There are a handful of restaurants synonymous with Las Vegas, and one of them is Tao Asian Bistro. Open for more than 15 years, the restaurant serves a mix of Thai, Chinese and Japanese cuisine in an upscale, decadent setting with a hand-carved, 20-foot-tall, gold Buddha.

Dim sum and small plates are the perfect start to a dining experience that dives into categories from the sea, from the sky and from the land. Indulge in a grilled 12-ounce Imperial wagyu ribeye with yuzu cilantro butter, Peking duck for two or the Thai sweet and spicy shrimp.

Noodle and rice dishes come in many different recipes; there’s also sushi and sashimi, not to mention a robust selection of Tao’s specialty rolls. For dessert, one must-try is the giant fortune cookie served with white and dark chocolate mousse. Definitely invite others to share!
