.

    Might be my favorite thai restaurant in the country. If you are in Vegas you have to go. Everything is yummy.

    Jeseka Hahn · August 28, 2011
  • Boxfire Press

    This place quite possibly has the best Thai food you'll find outside of Thailand. Take a cab from the strip ... your drive will know where it is.

  • Jack S.

    The wine list is amazing! I love this place the staff and food are wonderful!!!

    Jack Safar · January 4, 2011
  • Michael T.

    Order any of the northern style dishes, like kaeng khae soup. This is unquestionably the best Northern Thai restaurant east of Los Angeles.

    Michael Tiffany · April 27, 2009
  • Erich W.

    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.
