...I expected that there would be more "fusion" items combining Chinese and Mexican flavors; instead, there are Chinese items, Mexican items, but the two never met up. It's like two restaurants got together in the same space, and that's it (ever see the KFC next to a Taco Bell in the same building? Yes, China Poblano is in a different... More

This place is fun. Tucked into the Cosmopolitan Hotel, it offers two bars--one Chinese and one Mexican. You can order from either or both menus. Super delicious and economical (and there is table seating if you don't want to watch the food prep, which is too fun. Get the lamb dim sum!

It's no coincidence that two of my favorite cuisines - Mexican and Asian - both rely heaving on rice and spice in their dishes. It should be no coincidence then that fusing this two styles together would produce such a successful result at China Poblano. My girlfriend insisted on taking me since she had tried it before, and I must... More

Maybe we were wrong to see it as a Chinese restaurant, because its Chinese food was pretty bad... salty shumai, sour sesame noodle, bland wonton; I guess the chief tried to be creative... And portion is very small too. Did not bother to try Mexican food because I was worried I'd get really mad if I spent $100 for no... More

$10 for a single small taco which lacked any taste, deal breaker for me. Shared six different plates with my wife, none terrible but nothing great either. Was generally unimpressed with the food after reading previous good reviews. Our server was very good though. Noise place, practically had to yell across the table to have a conversation. My tip is... More

Tacos are amazing,guacamole is awesome. Anything from either side of the Chinese/Mexican side of the menu is great. Quick service and great price for a meal in Vegas!

Inside the trendy Cosmopolitan Hotel, this restaurant offers Chinese/Mexican fusion. Imagine a taco with Chinese ingredients, or a fried rice dish with Mexican flavors!!! Worth a try and it's probably the most affordable and casual of the bunch in the hotel (other than the secret pizza place). Very courteous staff and easy to understand menu. Price is...well Vegas but not... More

This awesome restaurant offers delightful little dishes like pork carnita tacos, sui mai, lettuce cups and the worlds best fish taco! You could literally taste every single ingredient, seriously good. Food comes out as its prepared, so a nice grazing type meal. Friendly and attentive staff, that explain how the menu works and offer great suggestions. Got there 20 minutes... More
