Thai food is both spicy and flavorful. Having strong flavors of lime and fish sauce, Thai cuisine has grown more popular in the United States over the years. Las Vegas has had the opportunity for Anthony Bourdain to grace the town with his presence and try Thai food, meaning you should do the same. Vegas has one of the most popular Thai restaurants in the country and if you are in Sin City and are craving Thai food, here are the places that you need to try.

1. Lotus of Siam

Visited by many celebrities as well as foodies, Lotus of Siam is known for being busy any day of the week. Located near the Stratosphere, Lotus of Siam is a place where locals and tourists alike will line up to dine at. People go for the hype, but end up staying for the infamous khao soi, a curry noodle dish with crispy duck on top.

2. Arawan Thai Bistro and Dessert

If you tried to go to Lotus of Siam without a reservation and don't want to wait for a table, I highly suggest you go to Arawan Thai Bistro and Dessert located in the same plaza. Arawan looks extra fancy upon first entering, and after tasting the food, you will realize that the food here is no joke either. Make sure that you save room for dessert too because the pastry chef definitely knows what she is doing and creates the most sophisticated Thai desserts

3. Chada Street

If you are looking to have Thai food and get a little tipsy on the side, there is always Chada Street in Chinatown. Not only does it have good Thai food that locals rave about, but it also has a large wine selection that pairs well with their menu. Just ask a staff member for a wine suggestion and they will be more than happy to help. 

4. Le Thai

If you are looking to go off the strip and don't want to go to Chinatown, why not try Le Thai downtown? Le Thai still holds onto the Vegas party scene since it is located downtown, but combines it with amazing food that's worth. Their short rib rice tends to be the crowd pleaser there, keeping people coming back for seconds.

5. Chao Thai  

If you are near UNLV and have time to go eat nearby, Chao Thai is definitely the place to go. With competitive prices that attract customers and great flavors that keep them coming back, what more can you ask for in a Thai restaurant? If you ever go, their pad thai is one of the best in the city and is also served with a crispy roll and salad during lunch at the extremely affordable price of $5.95.
