“I have been a loyal customer and a big fan of Cathay House for years. In recent months, we have seen a large increase in Asian gaming and we recognized the importance of catering to those customers,” said
Palms owner George Maloof. “Cathay House is a popular restaurant for the Asian community, and we are excited to bring superior Chinese cuisine to our property. This restaurant just adds to the great list of dining
establishments we have at the Palms.”
Led by Executive Chef Henry Garcia, Dim Sum Chef Ping Kwan Lam and Dining Chef Raymond Kwan, the assorted menu offers something for every craving. Guests may delight in popular favorites from orange chicken,
lettuce wraps and beef broccoli to jelly fish and salt and pepper pork chops. Main entrée options include spicy clams with wine and supreme steamed chicken. Poached fresh prawns, steamed whole flounder and fish
filets in black bean sauce are a sampling of the fresh seafood selections. Hot Pot options consist of sizzling frog, spicy eggplant and mixed mushrooms. Sui Mai-pork and shrimp dumplings, homemade fish balls, stuffed
tofu, chicken feet with special sauce and BBQ pork buns are a few of the fresh dishes of dim sum served tableside.

Described as “a restaurant within a restaurant,” Cathay House is an exclusive space inside 24/7 Café. Conceptualized and designed by Tandem Las Vegas, the restaurant holds a modern Chinese flair featuring a focal, large
back wall adorned with large red and black Koi fish appliqués. A custom-created chandelier of Asian parasols anchors the space and suspends from the center ceiling creating a warm and welcoming ambiance for every customer.
