One of the few Singaporean restaurants here. Everything they do here, they do well. Nothing spectacular, but they got the Malaysian, Thailand, Chinese influence in their food. Tasty, but with strong peanut and curry flare from what I tried. They have a good location, with good service, and good prices. My only complaint was the tapioca dessert was much too sweet, but they quickly gave me hot water for it. Not a large restaurant, so expect a more hole in the wall type setting. But don't come here for the atmosphere, come here to try some Singaporean food! Check it out here 4075 S Durango Dr Ste 106, Las Vegas, NV 89147.
There are a lot of korean bbq here in Las Vegas. But so far, this is my least favorite. Already had a bad feeling seeing a too small of a tank for 4 goldfish in the front of the restaurant. The rib eye was very tough to chew, there are very few side dishes for an ayce, and dessert? It's just a yokult drink and we had to ask for it as well. I also ordered the same meat twice and the taste was much different the second time. On top of everything, the price was higher than most other korean bbq. The only thing good was there was no wait on a Sunday night, probably because everyone else was waiting at another korean bbq. I will definitely not be coming back here again.
Panchos is more about the decor and party atmosphere than the food. Don't get me wrong, the food was delicious and abundant, but probably a bit americanized. Price was $$$ but again, you get a live band, and awesome large interior outdoor setting that's great for large parties amd kids, birthdays. Friendly service with great mexican vibe, music, complimentary chips and salsa, draft beers, good variety of foods, cant go wrong with that!
New Korean joint on the block, this time themed the ever so popular BTS boy band group. This restaurant was a bit of roller coaster to me. Walked in and decor was awesome, from a ceiling covered with flowers, walls with hand written tags and notes, tv's, it looked like a street market inside with a lot of space and seating. But then looked at the menu and noticed the prices were one of the highest I've seen. But! Prices are high because you get all you can eat banchan with a lot of variety from jap chae to bulgogi and everything in between. However! The taste was just mediocre which ultimately left me leaving a bit unsatisfied. They did a lot of right things, and I'll be back to try more dishes. But the seafood soondobu lacked a deep seafood taste that I am accustomed to like Soyo, it tasted a bit light. Plus it was very hot inside which I'm not sure if the air conditioning had some problems. Will update this review when I try more food. But so far, a solid B+ against its tough competition because of it's ayce banchan. Find it here 3650 S Decatur Blvd #24
Bomb Tacos! Good taco shop hole in the wall. Tacos came with a good amount of meat and fresh cilantro and onion. Sauces were mild, hoping for a bit more variety and flavor though. Pricing is normal about $2.50 to $3.50 a taco but plenty of variety. Uplifting traditional mexican music thumping through the speakers creating a good vibe. Wished for a more sour tasting pickled carrots and jalapenos but overall, nice place to stop, eat tacos, and leave. Friendly service. Find it here 3655 S Durango Dr #27.
Getting a bit more popular here in Vegas, this is a hot pot style restaurant at the bar. This picture is of their steamed meat and veggies however. They serve a bit more than just the shabu shabu which is a plus. Sauces are a wide variety, all with distinct flavors. It's clean and has a great ambience, but more for a date setting then family sit down, as there are no tables. Meat and veggies are fresh and savory. Not much to complain about except the pricing. It's a bit high for what you can make similarly at home. Friendly servers as well as they are a bit more intimate, helping to serve your needs right in front of you. However, there are many other hotpots popping up so competition is fierce. Yojie, Nabe, Chubby Cattle, just to name a few. Find it here, 5808 Spring Mnt Rd STE 103, 89146
First time to a vegetarian restaurant in my life. Thought I'd try something healthy after watching "What the Health" and "Earthlings". If you haven't seen those documentaries, watch it. But be prepared to see food a little differently. Anyway, this restaurant is Chinese style vegetarian meaning no animal meats and instead, uses soy and rice based products. They mimic food like pork belly, and beef and broccoli, but guarantee no animal products were used. They do a fantastic job in presentation, as each dish looks like the real thing! The taste is also probably as good as you can get, tasting very similar to the actual meat dish, and may actually trick a customer or two if they were not told it is vegetarian only. A little difficult to find, but you'll see other customers there that are very health conscience also eating in wonder how they can make their vegetarian dishes. I give this restaurant a solid A since I've never been to anything like this before. Find it here! 5115 Spring Mountain Rd 203
Another Korean restaurant review called Tang Tang Tang, or Tang3. Relatively new, it delivers on everything Korean besides the Korean bbq you find everywhere. From the simple but modern decor, to the metal chopsticks/cups/bowls, to the standard banchan and soup and rice dishes. Nothing very unique, but does a solid job in service and delicious food. Portions are good sized, cleanliness is spotless, and pricing is just about right. I really liked the japchae because they added some sesame oil to it. Also kimchee was nice and sour. The yukgaejang was nice and flavorful, however I would have liked a bit more glass noodles in there. The steamed pork was nice and soft and came with a lot of vegges. Overall, not bad and I'll probably come back to visit it to try other things. Find it at 6000 Spring Mountain Rd.
Mr. Chopstix is a hidden gem of a restaurant, very similar to the Noodle Man restaurant on Rainbow. Both from the outside, it seems like a fast food generic Chinese restaurant. But once you go inside, the clean, modern decor convinces you otherwise. With an open kitchen, you can be sure the dishes are clean. Only about a year old, they serve Taiwanese/Chinese food and have a wide variety of tasty authentic menu items. All the things I tried were very flavorful, delicious and heavy, but just a bit oily. Good and attentive service, pricing is fair, and they also serve boba! Will definitely come back here to try their other dishes.
5-30-17 Update - Came back here with my parents and they agreed this place is good. This time, we learned that about half the menu is catered towards American Chinese food, while the other half is more Chinese authentic. The side dishes are more authentic and would recommend trying those first. Grade still remains at an A-.
One of the few Filipino restaurants here in Las Vegas. And on top of that, one of the best ones. Got off to a slow start however, as the coffee we ordered was cold, service was a little shaky, but soon picked up as I believe the waiter was new and still training. I think the manager of the store took over and was very nice and helpful in ordering the food. If you want large portions, come here. The lechon was pretty much the whole leg of a pig and delicious. The dishes were all flavored very well, and also had a selection of sauces for everything. The decor is modern/urban with a bar right in the center with a good selection of beer. Very clean and spacious inside, and also a karaoke/dance/live music area. Seems to still be a new restaurant but looks like it's picking up. Will definitely come back here with more people. Solid Filipino restaurant here in Las Vegas. Check it out at 2131 Rock Springs Dr.
6-4-17 Update - Went back and got some of the same foods and some new ones. Still delicious and the plates come in large proportions. I recently learned they were on "Dirty Dining" and some of the vegetable they used were not fresh. However, the seem to have cleaned up the act and I would still come back for more. Tinola soup was surprising as it is served green but tastes normal, maybe a bit on the bitter side. Lechon rolls
