Wazuzu Wynn Menu & Prices
The Wazuzu specialties start off the menu featuring delicious lunch or dinner dishes unique to various regions. Try the Thai Spicy Basil Stirfry with onions, bell peppers, sweet basil, soy sauce, and shrimp, beef, or chicken.
The Wok Tossed Mongolian Beef with Chinese broccoli, onions, scallions, and bell peppers is beyond tasty, while the Sizzling Beef with SRF gold strip loin, seasonal mushrooms, asparagus, and black pepper sauce makes for an excellent dinner dish. The Korean Braised Short Rib is another popular and delicious choice.
Japanese restaurants are often sought after for their creative sushi rolls. Wazuzu Asian Fusion & Sushi Bar lives up to its name with a tasty Lobster Tempura roll featuring a garlic ponzu aioli and the Red Dragon Roll with spicy tuna and shrimp tempura topped with tuna sashimi, Japanese rice crackers, and sweet chili. The Snake River Wagyu Tataki with crispy leeks, serrano chili, pickled mustard seed, and Sichuan aioli tastes decadent and will leave a lasting impression on your taste buds.
As you can see, there is a lot of interesting sushi rolls at Wazuzu that you won’t find in other restaurants.
Sushi and sashimi are staples of Japanese cuisine. Try decadent seafood by the piece with choices such as Scallops, Sea Urchins, Snapper, Freshwater Eel, and Softshell Crab.
Now if you want a starter to get your hunger ramped up before digging into the rest of the menu, there are a lot of tasty options to choose from.
Take a peek at the Roti Panag, which is a Pangang chicken curry with Indian flatbread, or the Tom Yum Goong Soup with mushrooms, prawns, lemongrass, lime, and chili.
The salad menu has a Thai Shrimp Salad complete with papaya, kafir lime leaf, lemongrass, broiled shrimp, and more, topped with Thai spicy vinaigrette, and also a Japanese Seaweed Salad. The Sichuan Beef salad with flank steak, scallion, cilantro, crispy leek, and a spicy Sichuan soy dressing is a must to complement your meal with vibrant flavors.
The dim sum section of the menu is full of fun dumplings like the Har Gow, a steamed prawn dumpling; Pork Potstickers, which are pork and cabbage pan-fried dumplings; and the Jade Dumpling with spinach and shiitake mushrooms.
You can also get other awesome Chinese-inspired snacks, such as the Cha Siu Bao, a steamed bun with barbecued pork.
Rice & Noodles
Don’t miss the drunken noodles, which were featured on Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.” The drunken noodle has fresh rice noodles, sweet soy sauce, Thai basil, onions, tomatoes, chilies, and eggs. You can get drunken noodles with chicken, beef, or shrimp.
Other rice and noodle dishes at Wazuzu include Wazuzu Pineapple Fried Rice with Chinese sausage, roasted duck, shrimp, and pineapple with curry spice. There’s also the Imperial Wagyu Fried Rice, Shoyu and Tonkotsu Ramen, Cantonese Chicken Lo Mein, and more!
Of course, a visit to Wazuzu wouldn’t be complete without something from the dessert menu. It is the perfect encore for a stunning lunch or dinner. Try the Pandan Toast, Mochi Ice Cream, Ice Kachang, or Wazuzu White Chocolate Pear. With unique combinations, no matter which dessert you eat, you can’t go wrong with these options.
Though you could just have a beer, the cocktails at Wazuzu are innovative. For instance, the Land Of Smiles has Toki Japanese Whisky and Woodford Reserve Bourbon with rock melon, lime, electric dragonfruit, ube tea, and pineapple. The Kimarite Margarita is more than your standard margarita featuring 818 Reposado Tequila, Thai basil yuzu peppercorn sour, Thai chili, Chinola passion fruit liqueur, and organic agave nectar.
Wazuzu at Wynn Las Vegas gives vegetarians and vegans plenty of options in just about any menu category. They even go the extra mile by providing a special soy sauce for vegans on the table.
As far as entrees, the Vegetable Delight with tofu, garlic sauce, cauliflower, carrots, and celery is a must try, though vegan options such as the Vegan Eel Roll and Vegan Rainbow Roll are great for both lunch or dinner.
The price of Wazuzu is more than a chain restaurant, though less than the fine dining options at the Wynn Las Vegas. The Pan-Asian menu ranges from $7 to just over $68. Of course, the Wazuzu specialties, sushi rolls, noodles, and rice dishes are on the higher end but come with more, while starters, dim sum, salads, and sushi are on the lower end.
So, how is Wazuzu rated? Some reviews mention that Wazuzu at the Wynn isn’t anything different from what they could get at a local Chinese or Thai restaurant, though others boast about the unique flavors inspired by Chinese, Japanese, and Thai cuisine.
A negative review tends to make more of an impact than a positive review, but luckily, there are far more positive reviews of Wazuzu than negative. When it comes to restaurants in Las Vegas, Wazuzu is a solid lunch or dinner option if you are looking for something between fine dining and a grab-and-go cafe.
Reservations are not required at Wazuzu at Wynn Las Vegas as it is more of a quick bite feel despite the atmosphere making it feel like a special occasion.
