Love their freshly made dumplings; I understand it is all made to order.
Plenty of varieties of dumplings and noodles to choose from.
We typically order pork dumplings, and beef noodles.
In a shopping center north of Spring Mountain Road, before Desert Inn Road.

We visited Las Vegas from SF Bay area. What a surprise to find a Chinese restaurant close to strip with delicious food, which is second to none compared to the numerous Chinese restaurants in bay area.

we ordered 手工面,生煎包、豆沙饼、蒜苗炒腊肉, all of them are tasty.

Have eaten here twice and would go back anytime. Was hosted both times by a Chinese man ( and the second time also his wife). Both times we tried and large number of different dishes, all of which were beautifully prepared. Presentation and decor are okay, but it's the food that stars.

My brothers and I visited China Mama for lunch and it was very good. Portions are large and the prices are very reasonable. We shared a SMALL Hot and Sour soup - $6.25 - and we each had almost 2 full bowlfuls from the serving. The first time there we over ordered, not realizing how large the portions were, and unless you have a fridge it's wasteful. This is not your typical Cantonese style Chinese restaurant. There are many items on the menu that are really Chinese food. You can be as adventurous as you want, but know it will be cooked properly and it won't cost an arm and a leg.

Since my husband and I frequently visit Las Vegas, we have begun seeking out classic old Las Vegas spots and restaurants which are popular with locals. China Mama's is one of the most authentic Chinese restaurants in LV and so inexpensive that you can share several dishes when you dine there. The restaurant is located in the Chinatown area only a few miles from the strip. It is not too impressive to look at inside or outside, located in an old bank building in a small strip mall as are most small businesses in this area.
We ordered three dishes: Steamed Juicy Pork Buns #P23 on the menu(recommended in several reviews) they were delicious - eight pork dumplings to an order;Pan Fried Shrimp and Leek Pillow #P31 a dish that reminded us of a frittata, also very good; and Shredded Pork Stir Fry with Dried Tofu #H16(recommended by our server). The last dish was very interesting since the 'noodles' in the stir fry were tofu which had been dried and julienned. We were served tea at no charge and rice for .50 and our bill was $31.73!
The server was efficient although not overly friendly, but the overall service at this restaurant is acceptable. We will definitely make this restaurant a regular stop in Las Vegas.
