Fodor's Review

Set in a strip mall of popular Asian eateries and businesses among Las Vegas' Chinatown, Cathay House stays open late and combines the feel of a mom-and-pop operation with a sleek atmosphere and an à-la-carte menu of varied traditional Chinese favorites that emphasize the fiery flavors of Sichuan and Hunan. It's open daily for dim sum (10:30 am until 5 am), which attracts diners not only because of selections such as crispy chicken wings and shrimp or pork dumplings, but also for its fair prices and liberal portions. Among other local favorites are items such as squid with black bean sauce, thousand-year-old egg porridge, and salt-baked shrimp, served with heads and shells still on and garnished with fried chilies and garlic.

Best Chinese Food West of San Francisco

While it's always a little dicey to try chinese restaurants, (especially if you aren't familiar with the many dishes) Cathay House give the novice great opportunity to try dim sum. This is great as each dish is usually only a couple of dollars each, and carts come by frequently with different delicacies for sale. Very flavorful and as good of chinese food as anything I've tried outside San Francisco or Vancouver.
