Love Thai food? Have some on your trip to Las Vegas at any of these great spots!
If Las Vegas is next on your list of places to visit, get ready for the hustle and bustle of the strip. All the places to visit and things to do on and around The Strip will leave you feeling tired and hungry at the end of a long and fun day in the entertainment capital of the world. What better way to treat yourself than hitting up one of the best spots in the area featuring super tasty Thai cuisine? Check out our favorite spots for Thai Food in Las Vegas that you must visit on your trip:
Weera Thai Cuisine
With a menu consisting of different Thai favorites, Weera Thai Cuisine is a great restaurant to visit for variety and taste. Its dining area is basic (but clean and spacious), so the real star is the food, which will cost around $12 to $25 per person. Opening hours are from 11am to 10pm daily, and if you’re a bit turned off by the fact that it’s off the Strip, you can always call in for a delivery after viewing their menu online.
When you see the long list of items available, you might be a little overwhelmed, so our advice is to head for the classics: Spring Rolls or Pad Thai. The familiar taste of these dishes will allow you to appreciate the fresh ingredients and robust flavors that are consistent in the other offerings of the restaurant.
If you happen to drop by between 4PM and 9PM, you can also order off the Happy Hour menu, which features $2 non-alcoholic drinks, $4 sake, $3 beers, $4 wines and $5 appetizers (BBQ Chicken, Papaya Salad, Kung Sarang, etc.). Compared to a lot of places in the area, that’s definitely good value for your money.

Las Vegas, NV
Plumeria Thai Café
Ever wondered what it’s like to fuse Thai and Hawaiian flavors together? Wonder no more, because Plumeria Thai Café has got you covered. Previously from Hawaii, the owners serve up unique dishes like their Chicken Katsu Curry (deep-fried chicken thighs with peanut curry sauce or sweet chili sauce served with rice plus macaroni salad) and Mango Sticky Rice. More details on their dishes can be found on their website.
Aside from their tasty dishes, Plumeria is a great choice because of its price range. Honestly, you’ll be full for around $10 and bursting for around $15. One thing to watch out for though is the restaurant’s opening hours, as it’s closed midday on most days. It’s open from 11am to 2pm and 5pm to 9pm from Thursday to Saturday and 12pm to 7pm on Sunday.
Overall, this is one of the best options in Las Vegas for Thai food with a twist. Aside from that, you’ll be eating delicious food for a fraction of what they normally cost in other restaurants, so it’s definitely worth the 15-minute trip off the Strip.
