From the outside,Lotus Vegan, in NoHo (the up-and-coming North Hollywood,California) looks unpretentious----to the extent that I probably would have driven right past without a second glance if I had been passing. However, my friend Jeff had done some homework, and we went specifically to this venue after reading some good reviews. We are both vegetarians---everything on the menu at Lotus... More

Lotus Vegan is one of my favorite places to go when im in the mood for thai food. I love the fact that i can eat ANYTHING here, and that theres something for everyone when we come. Even my VERY picky 2y.o. likes the food. She gets the skewered chicken or nuggets, and eats it every time! They have a... More

When I go here, I am at ease to order anything on the menu. Not only because I trust everything to be vegetarian but because everything tastes so damn good. Ofcourse their specials can sometimes be a hit or miss but some of the classics are good because they are not oily or overly salty like the typical Thai restaurants.... More

I met a group of friends for dinner at Lotus Vegan last night, & I was pleasantly surprised. I am not a vegan, but several of our group are vegans, so I was skeptical. The food is tasty. The service is ok. The space is plain/functional, but clean. It is very inexpensive! If you're a vegan in or near the... More

My favorite Thai food restaurant. Delicious food and great service. After trying their Pad Thai I haven't find anything as good as theirs.

Vegetarians and vegans are in for a treat at Lotus Vegan in North Hollywood, California. They have an outstanding array of tasty vegan dishes that even your non-vegetarian friends will enjoy. The restaurant is very modest and unassuming. The atmosphere is not fancy or over the top, yet it is very pleasant. Everything, except for the food, is simple. Patrons... More

One of my favorite little neighborhood restaurants: delicious food, great service, excellent value, relatively inexpensive. Fabulous meat substitutes, including un-chicken and un-beef. My top favorite, their "Cowboy Burger" is the best burger I've ever had (and I've was a meat-eater for several years!). Their other dishes are very good too, my favorite Thai dish there being the amazing Pad See... More
