    Best Thai food in La Vegas. Be careful of the heat level their medium is an American extra hot, but delicious if that's what you like. It's in a trashy strip mall with no atmosphere.

    The Nam Kao Tod appetizer is indeed delicious. Wife loved the Pad Thai. I thought the Khao Soi was amazing. The sticky rice and coconut ice cream was divine. Our server was very kind and attentive.

    Arguably one of the best Thai restaurants around. Try the Northern style dishes for something different. Loved the larb and nam kao tod. Super busy so come early or make a reservation.

    A tip from expert reviewer Fodors, "For a main course, try dishes such as charbroiled beef liver mixed with green onion and chile, or the chicken and vegetables with Issan-style red curry." Read more

    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

    Crispy fried (to perfection) duck in panang curry. Level 3 spicyness waa perfect for my gf, if you like spicy food try 5 or more at your own risk ;)

    Been here 5+ times
    Been here 4 times in a year. Pro tip, either make reserv two days before or wait in line 30 min before opening. Usually one hour wait, here's half hour message nearby though. Best Thai in US, period.

    My favorite Thai in L.V. The quality of the dishes is prime. The venue is often overbooked (on Saturday nights). Book a table min. a week before. Try red curry or one of Chef's signature dishes.

    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!

    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.

    Best Thai restaurant I have tried. Menu is huge so do your research before. The crispy rice is great, the shrimps in a blanket amazing, and you can't go without trying the Khao Soi. Full review... Read more

    Best Thai food I've ever had. Sort authentic menu with all regions represented. Try the southern dishes for some unique flavors. The wine list also kills it. Hidden gem of Vegas.

    Order the Nam Kao Tod, satay, yellow curry beef, Rad Na, Musaman Chicken Curry, garlic prawn, roasted duck curry, crispy duck with chili mint leaves, thum ka noon, coconut ice cream with sticky rice.
  • Xenios T.
    Probably the best Thai restaurant I've been to, ever. The Chilean sea bass is a must! Great collection of wine and unfiltered sake..Simply amazing. Long wait so make sure you book

    Crispy duck on drunken noodles, great!! All plates $10-15, family style. Great quality and value, especially compared to any strip restaurant.

    Ask "how spicy" a dish would be...for them "it's not that spicy" may be different from your level. Must-try Nam Koa Tod, Catfish filet with sauce, then sticky rice with mango AND coconut ice cream!!

    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!

    Probably the best namtok I've ever had. Khao Soi was tasty, and the sai ooa was perfect. We just walked in, were told it'd be an hour wait and were seated in 20 minutes.

    Best Thai restaurant ever! Food and service are great. Prices affordable. The front of the restaurant for those fine dinners might look kinda creepy, but once you are inside it's a different story.

    After spending some time at the bar (it's super busy here) we went ballistic on Lotus of Siam's Thai food. Duck curry, pad Thai and of course papaya salad! So much flavor #believethehype

    Does not look that nice from the outside but the inside is quite cozy. The food is delicious. Make sure you order a couple of things and share. They are all great

    So much to try... Crispy rice, khao soi, drunken noodles with crispy duck, northern larb, mango sticky rice.... Maybe the best Thai restaurant across the US

    Been here a number of times, it's certainly good but nowhere near the best Thai food in Vegas. Get there early. We've shoulder up and the wait was 2 hours. We left. Extensive menu.

    I got the Tom Yum soup level 9. Plenty of spice and giant whole pieces of shrimp. Also had the chili mint beef. Again spicy and awesome. Not one thing I would change.

    They give you giant glasses of water and heaping bowls of rice for a reason. Some of the dishes are crazy spicy. Try the crispy duck Penang or sea bass drunken noodles.

    I’ve been here to this place at least once; the food in here is very tasty and full of flavor, just the right combination of sweet and salty. Portion was just moderate.

    Anthony Bourdain's tip, only order northern Thai food! Nam Prik, Nam Kao Tod, Jackfruit salad, Hung lay, Northern Larb or Khao Soi

    Great service. Drunken noodles are so good (and spicy). #14 is great and very unique. Skip the traditional pad Thai, etc.

    It isn't on the menu because they don't always have the ingredients, but ask if they are able to make an order of miang kum for an appetizer. It is simply devine!
