    I'm finalizing my trip plans and considering one of the four restaurants above for solo dining one night during my Thanksgiving trip. I know the restaurants are very different but would still appreciate any thoughts from VMBers who have tried any of the above and, if more than one, how they compare. I know the ambiance at the Wynncore restaurants will be superior to Lotus of Siam.

    I dined solo at Lotus of Siam many years ago and enjoyed it but it seems like that would be more enjoyable with two or more people where you could share dishes. Thai food, however, is my favorite Asian food, followed by Chinese and then Korean. Not a huge Japanese fan but open to trying some dishes. I'm probably one of the few folks on the boards that does not care for sushi.

    I also heard great things about Le Thai downtown but for the evening in question, I'd rather dine at a Wynncore restaurant or at Lotus of Siam.

    Thanks in advance for any comments.

    Haven't eaten at the others but we eat at Wazuzu each time we are in Vegas.

    Drunken Noodles are outstanding.

    I'm not terribly well versed in Asian grub - Wazuzu is the only one of those I've tried. But I like it a lot. +1 for the drunken noodles (w/beef, spice level 4/5). And the crispy Brussels sprouts appetizer is a must.

    Thanks guys. I'd rather stay on property so I may try Wazuzu. I checked out the website again and this is what it says, with a note about the drunken noodles at the end.

    "Inventive fare in a wondrously unanticipated environment is what you'll find in Wazuzu at Encore. Chef Chen Wei Chan's exceptional Pan-Asian menu features flavors inspired by Chinese, Japanese, and Thai cuisine. Chef Chan’s training as a painter in Taiwan shows in the artful plating of his dishes, which succeed in being as beautiful as the glittering 27-foot dragon made of ninety thousand individual crystals that is the focal point of Wazuzu’s bold décor. Be sure to try the drunken noodles that were featured on Food Network’s "Best Thing I Ever Ate.""

    Wing Lei wins. I've had dinner at all the ones you named and Wing Lei is the best choice but the most expensive of them.
