Mavens Overview: Beijing Noodle
Striking decor and the promise of authentic Chinese cuisine is the premise of Beijing Noodle No. 9. While authentic cuisine is nice, good food is even better. There is no doubt that Beijing Noodle 9 delivers on decor, even diners not thrilled by the food, were wowed by restaurant design. Large aquariums filled with goldfish line the entrance.
Gary Selesner President Caesars Palace, describes the concept of Beijing Noodle #9 as taken straight from the noodle parlors and hip cafes that have sprung up all over the Chinese capital. Combining classic Chinese peasant and street food with super-cool design.
The food reviews are mixed, leaning more towards positive. Many diners feel the prices are high in relation to the food provided, mostly noodle dishes. Service seems to be problematic, the internet buzz is fairly negative on this aspect of the restaurant. The decor gets a nearly universal thumbs up. Chef Yu's Pork & Chive Dumplings and salt and pepper chicken were singled out for praise.
Internet Buzz: Beijing Noodle
- Fresh, handmade noodles served in a very ritzy atmosphere that charges a fortune.
- The noodles were fantastic - hand made noodles with just the right consistency - not too firm, not too soft. Wonderful!
- I've been a fan of this place for awhile and absolutely love eating here when I'm craving salt & pepper chicken, shumai and house noodles.
- Feast on Asian delights in addition to noodles, like chef's specials such as Sichuan-style Ma Po Tofu, Beijing-style slow-roasted beef, and salt & pepper shrimp.
- Chef Yu's Pork & Chive Dumplings, pan fried, (6 for $11.09) were delicious, filled with plenty of flavorful meat and spices, and the dumplings had the right consistency. They were some of the best dumplings I have had, very fresh and plump.
- Chef's Special Handmade Noodles with Sliced Pork and Mushroom (Beijing style) ($15.09, serves 1-2). The noodles were thick, reminding me of udon noodles, and had a bit of a chewier, doughy texture, unlike thin yakisoba noodles. The sauce atop the noodles was very good, a milder gravy, and the pork pieces were tender and meaty. The mushrooms added a slight earthiness of the taste.
- This place isn't cheap but it's Vegas and it's inside Caesar's Palace so my thoughts are you get what you pay for. The cool interior with the white cut out patterns and huge gold fish tank is very modern and chic. The food is great with hand made pulled noodles and dim sum. The chef was actually hired from China for the restaurant so it's as authentic as you can get by Vegas standards.
- The scallops were not terrible, just paltry (only six served) and bland with an incompatible pile of transparent pasta underneath. The braised beef dish, however, was deplorable. Whether the noodles were homemade or not, they looked like the kind of thick chow mein you would get at a bad suburban take-out joint.
- First and foremost, the service was horrible. Our waiter took a ridiculously long time to actually get to our table and provide any kind of service. He took forever to come and take our order, bring out water, provide a fork for my girlfriend who can't use chopsticks, bring out our food, refill our drinks and bring out the check! To top that off, he had such an amazing attitude. Not! He was pretty rude, not going to lie.
- Poor service, attitude, however - excellent food (noodle dishes only)
- I really got the feeling that this was not just a restaurant in Caesar's but rather a respite from the smokey,tacky glory that is Vegas. One of the most brilliant interior designs, with pops of warm colors heating up the snowy garden that is the inside.
