Top 10 Korean Restaurants in Las Vegas

If you are in the mood to visit some Korean restaurants in Las Vegas, you might be surprised to find that you have a lot of excellent options. The Korean dining scene in Las Vegas has grown so much in the last five years that you can find almost any Korean food you crave.

I first became familiar with Las Vegas when my parents decided to retire there back in 1996.  I visited often from my home in New York and after my husband and I married, we made regular visits during the holidays.  When COVID hit in the spring of 2020, New York City felt like a dangerous place for our family so we decided to leave the city and go stay with my mother for the rest of the year.

It was my first time actually living and experiencing Vegas as a resident and we were very pleasantly surprised. We were able to enjoy Korean restaurants in Las Vegas both on and off the Strip and became very familiar with the blossoming Korea Town that was quickly gaining in popularity on the west side of Las Vegas.

Here are my top ten choices for awesome Vegas Korean restaurants, not in order, and all delicious.

This hip Korean-Mexican fusion restaurant is one of the most popular restaurants in all of Vegas right now so book early! Located at the smoke-free Park MGM Hotel right next to Eataly, it is the first Las Vegas restaurant owned by Roy Choi, the creator of the gourmet Korean-Mexican taco truck Kogi in LA. This eccentric interior was designed by Roy Choi himself and you will find a taste of LA street style right in Las Vegas. Walk through the faux liquor store to enter the actual restaurant. Enjoy the house DJ and order the set menu which includes Roy’s famous kogi tacos.

Honey Pig

This one is an old Vegas classic. Honey pig has been around for a while in Las Vegas and it still is one of the best Korean BBQ restaurants in town. The pork is grilled on the sottukkeoung (Korean traditional cast iron caldron lid) and you know how delicious meats are when they are grilled on cast iron.  Also the spicy bean sprouts and kimchi cooked with the pork fat on the sottukkeoung are just out of this world.  The fried rice cooked on the sottukkeoung is a must have at the end of the meal even if you are too full to eat one more bite.

Mr. TOFU

This is my favorite Korean soon tofu place in Las Vegas.  They have 11 different kinds of soon tofu stews including gopchang (beef tripe) which I have never seen at any other soon tofu places.  They prepare gopchang very well and I always order it. Their Yangnyum Gaejang (fresh crab with Korean spicy sauce) is so good that you will order it every time you are there.  Prepare to be amazed when they serve you 15 side dishes, all yummy.

YuXiang Korean Chinese Cuisine

This authentic Korean Chinese restaurant has excellent lunch combo menus.  Tangsuyuk or Kkanpungggi + 1 Jjajangmyun + 1 Jjambbong for $23.99 is a great lunch price and is enough food for 2 or even 3 people. The Jjambbong soup is so good and tangsuyuk is so crispy, you will find yourself back there when you visit Las Vegas next time.

Q Bistro

This sleek, retro-styled restaurant and bar is the place where you can have late night snacks and drinks.   Their menu has everything from Korean BBQ to Pizza and they have the best Korean fried chicken in Las Vegas.  All the food from the menu is Anju (food that you eat when you drink alcohol) which you can enjoy with various flavored soju and makgeolli.  Don’t forget that next door is Q karaoke where you can sing after the late night snacks and drinks.

CrunCheese Korean Hot Dog

This Korean style corn dog has been so popular in Korea for the last 5 years and I can see that it debuted with great success in the US as well this year.  They make the dough with panko and rice powder so the corn dog is so nice and chewy.  There are 10 different kinds of corn dogs, 7 condiments and 3 seasonings that you can mix and match to your own taste.  My favorite is Mozzarella & Sausage Hotdog.  If you feel adventurous, try Squid Ink Hotdog which has mozzarella and sausage inside.  You will be surprised how much you like it.

Sul & Beans

When you are done eating your Korean meal, you are now ready to eat Korean dessert and you can find the best at Sul & Bean.  Sul means snow in Korean and Beans refers to red beans.  Their signature menu is bingsu (Korean shaved ice dessert) and they serve 14 different kinds of bingsu.  On top of that, they serve 7 kinds of toast with Korean toppings and 5 different stuffings of Taiyaki/bungeoppang (fish shaped stuffed bread).   With these various selections, you’ll find yourself ending on a good note after the whole Korean cuisine experience.
