Not just regarded as the best Thai restaurant in Las Vegas but often referred to as the top Thai eatery in North America, Lotus of Siam is something of an institution in Sin City. Recently reopened following the previous collapse of the venue’s roof, the restaurant offers delicious khao soi (crispy duck in curry with egg noodles), nam kao tod (crispy rice with sour cubed pork sausage) and more.

Specializing in Thai street food, this is the perfect restaurant for diners looking to sit and enjoy a meal without being rushed out. The wine list is incomparable and pairs perfectly with dishes like the sai oua—a Northern Thai spicy herb sausage). If you’re craving delicious simplicity, opt for the pad kra lum pree, a dish made with stir fried cabbage and bacon. Make sure to also visit sister restaurant Chada Thai & Wine.

The Downtown restaurant revolution started when owner Dan Coughlin opened this hip Thai joint that matched the vibe of the bars on Fremont East. Of course, that really only matters given the eatery’s impeccably delicious food offerings. Dishes like short rib fried rice, waterfall beef and the best eggplant and tofu in the city make this place a must-try.

Tucked away in Commercial Center, this hole in the wall was doing vegan before vegan was cool. Sure, meat substitutes are available, but those craving vegetarian and vegan entrées should just stick to the tofu. Everything from pumpkin stir-fried with basil leaves to kang-ped vegetarian curry highlights the versatile protein. Worry not: There are also dishes for carnivores.

They do many things well here. Duck lovers can choose from a multitude of options. Duck red curry might be the most obvious pick, but we suggest you take a chance with a tamarind, garlic and honey-glazed version of the bird.
