We went as a party of three and waited for about 25 minutes during early afternoon on Christmas Eve....so we expected the area to be busy. The line went fairly fast and had nobody else wanted to sit at the bar seats (ask about this to try to get in faster) we could have been seated more quickly. Once seated, we got service to order quickly, even with a full house. The food was served fairly quickly, except for one dish which took about 25 minutes. As for food quality, this is the real deal and pleased the entire family, one of which is from China....and all of us knowing authentic food while in China. The noodle bowls are fantastic in flavor and size, and the black bean noodles were some of the best I've had in a very long time. I would go out of my way to find this place. It's in the lower level of the Venetian. From the south entry near the Walgreens, it's on the left side as you pass through the casino. This place is constantly busy with Chinese, who know a good place for real authentic asian food when they see it. Except for the wait for the one dish, which was okay given how busy they were, there were NO flaws here whatsoever. Appetizers were wonderful, and reasonably priced. Entree dishes were well portioned and very reasonable for being in a centrally located upscale place. It was between this and the Chinese place at the Mirage (which was empty at noon...tells you something)...and this place gets my vote as my #1 place for lunch anywhere in Vegas. If you're not in the mood to wait, you can order to-go and avoid the wait for a seat.
