In a city known for its buffets and five star restaurants , you wouldn’t expect to see any kind of Thai food, let alone good Thai food.
Venture off from the Las Vegas Strip and head down to Fremont Street , a little bit past the Fremont Street Experience and there it is, Le Thai Downtown Restaurant .
The restaurant is in the area of Fremont Street known as Fremont Street East , which is the entertainment area of downtown Las Vegas .
You’ll find nightclubs, Downtown Container Park, which I’ll talk about later in another post, and one of the oldest casinos in town, El Cortez, which at one time was owned by mobster Bugsy Siegel.
If you take a walk down this street, you will definitely miss Le Thai.
I know I have the many times that I’ve been in town.
The restaurant is open every day but on Monday thru Saturday, there’s happy hour and lunch specials.
The lunch special is from 11am until 3pm and it cost only $9.95 plus tax.
That’s a good deal if you ask me.
I love Thai food and on the special lunch menu, I was happy to see my favorite Thai food , Panang Curry on the menu.
You have a choice with all the items on the special of white or brown rice with either chichen, tofu, shrimp, beef, or pork.
I had white rice with beef, and lemonade.
I was asked by the waitress on a scale of spicy from 1 to 5, how spicy did I want my food?
I went for 2 and it was still spicy but oh so good.
I have had Panang Curry at other Thai restaurants , but not like this.
This curry was very flavorful and instead of string beans, it was loaded with carrots.
It was so good and so filling that I had enough for leftovers.
To say that I would recommend this restaurant to people if they are ever in Las Vegas , the Strip or even Downtown Las Vegas, would be an understatement.
If the weather is nice, you can sit outside and enjoy the view.
The prices are reasonable, even if you don’t do the lunch special or go for Happy Hour.
You can even do take out.
No matter what you do, you can’t go wrong with Le Thai Downtown Restaurant on 6th and Fremont in Downtown Las Vegas .
