Authentic Thai in a strip mall!

This tiny place is a wonderful surprise. The food is cooked fresh each time and is just like we ate in Thailand. Always a lunch special which is a great bargain. This family run business is friendly and good!

Tasty Thai style food. Mostly a to-go place, only two tables. The food overall is good, though I do question the quality of their meats. Salads are very good, but do watch out for preservatives if you are sensitive to that. Decent $$

Been here so often, I lost count. Many people rave about the other Thai place on the other side of town, but for my money, Lotus is the best bang for your buck. If you like the classics like pad see ew, spicy noodle, and pad thai, you won't be disappointed.

I love this place, but I have to say I was not very pleased with the pho. I prefer the pho at Mandarin Gourmet on Madonna. On the other hand, the rest of the food was great! I took one star off because of the mediocre pho.

This place has the best thai food! All their food is made to order and they can spice it up or not depending on your preference. Always great!

Small hole in the wall place. Had really good wonton soup, thai iced tea, and average pad se ew. I would go back.

I actually dream about their yellow curry, and their pad see ew is really good. Oddly enough, the pad thai isn't really that great. Really reasonable prices and consistent quality

Recently relocated and heard a lot about this place and finally tried it. Did not disappoint. Nice selection of asian foods - only Pho in SLO - mongolian BBQ - patio dining - right near train station - pleasant environment. Will become 'regulars', no doubt!

I have known Mike and Nusrhia since they opened their first place in Los Osos California. I was a nightly customer. Their Pad Thai, Seafood Noodles, and Thai Rice is the best I have tasted anywhere! I moved from Los Osos back in 2003 and have not been back since, but this October 2010 I will be returning with my... More
