A hidden wonder located off the casino floor at the Golden Nugget, Lillie’s Noodle House offers upscale Cantonese, Szechwan, and Pan-Asian cuisine. The small but intimate dining room provides a quiet respite from the bustle of the hotel-casino, with sophisticated and modern touches like dark hardwoods, white drapes, red chandeliers, and vibrant art work on the walls. Though no special preparation is necessary to dine at this casual Far East favorite, you’ll feel like royalty while enjoying one of their first-class meals.
Lillie’s expansive menu offers a wide variety of Asian tastes suitable for taming any craving. Appetizers, soups, salads, noodles, rice and vegetables, wok dishes, and other specialties are among the selection, along with an array of traditional and gourmet sushi rolls, nigiri, and sashimi. The Crab Rangoon is a popular starter, crispy wontons filled with crabmeat and rich, curried cream cheese. Entrée favorites include the Kal Bi Steak, a 10 oz. choice rib eye, prepared Hawaiian style and served with fried rice, and the Crispy Fried Sole, coated with panko breadcrumbs, fried golden brown and served with wasabi mashed potatoes and lemon-aioli dipping sauce. The Lillie’s Special Stir-Fry is another signature dish, with chicken and shrimp sautéed on a hot wok Mandarin-style with Chinese vegetables.
Lillie’s sushi is also quite flavorsome, ranging from safe choices like the California Roll and Tempura Shrimp to more adventurous selections like the Spicy Tuna and Smoked Freshwater Eel. The perfect accompaniment to these seafood bites are Lillie’s rare and premium sakes, which can be enjoyed hot or chilled. And be sure to leave some room for dessert; Lillie’s offers traditional desserts with an Asian twist, such as Ginger Crème Brulee, as well as an Exotic Fruit Fusion of Lychees, Dragoneye, Pineapple, and Mandarin Orange.
A premier Asian restaurant downtown for several years, Lillie’s Noodle House provides surprisingly tasty meals in a beautiful and elegant environment.
