Options instead of Lotus of Siam?

Am in LV infrequently to visit friends. Love LoS but waited too long to make a RSVP. Any suggestions for similar quality, ambiance, etc. NOT on the strip? Off the top of my head, I love their drunken noodles with duck, crispy garlic shrimp, papaya salad. I may have to just do a walk in…

Maybe Lamaii? I had the Panang crispy duck there a few years ago at the Spring Mountain location and it was good, not quite as good as LoS though.

There’s a local Mexican place there, with three locations, called Lindo Michoacán. It’s some of the best I’ve ever had in 50 years of Mexican restaurants.
