Full disclosure: Chef Roy Ellamar is Hawaiian and I find it hard not to love everything Hawaiian. While you might not find a Loco Moco on the menu you will find hints and influences of the chef’s Hawaiian upbringing in his style and in the flavors presented to you at Sensi. I’ll tell you that his steamed bun with braised oxtail will change your life and that is just the beginning.

If possible try to get a table with a view of the show kitchen. Take a look at the action and you get a clear view of a restaurant that is mixing it up and attempting to give you some fantastic options for your culinary adventure in Las Vegas. The atmosphere is casually classy so you’ll feel comfortable but it can be a slightly upscale spot. Don’t worry, this is not a white table cloth “shut up and let us impress you place”.
Be a little adventurous and move away from what you might usually order and you’ll be pleased.

How’s the food?
Sensi is versatile so you can get a few different experiences in the food. Asian spic coupled with Italian comfort and then the pizzazz of the seafood. You can have a steak but I’ll guarantee it will be presented with more excitement than you get at a steakhouse.
What you should try:
- Skuna Bay Salmon – Listen, I love the ocean and I love the mountains and this salmon is a picture of perfection. Vancouver Island flavor it’s as if you are tasting the crisp water and air of British Columbia.
- Roasted Octopus – It’s really a combination of exciting flavors dancing around you mouth like kids playing in the warm Mediterranean Ocean. I honestly can picture myself wearing a white lined shirt and some fancy sunglasses as I snack on this while sitting at a beach side table.
- Roasted Bone Marrow – The bone marrow was so brilliant that I forgot to take notes on the flat iron steak that came with it. Oh, it was just as impressive it’s just that the bone marrow was right at that spot where you want to spread it on crunchy bread and snack all night. Slightly fatty and full of beefy flavor.
- Thai Coconut and shrimp soup - This version of Tom Kha Gai will not make you forget about your favorite Thai Place back home but it will make you appreciate the ingredients as the flavors are pronounced and captivating. While your $3 soup at home might be a little flat with flavor this will make your senses perk up.
- The steamed bun with a small bowl of Pho – The Pho is on the bar menu so make sure to enjoy as the Oxtail dumplings change your perception of the Vietnamese restaurant you always ignore.
