The Cathay House has been a favorite for more than 15 years and a multi-year winner in the Las Vegas Review-Journal 's Best of Las Vegas Readers Poll. For appetizers, try the Pu Pu platter for two, which includes egg rolls, fried shrimp, spareribs, fried squid, curry puffs, skewered beef and chicken. The seafood soup is excellent. The Cathay dinner includes two appetizers, soup, rice and one entree per diner. The Selective dinner deluxe includes three appetizers, rice, soup, and one entree per diner. Full bar service is available.
When I walked into the Cathay House for lunch, the place was crowded and everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, waiters/waitresses, busboys, and ALL the customers, were speaking in Chinese! I knew right then that if you wanted good, authentic Chinese food, this was the place to go! I was not disappointed. I partook of eight different dim sums (and felt STUFFED), and each one proved to be delicious in all their different flavors. I'm sure that the other 40+ dim sums I looked at (but wisely declined) were just as delicious! I intend to go back again and again until I've tried them all! In spite of the excellent food, this is not a fine dining restaurant. It is exactly what it appears to be: a Chinese everyman's favorite restaurant. It is crowded, it is noisy, it is busy, but you will not find better dim sum anywhere and at such reasonable prices. You want ambiance and elegant dining? Go to any of the Strip hotels which have Chinese restaurants. But if you want great dim sum and the best value for your money, all those Chinese in there should tell you that this is the real deal!
