We visited here on our first night in Vegas, being led by reviews on trip advisor. We were unfortunately really disappointed and wish we would have chosen somewhere else to eat. While there were some interesting flavour combinations the entire concept is just really odd. We've eaten good street food before and this just doesn't cut it; it would have... More

Combining Mexican and Chinese, my two favorite foods, could be risky, but China Poblano pulls it off spectacularly. It is super high-quality of both types of foods. You will be treated with familiar foods that are amped up with higher-quality ingredients than your typical restaurant. Order the fried rice - it is full of fresh vegetables and is amazing. Also,...

We stopped by the semi- seedy Cosmopolitan and wanted to see what the Chinese/Mexican fusion was all about. We started by ordering a chicken problano and a tongue taco. While waiting we were being watched over by a large image of the ruthless Mao Zedong. The more I thought about my brother being tied up and shot in the head... More

...to the staff by possibly embarrassing them that someone over 40 may want to eat in their restaurant. The food, despite the interesting combination of cuisines, was good and, I guess everyone has a different perception of cost expectation, and thought was fairly priced for the quality. We chose a selection of dishes and shared. The restaurant's downfall was the... More

We had a very nice lady taking care of us. She was really patient and very nice at all times! Prices could be a little lower, the food was great though! The overall experience was great and we would come back!

How does this work? I love Chinese food. Mexican food generally hates me. I love it though. This little hidden gem is a must stop to try something very unique. The combinations they came up with were totally innovative and scrumptious. The service is excellent. The place is nicely decorated. The quantity should be okay. It's really what we used... More

The pop/asian/latino design is quite eye-catching and I was afraid it would be more of a gimmick than a great restaurant. However the food was sepctacular. Just what I needed after living in "paradise" which has no fruits or vegetables. Highly recommend the 20 veggie rice & saltair margaritas. I imagine everything is pretty good. The one criticism is that... More

The place is a little scary from the outside but wonderful inside. After walking in you find a hip, trendy restaurant that is amazing. The combination of food selections are very deep with flavors from China and Mexico. The combination of flavors are unique for several of the dishes. I ordered a taco, dim sum and a soup and all...
