For a good decent Chinese meal on the Strip in Vegas, it seems it would be hard to find. Somehow, with the help of some good friends who grew up in Hong Kong, I have managed to find something as authentic as you would find in HK (I mean, look at the Chinese peeps standing in line to eat). 

Located inside the Venetian hotel, Noodle Asia serves authentic noodles and Dim Sum. The flavors are pronounced and the noodles range from beef noodle soup to Singapore vermicelli. It is a casual spot and especially good for those late night hangovers (it is open til 3am) or the morning hangovers. Just have a bowl of noodles or congee, and you'll be golden for a few more hours of partyin' in Vegas. 

The interior
MY FAVORITE DISH. FIRE HOUSE CHICKEN WINGS (6 FOR $9.95): These chicken wings are bomb! They're super crispy on the outside and moist and juicy on the inside. There is a bit of heat, not the type of heat that you would get from the South, but the Chinese way. I mean, I seriously could eat these wings all night long while watching some Lakers basketball. 
JELLYFISH SALAD ($9.95): This was just ok for me. It was a little spicy, cold the way it should be, but it just didn't taste as fresh as I would've liked. It's worth just ordering two sets of wings and skipping on this. 
SHANGHAI NOODLES ($14.95): Stir-fried Napa Cabbage, Black Mushrooms, Spinach and Pork. These noodles are amazing. I mean, it's pretty simple and a staple at most Chinese restaurants, but it was so freakin good this morning. It was especially better when it was doused in chili sauce that you ask for. The noodles were cooked to perfection and the cabbage added a nice crunch. It was earthy, hearty, and tasty. 
SZECHWAN BEEF ($14.95): This was probably my second favorite dish. There was a bit of spice and it was cooked like a traditional Taiwanese beef noodle soup. The noodles were perfect and the beef were super tender. It's a must order when here. 
RED WON TONS (8 FOR $8.95): Tossed in Szechwan chili, garlic sauce, pork fillings. This was delicious. The wonton wrapper was tender and the pork held up well to the sauce. I thought it was decent and a bit of a step down from the Din Tai Fung wontons, but hey, you're in Vegas. 
DAN DAN NOODLES ($13.95): Sauteed spicy peanut, sesame, minced pork sauce. This was probably one of my least favorite dish. It was too soupy in my opinion and not a traditional dan dan noodles I am usually accustomed to. It felt a bit flavorless compared to all the other dishes we ordered. I would skip this and order the beef noodle soup. 
Overall, Noodle Asia is a legit Chinese restaurant. It is a great go-to place if you want something not too fussy. It is Chinese food with a burst of flavor. I thought most of the dishes were comparable to what you find in the SGV, which is saying a lot. The cooks are Chinese and a lot of the customers are Chinese which speaks for itself.
