The Jasmine In Las Vegas

Dennis | Aug 12, 2001 07:11 AM

Hello,

I have just returned from my first ever trip to Las Vegas. One of the restaurants I tried was The Jasmine, located inside The Bellagio.

I wasn't staying at The Bellagio. Instead, I was staying at a hotel downtown. During a tour of the Bellagio, however, the menu of The Jasmine caught my eye. Therefore, I decided to make a reservation and give it a try.

Overall, I was disappointed. The prices were extravagent. For example a tiny little bowl of Wonton Soup was $7.50. I've had better Wonton Soup in a large tureen for four people at a lesser price.

My entree, the Chilean Sea Bass was decent but nothing special. It's price of $30 appears to be competitive with other renditions in the area.

Another criticism. I usually like a good cocktail before my entree arrives. I ordered a "double" but it tasted more like a "single." I ordered another one, and it wasn't any better. The Jasmine definitely served the poorest cocktails of any restaurant I tried during my trip to Las Vegas.

In regard to Chinese food, I had better luck with the fare downtown. There is a great little Chinese restaurant located on the second floor of The Horseshow, called the Gee Joon. They served the best Mongolian Beef I've ever had.

Have any of you tried The Jasmine inside the Bellagio?
Or the Gee Joon inside the Horseshow in downtown LV?

Comments?
