Mavens Overview: Grand Wok

Grand Wok and Sushi Bar at the MGM Grand does its best to cover all the bases of Asian cuisine. The following excerpt from their web site clearly demonstrates this.

A culinary cross-section of Chinese, Japanese, Thai, Korean, and Vietnamese, the Grand Wok satisfies every craving for Asian cuisine. Serving sushi all day... Our specialty entrée dishes include sweet and savory Shrimp Pad-Thai Noodles, spicy Kung Pao Chicken with Japanese Tinker Bell Peppers, Singapore Style Dungeness Crab, Pan Fried Sea Bass, and Beef Tenderloin with Crisp Asparagus in a Tangy Black Pepper Sauce.

The Internet Buzz is middling, as many people point out, trying to cover the entire Asian spectrum of cuisine, sets the restaurant for failure, or at least middling reviews.

Internet Buzz: Grand Wok

  • I've been coming here for a few years now because it's so convenient. Staying at the MGM Grand it is way too easy to just hop in here for a quick bite -- especially when you don't want to be pulled away from the craps or pai gow tables for too long. It's really not bad here, but nothing really to write home about. It's a combination Chinese and Japanese restaurant which means they serve everything from combination fried rice and wonton soup to premium sushi cut rolls and sake. The food here is just average though.
  • Phenomenal sushi in a great atmosphere. We ordered one entrée (a chicken curry dish) to share, and each of the five of us picked one sushi roll from the menu. All of the food was wonderful. The eel was the best I've ever had. It was a dish that I've been craving since we left Las Vegas
  • Tom yum koong soup. It is nothing like the ones you get at the thai restaurants. The toppings are sure plentiful with fat shrimp but the broth itself is very bland with only a hint of lemon grass flavor and no spice to it. It also comes with noodles.
  • If you're looking to do some hard-core sushi eating, this is not the place - the maki rolls, nigiri, and sashimi are all very typical American sushi offerings... nothing overly exciting or different. But what they do have is very good.
  • Sushi: Sea Dragon Roll - Shrimp tempura, Eel, Roasted Garlic with spicy masago and Eel sauce...yeah it was ok at best. The rice was too sticky and really all I tasted was a lot of Eel Main Dish: Honey Walnut Shrimp- Pretty good...shrimp were large and full of flavor. Just the right combination of salty and sweet. The walnuts were perfect. Just wish this dish didn't cost $27 Side: Abalone Congee- Had high hopes....really bland. No flavor at all. big disappointment!
  • Jasmine Dusted Chicken - yeah this dish sounds good. However....what a wasted $22. The chicken was chewy and way over cooked. After a couple bites I pushed it aside. The green beans were good....but I wasn't pleased with paying $22 for green beans.
  • I must admit that the food was much better than we thought. Hubby got the Beef Tenderloin with Asparagus in Black Pepper Sauce and I got the Shrimp and Pork Wonton Noodle. His beef was tender and tasty. He usually doesn't care for asparagus but he ate them all! My noodle put many San Francisco restaurants to shame! The bbq pork was tender and had some fat in it, the way it's supposed to be. The wontons were plumped and filled with tasty shrimps. Noodles were cooked well. Broth was decent.
  • When looking in the windows, we saw a family with 4 little ones under the age of 7 - OK this is OUR place. Great food, doesn't mind the kiddo making a mess, and even folded up the stroller for us when we walked in. The design and layout of the regular restaurant was very nice.
  • The portion of the Orange Chicken seemed to have been cut in half while the price increased, since July. The chicken was okay but it used to be better. The curry rice noodles were more bland than curry. The shrimp in with the rice noodles were not marinated and had no flavor.
  • I'm surprised at some of the reviews for this place. It wasn't spectacular, but I thought it was really decent for the price. We were on a budget for food and it was hard to find somewhere for dinner that was a little nicer, but only about $50 for two people. We ordered the steamed potstickers which were fine. The combination fried rice and the red curry coconut chicken were both really good. Now, I am not rating these on any kind of 'authenticity' scale which I am skeptical of anyway. I thought they had full flavors, not greasy, and were very nicely portioned. The atmosphere here was fun, but not as themed as many of the other places in the MGM.
