Being the entertainment capital of the world, it’s only natural that Las Vegas features a myriad of international cuisines. With Thai food ever-growing in popularity, Vegas is home to some of the top Thai restaurants in the country.
Check out the below guide for the best Thai food restaurants in Vegas right now:
Location: Fremont Street
Located in Downtown Las Vegas, Le Thai is a wonderful celebration of Thai food, famous for its red, yellow, and green curries. Protein options include:
- Pork (the most popular)
The restaurant has been a massive hit since opening in 2011, largely thanks to head chef Dan Coughlin’s inspiration. Dan based the menu on his Grandma’s Thai home cooking, and the menu’s dishes certainly have the feel of home-cooked goodness inside!
Le Thai has since opened a second location, mainly focused on take-out orders.
Lotus of Siam
3 Locations: E Sahara, Flamingo Rd & Red Rock Casino
Opened in 1999, Lotus of Siam is an award-winning restaurant and Vegas staple, rising to fame thanks to the stunning authentic cooking of Chef Saipin and her husband. It’s one of the go-to places for a taste of Thai in Vegas – especially if you want something a bit different.
Lotus of Siam brings Northern Thai cuisine to Vegas, with signature dishes including Khao Soi (crispy duck served on egg noodles with curry sauce) and Garlic Prawns (deep-fried with the shells on and sauteed in a special garlic sauce).
Arawan Thai Bistro and Dessert
Location: E Sahara Ave
Arawan Thai Bistro is a relaxed Thai dining experience located east of the Strip. There are many vegetarian and vegan options for diners, and while it serves up classic Thai delights, the most exciting offerings on the menu are desserts – including delicious Thai cakes, ice creams, and custards.
Arawan’s goal is to use only the freshest ingredients, giving its dishes a real flavor punch and quality. If you’re looking for high-class Thai dining in a low-key atmosphere, Arawan is worth the visit.
Location: ARIA Resort & Casino
Found in the ARIA Resort & Casino, Lemongrass will tantalize your tastebuds with its unique take on Thai food. Combining traditional Thai with a modern twist, you can enjoy dishes such as spicy pad Thai and wok-tossed lobster.
Group and private dining areas are available upon reservation. Take-out is also available.
Weera Thai Restaurant
Locations: W Sahara Ave, Chinatown, and S Rainbow Blvd
Weera Thai is a celebration of the sumptuous flavors from Southern Thailand that strays from the Bangkok-inspired Thai food most people know. It has 3 locations in Las Vegas.
The menu is extensive, but the top picks are the Thai Street Food dishes:
- Guay Tiew Tom Yum Moo – rice noodle soup with BBQ pork and crushed peanuts
- Khao Pad Naem – fried rice with fermented sausage.
- Kao Soy – Northern Thai style egg noodle curry soup with different meat options
Weera Thai opened its first restaurant in Thailand in 1978. It’s been a Las Vegas staple since 2010 and continues to be a hit with tourists and locals alike, with three locations currently in operation.
There’s more to Las Vegas cuisine than celebrity chefs on the Strip. With the number of diverse Thai restaurants in the city, you can experience a taste from nearly every region of Thailand. Make a reservation at any of these restaurants and start your culinary adventure today.
