The Wynn is probably the most Asian casino resort on the entire Las Vegas Strip. The interior is all decked out in red, and there are many Asian restaurants that look like they have pretty authentic, good food. You won't be forced to eat General Tsao's Chicken or Moo Shu when you dine here.
Unfortunately, there's always a long line at every restaurant every mealtime. And all the restaurants are also very pricey. More expensive than food in major cities like New York, for sure.
We didn't want to wait an hour for a noodle bar so we ended up going into this Cantonese restaurant called Wing Lei, and boy, were we glad that we did. It was $68.88 (yes, those 8's is another sign of how they're trying their very best to attract the Asian clientele) before tax/tip per person for the dim sum brunch. From what I saw, the dim sum brunch was only running from Christmas to sometime after the New Year's.
For $68.88, you get dim sum that they push around in carts. If a particular thing interests you but you don't see it on a cart, you can tell them to prepare it and bring it out specially for you. They also have a delectable buffet spread where you can walk up and grab a plate of whatever you fancy. There's sushi, lobster, crab, some stir-fry dishes, soup, noodles, congee and more. But you'll want to go easy on those; the dim sum is by far the best.
Was this worth it for almost $90 per person after tax, tip and the charge for hot tea? I'd say it was, because every item was exquisitely prepared. This is not run-of-the-mill, mass produced dim sum. This is top quality, and you'll be able to tell right away if you are into good Chinese food.
How good was this restaurant? So good, we decided to come back again on the same day for dinner. We were stuffed when we left the restaurant at 3pm after a luxuriously slow and decadent meal, but when 9:30pm rolled around, we somehow had enough room to partake in another awesome Wing Lei meal.
