    Can anyone suggest a good, reasonably priced Chinese or other Asian restaurant in or around Chinatown / Spring Valley / west of the Strip, that happens to have TVs usually tuned to American football? Preferably NOT in a casino. We want to watch a game on Thursday but also want something spicy. Thanks everyone.

    A place that is not Las Vegas, but I wish it was.

    I doubt many authentic Asian restaurants have their TVs tuned to American football, and if they do, the sound will probably be off or barely loud enough to hear the commentary. The Chinese noodle and Korean tofu restaurants might be more accommodating with the sound, but I'm not sure if a spicy beef noodle soup or spicy Korean tofu soup is what you're looking for.

    I'm going to admit: I haven't been to many Asian restaurants outside of a casino in Las Vegas. However, I've been to the Chengdu Taste in Monterey Park and Rowland Heights, and they are both good. By proxy, the Chengdu Taste should be good as well, and it has pretty favorable reviews from what I've seen. I also see from Yelp pictures that it does have a TV, so maybe if you ask kindly enough, they'll let you see American football instead of Chinese variety shows.

    I looked through Yelp pictures, and Yunnan Restaurant and Khun Chai Thai seem to have pretty good and authentic food. They also have TVs that may or may not be able to be switched to American football. I'm sure you could try calling them ahead of time to ask if they would be accommodating to your request.

    Sorry I can't be of much help.

    Yup, for most restaurants you are there for the eating, not to stay and watch the game. That is usually reserved for the bars and sports bars.

    Not sure, maybe you can check with 777 at MSS? They may have some Asian dishes but not sure.

    lol
    was this a joke or serious post?

    something like SOCCER will have commentators in pretty much every language
    but american football is not popular enough with, not just chinese but, the international community in general to have language specific commentators live

    I say in this case grab a few panda expresses to go w your buddies and go to the local wherever your game is playing, buy some drinks, and watch the game like that

    This is true. The University of Illinois Football is in its second year of Mandarin broadcasts, but, that is largely due to the Chinese student population. http://www.npr.org/2015/10/16/449238085/university-of-illinois-engages-chinese-students-with-mandarin-football-broadcast

    just joking about sound. But don't yell "who let the dogs out" in a Chinese restaurant or the kitchen staff will all leave looking for them.
