Wiki: VegasRecommendations

Have a restaurant you always go to while in Vegas? A loose slot we should all try our luck on? Know a good coffee shop to get away from it all? Share it with us!


Tix4Tonight – discounts on shows, restaurants, golf. Closest location just in front of Riviera


Pho Saigon 8 at 5650 Spring Mountain one block East of Jones ( best Pho in town.

Capital Seafood at 4215 Spring Mountain Rd one block West of Valley View. Great Chinese Seafood at a reasonable price. Mon-Fri lunch specials are $5.95 to $7.95. Their Steamed Flounder is my favorite.

Orchids Garden at 5485 W Sahara Ave on the Corner of Sahara and Lindell (between Jones and Decatur). Best Dim Sum in town. Dim Sum served daily not just on Sunday.

Oyshi Sushi at 7775 S Rainbow Blvd. just South of Robindale. Located in the SW but worth the drive. Best All You Can East Sushi. They also have a lot of non-sushi offerings for the less adventurous.

Little Buddha (in the Palms) – awesome sushi and the best saketinis!

Drais (in Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon) – if you want a nice steak dinner, Drais is the spot. The walk through the smelly casino to get there is worth it.

Stack (in the Mirage) – Menu is excellent. Try the Hot Rocks.


Voodoo Lounge (in the Rio) – you can’t beat the views of the strip from here


Penn & Teller magic/illusion show featured on Wired

Cirque du Soleil’s O is the best Vegas show I’ve seen.

Siegfried & Roy’s Secret Garden and Dolphin Habitat
looks nice – lions and tigers and dolphins; oh my!
