Dumplings from Xiao Long Bao.

Las Vegas’s most culturally rich area sits just a mile west of the Strip. Chinatown features just about every kind of Asian cuisine imaginable, from Chinese Sichuan dishes, Vietnamese pho and vermicelli, Korean barbecue, and a wide variety of Japanese dishes spanning sushi, robata, ramen, and more.

After a meal, try out SweetHoney Dessert at Shanghai Plaza with artfully presented Cantonese-style desserts. Plated on the brand’s orange-hued tableware, the small portions and price point encourage diners to try less common choices, such as the hot, or cold, snow fungus and papaya soup, mango pomelo sago tofu pudding, stewed hashima coconut soup, and Thai black glutinous rice.

Chinatown stretches about three miles along Spring Mountain Road from Rainbow Boulevard east to Valley View Boulevard. Here, a look at some of the best Asian restaurants in Chinatown.
