    I'm looking for a good Chinese restaurant on the strip that serves great noodle dishes. My wife is pregnant and looking for some good noodle dishes. i on the other hand am picky but like spicy food like Kung pow chicken or orange chicken served pretty plain. We are staying at the Wynn so red8 is our first thought So open to suggestions near us.

    This is for others who might view this thread.

    Food Express @ Palace Station has some of the best Chinese food I have eaten.

    The place looks like a hole in the wall which somehow adds charm.

    If you are willing to fade $20 for a plate of Kung Pao Chicken, Red8 is going to be just fine. For a bit more you could go to ZINE Noodles (also Dim Sum) at Palazzo. I think it is a cooler looking room, trendy. Tons of cheap places next door (strip mall to your North has a couple of places) and I think Fashion Show Mall has a couple, including Panda Express.

    Not cheap, but I can vouch for Zine. I ate there on a comp once and the room, service and food all exceeded my expectations.

    How about Noodle Asia at the Venetian? Noodle dishes I've had there have always been good. Probably less formal, cheaper than the Wynn place.

    If you go west on Sands which is the road just south of the Wynn, that will turn into Spring Mountain which is packed with Asian restaurants. Only a couple miles at most from the Wynn and you'll be right in the middle of China town. You could probably pay for the cab and still pay about the same as compared to any place at the Wynn.

    It's a bit of a walk from Wynn to Caesars, but we've eaten at Beijing Noodle No. 9 at least half a dozen times now and always really enjoy it. They serve several different types of noodles, all made on-site.

    "BEIJING NOODLE NO.9

    Beijing Noodle No. 9 is a bustling Las Vegas Chinese restaurant serving authentic Northern Chinese cuisine, with an emphasis on noodles handmade every day right here in this Caesars Palace Las Vegas casual dining restaurant."

    Two excellent choices at the Gold Coast including Ping Pang Pong...one of the best I Vegas...the other is Noodle House (could be wrong on the name) but, it is also very, very good.

    I've eaten at the Noodle Exchange 4 or 5 times, but retract the nice things I previously posted after eating there in late May. The Kung Pao chicken was okay, but the Mongolian beef, which I had gotten once before, was way oily. But aside from the food, we had to ask for napkins, beg for my missing eggroll, ask for additional water, and the second entry arrived at least 10 minutes after the first. No one ever checked back to see we needed anything; such as, noodles for the soup. We gave up waiting for the check and just told them what we had at the register. I wouldn't say good service is one of the Noodle Exchanges strong points to begin with, but the staff's indifference has turned me off for good. Sitting at the counter works out a lot better if you insist on eating there.
