A Classic Asian Cuisine Menu
You’ll have no problem finding the classic Chinese dishes you grew up on at the Noodle Shop in Mandalay Bay. The menu even has icons that make it easy to identify dishes that are hot, vegetarian, and gluten-free.
Below is a comprehensive review of all the sections on the menu and what you can expect when dining at the Noodle Shop.
The Menu at Noodle Shop Restaurant
Although small, the authentic choices of appetizers served at the Noodle Shop are not to be overlooked. Some of our favorites include the crispy vegetable spring rolls, steamed pot stickers, and edamame with Maldon sea salt. All of these dishes will get your taste buds ready for the more robust flavors that await you in the main courses.
While the Shanghai Style Lumpia may confuse you at first, it’s really just another name for egg rolls. Prices in this section range from $11.88 – $15.88.
Soups and Salads
For a lighter choice, the Noodle Shop offers a handful of soups and salads with Asian flavors. The Miso Soup is always a crowd favorite with its unique flavors but the Hot and Sour Soup is a great alternative if you’re looking for something with a bit of spice.
The Mixed Green Salad is what conservative eaters should focus on but the Seaweed Salad is where the real adventure is. Most options are $8.88 except for the Seaweed Salad which is $10.88.
While not many people think of soups as being filling, these Asian-style hot meals are typically enough to satisfy a hungry stomach. You’ll notice well-known traditional Asian soups filling up the menus at the Noodle Shop.
Classics like Pho, Miso Ramen, Udon, and Spicy Beef are all waiting to be enjoyed. For those wanting something different, the Laksa, Vegan Noodle Soup, and Wonton Noodle Soup are worth every sip of their flavorful broth.
Prices are all over for this section and you can expect to pay anywhere between $18.88 to $23.88.
While some Asian restaurants consider fried rice a side, the Noodle Shop puts them front and center. You have a choice of four different options that satisfy any kind of patron.
The signature option is the Yang Chow Fried Rice which comes with tiger prawns and char siu but the BBQ Pork and Sausage Fried Rice is just as good. Other options include a Chicken Fried Rice and a Cauliflower Fried Rice for all the vegetarians at the Noodle Shop. Prices will range for each item anywhere between $19.88 and $24.88.
Like with most other sections on this menu, the stir-frys have all the usual suspects that will satisfy most palates. The Drunken Noodles, Lo Mein, and Pad Thai are well known all around the world and the Noodle Shop does them all justice.
Some of the dishes even allow you to choose your type of protein from chicken, beef, and shrimp. If you aren’t feeling something classic, try out one of the dishes that are less known but still taste just as good. The Taiwanese Chili Garlic Noodles and Beef Chow Fun are both filled with Asian ingredients and will give you an authentic experience.
Prices range from $16.88 to $24.88 but most of the discrepancy is from the type of protein choices you have with some of the meals.
All the entree dishes served at the Noodle Shop come with a complimentary side of jasmine rice. You’ll want it too when you dig into your full plate of Orange Chicken or Broccoli Beef. All the meals in the entree section are packed with the typical flavors you’d expect from a good Asian restaurant.
Kung Pao, Mongolian Beef, and Thai Curry are all available and some entrees even allow you to select the type of protein you want. There is a vegetarian option called Buddha’s Feast for those wanting to skip any animal protein.
Prices are slightly higher in this section ranging from $18.88 to $26.88 but they are still considered affordable by most Vegas standards.
A small section of sides is worth adding to any plate on the Noodle Shop. Kimchi, a famous vegetable ferment, balances out all the strong umami flavors you find in Asian food with a tangy finish that cuts through it all. The Chinese Broccoli is steamed perfectly and the Garlic Green Beans are flavor-filled snacks that pair wonderfully with any entree.
A small selection of alcoholic drinks covers one page of the Noodle Shop menu. Imported Asian beers are available as are Asian spirit cocktails. There’s also a small selection of sake to give that authentic night out. Those wanting to stick with something they know will have a full bar and wine available to choose from.

Calm and Relaxing Atmosphere
While the entrance to the Noodle Shop is perhaps the most exciting part about the decor, the inside is straightforward and lowkey.
