Canvasing the Las Vegas dim sum scene requires picking through references to wild nights on The Strip, earnest attempts to recover from hangovers and the anguish of losing money at the poker table. It’s enough to make a modest diner blush.

The general consensus online is that Las Vegas dim sum is good, though not great. It provides a welcome attraction for tourists and a surprisingly authentic dining experience for locals in the know.

Like most things unrelated to gambling in Las Vegas, commenters note that the local dim sum scene plays on a second stage. Servers can be distracted, food quality can be uneven.

That said, as you’ll see below, there are some standouts in town, including a few distinctly Las Vegas experiences. Dim sum in a casino? Try KJ Dim Sum and Seafood at the Rio or Ping Pang Pong at the Gold Coast. Dim sum 24 hours a day? There’s Orchids Garden.
