    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.

    Make a reservation to avoid the wait. Egg rolls are vegetarian, and make a great appetizer. Try the spicy vegetable soup if you enjoy a good soup. The Khao Soi can be made vegetarian and is great.

    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.

    Best Thai in Vegas & close to the Strip. Get the crispy fried rice appetizer (Nam Khao) , shrimp on drunken noodle ( the shrimp is so crispy), papaya salad is spicy & sweet. Duck & chicken noodle

    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.

    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

    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

    Delicious Thai food and outstanding service with friendly staff. I recommend the crispy duck in panang curry. My wife likes the pad Thai. Don't forget the coconut ice cream on sticky rice!

    Everything here is amazing. Go hungry and order multiple dishes. I love the nom khao sod and their amazing Riesling selection. They can make it vegetarian 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 ;)
  • Nick D.
    Nick DohmenOctober 28, 2013
    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.
  • Krystal P.

    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.

    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!!
  • Erich W.
    Erich WiernaszJanuary 5, 2015
    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.

    Holger LuedorfJanuary 7, 2014
    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!
  • Scott M.
    Scott MantheyOctober 10, 2015
    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.

    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.

    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!
  • 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

    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.

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

    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.

    Brad HagerOctober 9, 2015
    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.

    Jess HueyMarch 31, 2016
    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

    You have to try Charbroiled Prawns. These prawns, served either in a rich, spicy sauce, or a milder tamarind sauce, are Fantastic, I had them served at spice level 4-5 and they were Perfect!

    Northern soup A with beef. But, don't order it spicy. I love spice & heat but 6 was painful. Tasty, but painful.
  • Scott M.
    Scott McGrathJune 27, 2013
    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!
