Family birthday meal

Had a brilliant meal took a little time to arrive but we were warned of that when we booked. It was well worth waiting for, the food was so good. I think I'll be going back.

We walked in from the noisy, chaotic Station Rd and entered another world, one of calm serenity. The interior of the restaurant has been convincingly turned into a Thai bamboo house and we soon forgot the rest of Taunton outside. The service was prompt and friendly, the fresh-cooked food was simply delicious and the Chef even came into the restaurant... More

We ate here after seeing recommendations for its variety of vegetarian food. The decor could do with an update but the friendly welcome and service more than made up for it. The food tasted authentic and fresh and we even received one of the famous shoulder massages! Would definitely go back again if we are ever in the area.

The restaurant itself is a bit dated, but the food is lovely and the people over there are really nice, at the end of your meal the owner will give you a massage while your finishing your meal and she is really nice. The food is really good and it looks original. I would say definitely recommended.

The meal here was perfectly pleasant although a little bland, which seems the norm when eating Thai food outside London. Maybe the correct ingredients are difficult to come by. The place had an uninviting smell of disinfectant which one got used to. Did get a quick Thai massage from the boss on our way out though!

We've eaten at The Lotus Flower a few times and each time it has been lovely. The food is always fresh and tasty. The menu could be a little more elaborate, but what is there is very good. The staff are always very friendly and clearly want you to be happy with all they offer. The interior decor that has... More
