Some of Vegas’s top dim sum comes from this busy Chinese restaurant off the Strip. Open daily, the carts rove through the dining room all day long. At dinner, crab claw and roasted duck ($9.28 each) make the most expensive items on the menu.

In a space sparkling with a 27-foot dragon made of 90,000 individual crystals, chef Jimmy Widjaja puts a spin on Chinese and other Asian flavors. The restaurant’s drunken noodles earned a feature on the Food Network’s Best Thing I Ever Ate, while dim sum like shu mai, har gow, and steamed barbecue pork buns; a Cantonese barbecue plate with roasted duck, barbecued pork, and red spare ribs; and more make for a varied menu.

Wing Lei

It’s no surprise that Wing Lei can claim the first Michelin star ever awarded to a Chinese restaurant in the U.S., with a crispy-skin Imperial Peking duck carved tableside in a golden-hued dining room planted with a couple 100-year old pomegranate trees. Chef Ming Yu also serves truffle soup dumplings, wok-fried Maine lobster, and a Peking duck tasting with the delicacy served six ways. For a casual option in the same casino, visit Wynn’s Red 8 for Cantonese noodle dishes, dim sum, and Hong Kong-style barbecue, all served in a dining room decked out in rich reds just off the casino floor.

Look for Chengdu's homegrown specialties of bang bang chicken, couple's sliced beef, green chili chicken, diced rabbit with younger sister's secret sauce, and the "sorrowful" mung bean noodles.
