If you ask any local in Las Vegas what their favorite Thai food spot is, the answer is almost always, Le Thai. Chef Dan Coughlin and his crew have perfectly paired modern culinary fusion with more traditional recipes that come right from Dan’s grandmother. It’s that mixture of creativity and comfort that makes every meal here so much fun.
Centrally located on East Fremont Street, Le Thai is one of those delightfully cozy hidden gems that offers an oasis from all the madness that surrounds the Downtown Las Vegas party scene. We recommend you get there early, as Le Thai almost always has a wait. The restaurant serves as a popular foodie destination during peak dinner hours, as well as being one of the go-to late night spots due to Le Thai’s close proximity to all the best bars and the fact that it stays open until 2am on the weekend.
The atmosphere is laid-back and inviting, plus, there’s even a beer garden to enjoy, but it’s the food that keeps people coming back to Le Thai in droves and singing the restaurant’s praises. The dishes are very authentic, but also offer plenty of selections for those that are not so familiar with traditional Thai cuisine. Chef Dan’s Three Color Curry is a big fan-favorite, along with the short rib fried rice. Think you’ve had the best Tom Yum soup? Think again. The portions are pretty decent size, so you can share dishes, but don’t forget to save room for dessert though, as Le Thai’s mango and sticky rice recipe is the best way to close out your meal.
The next time you’re craving some authentic Thai food in Sin City and want to experience a local delight, head for culinary adventure Downtown by hitting up Le Thai. You’ll discover first-hand why this spot has proven to be such a big hit and why it’s considered one of the best Thai spots in the city.
